Technical issues

Experimental mode can't load

There is a load of things that can affect experimental mode, but we found that deleting file .uxpin-merge in your design system repository fixes it in most cases.

Merge wants to reload the page in experimental mode all the time

We recommend adding the flag --disable-tunneling in the command starting Merge. It requires to run Merge in Google Chrome.
You can find examples of adding --disable-tunneling in our repositories.
