Defining a "custom" responsive view

I thought I'd put this here, although the ability to use a custom responsive view (Artisteer 4.2 header far right menu item) doesn't seem to be very useful. More on that below.

To define your own custom responsive view you're actually defining the width at which it triggers "responsive behavior" (if I understand it correctly).

In the designer, on the Layout Tab:

On 3rd section from the left (Sheet Layout), click the bottom right corner's small arrow to get the entire "Sheet Options" dialog or panel.

On the first item, "sheet layout", at the bottom, are two items for "Responsive Resolution" (which is poorly worded. Should say "Responsive Screen Resolution, imo)

You need to select "Switch Resolution", and switch from "Auto" to "Custom Size". This will let you set the custom size.

However I don't think it works very well. My design is responsive with a 75% width, minimum of 600px and maximum width of 920px. When I try and set the custom size, it won't let me go below 768 px for a width.

I welcome any clarifications or ways to make use of this.

Where did you even get version 4.2? it is not available here.

I have the latest version and it does not show that area about responsive resolution below the Radius section....

If you go to the "News" section of the website, you will see the announcement for the 4.2 download. If you install into the same folder as your existing installation, it will delete it first, however. So, at least keep the last release download install file, in case you want to revert.

Running a newer version will "upgrade" any project files, so be sure to save them with a different name, etc.

I am looking to have a lower Custom size than 768px, I think that 767px would do the trick for me, have you resolved the matter.

i haven't tried to resolve. i just wanted stephen to know that he wasn't alone!

that being said i usually resolve responsive issues by directly targeting and changing the css. drop a screenshot here and link to site if you'd like me to look.

i've been working a week on pixel perfect woocommerce buttons - shocking!

Mikkel, please make sure that Responsive Web Design option is enabled before you export from Artisteer - please navigate File -> Export -> Options -> General -> Responsive Web Design -> select Yes.
If the issue is still present, please contact us directly via

Can anyone point me to a responsive (Wordpress) site that has been built using the latest version of Artisteer? I am thinking about upgrading from V3, but am reluctant to do so until I see some live results.

It needs to scale as well as, say Arvada Theme or Canvas, or even Genesis. A site that also has wooCommerce installed would be ideal.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
