What are Media Queries?

Media queries allow you to change the styling of your design based on rules such as screen width.

An example of that would be to change your design from being arranged horizontally to stacking vertically on the <428px Media Query - this means this setting is only applied when the screen width is less than 428px

By using Media Queries, you can control your design for various devices such as desktops, tablets, mobile and more.

Editing in different Media Queries

Working with media queries in Locofy is easy:

  1. Click on the desired Media Query tab or select from the dropdown
  1. Edit the styling of the layer in the styling sections below. All the changes made will apply to the selected media query.
