Does changing from float to flexbox affect web width ? Because it seems my web width is shrinking.
So just moments before I ask here, the float/flexbox options are still there. I tried changing from float to flexbox then save, and my web width got smaller. I want to return to float again but apparently the menu is gone. Then I ask here.
The flexbox option adjusted how the padding is added to a container.
In the old Floats the padding was added to the container width. So for example a 1200px container with 40px left and 40px right padding meant the container was 1280px.
In Flexbox this was correct so the width would remain 1200px.
So to mirror the old floats you would need to increase the Container Width to include the padding values.
