If you change any settings in the YOOtheme Pro customizer, the live preview on the right updates, and Save and Cancel buttons appear at the top of the sidebar. These buttons give you a choice to either save and publish all theme settings or cancel them. There is also an arrow icon in the top left corner that allows you to navigate up one level in the sidebar and the Close button to exit the YOOtheme Pro customizer.
YOOtheme Pro comes with a context-sensitive help for each YOOtheme Pro setting panel. To open it, click the help icon on the right side of the panel's title.
The help window shows instructional videos for all settings of the current YOOtheme Pro panel. There are also contextual links to the documentation and an option to search the specific topic in the support center. To open the support center itself use the button in the top right corner.
The device preview buttons can be found at the bottom of the sidebar. Use the device icons to check how your site looks on different device sizes.
Note Clicking twice at the tablet or phone icon will switch between portrait and landscape mode.
Hide and open the sidebar by clicking the arrow icon to the left of the device preview buttons. This is useful if you are using a smaller screen and want to check how your site will look on the full screen.
Adjust the width of the sidebar by dragging the icon to the right. This is useful if you are writing code or a lot of text in a text area field.
