Looks like I got excited and misread the text. I thought the Design Tab now supported breakpoints. :sweat_smile:
Anyways, breakpoints control in Design View is a good addition.
Still awaiting the Design Tab to come out of beta. :crossed_fingers:

We are working on this currently :slight_smile: Amazing new options are coming there :slight_smile:

What is the new global option ‘Reset Panel Sizes’ for? At first glance it looks like it might be for setting the panels to their defaults, but there is another button for this. I had hoped it would store the panel settings I have set up currently, but it doesn’t seem to do that.

I’m also not clear about the purpose of a related feature: setting breakpoints in Design view. Is this for people who have changed Bootstrap 4’s default breakpoints? I can see it would be useful in that case.

Update: I’ve just noticed the ‘reset to defaults’ button resets all global options; I thought it applied to the tab I was on. I think it would be a good idea to display a ‘are you sure’ type message (so I would have had a chance to cancel and not have to redo my settings).

Hi @TomD, thanks for the feedback.

The Reset Panel Sizes resets all the sizes to there defaults. This is for the left/right panels, but also for the inner panels vertical sizes.

The breakpoints are default the ones bootstrap uses, you can change it if you use different framework or a customized bootstrap. The media queries are currently not used, this is added for future updates we are working on that will require them.

The Reset to Defaults resets all the settings back to there default values. We could add an extra confirmation dialog with a warning that will reset all settings.

Thanks @patrick. That all makes sense.

On the matter of panels, I think it would be very useful if there were an option to save panel settings - ie to how they are currently set. I frequently click the Server Actions refresh button, and every time I have to resize the panels.
