How to Open the Developer Console in Your Browser

An array of different things may lead to Watermarkly not working properly, and figuring out which one is the source of the issue in your case can be challenging. The variety of browsers and a ton of available plugins make this task even more difficult. The developer console in your browser can be of great help to us to determine what exactly is causing the problem, so we can then fix it. It logs all the information about the backend operations of our app. This information is a real lifesaver when it comes to troubleshooting.
