Experiences with global classes. Webflow say no


#1

I read in the university lesson a while back global classes “we do not recommend using global classes as combo classes as there can be inheritance issues that can break your design across your project.” Does anyone use them easily in WF?

Globals seem to make sense to me. For example “BG light”, “shadow xl”.

Then if they are the go, how does this does not work with class naming. It looks like I might be heading into some atomic (which I am only reading about now) versus BEM brain implosion territory.

oh so if I were use globals I couldn’t select the global to edit it from any component it is applied to. I would have to maintain a style page of the global classes eg backgrounds, etc . :shushing_face:
