Hi,

I just discovered LiveStyle and find it amazing.
However it seems I can't use it with my project. I'm working with HTML and CSS files all stored locally on my hard drive, and when I open my HTML file in Chrome (see the local address in the address bar), it's the only tab that I can't use the Chrome LiveStyle extension with. See the screenshot.

Address of my file in the Chrome address bar is :
file:///users/Baptiste/Documents/Skeleton-2.0.4/PPP/PPP%20skeleton.html
so it's a local file

and here is the screenshot for a "normal" web page, where LiveStyle works perfectly well

Yes, there’s a random issue with latest Chrome: for some reason in looses connection with file:// page which, in turn, looks like a common scenario when extension is updated. It will be fixed in next release (but no ETA yet)

Ok thank you for your quick answer.
What is the workaround? Should I set up a local host? Would that make it work?

Yes, creating a local web-server (e.g. using http:// scheme) should work
