    Default Responsive web design Where are we at?

    Responsive web design
    Is it possible that NOF themselves can give us some indication if they are working on this problem and possible time frame so we can all move forward.
    They seem to have gone missing.

    For what its worth I got this from Steve Raubenstine from NOF last week:-

    "Thank you for your message. We're working on the transformation of NOF from pixel-perfect placement to fully responsive as we speak. It'll take a little while to get it right; but we're on it."

    I replied and asked if he could give me some idea if it would be this year or when, but so far no answer!

    Steve and crew, that is great news!

    So in rewriting the program, it will be ported out to a 64 bit version, needless to say? Or by the time it's released why bother putting resources in a 32 bit non-professional program, or right now for that matter? (I'm at work and have my steel toed shoes on so the "hang-ons" can go ahead and hammer.) It won't change the fact that XP and 32 are history, ...... sorry should have said outdated.

    Moving forward, go team!

    I would say not so great news. This is not good enough.

    It still needs a reply from Steve Raubenstine with dates. We need an official response and I hope he is not going to claim he is too busy. We are all busy.

    Where is the official response?

    The fact that were not getting an official response is very worrying! It makes me think that the solution is much farther off than is going to be practical, if there is a solution at all?

    I for one, have not upgraded to 2015 as I don't want to waste my time with another revision of NOF that is not worth the trouble. I was very disappointed with the changes in 2013 compared to 2012 and from what I can see reading the comments about 2015 it should have been an update to 2013, not a new release!

    If you've ever worked in the IT industry you'd know that statements about application development and progress are not the norm. The industry is incredibly competitve and no company willingly gives intelligence to its competition.

    Steve has indicated previously (in fact, for more than a year) that responsive output is an objective and is being worked towards. Do not expect details, just accept that it's as much in the interests of NoF to be at the leading edge of web technologies (as far as is possible with a wysiwyg code generator) as it is for its customers. But it also as much in its interests to ensure that the application works smoothly, easily, effectively and efficiently with as few bugs and as little necessary kludging as possible.

    Rest assured when NoF has responsive output it will work and you won't have to jump through hoops to make it work (unlike most of the current crop of wysiwyg code generators that have some form of responsive output).

    In the meantime, if responsive is critical to your business, spend some time and money learning html and css (especially css media queries) and you'll be able to create all the responsive sites you want. It'll take you longer than using a one-app-to-do-everything kind of program but it will stand your career in much better stead going forward (assuming you intend to continue creating web sites).
