my name is Steffen, I’m from Germany and I started rebuilding my website with Freeway 7 (Pro) last week.
I bought freeway because of it’s responsive features, and that’s the point, I don’t get the header responsive…
I have a .png file, imported it as a passthtough graphic and want to set it 5% distance to the left page corner and 5% to the right and a fixed distance to the top of 25px. So that it will fit to the page at every size.
If I export it the header is always a way to big and not in the browser frame.
Where is my mistake?
Sorry for that simple question, but I tried it for a few hours with no result.
I’m looking forward to getting your answers,
Steffen, we are having a similar problem, can’t find any help in FW reference manual appendices or online. Nothing addresses “responsive graphics” that I can find. Have looked and looked at Inspector for the graphic; no way to set percentages or flexible width that I can find.
Posted a similar question a few hrs before you did, still no replies to mine, either.
Sure hope someone can show some mercy to baffled FW users who are trying to get graphics to work right.
Sally&Matt, have you studied the Freeway video “Getting started with responsive web design in Freeway”. I learned a lot by examining the inspector panels in this video. Find it at the Freeway support page.
I saw the video a few times before I went to this forum
Just at the moment I solved my problem nearly. Now there is only one “jump” from default size (960px) to tablet where the header doesn’t fit the width… I have exactly the same settings at the header in every breakpoint!
H. Align: Left (%)
V. Align: Top
Width: Fixed (%)
5% to the left
50px to the top
max. width: 100%
So why is there a smooth transform from tablet to landscape and not from default to tablet? Maybe it’s something with the respnsive menu? This starts at tablet size?
HOLY SMOKES, got it! You were right, Rick, it was in the video, though glossed over in about a literal second.
Now everyone can ignore my question THANK YOU for pointing me to the video again!
Steffen, I will now go take a look at yours just in case it’s related. Not that I’m any sort of expert or anything, but maybe two non-expert heads can figure it out (Nein, ich bin ein Dummkopf ) Good luck!
