Comment (by jipmoors):

 More food for thought on the controls.
 As I mentioned the controls for the desktop/tablet/mobile-preview were
 feeling out of place in my concept.

 I understand and agree with anybody noting that reducing more screen-
 estate is a bad idea, this concept is to show that having the controls of
 the preview closer to the element that will actually change reduces the
 cognitive load a user needs to be able to use it.

 Whenever the bottom bar would remain visible after clicking the "hide
 controls", keeping the "save" button while previewing could also reduce
 the amount of clicks/work a user has to do after changing settings and
 verifying that it looks as expected.
