[Pro] Downsizing elements for smaller page - new site

I’ve spent a good bit of time on a website that I’ve now decided has a page size that is too large (1366px wide). I thought I could set up a new site with a smaller page size and simply copy and paste elements from the previous master pages to the new ones and resize them. It is pretty easy but I notice that in inspector all the elements retain their original size information after I’ve altered them. Seems like the new sizes would be reflected after transformation? I’m concerned that something is going to go wrong later because these dimensions are not changing. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

The way I would approach this would be to do a File>Save As and give the FW file a new name like ‘mysite960’ so as not to over write the original FW doc

1st job is then to set up a new site folder to publish into so that you preserve your existing site during the changes.

Now start at the Master pages by resizing them and their contents. Once the Masters are done go through the child pages repeating the process.

This way you still have the original site/document if it all goes pear-shaped.
