thanks for chiming in. unfortunately, what I have was applied months ago in another project, that was duplicated. I have no idea at what point edits failed for the mobile, probably weeks ago.
wow, can't believe it's not possible. just another dumfounding UX mystery regarding Webflow.
but, WOW - manual backup, I didn't know was possible – I was thinking I needed exactly that on numerous occasions. that is REALLY great to learn. how did you figure that out? is there a shortcuts list somewhere? really wish they had a manual for this. didn't know about the alt shortcut, either. so, thanks for that!
