Landscape Tablet View

Often some graphics, font sizes, etc. don't translate just right from the desktop design to an iPad turned to landscape mode. It would help to have a landscape view in styling to just tweak small things that go wrong.

    Completely stuck due to this issue. For example, my interactions in Desktop view have nothing to do with the insteractions in Landscape table view. Is this wish from Jan 2017???

    Has there been any progress on this wish?

    Im quite surprised that this has not been resolved as of yet?

    @Webflow whats the latest on this?

    Dear Webflow Dev Team,

    We have had to add considerable custom code to achieve how we want sites to appear on landscape tablets.

    It was time consuming and tedious. If you could add landscape tablet previews that would be a huge help.

    Thank you in advance.

    This is a requirement and has been from the start, what's the update Webflow?

    I need it. Please.

    I would have NEVER used webflow if I knew about this unsolved problem. Now I'm stuck because I got to far into the project to switch. Two and a half year without a fix is totally unacceptable.

    This needs adding more desperately than ever. I lose so much time compromising my desktop design just to try and make it work on iPad landscape. Especially menus. I would love to have the hamburger menu available on iPad landscape.

    Landscape or portrait, I still have no choice but to target my design to resize and work for 768 and 1024. And Webflow’s max-width: 991px hard code is just creating more work for me. Having 991px as a breakpoint is worthless in responsive design. Show me a device that even needs 991px as a breakpoint.

    Wouldn’t it be oh-so-helpful if Webflow could offer some sort of breakpoint override, perhaps in Project Settings?

    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

    How is this not a feature yet??  Seriously guys this is a complete deal breaker...

    Recently started using webflow for a project, and got quite a bit into the design/build before realising this crucial media query isn't available - what a deal breaker for me! If I wasn't committed already to do my current project in webflow (because of the project delivery time), I would take the hit and stop right now and code the site myself. I can't believe this isn't included! And yes, as others mention the preview mode is not accurate at all. I'm having to publish site to debug in various resolutions.

    Also animations behave different; they often appear much later than in any other view. Often the element does not show up even after scrolling past it!

    I agree - tablet in landscape mode looks very different - I had to find out myself during tests on the device.

    Very painful and should be avoided by providing us a preview in the designer.

    Why is this taking so long?

    Has a landscape breakpoint been added yet?
    We find Webflow enticing, but we discontinued our subscription a year or two ago over this feature.

    At the time I was told by dev it was on the list, so I come back from time to time to check in.

     

    It's not a dev issue for us — tweaking landscape view in later stages is something we can hand off to our front end designers or dev team.

    It's a conceptual design issue — without landscape tablet view  (and other conceptual design features) Webflow is a no-go.

    It's a Catch-22 for the tool:

    If we don't have friction-free conceptual design features, we do core communications and conceptual design with other tools. And if we do core design with other tools, we no longer need Webflow — we just give our files to the executional designers or dev guys, who can code in their sleep faster than they can build a site with Webflow.

    To be compelling for senior communications designers, Webflow needs to provide the tools to do friction-free early phase design and get to a basic working site for client presentation without code-adds or other technical fiddling. Once that's done, a bit of technical fiddling (or more likely handoff to the dev guys) for tweaking or more complex feature-adds is tolerable.

    To that end, really basic requirements, like convenient landscape landscape tablet view out of the box, are a must. (80%+ tablet users hold their tablets in landscape view by default).

    A lot of future opportunities in web development are at the conceptual design phase, and its seamless, friction-free integration into the executional design and technical phases.

    Hope to see this and other design features soon.

    PLEASE - This is a must-have update!

    Also, is it possible to detect what kind of device a site is being viewed on? 
    Some of the new large-screen phones have landscape widths that are approaching tablets, but the aspect ratio is very different between the two. That can really affect how a site looks.

    Maybe you could let us add additional breakpoints within your pre-defined device icons?

    Either way, adding a landscape tablet breakpoint that is different from the desktop is really a must.

    This is a must. Not only for the comments mentioned above, but interactions. Currently have Hover triggers on desktop which do not function correctly on Landscape Tablet.

    I agree. I have a little caption under than image that says "click to enlarge image" on the desktop breakpoint and "tap to enlarge image" on the mobile breakpoints" Unfortunately, an iPad (9.7") in landscape says "click" because Webflow see's it's screen width as that of a desktop. I know you guys do good work. I hope a solution to this issue is in progress.

    Tablet landscape view is a requirement. The entire purpose of creating Desktop, Mobile - Landscape and Mobile - Portrait support is so that we can design for devices other than simply desktop. It's a tremendous oversight to leave out Table landscape from this break points. An alternative would be to let the Webflow users easily define the break points themselves.

    I have just started using Webflow, love it as I love this visual control I have in the design! However, this is one thing that is seriously killing the vibe of my current project. In the beginning, it was not an issue, but now, it's just hurting my face to think of other options just for this one view that I can't even see and have control over.
