Read this article to get started with responsive design in Adobe Muse. Learn how to create responsive sites for any device.

While you create a responsive site, it may not be helpful to add breakpoints based on a specific device, OS, or a product brand. Defining breakpoints based on these factors can prove to be high maintenance. Instead, the layout and the content of your website should determine how and where you add breakpoints.

Read on to know the recommended design approach to create a responsive site using Adobe Muse.

Create a site. Choose Fluid width from the New Site dialog box.

To avoid white space and other design issues, set your page dimensions. Click Advance Settings to set the Min, Max page width, and the Min height for your site.


In the New Site dialog box, select Fluid Width.

Wherever your design breaks, add a breakpoint. For example, in the previous image, notice the text box going out of width when you drag the scrubber. Add a breakpoint at that width where the design breaks.

Continue to preview your site until the minimum width. Add breakpoints and tweak your layout wherever required.
