Firstly, well done to @Louis and the Cwicly team for rolling out such a great release.
I have spent a lot of time recently posting about what we want that isn’t there (e.g. feature requests) and what we don’t want that is there (e.g. bugs), but I think it’s time to mention some of the many things we want that are there right now!
My first thought on this release is that it perfectly represents the phrase “The sum of the parts is greater than the whole”.
Tag selector improvements
This is the dark horse of the release - although it has been requested to be able to enter any value for tags, not only was that delivered, but a host of other small gems. Having a consistent place to access it, even for headings is a very nice optimisation and deserves to be acknowledged! While it does require an extra click to choose the heading level, that is a fair trade for all of the benefits that come with it.
Freeform value entry and a dropdown with common values
Even though many of us requested this and we all knew we wanted it, having it in the UI makes such a huge difference… especially for things like the font-weight, it really helps after a long day of coding when looking at the screen and being able to see the value you have chosen in context. Absolutely awesome addition.
Realtime class preview on hover
This is the cherry on the cake, so to speak. Huge value add for both developers and site editors, not only for ease of use, also for reducing the possibility of the wrong class being chosen.
Overall a big win - thanks again to Cwicly for being so responsive and constantly evolving.
First off, thanks for investing so much of your valuable time here and sharing all of your ideas, thoughts - as well as pointing out the bugs you discover @StrangeTech.
I can’t add much, since most of the important stuff has been already mentioned, and I have to agree with all of them.
1-2 points maybe; the minor thing first.
Replacing the html tag placeholder with the default block tag is great and should not be underestimated.
Then, and that’s my secret favorite of this update.
Separating the main (HTML) area from the design (block options and CSS) area by bringing the tabs together below the main area is a major change which improves the workflow drastically.
After spending some time with it, it’s turning out exactly the way I have imagined when proposing.
Keeping the main area consistent throughout all tabs does the rest. It’s so good.
