Designer Not Responding

I can login to Webflow and open the Designer without issue.

In Preview Mode

  • The Designer is not responding to any clicks.

I cannot exit Preview Mode and return to Design Mode.

I cannot select any links on a page… to go to a different page.

I can change Devices… but every link responds as described above (ie: no response)

I have exited Webflow - restarted the browser - restarted the laptop

  • No change
  • It’s been over 10 minutes

strange happenings…

After several restarts / reloads

I removed some un-used classes

and the issue went away ???

Be wary. It has happened to me as well. Sometimes their system seems to take some time to process changes.

Sometimes I think it’s just me going crazy again… but I swear it’s not me!

Happening to me as well. Very frustrating.

thanks for the heads up. We are looking into this now.

Can you please reply back or DM me your read-only links and the type of browser and version you’re using?

I haven’t had a major issue recently, that wasn’t resolved with a reload. But did notice it in the past.

I typically try to reboot just to be safe and clear any memory issues that the computer maybe having. OS re-install helps things ticking again in general, if a lot of issues arise or slow performance overall on my computers.

Mine was a weird situation…

I could login to the Dashboard and open a Project.

I could navigate to any tab I want to… in Design Mode.

Example: I could access the Navigator / Style Manager / Interactions… etc… everything.

The instant I went into Preview Mode… every link (not just my site - but in the Designer) died… became non-responsive.

I could’ve even exit out of Preview Mode… to go back into Design Mode.

Closing the Tab / Clearing the Cache / Killing the Chrome Task / Restarting the laptop (MBPro 2016) didn’t correct the issue.

I tried this several times.

Then - (in trying to figure out what was happening)… I went to the Style Manager and selected Clean Up.

Then I selected the Preview button - and everything worked.

I am getting the same problem, the toggle preview button is freezing when switched on and the only way to get out is to refresh the browser [ chrome Version 55.0.2883.95 (64-bit ] , its annoying becuase i may have made changes to classes / content and it doesn’t always save so its messing up my workfow . . . any suggestions ? i had a similar reason in the past with interactions and after a day chrome told me the webflow plugin had crashed , i restarted and everything reset again but this toggle preview issue is driving me nuts . . . . .

I’ve seen it happen several times yesterday
and already twice today (7am EST).

Really strange this time though…

Every time I had previous seen it

  • the issue occurred in Preview Mode… not Design Mode

This time… while another issue (non-editing element)

I was able to capture video of the issue

  • but it was happened in Design Mode… not Preview Mode
  • in fact… I could go and out of Preview Mode with no issue
  • but when I returned to Design Mode… the issues returned
  • which is the exact opposite of before
