[Pro] Responsive Text

Hi all,

We’re in the midst of designing another site, and we require different break points to provide Responsive Text displayed at different text sizes as the break points hit.

Some of you may know Caleb Grove who gives examples of how to do this and a download of the site showing alterations to the CSS, and/or, then also using the ‘Extended’ dialog. All of which seem easy enough. (is there another way? I don’t know)

However, I’ve noticed the behaviour of the Responsive Text changes based on some of the available options within the ‘Inspector’ dialog. For example, when I select Caleb’s example html container (with text inside) I CAN access the CSS checkbox feature. However, when I try to copy what Caleb has done and create the same box it only wants to default the container to a layer - and so changes the Inspector dialog not making available the CSS checkbox. It’s driving me mad !!

I think I must be doing something fundamentally wrong with the container box I’m creating. To be clear, I’m just putting an html text container on a page, and I’d like to access the CSS checkbox on the ‘Inspector’ dialog. Or alternatively, get responsive text to work for different break points at different text sizes, that DON’T sit in a layer :slight_smile:

You can download Caleb’s example to here http://calebgrove.com/articles/responsive-text-in-freeway-7

Once you have, just add a new html text container and it seems to always go onto a layer, which is not what I want.

many thanks in advance
Robert

I think you need to brace yourself and get ready for something called a manual. You definitely should try page 4 on this one to learn everything about responsive inflow/inline layouts:

Ah, all this knowledge, stop the floods …

Hi Richard,

thanks for the link juice (laughed with your manual ref)

Let you know how I get on.
thanks

Well, it looks like Richard has you on the right track regarding the “CSS” checkbox.

However, I need to interject. :slight_smile:

Wether or not you see the “CSS” checkbox (in other words, if it’s an inflow or a layer item) will have no effect on responsive text. It is totally separate. In my demo file, the HTML items are inflow, which is why you see the different inspector settings, but this is just a layout technique, not a technical requirement for responsive text.

Ehm Caleb, I was referring to the last paragraph on page 4 regarding inline html items:

Now, because we are working with inflow layout, you first need to double-click in the page area itself (so you can see the flashing text cursor in the top left corner of the page area) and then go to Insert>HTML item to place an HTML in the flow of the page div.
