What’s new in Page Builder’s new version?

Because everything is still in the development stage, we can’t share it in detail now. But we will give you a glimpse of some new features that you can expect in the new version of our Magento 2 Page Builder. So let’s take a tour to see what they are!

1. Frontend live editing builder

Do you find building content in the backend is quite time-consuming and inconvenient? You need to preview changes on a separate page, and does it make you feel annoyed? All these problems will be resolved in Page Builder’s new version. So what advantages can you get from this prominent new feature?

  • True Visual Editing: You can now build and manage your content with an intuitive frontend builder to enhance the speed and productivity of design. Every design is changed in real-time and live. You will no longer need to switch to preview mode to see the changes.
  • Inline Editor: With this feature, you can add, edit, and style text content directly on your page and see the result instantly without opening an element’s settings panel.
  • Right-Click Controls: This feature allows you to access actions quickly just by one right-click event such as edit element, duplicate, copy, paste, delete, save as a template, and navigator.
  • Multi-Drag & Drop Elements: You’re able to choose multiple elements on a page and move them around at once.
  • Keyboard Shortcuts: The new version will come up with various keyboard shortcuts to help you speed up your workflow.

2. Control over styling

Magento 2 Page Builder’s new version also gives you more control over customizing styles for elements without touching a line of code. Besides some existing design options such as modifying colors, backgrounds, borders, etc., this upcoming version will come with various options to help you create a beautiful web design like using graphic design tools.

Below are a few new features we have in the works:

  • Hover State Styling: You can customize any element’s design on hover mode.
  • Transform: This feature gives you another chance to move an element around instead of setting specific paddings and margins.
  • Drop Shadows: There is no need to use CSS to add shadow for elements; you now have full control over creating custom drop shadows for every element.
  • Text Shadows: You can also modify texts to be more attractive by adding shadows to them.
  • Fonts & Text Styling: You will have more options for customizing text styles such as font styles, sizes, letter spacing, line height, text styling, and font weights.

4. Some other features

multiple-select-and-bulk-editing

Besides adding new features related to builder interface, layout, and styling, we’re also developing some other effective features that will help you shorten the time in editing pages.

  • Multiple-Select & Bulk Editing: You can select multiple elements on a page at once then edit them simultaneously.
  • Find & Replace Styles: Instead of opening each element to edit its design, you can find and change element design across the entire page or within specific locations.
  • Extend-able Styles: This feature allows you to adjust and extend a style through the page or specific elements within specific locations. 
  • Global Website Styles: You can manage your entire website’s design with the Global website styles feature. For example, when you set an element as a global default, its design will be updated at once in the entire website, and you don’t have to customize each one.
  • Presets: If you like a design of any element and want to use it later, this feature is for you. You can utilize Presets feature to create an element with your desired design and use it in any location without modifying from scratch.
