[Resolved] Designer tool is not saving changes

@PixelGeek Yea, I cleared cache, but just tried again and in incognito, still happening in both scenarios.

EDIT: I can click on stuff until I actually change something in the design panel. Once I make a change the blue outline on any object disappears and the change doesn’t save.

can you please post your read-only link?

@PixelGeek Here you go:

I made a copy of your project onto my account and made changes:

the bug didn’t happen. Can you try duplicating your site and trying again?

@PixelGeek yea, I cloned the site and tried again. Here is a recording:

Weirdly this only seems to be happening when editing gradients so far. I’m able to change the text like you did in your example, and it seems fine. However, when I change any gradient the issue pops back up and the changes don’t save. If I then change a different object (not gradient) it seems to work again without refreshing.

I haven’t tested anything else yet, but seems consistent with gradient backgrounds.

Hi @sam-g

We’ve been doing some testing on this end, but still aren’t able to get a repro on this behavior, which makes it a difficult to troubleshoot. If you are still seeing this behavior on your end, can you send me a screen recording of what you see (CloudApp or Quicktime work well)?

​Thanks in advance!

@Brando Here is a screen recording, showing an update to the H1 followed by trying to change the background gradient, which is what seems to be triggering the issue:


You can see the selection boxes disappearing after I make the change to the background. And when I reload the designer the text change is still there, but the gradient has reverted back to black.

@Brando @PixelGeek Any update here? I just checked this again this morning and it’s still occurring for me.

Hi @sam-g,

Thanks for contacting us about this, as this definitely sounds like odd behavior.

I tried reproducing this behavior on our end, and I was able to note the same issue.

We’ve gone ahead and let our engineers know about this issue. Though I do not have a timeline on when a fix will be available, I’ll definitely let you know as soon as possible.

:webflow_heart: Thanks in advance for your patience :bowing_man:


Thanks for the update @mistercreate

@mistercreate I’m not trying to be a pain in the butt, however, I’m wondering if there is an ETA for this fix? I’m jumping back into this project for a client this morning and realizing that I can’t really deliver them anything for review until I have this fixed. I could use an HTML embed or something for the time being, but I’m going to have to go back and redo that work again later.

We completely understand, @sam-g.

I wish I could provide a timeline for the possible fix, however we currently do not have one.

Though it is a temporary workaround, using an HTML embed at this time would be best.

I tried a few workarounds myself (changing class names, removing combo classes, etc), but HTML Embed seemed to be the best option.

@mistercreate Hi, just checking in on this issue, any updates from Webflow?

I’m also having this issue. When I edit a linear gradient background, the change isn’t saved.

Furthermore, when I then try and navigate to a different page, the loading graphic appears but I am returned to the old page and can’t click on anything. The whole designer stops working.

This also happens when I try and create a new linear gradient background. It only saves the first stop I edit, and then the above issue occurs when I try and go to a different page.

Any updates on this?

I’m dealing with all of the same bugs as you too, including inability to save work. Sucks because I wanted to start a 100 day UI challenge tonight but I guess not in WebFlow yet! kodi
