Side toolbar

A New Look: Side Toolbar

Previously, we had a floating toolbar that would appear near a component that you wanted to edit. We have given a major revamp to editing controls so that now, whenever you click on a component, you will have the settings neatly arranged in a side toolbar on the right-hand side of the editor.

Save a Page as a Template

In addition to sharing a page as a template through a duplicate link, we have included the ability for you to save a particular page you want to reuse within your site as a template. You and your collaborators will be able to apply your saved templates in just a couple of clicks when creating a blank page.

For full instructions on how to save a page as a template, check out this guide.
