Issue with mix-blend-mode

I’m having an issue using mix-blend-mode on the new Pro. It shows on the frontend, but in the Pro builder it will only display if you hover over the section. Even after saving, closing out and reopening. Makes it difficult to build content when the background keeps changing.

I’m on Pro 4.0.11. The only plugins installed at the moment are ones bundled with the theme. This is a brand new install for a new site.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I’m using the CSS property (not the drop down in effects) on a section element to create the effect for the background of that element. I’ve switched to using the background-blend-mode instead which is working.

Hey Marcus,

It’s good to know that it is working now. Please don’t hesitate to open another thread if you need anything else we can help you with.



The mix-blend-mode still doesn’t work using CSS. I tried on four different Pro v4 sites, including one staging where I only installed Pro v4 with no other plugins.

I’m using background-blend-mode as a workaround. This works for my purposes right now (I only need to do a background image and color), but if I need to blend multiple layers and want to use the CSS, instead GUI Effects dropdown, I will still have the same problem.

Best, Marcus
