How to restrict block height and avoid constant block resizing?

Ask a Question

Maybe this is a duplicate of some other question, but for me, it is becoming quite an issue.
When I’m jumping between devices(different screen sizes) and adding and removing stuff, the block (which I'm editing) on other devices(screen sizes) is often (CONSTANTLY!) getting enlarged, so I need to constantly adjust the height of the block and constantly check if the size is right on all screen sizes. Is there maybe a way to lock block height or somehow avoid that constant block resizing? I understand it is on purpose because sometimes elements are bigger than block height etc. but it is really annoying. I would be much happier if the block would stay the same and adjust elements if they stick out. Any hint much appreciated.

The standard that's recommended is to work from desktop/left to right/mobile.
When a device is changed, it's NOT supposed to change anything left of the one you're on.
It doesn't always happen that way unfortunately, and sometimes you need to press the Reset on the block and make the adjustments again.
If there was a way to save and lock a page before moving on I think it would be helpful, and this was discussed in the past.

Thanks, actually it is happening constantly, at least in my case. Makes me nervous, because I need to "repair" height all the time...
For example, just moving or resizing an image on one screen size is moving that image on many screens (sometimes in a totally unexpected position), then block height is changed on various screen sizes, so after simple edit, I need to do many edits on various screen sizes. Wouldn't be more simple if elements/blocks could be locked in position and size?

Not just blocks.
It would be helpful if there was a switch to lock the entire page.

Exactly, when I edit a page on one screen size, please leave my page on other screen sizes as it is. If I add an element on one screen size, add it on other screen sizes (just put it somewhere), but please leave everything else as it is. If I change the size/position of one element on one screen size, please leave it on other screen sizes as it is. And PLEASE DON'T CHANGE HEIGHT OF BLOCKS on the screen sizes, which I'm not currently editing. I will change the height of the block if/when I want. I'm willing to click the button LOCK/UNLOCK on any element, block, page... Make it grayed out or not, make all properties grayed out, but before I want to change something, PLEASE DON'T DO IT FOR ME.

@rafafah795 Just the opposite... In another builder, there is no editing at all, just configuration. Editing of layer-based, free-positioned elements on the webpage is a hell of a job, that's where Nicepage shines. I'm just pointing out the problems because every software can be better, right?

If you say so... for dropping pre-made templates on a page this is probably not needed, so be in peace...

This kind of thing is happening a lot less than it used to, but there are still occasions when things are getting messed up. I check every size automatically now and adjust the bottom margins to how I want them and save every size then re-check to make sure the previous size is still as it should be. I'm finding that 95% of the time, things are no longer getting messed up as they used to. But I agree, a page lock for specific sizes might be a good idea.

Yes. I think it would make a lot of sense and save a lot of work if it was an option to lock width and height. Then I dont have to go in and clean up the mess and "Reset changes for this block".
