Flexbox object appearance in design window

Post by dj7wilson » Thu Nov 23, 2017 2:16 pm

I love the new flexbox extension! But they hardly seem to be WYSWYG. When I set the flex shrink or grow to 1 or more, objects in the flexbox shrink to a few pixels. They publish beautifully, but are a pain to work with in the design window. Am I doing something wrong?

At the time the flex container was implemented for the software, not all browsers supported this functionality so it was not always clear what the correct behavior should be.
Do you have an example project for what is current not working so I can try to improve this in a future update?

This issue fixed nicely, however, now whenever I reopen a page any image that I have selected a transparent color for using the image tools loses its transparency

The transparency has nothing to do with flexbox.
Maybe you have also change other settings?
For example, if you apply filters or other image effects then this may affect the transparency of the image.

As you might recall, images were turning into dots when placed in a flexbox and 'Can shrink' was set to 1. You fixed that but the fix caused the transparency to be removed. I can still set the transparency and upload it, but I have to reset the transparency every time I open the page in design view. I have made no changes whatever, the problem occurred simultaneously with the release of 12.3.0. and is occurring in all of my projects.

I'm sorry but I do not think flexbox has any affect on the transparency, flexbox does no change the image data. It only affects the layout.
I think something else is causing this.

If you need further assistance then please share the project/images and describe the exact steps to see the issue with transparency so I can try to help you.
