    I´m really confused with your style.css
    Why isn´t it written in each line? Totally hard to handle and finding styles, I wanna change ...

    Not sure what you mean, but FYI, if you modify theme files, your changes will be lost when the theme is updated - a better approach is to use a child theme or custom CSS plugin. A browser tool like Firebug will show you the CSS easily - copy that code to the child theme or custom CSS and change it there.

    It has been minified, which means compressed to save space.

    You're not supposed to make changes to the theme's files anyway, either set up a Child Theme or install a Custom CSS plugin to hold your CSS modifications.

    If you really really wanted to edit the theme's CSS you'd have to learn SASS, but you may struggle to find people on these forums who will support that bad practice.

    Glad to see people are helping eachother out! :)

    The stylesheet was indeed minified (automatically) so it would load faster. You can easily uncompress it with a tool called "Beautify css" just google it, there are hundreds out there.

    However like the others said it wouldn't be the best solution to edit the theme's stylesheet because with the next update the stylesheet will be overwritten and then you'll have to edit it again.

    Creating a child theme is rather easy, read more about it here:
