Hopefully the title makes sense. It seems like at some point in the last week or two, a new feature was added, that allows only one instance of designer to be open, with design control.
A typical workflow for me is to have a project open in two separate windows, for instance Project X open on one computer display, then a second instance of Project X open, in another browser window, on computer display 2. Prior to the recent change, I could have both instances open, copy from one instance to the other, without issues.
Now, when I do the same, the active window has design control, the inactive window has view control. When I switch to the opposite window/instance, I have to select ‘design here’. I then have to click on design here, and scroll back down through elements to select an element I want to copy. Then, when I go back to the other instance I have to request design control there, and scroll back through the elements to select where I want to paste.
This really slows down the workflow. Additionally, every now and then it causes the web flow project to think the pasted element(s) are being copied from a different project, so webflow renames the classes. I have to undo and repeat the process.
It is a feature that certainly helps avoid some potential problems, when you start working on a project that hasn’t been updated in the current window. But, for the informed webflow user, used to a multi-window workflow, this is nearly a deal breaker. It has severely slowed me down in the past week.
I’m hoping there is an off button for this feature.
Can anyone tell me if and how I can turn this new feature off?
