Do you mean by using Inspect element? I have tried to use and see which file I need to adjust, but as soon as I make adjustments and reupload using FTP, nothing changes. Unless I need to change setting in every single file that stylesheet lists..
Apologies for the late reply, and for the lack of information in my earlier post (I was rushing to leave the house).
My statement was basically a copy/rephrasing of a statement I had read somewhere, but is not a correct representation of what I do.
The style editor does not in fact allow you to edit the originating base files (that wouldn't be logical anyway) but it does show you how and where effect is created and it allows editing the end-result (meaning in your browser cache).
In this sense it shows you which file(s) to edit.
What I do it to use the style editor to test a change + identify which file should be edited and where. I have the files open in edit mode while I test changes and immediately apply the edits and save (if I'm pleased with the result).
Reupload these changed files or refreshing the browser page) will probably only have effect after purging the cache .
