Hi Ricky, please post your complete HTML and CSS so we can help! We need to be able to see the element your selecting and your markup to look for errors.

When using workspaces, there are two thing to remember whenever you make a change:

  1. Be sure to save your changes, using the menu or the control-s shortcut
  2. Always refresh your browser after the save to update the preview.

I'd guess you missed one of those.

Thanks for replying. I totally forgot to save the changes. When I saved them it did the trick. Thanks!
