Problem with Format CSS in WeBuilder 2016

Postby mjucker » Sat Nov 19, 2016 2:03 pm

I have two @import- statements for webfonts at the top of my css-file, which I need to disable when working locally.
(It takes ages for WeBuilder to import this external information - the browsers have no problems with this)

"Format CSS-Code…" removes these 2 commented lines, even if "Remove comments" isn't enabled.
Later comments are handled correctly.

(WeBuilder 14.2.0.186)

Thanks for the info.

From the info you provided I can't tell if this is the correct problem, but if you use //..url.. (starting with double slash) and use Internet Explorer for preview (instead of Chrome), and you use files for preview instead of local webserver - Internet Explorer is dumb enough to try to resolve //url to a network drive that doesn't exist and this is what takes ages. So to fix it eliminate the circumstances - either use Chrome instead of IE for preview or get rid of // or use local webserver and configure mappings (menu Tools -> Options -> Preferences -> Preview -> Mappings) to map the file you're previewing to local webserver address.

Nonetheless, I'll file the CSS formatter bug for fixing, thank you for reporting.

We are planning to change CSS formater completely (replace it with one of the open-source solutions) because the current one is very difficult to debug & fix. Unfortunately we can't do it during the minor updates because it's too big of a change, so the plan is to do it for the next major version.
