Problem adjusting articles to fit mobile devices
When adjusting my site to fit mobile devices I am having a problem with articles. For example, when I edit the size of the articles to fit on a tablet, it is automatically adjusting them on the main site too! This isn't happening with any of the other elemnts of the site, just the articles -is the any way to resolve this?
Great news! The articles element is now responsive, so changes on mobile with the articles element will no longer affect desktop.
Its been a year since this post and I too am having the same issues. I have abandoned the mobile device editor and are seeking resolve. Why is my content still moving on my desktop view if I am editing in mobile view? Thanks for your insight!
Thanks for your continued help, but I am still having many problems with this. I've now encountered issues with my site's top menu - it is too large to fit on smaller devices, but when I resize it in mobile view it is also shrinking the menu on the main site. I have since abandoned the mobile view & resized it correctly on the main site, and it now seems to have squashed the menu page names close together & I can't find any way of getting it back to how it was before.
I've also attempted to use the 'Mobile Site (BETA)' function but this created more problems than it solved:
- It added in an additional heading logo that can't be deleted
- When removing the 'mobile features' box it also deleted the main menu
- An un-deleteable text box was added underneath the image gallery
As things stand it seems like I'll only be able to offer my clients websites that work on monitors, but are useless on mobile devices.
If duplicating the articles element isn't an option, you may need to rebuild it in the mobile view.
We are currently working with a new responsive text editor to be released soon. Once it's released, this extra step of duplicating won't be necessary.
I will be sure to update you when it's been released.

Thanks for getting back to me - I've tried doing what you suggested, but duplicating the articles element doesn't seem to be an option that is available.
For your mobile design, so that the articles don't effect the desktop site, all you need to do is this:
1. In mobile view, duplicate the articles element
2. Select the original and turn off it's view for mobile using element visibility (in the properties panel)
3. Select the new one and do the same, but only keep the mobile view on
Now you can edit the duplicated articles element without it effecting the desktop view.
We are working hard on converting all the elements to be responsive. The articles element isn't ready yet. But this is a quick and easy solution!
Let me know if you need any more help!
