I built out a new website with the new websitebuilder because I wanted a website that was, "Responsive" meaning that the page will adjust so that it appears to fully fill the screens regardless of the screen width, however, it's not working out.  It's fine on the screen in my home, but in my office, the page is much too large.  Any suggestions?  FYI - I have not published the site but am only working in the preview mode, perhaps that the problem?  Thank you.

Hi James:

The problem could be the screen settings on your office computer is different than you home computer.

Hello James,

In that newest builder, you will see two vertical guidelines. It is recommended to keep the majority of your content within those guidelines, since that is the width that most devices will be able to see. A responsive site will fit the content as best it can with whichever screen size the website is pulled up on, but it isn't necessarily going to shrink or condense the elements if the screen is not as wide as the website was built. The screen you built the website on was most likely a wider screen. I would recommend going into the builder and editing your site to mostly fit within those two vertical guidelines.
