  1. @Chris @Chet : I tried to play around with app:keylines and layout_keyline, but couldn't figure out the way to use them, can you please provide some tips on it. Thanks.

    1. In you CoordinatorLayout you need to add:

      Where @array/keylines points to an integer-array with int values of distances (in dp) from the left margin.

      Then in the CoordinatorLayout children's you can specify which keyline it should follow by using the index of that keyline in the keylines array:

      It seems that it only works for direct children of CoordinatorLayout.

  2. I am unable to find any documentation on keylines. Any help?
