Absolute / Relative positioning

In case of absolute positioning:

.relative {
    position: absolute;
    left: 50%;
    transform: translate(-50%, 0);


  • left:50%: the block starts at 50% left going to the right
  • transform: translate(-50%, 0): then transform with a translate of 50% of the box length to the left

On Bootstrap, this is the class:

  • for the parent: position-relative
  • for the child: position-absolute top-50 start-50 translate-middle

.parent {
  display: flex;
  margin-top: 40px; /* Below the control button of the preview */
.child {
  margin-left: auto
  • The HTML
<div class="parent">
