This is a great theme for us. We are a B2B supplier with a large catalogue of products which this handles well. We like the flexible home page layout and plenty of options on collection pages and product pages. With a few extra product and collection templates along with some 3rd party apps our website is the best it has ever been by some way.

1) Theme setting, can not adjust logo higher than 100px. 2) Can not display variants options as Dropdown menu. This is default feature of Debut. 3) All thumbnails display on the product page. It is not suitable for products has many picture and variants. => All minor questions are redirected to expert team. I don't know what their support team do.
