Positioning Your Language Widget

Positioning your widget is also a breeze. Select from the two position modes:

Position Mode - Bablic Visual Editor

Select the sticky position if you want the widget to stay with the user when they scroll. This position will give you more freedom to move the widget around.

When you choose the fixed position the widget will be placed on a specific spot in the page and it will disappear from the screen if your users scroll down.

Based on your positioning mode, move the language widget around by clicking on the arrows, and use the move section to define the exact position by pixels, percent, em, rem or points.
