Breakpoints part 1
A breakpoint is where you can adjust a website’s layout or style for different viewport sizes. Each breakpoint has a starting point, an end point and a range in between. Editor X has 3 default breakpoints at common device sizes: desktop, tablet and mobile. Jump between breakpoints, customize them and add new ones using the breakpoint navigator above your canvas.
Structure vs style
The structure, (hierarchy) and data, (text, media etc.) of your site always stay the same, but at every breakpoint you can customize the layout and style of your content.
The cascading rule
Changes you make to a site’s layout or style always trickle down to smaller breakpoints. For example, if you make a change on desktop, you’ll see it on mobile—but if you make a change on mobile, the desktop design won’t be affected.
Changes per breakpoint
When you’re working at a smaller breakpoint and you make a layout or style change, this automatically overrides any changes that cascaded down. For example, if you change a button’s color on tablet, you override all the changes you made to that button on desktop—but because tablet is larger than mobile, your new change will still trickle down to mobile.
