    First, love this!

    But, I see an issue that makes using it tough/confusing at times.

    When the customizer is open, the ‘width’ of the page you are on is reduced and the output CSS is not what you see when it is closed making editing widths hard to handle. This happens on my 1366 wide screen making it use the CSS media rules below 67em. How can that be fixed, worked around?

    And, now I see that I should probably have to use a bigger screen to see the rest of the @media above 48em (768px) like 67em (1072px), 79em (1264px).

    1366px – 300px (fixed width of customizer) = 1066px (just under 67em).

    1264px + 300px = 1564px so maybe 1600px wide will allow to see all the CSS and available @media queries.

    Could the customizer ‘undock’ or be moved to bottom (feature request)?

    Thanks for the new theme and I look forward to your reply.

  • Use your browsers Inspect Element feature, or a tool like Firebug, and make your CSS modifications within the inspection window instead, once you’re happy with the code you’ve applied you can copy/paste it into the Custom CSS field, this will allow you to at least view the site at full width whilst making code changes in real-time.

    Either that or use an IDE or text editor to make code changes.

    I do like the idea of undocking the customizer panel though, +1 for that.

    This isn’t really a ‘new’ issue, it’s just highlighted with the CSS customizer making it a little more important in many cases…

    I don’t know how this could be made better, but I think this would be best covered posting here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/32296

    Ah, I see many others noting the same already. I will follow that ticket and hope the dev.’s look hard at a fix.

    Thank you.

    I hope you find a fix this would be really cool!
