Hi,

No, we do not have such plans in the nearest time. Also the flexbox options are already working in Themler for a long time now.

Sincerely,
Hella

Hi,

This is not true.
The flexbox is working to break correctly, but because the bootstrap is not updated it causes serious problems with font-size in very large desktop monitors. I have a current client who is outraged that his 1920 x 1080 resolution has such small font.
Now I'm forced to go in and edit everywhere possible to get the project to display correctly on "ALL" monitors - not just 1440 x 900 and smaller.

When Themler uses px instead of rem, that absolutely restricts the possibility of resizing for "any" screen resolution. Using px is only good in column structures, and, only if one adjusts the px "everywhere" for the column structure - not font-size. That should NOT be necessary in 2019 - 2020.

Column structure is very common today. Therefore, font-size in px is SO outdated that is should only be used as much as you would use a Ghost Pepper - next to never.

What's worse, I've been developing since I was hand-coding in 1996. "I" knew to use rem in all of my developments through 2007, at which point it seemed necessary to switch to template software.
I was shocked to see that developers of template software were "still STUCK" using px instead of rem which was implemented in the early 2000's. Why in the world would they go backwards?!

Just because mobile devices are most popular does not mean desktops should be ignored.

I just looked at the bootstrap in a current development and the "body" font-size is set to 14px - in themler "and" bootstrap. This is why I know the bootstrap version is old since the latest bootstrap version switched to rem - not px.

This is a shame...

I have some issue on the font size. Is this dependent also with the size of the monitor? https://llcformations.com/manage-existing-business/business-license-research/ have large monitors. That's their issue.
