We do use style.css in Choices, use this video as a reference on how to setup a child theme:
I tried that, but when the child theme does not seem to be picking up any of the styles. It looks pretty butchered, actually.
But, attached is what I see in the Appearance > Themes > Live Preview

Thanks so much for your help.
That happens because the Menu setting is bound to the theme name, so if you change a theme the Menu will get defaulted (that means it will display all pages as menu items, that’s what you are seeing in the preview).
After you activate the child theme simply go to Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations and re-set the menu to its proper location.
That fixed the content layout, but none of the styles are picked up. Do you have to redo all of the Theme Options and Templates in a child theme?
Yes, all theme settings are saved to the theme named in the WP options table. So you’ll need to re-add in all settings for a child theme that were made in the theme options.
I know it’s a bummer but that’s how WordPress handles that.
