We have some good news for you this Friday. Responsive Site Designer 3.5 build 2939
is now live and ready for download.
Lots of cool stuff has been added to the interface to help simplify your workflow and make it easier to interact with the canvas. Enjoy fresh icons, an updated toolbar that matches the framework, CSS selector gages, plus clearer element indicators. Both Bootstrap frameworks also got upgraded to v4.3.0 and v3.4.1. The adjustments are vast but here are the highlights...A smarter viewport slider and breakpoint bar.
The viewport slider and breakpoint bar have been tweaked for better visibility. The slider will light up to indicate which breakpoint area you are designing for.
The breakpoints themselves are more defined with an arrow shape directing mobile first or desktop down workflows. You can also switch the viewport measurements. Click the current breakpoints measure indicator to toggle between PX and EM.Quickly add and replace images.
Directly from the canvas you can now manage your image resource. Simply double click the Picture element to launch the resources dialog and swap out the placeholder.
A few people reported the Undo/Redo action was going haywire when replacing images. So we also stomped out this small bug while we added the image UI feature.Inspector filter with search functionality.
Locate a class or element fast by keying in the term into the search. The app will bring up all the items that are a match and will highlight them on the canvas.Cool double-click actions when working with components.
Double click an item from the Components Dialog to automatically add the item to your project. You can also hit that mouse twice on an existing category when importing a component. We also included some handy right-click actions to the element tree as well.Handy CSS Grid layout elements.
Quickly add common layouts, two, three, and four column structures. These elements are made up of nested containers preconfigured to expand and stack when the screen size allows. A CSS Grid control will appear upon hover so you can launch the grid editor fast.Adjustment to the Text Editor.
As reported, the text editor seemed to no longer allow for highlight selections or jump to points. We fixed this up so you can work with your text easier.Important note for macOS users.
Please be aware that this version has a new name. Now it is prefixed with 'CoffeeCup' this way all of our apps are grouped together. Therefore you might need to remove the old `Site Designer` to ensure the new one 'CoffeeCup Site Designer' is always used.
Hope you enjoy the release everyone. Have a great day!
