I'm trying to move the category page's toolbar above the left and right column in the 2columns-left layout so it spans over both the left column and right column, but nothing seems to be working.

In my theme's catalog_category_view.xml I have the following:

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="2columns-left" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <move element="product_list_toolbar" destination="columns" before="div.sidebar.main" />

You can not do it. This feature of the system... see my question in github issues.


The tool bar in M2 is a little convoluted. Take a look at this article, it will tell you why.
