I’m with PeteM here; I usually just give a heart to agree, but since others disagree, let me add some color: copy-paste has always been a 60% working and 40% “what? why?” feature for me.
- plenty of “no native clipboard data” errors that are fixed after copying again
- keyboard shortcuts are a perpetual hit-and-miss (click the panels first…)
- page interactions can’t be copied
- multiple divs cannot be selected
- frustratingly slow lag on longer pages & more complex divs
I’ve opened at least 10+ different bug reports in the past year and I’ll still go to Webflow first. They have a good thing going. But, limitation-wise, I think you all are just playing games.
Let’s really dive into Webflow’s limitations:
the Asset Manager is an anarchic mess and useless "manager": there are no folders , you cannot multi-select images , you cannot replace images throughout the site , you cannot rename images, and you cannot reorder images once they’ve been uploaded
Responsive images are half-baked: no support for
object-position still and background images are not responsively resized
Page interactions underscore that Webflow was kind of designed for landing pages: page interactions are not activated between separate pages and page interactions cannot be copy pasted
Interactions overall have a high friction: no way to organize interactions and an absurd amount of clicks are needed just to assign an interaction
Symbols, oh, symbols are also half-baked: interactions cannot be set on symbols , symbols cannot be nested (kill me now, multilingual), and symbols are extremely rigid that every pixel must be identical (though this is “apparently” getting fixed soon)
Webflow forms cannot feed into the Webflow CMS (why would anyone ever want to submit organized data into Webflow’s CMS?)
hard agree on multilingual, which again falls into the “landing page web designer moving into full-fledged website” theme you’ll see throughout Webflow
the hosting is heavily biased towards US/European users: the only way to get images (the bulk of your bandwidth) on more than HK & SGP Asia-based CDNs requires the costliest package.
the bugs, oh, the bugs. There are many little bugs hiding in every corner of Webflow. SVG rendering issues, interaction bugs, Designer crashing bugs, font-loading degradation, etc. I work 8+ hours a day in Webflow and, golly, does that give you some insight!
I have a lot of little pet peeves, which I won’t list, but I think the list above covers most “wow, I can’t believe it’s actually still like that in 2020” limitations of Webflow that most typical users will hit.
