Designing for mobile


#1

So… I’ve been loving learning Webflow. However there’s something I can’t get my head around.

When using the mobile landscape view in the designer. It makes no sense. It isn’t even displayed at a landscape ratio? I’ve been struggling to design for mobile because of this. Having to constantly use a phone as reference

Please let me know if I’m doing something wrong here.

That break point is very misleading. A) it’s trigger is not landscape orientation but width of the browser. In different words it doesn’t matter if the phone is in landscape or not if the with is certain size it will change to that break point. B) webflow should also address/give us the ability to set view port hight in designer. Not having that option makes using vh units impossible.

Thanks for clearing that up a bit @FilipSipos

Currently trying to optimize a horizontal scrolling site without an effective way to view/ design is prooving difficult.

I usually keep the published site open in chrome and inspect it as what ever mobile simulation you want.
