In the Muse tutorials on designing a responsive site, you are shown a pixel counter. As you reduce your browser width, you get a pixel count of your browser width so you can see where your design 'breaks' so you can adjust your break points. Where is it? The browser in use is Chrome, which I've just downloaded. It isn't there. Is it a Muse only feature, or do you have to install it into Chrome (where from?) or is it an app you can install in any browser?
A very useful feature I would love to have, but no search engine seems to know what I'm talking about.
Can anyone help?
are you talking about this tutorial?
if so then be aware that it was not made by Adobe, is a few years old and some design mistakes
I think the colour picker you are asking about is called a swatch and he didn't include it as a sperate file but you can export it yourself by opening the .muse file he gave you and (open any page of the site... it doesn't matter which one) goto your swatch panel and right click it on a black | blank part to get your menu
select delete all unused... only colours used somewhere in the entire site will remain after doing this
if you want a copy of these swatches for your local computer then press the export swatch library option to save them as a ASE file (imo the cc library is a better option for saving swatches but I showed this because thats the old way of doing it in Muse 2015)
DON'T USE COPY and PASTE in web design... this is an error that indesign users bring with them into Muse and nothing good can come from it... the resulting images are all named paste "host servers" will have a major problem with that
Many thanks, but that isn't the tutorial, it's the one about setting up a responsive website by Danni Beaumont Create a responsive website | - it looks like this:
The counter I am after looks like this:
I have just found something similar to add to Chrome, but it doesn't work quite like this. This is the one I am really after. Danni refers to it as a 'browser measuring tool', and you can see it working on the 6th video down the page.
Interesting point you make about copy and paste - I didn't know that, and wonder if it might be responsible for some problems I have had with this software. I'll have to look into that.
he wants a tool to say how many pixels in width his screen is as he drags it in or out mate
The thread opener is talking about the free Chrome extension „breakpoint“ (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/breakpoint), which is used by Dany in her Muse Jam Sessions. But there is no real need to answer this question any more, because the thread opener already has „reverted back to Freeway“.
Thank you - found it! Sadly it no longer works, despite the author claiming he has launched a new version ( I assume that's the one I'm using).
its a 3rd party development plugin... nothing to do with Muse
you could send her a shout out and ask what the name of that one is... prob get an answer after xmas now
they tend to be simple php query codes... which don't work on my systems because I block them... i don't recognise that tool sorry
Yes I know...just offering a little mind expansion on the side...:))
