Problem with media query

The first curly brace after the media query is highlighted in red, which from what I understand means that it's not closed. Except that it is. I don't know what's causing this, as it only happens with media queries and not with any other curly brace anywhere on the code. min-width is also highlighted in red and the media query doesn't work on the live preview.

@media (min-width: 769px) {

    .wrap {
        min-height: calc(100vh - 89px);

    .container {
        width: 80%;
        max-width: 1150px;
        margin: 0 auto;


EDIT: The code works just fine if I download the files and open index.html. Maybe it's a worspace bug?

Looks like a bug. It's definitely misleading, but the code provided is perfect.

I've alerted the TH team. Thanks for posting!

I think the editor just....does that.

My editors have always done this as well. I think it is a problem with the parser which is looking for characters like "{" and "}"

I went ahead and used your css on a jsfiddle to see if it was flawed and it worked. Just in-case it was a height issue, I went ahead and added a background color....
