When switch to design mode open design dialog of colctrl & make sure entries in Allowed Formats field are added.
Also copy /etc/designs/geometrixx/static.css file to your custom designs & verify.
I had the correct entries in Allowed Formats field. I tried copying the static.css from geometrixx site into my design but I still does not see the entries in dropdwon when I edit the colctrl component.
In one of my other site, I do have the colctrl working fine without any need to copy static.css from geometrixx. Not sure what is wrong with teh current site
Is both sites hosted in same publish instance or different.
Have you updated the jcr content in etc/designs/jcr:content/<"your design"><"page component"><"parsys"> with <colctrl> node.
2;cq-colctrl-lt0 2 Columns (50%, 50%) 3;cq-colctrl-lt1 3 Columns (33%, 33%, 33%) 4;cq-colctrl-lt2 4 Columns (16%, 16%, 16%, 33%) 4;cq-colctrl-lt3 4 Columns (25%, 25%, 25%, 25%) 5;cq-colctrl-lt4 5 Columns (20%, 20%, 20%, 20%, 20%)
Also add the styles curresponding to the class names.
