Copy format from Desktop Break point...

So....lets just say that someone was trying to get a form to work using the Form Builder hook and wasn't really paying attention then realized AFTER everything is working including the SQL database and was very pleased with their work ...that they were in the 1024 breakpoint.

Is there a way to lets say copy all the formatting down to the 640 breakpoint, or would this moro...person have to redo all the formatting?

Not that this happed to anyone I know, but I was just wondering.

Not possible. This happened to me all the time in the early days of RSD (anyone remember that) or ill test the oldies here in the forum anyone remember RLMP??? :lol::lol::lol:

Anyway yea you will just want to go all the way down to the smallest breakpoint and set your styles there. They should copy all the way up to where you left off on the last breakpoint.

P.S. If you ever start designing using Grid remember to switch back to Fallback First mode or you will have to redo all the stylings in Grid mode.

Thanks Steve. Repetition is a great teacher.

Since we're on the subject of breakpoints, what's the disadvantage of turning these off to get content input then turning these back on and adjusting for smaller screens? I guess taking a desktop down approach vs. mobile first.

Oh yes, Steve, I made that error a lot of times in the old and not-so-old days. And I can well remember RLMP, I used it for a while, also before I got comfortable with RSD.

Yea your using a mobile first framework so I would just get used to designing in that order. It took me a very long time to get my head wrapped around this but now I wouldn't have it any other way.

I usually turn off all the breakpoints when starting on a new project. With 'mobile-first', there is such a small and narrow canvas to be seen, that I feel a bit squashed. So I widen my canvas, of course bearing in mind that I'm actually designing for phone size viewports. If I then need to change something for wider viewports, I try using as few breakpoints as possible. I have managed to create sites without setting a single one, just using %, vw as units for size/width/height. If I'm designing with CSS grid, I start off with fallback mode and no breakpoints, and only where I let the grid kick in, I need a breakpoint. (I'm still a novice with grid, though, so I haven't done anything complex with it yet.)

Thanks for the input..

I also find the "Squashed" mobile first a little strange to get used to. An it seems if you slip and make a change at a larger breakpoint, you can't get it undone, at least I haven't figured it out yet, tried clearing, setting for all, etc.. I just have to learn to pay attention to what I'm doing I guess.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
