Just bought it yesterday as an alternative to Xara Designer Pro X which I have been using for years, one feature I would like to see is the ability to upload your site to external hosts such as GoDaddy instead of exporting then uploading, this would save lots of time, also u could include two versions for users to use, one FULL / FAST PUBLISH, full would obviously upload the full site and the Fast Publish just what was edited. This suggestion comes from the Xara I was currently using, such a handy feature, I have attached a screen shot.

Here is a little suggestion

When one starts a new project how about having a pop-up message that appears informing us something like
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PLEASE NOTE:
ALL BREAKPOINTS ARE DISABLED
(perhaps a bit of explanation as to why)
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO ENABLE ALL BREAKPOINTS
by selecting the button below
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This should only appear for NEW projects and would totally alleviate the situation, where even experienced users sometimes forget that new projects are opened with those breakpoints disabled and then spend some frustrating time wondering why things don't appear to work.

Done it a couple of times myself, before remembering, and there have been numerous occasions where others have resorted to posting questions on the forum as to why something doesn't work or why they cannot get styling/display attributes etc to work at different breakpoints

Thank You Phat Monkey!

I was considering xara designer as an alternative of coffeecup. But I have found that xara is very complecatied software for begginers. And having various names and prices in compare to coffeecup designer.

Only components changes is required on coffeecup. Some basic changes would be mentioned on the coffeecup component page instead of comming soon.

Otherwise overall coffeecup is much better than xara premium.

This is the first time I am going to use web form builder and email designer for my new website https://www.secureyourvisa.com

If I will face any issue, I will create thread in user fourm. The website is basically for students who are looking to study in abroad.

Quite chalanging work for me!
Thanks

Would anyone else support the idea of being able to add comments in the html and css code?

I would really like to see SD handle showing fonts better, rather than leaving the app and use Google's font site to pick fonts. On my laptop, the font drop down can be hard to see.

This site was made before we were able to create components through the app:

My work in progress right now:
Components for the same as above + HTML Editor: https://mock-up.coffeecup.com

I think its Unanimous! hahaha hope Coffeecup sees these suggestions. Its always bothered me that the fonts were so incredibly tiny when viewing them in the dropdown.

Another good suggestion would be to have a page with all the font icons listed. I hate scrolling through to find ones I want to use because I do not always remember the name. I mean the search feature works ok but if your getting creative sometimes you forget whats all available to choose from.

Taking over the world one website at a time!
