🛠️ This Week's Fixes

 

Fix

  
  • Design Editor: An element used to jump out of the frame when grouping and ungrouping it in Auto layout; this has been fixed.
  • Design Editor: Some users reported that the animation name did not appear when linked to a page; this has been fixed.
  • Design Editor: Some users reported that a padding gap floats out of place in an Auto Layout frame when zooming in or out; this has been fixed.

  • Design Editor: The height between the form for Card Slider and the Style Panel had to be identical for iOS / iPhone to render properly; this has been fixed.

Update

  

Figma Import.png

What if you could turn static Figma designs files (.fig) into fully-functional, interactive websites without coding anything? Rather than having to rebuild your Figma design from scratch, you can now just import it into Vev in a few easy steps. 🤫

 

Fix

  
  • Design Editor: Some users reported not having the refresh button on canvas; this has been fixed.

  • Design Editor: Burger menu - Link to element - Scrolling takes too long to reach bottom

  • Design Editor: You can now copy/paste content without having to create a section first.

  • Design Editor: The link add-on now scrolls smoothly regardless of how far down the element is.

  • Design Editor: We've fixed the issue where changing the opacity on the Fill layer of a section would reset its fill color to black.

  • Content Editor: Some users reported not being able to modify links, animations, or add-on settings on shapes; this has been fixed.

  • Publishing: Previously, page slugs could contain spaces, which would make the expected URL show up with a 404; this has been fixed and any spaces contained in the slug will be stripped away automatically.

  • Publishing: Adding capital letters into the URL paths will cause pathing issues on preview; this has been fixed.

  • Sharing: Some users reported that sensitive data can potentially be exposed if Vev is used in a system where a token or similar is present in the URL; this has been fixed.

  • Template: Custom tags can now be saved both by pressing “enter” and clicking on the tag’s name.

Side Panel Settings .png

We’ve just updated the UI and UX of the side panel settings for an even smoother project and page management experience.

Plus, we’ve added an eyedropper tool so that you can quickly select and sample colors from any object or image on your canvas without relying on third-party tools.

This has been a much-requested feature by our community, so we are especially happy to finally deliver it. 🥳

Update

  

"Site Plans" Are Becoming "Project Plans

From April 25th 2022, we will be renaming "site plans" to "project plans". In addition, you will be able to publish a project to multiple publishing destinations with a single project plan ($5/month).

So, What's Changed?

Previously, you needed to purchase a site plan for each publishing destination and export option. So, if your project was published on three different destinations, you'd pay $15/month (=$5*3) to remove Vev watermarks.

What will happen to my existing site plans?

Nothing — unless you have projects associated with multiple site plans. In this case, your next invoice will be adjusted accordingly. For example, if your project was published to three publishing destinations, your next monthly incurring cost would be $5, instead of $15.

Read more on how to add, remove, and tranfer your project plans here.

 

Fix

  
  • Design Editor: Empty comments would be submitted when pressing "enter" on the emoji button; this now has been fixed.

  • Content Editor: An issue where a canvas would stretch to the full width on the preview mode has now been fixed.

  • Design Editor: The overlay of the scrollytelling video wouldn't cover the section fully as you scroll; this now has been fixed and works both on IOS and Android.

🛠️ This Week's Fixes

Our Dev team's bug sprint is in full swing and we have been squashing some of the pesky bugs in the platform. 💪

 

Fix

  
  • Design Editor: For those who have encountered a crash after inserting a text entry upon creating a project; this issue has been fixed.

  • Design Editor: Collapsed height on expandable section could not be lower than height on Desktop for some users; this issue has been fixed.

  • Account Settings: Deleted profile pictures will no longer reappear after a while.

  • Content Editor: Changing a video element will now immediately reflect without needing to reload.

  • Onboarding: For those new users who were experiencing “failed to create publish settings”; this issue has now been fixed.

  • Onboarding: Yikes! New users who are invited to an account will no longer be stuck with the "Create a project" page.

  • Hosting: Project list with long URLs would cause the context menu to disappear to the right; this issue has been fixed.

  • Publishing: Clicking a link in the standard menu would not work in published content if the page URL contains a “/” at the end of it; this issue has been fixed.

This Week's Updates and Fixes

It's finally starting to feel like spring and we are making the occasion with some exciting updates.🌟😉 We're busy working on some large updates, but are happy to introduce two life-enhancing improvements in the meantime that will bring more power to you and your projects.

