I'd like to switch Bigcommerce theme from Blueprint to Stencil, but would like to tweak and test before going live. Is there any way to set it up in a sandbox so I can take some time to perfect before making the switch? I need to be as quick and painless of a transition as possible.

Hello,

When exploring new themes in Bigcommerce there should be a preview option prior to locking in a new theme.

Thanks for the response Michelle! I saw that, but I'm only seeing the option to make simple cosmetic changes. I'd like to do some bigger things, like eliminate or change the word Brand that's in the menu. Not to mention, all my images for the categories would need changed prior to going live. My current images need to be square and small, the new theme has them large and rectangular, so the preview on those is awful. I can't do this in a day, so I want some time to take new pics and try them out without affecting the current user experience. Is there any way to do that or am I stuck with Blueprint until I can reserve a large chunk of time to make all the changes at once?

No problem. I understand, unfortunately, other than the preview mode that is available it would require taking some time to implement the theme and make the said customizations.
