New Style Panel Feedback

@Lindapham thanks a lot, does it means position (absolute, relative, fixed) come back as buttons as well ? I know you guys see grid and flexbox as the future but old positioning still solve many layout issues, 2 click for the basic feature is already too much…

*opens Webflow project and quickly changes the display state of a modal to fix a spelling mistake. Closes site and walks into another room…

“Wait a second…”

*Runs back in, opens Webflow to actually notice the new, beautiful row of buttons, and calls a friend to announce Webflow is great at listening to user feedback.

Haha seriously. You all are awesome! I didn’t even notice at first. The best design really is 99% invisible. :heart_eyes:



Minor thing: I’ve noticed that when you hover or even click on the question mark “more info” circles (?) nothing happens. These right hrrrrr:

I do not know who is responsible for the redesign of the new panel. But this person clearly lacks an understanding of the goal.

  1. The new panel is very complicated.
  2. New panel is not built on user experience.

Tens of thousands of people are used to using the old panel as an effective tool for everyday work.

Today, you propose to spend time exploring a new panel, is it too high a price to
optimize the speed that many users do not need in the first place.


Create a vote and understand everything yourself.
You are a big and ambitious company, but your marketing department is still a weak point.

PROBLEM ZOOM percentage:
When Google is zoomed out: to see more of the content: because beamers has a 4:3 screen. Than there is a problem for the popup tools!

I suggest a ctrl+shift zoom +/- so the way GoogleDocs works:
look to the wishlist: please vote for a menu-zoom and also a scroll to the right side!

problem in naming: students need to know the code ‘uppercase’
so please make it the same into to webflow!

Thanks a lot webflow team


Not sure if anyone has this issue, but the bottom part of the menu popovers are cut off. I can’t access anything when this happens.


hi @alexanderwong. We open the popover above or below the list item based on available space. The only time we have been able to reproduce this is when we open the popover and then manually resize the height of the browser so that it’s shorter than what it was was when we first opened the popover.

Can you either 1) resize the browser height to see if it fixes your problem 2) or close the popover and reopen it? At reopen, the style panel will be able to take into account the new height of the browser and open the popover above the list item rather than below.

Please let me know if you were able to reproduce this behavior any other way.


Hi @Lindapham, I tried your recommendations:

  1. I resized the browser a few times.
  2. Then proceeded to toggle the popovers.
  3. No luck, same thing. Happens to border popover as well. I can’t pick the color cuz it’s hidden off viewport.

Weird thing is, this doesn’t happen when I’m in Incognito mode. But I don’t have any extensions running that would cause this issue. The old style panel doesn’t have such issue though.

Hi @alexanderwong that’s really odd. Would you mind sending me a video of you trying to resize the browser and retoggling the popover? It’s been very difficult for us to reproduce this on our side.

+1 on the popover issue. i just came to post about not being able to access my entire color palette because of the same issue.


I’d like know why the “visibility control” on various devices was removed, I thought this was really useful, and much easier than “display none” setting. Was there a particular reason for this? Or will it be brought back at a later date? Hope so! Thanks.!

  1. Bring back center element.
  2. It would be nice if the size adjustments came up when clicking on the entire padding/margin arrow rather than having to click the number precisely.
  3. The position buttons… keep as buttons not as dropdown.
  4. Make the dropdown arrow to change states as big as the display buttons. It’s so tiny.
  5. Please add a button to disable pointer events when published!

Also, in the top bar of the editor (probably next to the toggle preview button) add a button to quickly edit the current page’s custom code. The same one that is located under edit page settings and scrolling down. Make that easier to access and fullpage!

Maybe another button to quick edit the entire site’s custom code too. It is annoying to always have to navigate around and work in the small textareas when having to enter custom code.

Agree. I also think the new style panel looks cool but compared to the old/current it hard to find things… but maybe I am just the only one.

My two cents, I prefer the old style unless I am missing something, I will hunt for the video on using the new panel. From what I have read would like to see the old panel stay for a few more months until some of the missing items (center) can be added. Also, perhaps there is a way not to need a 2 step process when the original style panel only needed one. That’s the reason I use the old one, faster. Thanks for reading!


Who thought that was a good idea?

Lots of things I like about the redesign, I got accustomed to most things that are new pretty quickly and can see they’ll allow ability for the style panel to grow. Imagining a bright future of native vector design inside Webflow and all that other good stuff is going to need space in the UI.

Persistent issue I’ve found though is something other people have noted about the colour palettes getting cut off. I’ve been switching to the old style panel every now and then to avoid it happening.

Has Webflow resolved the issue where the bottom part of the color swatch panel is inaccessible if it overflows below the browser viewport? This happens often with anything near the bottom of the styles panel, and the only way I’m able to edit those styles unless I switch back to the old style panel. I work with a team of 4 other designers and we’re quire displeased with the switch over to the new panel. It’s not as intuitive and Webflow as a whole has been very buggy since the introduction of the beta version. The one and only feature I think it better than the previous is the sticky positioning option. Other than that, I must respectfully give a big thumbs down to this switch to the new design panel. At least until all the bugs are fixed. (Also, bringing the center/auto-margin button back would be awesome!) Thanks for reading.
