Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Breakpoint considerations, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] Before we add additional breakpoints…to our portfolio in progress, I just want to go over…some of the issues that are going to come up…when we work across different breakpoints.…I'm going to come to my breakpoint ruler…and grab the gray bar and simulate…the size of the browser width.…And we can see a few things happening when I do this.…The picture and the turquoise rectangle,…those are both resizing in width and height.…The orange rectangle is not resizing.…Furthermore, its position is moving around,…it starts off as being centered,…and then it sort of wanders over to the right.…
The text is not resizing until we reach a certain point…when the size of the text container does resize,…not the size of the text itself.…To prevent this rectangle, which, let's imagine…this is a logo, we don't want it to resize,…if we want it to stay in the same position…relative to the page, then we can pin it.…In the case of the portfolio, we are pinning the header,…including the menu, to the top of the browser,…here I'm going to pin to the center of the page.…
