3 columns fixed, rounded corners

You set the "3 columns fixed, rounded corners", and then 'customize the css'.
You decide to enlarge the page structure from 900px to 960px.
Result? Looks a mess.

Am I missing somthing here? Is the software working?

... and is it related to the fact it takes an age to install all the extensions?

It looks like this is a bug with all the rounder corner layouts. After applying the Sculptor page if you change the width some modifications will have to be made to the CSS.

The changes that will have to be made are in the screen.css file. You will have to add the bolded parts in these sections:
#outerWrapper #headerBackground #headerBottom {
background-image: url("../2ColumnFixedRoundedCornerLeftSidebarHeaderandFooter_CaboSunset_images/header_bottom.gif");
background-position: left bottom;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
height: 156px;
}

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
margin: 0 0 0 246px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 14px 14px 14px 14px; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
width: 600px;
}

#outerWrapper #footerBackground #footerBottom {
background-image: url("../2ColumnFixedRoundedCornerLeftSidebarHeaderandFooter_CaboSunset_images/footer_bottom.gif");
background-position: left bottom;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}


And no, this issue is not related to how long the extension takes to install.

Thanks Jimmy,
But the dimensions of the images cannot be changed during the process? They are predetermined to fit a page of 900px?

The built in rounded corner layouts are not super flexible since they use images to round the corners. It uses images so that the layouts are 100% compatible with Internet Explorer. So, adjusting the width like you said will not have the desired effect until the images are also updated to be wider.

I made some custom CSS Sculptor presets that use CSS3 to round the corners and doesn't rely on images at all. The upside is the designs are very flexible and updating the width will adjust itself correctly. The downside is Internet Explorer won't round the corners at all and will just use square boxes instead. These designs are unsupported by WebAssist, but are still cool to check out. css-sculptor-css-rounded-corner-presets/
