    It only allowed me to pick 1 not 2

    I've noticed several interface glitches on the latest Safari - some quite severe - and freezes, which often force us to switch to Firefox. Focusing on greater Safari compatibility would be greatly appreciated.

    The biggest weakness of Duda compared to more modern design tools is no outline of the page elements. Figma, Webflow, and most other tools use something like this to allow you to select page elements:

    Also, if I am editing an element, e.g. a column, and I want to edit a different element, then I have to x out of the editor pop-up and then select the element I want to edit. It would be easier to just select a new element and the editor pop-up closes automatically. I have to do twice as many clicks as I really need to.

    Have you used your own editor before?

    I noticed that if you went to an older page (one where perhaps you changed the page URL and forgot) and then land on a 404 page, the editor's side bar tools get a bit clunky.
    It's as if it has a hard time recognizing where it is, (which kinda makes sense since I'm assuming a 404 is a global thing).
    I usually have to refresh the page and then the tools work as normal. (Google Chrome Browser)
