How do I stop this behaviour?

No matter what I do, I can’t seem to stop this from happening. I’ve tried every combination of grouping and centering I can think of, like centering the search bar first, placing the icons where I want them, then grouping them all together. As well as grouping them all together then centering the group itself.

Nothing will stop the icons from separating like this. It’s extremely frustrating considering Adalo does not give you manual control over margins etc. It seems like unless the element is directly “snapped” to the center, or edges of the page it will move wherever it gosh darn pleases.


So I think I mostly figured this out.

If you create a rectangle then group elements with it then help stop this kind of behaviour.
