    Each page as a unique class applied in the <body> tag. View the source of your page to see that.

    You can use that class to target CSS for just that page. You’ll need to add CSS to your media queries or default CSS, depending on whether you have a mobile-first or desktop-first design, to disable the responsiveness of key elements on that page.

    Thanks for the quick answer Steve, for a complete newbie what CSS should i add?
    I get the part about finding the body tag, but from there i’m quite lost…

    There’s no generic answer to “what CSS should I add” because you have to override the CSS that your theme uses, so it’s theme specific. You might post a topic in the forum for your theme so its developers can weigh in on the best approach for that theme.

    the theme is a classic Twenty Seventeen, but the page has been build with Elementor canvas, does that change something?

    Having child themed twentyseventeen a few times, I can tell you you’re going to have fun. (But only if you enjoy that sort of thing.) Putting Elementor on top of that just adds to the excitement.

    You’re going to need to do a deep dive into the CSS of your site.

    You might do better to figure out how to arrange that page so it works well on the narrow device view.

    That wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t for google spreadsheet, i have to embedd an editable spreadsheet on the page and it works great on desktop but on mobile the iframe becomes unresponsive
