i want to split my spreadsheet into three horizontal blocks top, middle and bottom. I want the top to take up 15% of the screen, the middle 80% and the bottom 5%. I also want them to keep these % as the browser window is resized. Ive tried looking at relative , floating etc but havnt been able to work this one out
