Hello, Changing the sn_breakpoint is working, I checked that, but you need to do this with gulp js compile/minify and change breakpoint in dist/sienav.js or if you are using not gulp package you have to change 1440 breakpoint in mdb.min.js. We don't have any option to change breakpoint for now. We will think more about that. Best, Piotr

Hi Piotr,

I have found myself on this thread as I am having the same problem. I see that this response was two years ago. Has there been an update on being able to set the breakpoint?

Yes, this option has been added. A list of available options can be found here:

Is there any particular reason the default SideNav breakpoint isn't set to the xl threshold? If we want different items in the navbar based on whether or not the sidenav is visible, it's a bit of a problem unless we ignore the 1200-1440 range.

Also - changing the SN_BREAKPOINT (at least in 4.5.12) doesn't actually work. It certainly visibilizes the sideNav properly, but it doesn't take care of the rest of the page. The sidenav appears, but the remainder of the page (in a double nav setup) doesn't shift over.

If you want change breakpoint sindenav collapse you have to do something like that:
You need to go to your mdb.js file.
And you have to change variable:

var SN_BREAKPOINT = 1440;


var SN_BREAKPOINT = 1280;

It should be works. If not let me know I will try to help you again!
