Actually I would like to report some progress in the last 24 hours.

I went through default.php (the file for the article) and found Template Creator adds 3 classes (tck-article, tck-article-title and tck-article-body).

I then went into EasyLayouts, built a single article layout from blank/scratch and added a row where I had set the class to tck-article. I then nested 2 more rows inside that row and set tck-article-title and tck-article-body to the relevant content of that row and Template Creator generated styles were applied.

OK so this is not an "out of the box" solution but definitely a step in the right direction.

However before anyone gets too excited, I haven't tried applying Template Creator generated classes to anything other than single article in EasyLayouts at the moment.

Yes will be pleased to report back on my progress (hopefully) with EasyLayouts. One thing I can definitely say (based on my work this morning) is using columns rather than percentages is definitely the way forward.

I am now having reasonable success combining Template Creator CK and EasyLayouts but have seem to have hit a problem trying to use CSS values created in Template Creator's Blog Layout.

As you can see from the screenshot, I have entered 50 for a 50px gap which I thought would be called when I call the class tck-blog. However I am wondering if I am calling the incorrect class?

Hi
this is the "article" styling, so it will be used by .tck-article for each article listed in the blog (inside .tck-blog)

OK now it's working.

If anyone else is following this (future reference possibly), I have uploaded a few screenshots to explain the process.

No problem. I am really starting to like combining the drag and drop features of EasyLayouts and very powerful styling capabilities of Template Creator CK. It does mean getting your hands a bit dirty but I am learning CSS tricks that I would have never thought of.
