    Hi everyone, we're doing some initial research on this project to gain a deeper understanding about your needs & challenges around media queries/breakpoints. Would really appreciate it if you filled out this survey ( Thank you!

    Yes! Or at least provide options. We build to the Bootstrap breakpoints.

    I don't understand how this is not voted for more? Do people really not need a bigger breakpoint than 992?

    This and a few other 'basic' requirements really let the product down.

    This should be an absolute standard function. Can we please get the basics right before adding more fancy parallax scrolling type features ;-)

    @cyberdave thanks for your feedback.
    Breakpoints have been raised continuously my me and many others since Oct 2013. 
    Come on guys as DP commented below let's get the basics sorted before the fancy stuff.



    Look at the likes of CoffeeCup RWD for their implementation - surely something like this is feasible. I like Webflow, I am prepared to spend the many on it - BUT - it is very frustrating not having standard features, I can't be the only one banging my head against the wall when having to code breakpoint in separately.

    Four years of comments from the people who have bought into Webflow and nothing - it's surely about time you sat up and actually heeded what people want and need instead of concentrating on the added value bells and whistles that you charge extra for!

    Please guys....I am tired of having to use custom code to style landscape tablet view. I really would love to see this in development.

    I am working with custom breakpoints everyday. It is absolutely neccessary in my daily work and I don’t understand how people seriously can work without them. Its absolutelly needed for testing out features etc.

    I really don’t understand why we have to urge here for something thats so common in this field of work. P L E A S E  and not just wider breakpoints – CUSTOM breakpoints. It would make Webflow the perfect tool.

  • Snapper Cridge commented

    It could be a simple as dragging the resizing handle to your desired width and then adding a function to create a breakpoint at the width. Also adding that handle at the largest breakpoint would be helpful too.

    I am really interested in how people design with one breakpoint from ipad to the increasing large screens. It is 3 column stuff that fall apart for me. It needs to break on ipad landscape.

    An absolute must for professionally built products. Sure, we can add code for each breaking point we want, but it totally takes us out of the Webflow workflow. 

  • Benn Raistrick commented

    I'm finding the lack of break points really frustrating this needs bumping up. I have not used containers as they are two restricting but having just the basics 1024, 1440, 1280 1600 and onwards see straight forward.

    Is there a reason this would be difficult to implement? 

  • Joe Million commented

    It's been a while coming and I've managed to work around it, but has finally arrived banging on the door in the middle of the night.

    I suppose the challenge Webflow have is that many people won't actually be designing on screens that match the breakpoints they're designing for, which could cause some issues. I do most of my work on a 15" Laptop.

    I would really appreciate some commentary on this from the management!

  • Chris Cole commented
    September 19, 2018 19:06

    Hi folks,

    I figured out a temporary solution to this - you can create a div, name it "Container", then set a 100% width value, auto positioning, and then and a max width of, say, 1200. Then, just apply that class to all of your normal containers. It'll stretch to fit larger screens, but also respond down like normal containers. I've been doing this on all my recent sites!

    Hope it helps,

    - Chris

  • Sean Wildenfree commented

    PLEASE!!!!! Bring this to fruition. It is beyond frustrating trying to design for the desktop breakpoint, only to realize when you view it on a larger monitor/widescreen (or working the other way around), things don't line up properly! It would be VERY helpful to have a widescreen breakpoint, or the ability to just adjust & set our own breakpoints if necessary!

  • Richard Petrich commented

  • Filip Sipos commented

    Still one of the most annoying things about Webflow designer. At least ad Landscape vs portrait orientation. That alone would fix so many problems...

  • Filip Sipos commented
    February 01, 2019 01:46

    also "Breakpoint for WatchOS" and "Wider Breakpoint" should be merged into this.

  • Rich Trowbridge commented

    However, what you SHOULD do, to redefine the entire www, is allow for custom breakpoints based on DEVICE that deals with width AND height for both portrait AND landscape.

    Too many large phones have the same landscape width as tablets.
    If I want to show the desktop layout on tablets and a mobile layout on phones, I can't, and that's a serious problem for me.

    Love Webflow, but this is a big problem.

  • Martijn De Schrijver commented

    This is one of the few missing features that prevents Webflow from achieving professional grade design through the UI. Of course custom code is an option, but if we're coding the design then Webflow isn't really necessary.

    Either have ability for custom breakpoints or built into the UI for tablet landscape which is good for small laptops too. 

  • Laura Vornhusen commented

    PLEAAAAASE!!! Optimizing for 10" to 24" desktops in one breakpoint is a Pain in the ass. :(

  • Alexander Lins commented

    Custom breakpoints should have been implemented years ago. Not having this feature is definitely a reason for our team to stop using Webflow! Again, if you advertise WF towards non-coders then you need to make sure that adding custom code is limited to a minimum. Going through the tedious process of using inspect element and add custom code to WF is not acceptable.

    The desktop width should range down to 1025px and not 992px. And the tablet range should start its range from 1024px down to 768px. I would really like to hear from the Webflow staff on why they think any web developer creating a responsive web site needs a 991px breakpoint…? I would also like to hear from them what device they think needs a 991px breakpoint…? Because certainly not a "single" Apple desktop, phone, or tablet device needs a 991px breakpoint.

    A 991 breakpoint is not useful at all. The Webflow interface is confusing because you’re seeing a tablet portrait icon, but that’s not what you’re getting in the exported code. In fact, you aren’t getting an orientation in the code at all, just a 991px max-width. That’s all, just a width. So when I turn my 768 x 1024 tablet from 768 portrait mode to 1024 landscape mode the Webflow max-width: 991px breakpoint doesn’t fire or do anything, because it’s looking for a 991 width or less and is not looking for a 1024 width or less. This is why a max-width: 991px is not useful. For a 1024 device, all of the CSS inside your 991 block does not fire and is useless… unless you manually change (find and replace) all of the exported 991 breakpoints to 1024.


    Breakpoints for:
    iPad 2 (Second Generation) - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Air (5th Generation) - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Air 2 (6th Generation) - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Mini (1st Generation) - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Mini 2 - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Mini 3 - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Mini 4 - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Pro (1st Generation) 9.7-inch - 768 x 1024 px
    The iPad - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Pro 10.5-inch - 768 x 1024 px
    iPad Pro 12.9-inch - 1024 x 1366 px

    This is really frustrating that you cannot work with custom breakpoints. I have a client who needs multiple breakpoints and it's going to be a nightmare on this current setup. I agree this tackled before a lot of the other superficial stuff.
