In case you can't watch the video above, here's a summary of the latest changes:-

More...

​1. Credit Card Element

You can now add credit card icons underneath your purchase buttons and call to actions.  You can select which credit cards you'd like to display depending on the cards that you accept.

2. Exit Popup Safety

We've added an exit popup to prevent you from accidentally closing the window that you're working on and losing any unsaved changes.

3. Modify Image Button

You can now change images that have already been dropped into the canvas by using the new modify image button.

Previously you had to delete the image and then re-add it.​

4. New Content Builder API

We have built a new API for the Content Builder so that you can add your own elements to the Control Panel.

You can read more about the API here.​

5. Text Align: Justify Option

You now have the option to justify your text as well as all the existing "left", "right", "center" alignment options

More Features on their way Soon...

We have a bunch of new features that will be launched very shortly.  Stay tuned for announcements and don't forget to upgrade your plugin to get the latest version!

Thanks for being a Content Builder Early-Bird Customer!

    I would like to see a text icon UI, otherwise everytime I have to point at icons and wait to see what that does :D

    • Paul McCarthy says:

      Ray I’m not entirely sure what you mean by that? Can you elaborate?

      • Peter Sundstrom says:

        Hi Paul.

        What Ray means is that instead of graphical icons for the various actions, that they have text labels on them.

        A bit like the option you get in most browsers to have simple icons or icons with their text label on them, rather than having to mouse over them to see what action they perform.

        Cheers

      • Shaun says:

        Agreed, that would make things a lot easier.

    • Richard Gaspa says:

      Great suggestion! I was thinking the same thing. I hate having to click every icon each time to find out what it dose.

      • Paul McCarthy says:

        That’s why we have tooltips so you can hover over each icon and some text will appear to tell you what the icon does.

        The problem with having text on every button is that the Control Panel will grow to around 3 or 4 times the size off the bat and will take up too much space for us to add new elements over time (which we plan to do)

        Ha glad someone could understand that comment. I was absolutely shattered when I posted!!

  • I was working with this updated version, and when I pasted text into a text field, Safari crashed. Can this be prevented?

    • Paul McCarthy says:

      I can’t replicate this with Safari on PC. Are you working on a PC or Mac?

      • David Sorensen says:

        I work on Mac. With earlier versions it also constantly happened.

        When I paste text without returns, it’s fine. But when I paste text that has a hard return in it… Crash!

      • Paul McCarthy says:

        Interesting, I’ll look into this. Need to buy a Mac :/

      • Paul McCarthy says:

        Sent you an email

  • Jesus says:

    Awesome, thanks for this great updates

  • Bryan says:

    Hi Paul,

    Are you going to be adding the ability to align images beside text? Put images to the left or to the right of text? Look above how for bullet points 1, 3, 4 and 5 you have images either to the left or to the right of the content. Any plans for that?

    What about the ability to add alt tag, title, caption to images?

    An undo button would also be great.

    • David says:

      I agree with Brian! These functions are quite basic.

    • Paul McCarthy says:

      Everything you see on this page has been built with the Content Builder so it sounds to me like the problem is a lack of supporting documentation / tutorials as to how to achieve this. For example, you can already align images to the left or right of text.

      Alt tag, title and captions I just implemented last night and will be pushing out later on today.

      Undo is also something I’m looking at, but need to find the most efficient way of doing this as possible.

      • Bryan says:

        I think I went through all the tutorial videos and I don’t think you showed how to align images beside the text. I took a look at the user guide and FAQ but I can’t find any information about it either. So if that option is already available, please provide a video or update the user guide to show how to do it.
