A brand new user interface for the Design Editor
We have made some pretty significant changes to the layout of our Design Editor.
You will now find the toolbar as a horizontal top bar instead of the vertical left as it was previously. We have done this to declutter the editor to make it more spacious and intuitive.
Contextual tools: are found in the center of the toolbar. Which tools you see depends on the objects selected
Main Components [Beta]: Any time you make a change to a Main Component, it updates all the component’s instances automatically. This will save you time on repetitive work, speed up your design workflow, and make maintenance and collaboration easier, while also improving your site’s performance
Bundle drag: Has been added to objects on the canvas, and comes in two modes:
Use the icon at the top of an object’s frame to simultaneously move the object and everything below the top of the selected object
Use the icon at the bottom to move everything below the bottom of the selected object’s frame while simultaneously stretching the selected object
Forking Vev Components: In the Code Editor, You now have the possibility to make a copy of a Vev Component that allows you to freely experiment with it without affecting the original
Widgets have been renamed to Elements to remove confusion, as “widgets” is typically used for extra functionality
The Add Menu has gotten a makeover with an all-new layout with categories
Addons are now a contextual tool
The Vev Store is gone, but don’t worry: The library has been moved into the Add Menu. You no longer have to install a package, as they’re all readily available for use
Pages have also gotten a new look and feel to it with a new overview layout
The Code Editor has been moved into the editor
Components and FormData now preview directly in the Code Editor
