This may be a dumb question, hopefully no one thinks that there is such a thing as a dumb question. When working with widths above 1060px how do you view all of the area. Above that size it goes behind the dashboard on the right and I cannot seem to figure out how to see the rest of the area to work the layout. Help please.

Thanks so much, I thought that had to do with previewing it through a browser!

Another question if you could, How do you achieve transparent backgrounds. I have had success in changing colors and putting in images, but have not been able to understand how to make any of them transparent.

After clicking a color thumbnail, the color picker pops up. In the bottom right, next to the hex color, a transparency value can be entered (1 for non-transparent going down to 0 for fully transparent)

What I would like to know is there a way to view the entire work space and be able to see any breakpoints that are out past 1190 px. I know we can preview but but the breakpoints are not visible in preview mode.

How did you set them Ernie? Are you working on two different size pc's?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Eric,

That's the strange part. Michael was working on my harborlights file and said he found one hidden just off the screen. I've never set one that far out so I just wanted to be able to check my file and make sure there wasn't one behind the 'curtain'.

I only have my desktop set up for any of the CC programs. I have a new laptop coming tomorrow for all my web software.

So, only one pc.

Maybe hidden on mine and not your's? Don't know. I just have a standard Dell 17" monitor. On my screen with your file open I see 7 break points clearly, and then an eighth one, which has just a small portion of break point circle peeking out just under the work console. You can hardly see that eighth break point on my screen. So do you see 7 or 8 break points?

I've got 8 break points and the outer most one is set at 950px. I have a 21" Acer monitor and I'll bet that's how this happened.

That would be like Eric asked, two different pc's. Two different resolutions.

From now on I will put that in any of my posts that have to do with breakpoints.
