This is why you should use Preview Files for your CSS preview. TopStyle will apply your CSS to the HTML being preview'ed without the need to constantly save the CSS again and again.

Adding those different HTML pages to the Preview Files and then switching between them while you're editing your CSS doc (without the need to activate another document tab) really is the way to go. It prevents you from saving your CSS doc again and again.

Adding the preview files for each project is work even though it can be partially automated, selecting preview files is work, selecting tabs is a single mouse click.

My threshold for defining 'work' is admittedly low :)

If I'm working on a few different things at once, I don't want to have to read the list and determine which index.html to use.

Hi-

I still cannot get sync to work

I am using chrome as the browser, i change something in the html editor, go to a different line and the preview doesn't jump anywhere. Nothing happens?

Sync preview with editor is enabled.

If i click SAVE, the preview refreshes, but doesn't jump to where im editing?

V5.0.0.92

Bump. Is anyone else seeing this issue?

For me the HTML preview randomly steals the cursor on update, making the program unusable and frustrating, unless I turn off auto-update which is... less than idea for a "Realtime" CSS editor.

Having to resort to Firebug for live CSS editing until and update comes out unless anyone has a magic workaround?

@JoeB: I'm not seeing this problem. Can you please send me the HTML doc you're seeing this with, plus an export of your settings? (Options > Export Settings).

Thanks!
