Can the users of Adobe Muse continue to use the software and also download it again? Yes, the licensed users of Adobe Muse can continue to use the software. No, the Adobe Muse application will continue to open on your computer. You will be able to continue to edit existing or create new websites with the application. However, it is quite possible that web standards and browsers will continue to change after Adobe stops support for the application.
After March 26, Adobe will no longer deliver compatibility updates with the Mac and Windows OS, or fix any bugs that might crop up when publishing Adobe Muse sites to the web.
What kind of help and support resources can I rely on going forward? The Adobe Muse Microsite will continue to be available to users until support ends on March 26, Although no new content will be added to the Events, Tutorials, or Site of the Day pages, the Adobe Muse Widget Directory will continue to be updated with current widget availability during this timeframe.
What happens to my existing Adobe Muse-built website? Will the site disappear? Websites built with Adobe Muse will continue to be live on the internet if the sites are hosted on any third-party hosting platform such as GoDaddy or Bluehost for example. Sites hosted on Business Catalyst will have to be republished to another hosting platform to remain live after March 26, , when Business Catalyst hosting is no longer available.
For more details, see the Business Catalyst announcement page. Will my widgets continue to work after Adobe stops support for Adobe Muse? This will be up to the individual widget provider. If you are paying for an annual subscription plan with them you should touch base to see what their official support plans are going forward. Will widgets that I purchased from one of your widget partners work with Behance Portfolio, or Adobe Dreamweaver? Unfortunately, no.
All widgets developed for use with Adobe Muse are only compatible with Adobe Muse. More like this. I have noted that when changing the browser width, some items placed in the dead-centre go awry. My solution is to pin it to the centre, as seen here. Again, testing is your friend. Variables per breakpoint With all of Muse's responsive tools, the heavy hammer is of course the breakpoint controls.
Each new breakpoint allows the designer to start with a fresh canvas, at least if needed. Granted, this is not the way you want to work. Ideally, you would flow as smoothly as possible from one browser width to another. In fact, ideally you would rely mostly on the responsive controls listed above, and only use breakpoints as a last-ditch solution, when other solutions won't work.
Theoretically you could create a responsive site with only one full-width breakpoint and have all the elements scale automatically. Granted, this would probably necessitate it being a rather simplistic site. In any case, you probably want to try and have as few breakpoints in a project as you can. But as a fail-safe, breakpoints can be used gently, or with brute force. Gentle use involves waiting until page elements begin to break, then creating a new breakpoint width where you fix that element.
Brute force techniques involve completely removing a page object that exists in one breakpoint zone you can right-click to 'Hide in Breakpoint' or 'Hide in other Breakpoints' , and replacing it with a new item in another zone.
Or perhaps just removing an item altogether as the browser width narrows. For more granular tips and insights, visit this page on Adobe's site. Page testing tips Now let's take a look at some ways you can test your page to check your responsive designs are working as you intended.
Let's start with a tiny one. Of course, this is in the layout window so you will not see a real preview of many functions. By placing an identifier on the page of each breakpoint zone, you can identify which zone you need to make changes to.
I simply make a text box for each zone with the pixel width value of that zone. Make sure each identifying text is only visible in its proper breakpoint. And also make sure to turn them all off before you publish. An easy setup would be to create a new layer for all labels.
Then you can simply turn them all off with one button. One other thing to note: As can be seen in the image above, I have added a breakpoint tag to each zone. Now I can easily see which zones have issues I need to address. In this example we can see that the narrower version of '' needs some tweaking. Breakpoint zone identifying tags save time Template from Muse-Themes. If not then we might want to consider adding another breakpoint to deal with it independently.
How can or should user innovations of general interest be transferred to producers for large-scale diffusion. We propose that there are three general methods for accomplishing this. First, producers can actively seek innovations developed by lead users that can form the basis for a profitable commercial product. Second, producers can draw innovating users into joint design interactions by providing them with "toolkits for user innovation.
" Third, users can become producers in order to widely diffuse their innovations.
