I tried the card list as well and it is no better at managing the image size, nor is the swipe tool on the market. It is like Adalo does not care about the presentation layer and is just in a rush to get things out the door. Particularly when there are no such issues with a vertical list. It would be so much easier if you had a horizontal list that you could just drop elements onto and separately control those elements the same way you can on the vertical list.
As to what I am trying to do is have a horizontal row of images with descriptions underneath each of them. Ideally multiple text boxes underneath the image to describe multiple aspects of the image, all of which come from database fields.
In one case it is for the welcome screen and to show and describe how to use the app - like many other apps do. This would be so much easier if I could define the height and width of the image in the cell instead of just the width and the spacing between images which just tends to distort the image or put a huge margin around the image.
In another case I have a list of images with descriptions from a number of data fields, which would be simple if I could just put a series of text fields that pulled data from different fields. This would also seem to allow me to wrap text as required. However, neither of these options are available in the avatar list or the card list.
I have also thought about playing with layering images and as each image is clicked on have them swipe out to the left or right, and have series of dots on the bottom of the page indicating which image and text group is currently being viewed. The problem with this is that would require states to be managed or for the dot images to automatically toggle, which requires database updates and this is a very slow process in Adalo and often requires a screen update, which defeats the purpose.
I suppose I could just use layered groups and put a left arrow / chevron on one side and right arrow chevon on the other side and the image would slide to the left or right. But that does not seem to work well either.
A horizontal list like your vertical list would be the best and most flexibe option.
Any other suggestions
