    Dragging does not work, creates errors.
    DL can not save. Manages to create 1st version but can not save to it. Cannot switch between versions. saved changes vanish on page reload.
    Trying to save 2nd time results in error message asking user to change theme's write permissions.

    Having the same issue of it not saving in WordPress 3.4.1. Are there any plans to continue development to get this working at all? It seems like an amazing plugin!

    Can't get this to work at all either! I was all excited about it, only to find that when the dialogue box pops up, I can't click on anything in it, or it just sends me to a different part of the page. Even the help box doesn't open properly. :-(

    Same here. I really like the control this gives over your theme, but it needs to be able to work with the latest WP version. I hope the developer gets it updated soon.

    It would be cool if this were updated for the most current version of WP, v3.4.2.

    Also, there should be some way to "track" or follow the code edits you make at the front (assuming these will be overwritten when/if the theme is updated) so that you can collect them in a custom.css file.

    I think this plugin shows a lot of promise, and could even be a premium paid plugin (oh! blasphemy!) if one doesn't already exist.

    Devs, keep up the good work, and let us know your plans for this. Thanks

    I'm gutted this does not work right. I've been using WP for a few months now. Coming from a full html wysiwyg editor ( dreamweaver and express web ) I have found 1 part of WP by far the most annoying.

    I've no issue with the idea of child theme's , plugins , tinkering with the CSS php code etc by the way. And there are lots of great functionality.... BUT !!!

    actually finding out the name of the object you want to change is AAARRGGGHHH. Let alone finding where it resides. ( please don't anyone respond with "just pull up the source code in the browser" ) there is so many calls from 1 piece of code to another to another that rarely works.
    i understand why its coded like this. but i think the usual answer of "go to line 2323 and cut/paste then try and find this line which will either be hear or hear or hear, but only if its a full moon etc, is getting a little old. I'm using wp as a tool. the end product is the site. If i wanted to spend hours in the code to do simple things i'd probably be a developer. ( as nodoubt the people who will slate this post will be )

    I'm running twenty twelve ( child ) and have a a single sidebar. All i wanted to do was to reduce the width of the sidebar and increase the size of the main content div. 2 min job in anything other than WP.

    spent a good couple of hours reading different posts all with totally different solutions ( non worked ) tinker with the #primary and #secondary entries ( counld't even find the entries ) and lots more besides.

    So u could imagine when i came across this plugin how happy i was. arrowed down to the content div and simply changed the width. Same for sidebar and then repositioned with a drag. God, we were back in the modern world :)
    Only to find the menu on the app wasn't working. all the options grey out upon selection of an existing theme except the create new, but that hangs if u try and use it.

    So for the benefit of the developer ..... Great job and please just finish off. you would make a mint.
    My thoughts are although most never dare say anything negative about WP, 99% of users would happily pay for this. ( lets face it, this basic functionality should be bundled with the base WP package never mind a plugin ).

    ...Alright but this is a self-help support forum. That's in large part how it's done...

    I'm running twenty twelve ( child ) and have a a single sidebar. All i wanted to do was to reduce the width of the sidebar and increase the size of the main content div. 2 min job in anything other than WP.

    @moxton I've read your entire post and just have one thing to add: Please open your own topic. It's considered rude to interrupt someone else's topic that way.

    ???? this is the same topic. DIV layer editor. The savior of WP ( in my eyes. everyone's entitled to their opinion )

    So i think your response was a little harse. But its what i expected for daring to say anything negative about WP.

    For a WP product to grow it needs feedback. And constructive negative critism is the best you can get. I don't really get this whole die hard WP community "circle the wagons" if anyone dares to make a negative comment tbh.
    Its a great product, but it appears "to me " that developement missed some basic things and forgot to go back to fill in the gaps. Anyway, don#t want to stray again from the subject of the number 1 WP plugin .. DIV layer editor..
