A Rant - this software is brutal! -...

I spent a lot of time with this program to get a site (https://www.villageworkroom.com) just as I wanted it, and once it was good to go, I rarely made changes. INEVITABLY though whenever I do open it up, something is misaligned or not working and I have to spend time monkeying around with things just to get it back to the way it was before.

Latest problem today is the Facebook icon suddenly decided to become GIANT! I didn't do anything, just opened the file. Can't resize it, or I can't remember how to (why should that be a challenge to find?), so I guess it's back to starting over with that tiny aspect just because RSD decided to screw up AGAIN. I discarded the changes and didn't (can't) update my site. Awesome.

Forget V3 - I opened (did not save) the site file with that and it was such a disaster it probably would be easier to start over than try to fix all of that mess.

Rant over

Perhaps it is the breakpoints that need the styling doing rather than the whole thing.

If you feel it is the program that is at fault, then open a support ticket & let the CoffeeeCup team have a look

when you say you opened it in SDv3 I hope you opened a BACK-Up copy of the project file (or saved a backup copy somewhere, because once you open RSD project in SDv3 you will not be able to open the project in RSD again

Hi Joe,

My guess on this was a css conflict. I have seen this happen to my projects where the social elements become large.

Looks like you have resolved your issue.

Steve is right. I've also had some social icons outgrowing their intended proportions simply because I had styled the 'type' img with a certain size, forgetting that those icons are oftentimes img too. They need an extra class. So I could only blame myself, not the software. You'll learn the software to avoid the quirks, even though it might be the hard way! ;)

^^ This. ^^ I opened the regular file with V3 and assumed if I didn't save the changes it would be OK to use in 2.5. Luckily I backup everything so I had a saved copy.

Trying to get everything back to normal under V3 is going to be a challenge.

Yea once you open a file in SD3 your ok until the point you export or save. Once you export it will save it as an SD3 file instead of a CSS Grid file.