 

Update

  

Weekly Product Update 010122 (1).png

Page Search

You asked, we built it! You can now search pages in your projects by title on the top page bar. We hope it makes your life a little easier—it's certainly made managing our own site in Vev a breeze.

Pro tip: For optimal performance, we recommend having no more than 20 pages in one project. 🤠

Responsive Background Images

You didn't ask, but we did it anyways! Background images in sections will now load smaller sizes for each device type.

Smaller sizes mean faster response times, and faster response times mean a faster page load. On average, images account for more than 60% of the bytes required to load a web page, so this improvement is a big win for your SEO game.

Our CTO, Nicolay had this to say: "As far as we know, Vev is one of the few platforms supporting automatic responsive background images for all browsers." Let the record show our jaws have officially dropped. 😉

 

Fix

  
  • Design Editor: If you set the border of an element to 0, it would set to 3 by default in the inner strokes; this now has been fixed.
  • Project Export: ZIP files would appear empty on windows computers; this now has been fixed.

⚒️ This Week's Fixes

Since the last update, we have been working hard on new feature releases for y'all (no spoiler alert). 🤫 In the meantime, here are some fixes that we have achieved while cooking up some new features.

 

Fix

  
  • One would lose the Teams overview until they go back to account/teams route; this now has been fixed.
  • Project - Template: Card thumbnails did not reflect the cover photo as seen from Project, this now has been fixed.
  • Integrations: If spaces are added before/after some settings on Integrations, they fail (Google Tag Manager). This now has been fixed.
  • Account - Subscribe: Error occurred when users would try to subscribe; this now has been fixed.
  • Main components (Beta): Adding a main component did not maintain the original dimensions; this now has been fixed.

⚒️ This Week in updates and fixes

This week, we've released new product templates, video tutorials, and some type improvements.

As usual, our Dev team has also been slaying some pesky bugs in the platform this week 💪

 

Update

  

Auto Layout Tutorials

Layout (1).png

Auto layout will help you build responsive components without having to adapt to every breakpoint or device. Instead, simply enable, add a few options, and watch as the responsiveness is taken care of for you.

Watch our new tutorials to see how to bring design elements like buttons cards, and grids to life with auto layout.

Product Templates

Thinking of launching a physical product but your Ecommerce platform feels limiting? Use our new templates to showcase the product itself, the specification and features, and highlight reviews from customers. After, embed directly into any platform or CMS. Now you can experience the ultimate design control you've been looking for.

 

Improvement

  

Type tool enhancements

We've made some changes to the type tool. Now, you can add even more headings like H5 and H6 accessible through a dropdown under H4.

 

Fix

  

Design Editor

  • You will no longer see an "infinite loader" when entering integrations. Welcome back to the "finite" world.

  • Vev logo in top left corner is now linking to https://helpukrainewin.org/ 🇺🇦

  • Sorry for those who have seen some random images and logos of "Stiftelsen Norsk Luftambulanse" popping up in your projects. You will no longer experience these glitches in your matrix 😉

  • (Elements - Charts) Numerical values are now correctly displayed when copy & pasted from Google Sheets.

  • (Elements - Number Counter) Some of you have not been able to use an animations add-on with the “Number counter” element. This now has been fixed.

  • (Page Settings) You can now de-select between “Home/Landing page” and “Not found (404) page” under Page Settings.

  • You can now copy & paste a marked URL (not JSON) from “Publishing destinations”.

  • Some of you have experienced that previous stylings have been lost when copied & pasted a section between two projects; it ain't lost no more.

Code Editor

  • Woop woop! We updated Monaco to the newest version. What’s changed? It now grays out variables that are not in use so that you can easily identify dead code 🧟.

Hosting

  • Some users experienced that hosting settings would clear on FTP adapter when errors occur; this now has been fixed.

Multiplayer editing is live

 

Update

Ready to level up your collaboration game in Vev? Your cross-team workflows are about to get even more seamless with the multiplayer editing feature 💫

Here is what it means for you and your team:

  • You can see your avatar as well as anyone who is currently accessing the project in the top toolbar.
  • If you click on a person's avatar, you will enter an "observation mode", meaning you will be shown what's happening on their screen.
  • Implementing 'undo (ctrl + z)' changes only pertains to the individual user's editing history and will not conflict with others.

Your feedback is incredibly valuable to us. If you run into any issues, or have any suggestions, please contact support in the platform. 😉
