EverWeb 4.2 brings a host of new features designed to streamline the website design process and enhance the functionality of your website. These updates focus on providing more flexibility and ease of use for users, regardless of their technical expertise. Here's an overview of the most notable new features in EverWeb 4.2 and how they can benefit your website design.

Enhanced Shape Options with Background Video and Map Fills

The introduction of Background Video Fill and Map Fill options in the Shape Options-> Fill section marks a significant enhancement for website aesthetics and functionality. These options allow for more dynamic and interactive backgrounds, enabling designers to incorporate videos or maps directly into the design of their pages. Whether it's adding a captivating video background to engage visitors or embedding an interactive map for easy location referencing, these features add a layer of sophistication to your site.

Streamlined Responsive Row Management

Responsive Rows have been upgraded with a new Toolbar, featuring move up, move down, Settings, and Delete buttons, making it easier to adjust the layout of your responsive designs. Additionally, the ability to drag and drop Responsive Rows using the Toolbar or the 3-line Move symbol enhances the user interface, offering a more intuitive way to organize content.

Widget Settings Simplification

The introduction of a Settings Cog icon for all widgets simplifies the process of adjusting widget settings. This update allows for quicker modifications directly from the widget, eliminating the need to navigate through the Inspector panel. This change is aimed at speeding up the design process and making it more accessible.

Enhanced Flexibility with Full Width Widgets

For those utilizing Responsive pages, the addition of move up and move down arrows for all Full Width widgets provides greater control over page layouts. This feature ensures that designers can easily reposition widgets to achieve the desired page flow and design.

Cross-Project Copy & Paste

EverWeb 4.2 now supports the drag and drop of web pages and Master Pages between projects, as well as the ability to copy and paste objects, including images, across projects. This facilitates the reuse of content and layouts, significantly speeding up the design process for users managing multiple websites.

Video and Image Fill Enhancements

Dropping a video onto a page automatically adds a Video Fill shape, streamlining the process of incorporating video content. Additionally, the Image Fill option in Shape Options now includes an Alignment feature, offering more control over the placement of images within shapes.

Technical Improvements

EverWeb 4.2 also introduces the option to select the jQuery version from Publishing Settings, ensuring compatibility and optimization for your website. Additionally, fixes have been implemented for captions in the Responsive Image Gallery widget, issues with dragging objects between Responsive Row Widgets, and problems with importing iWeb image galleries on Windows.

These new features in EverWeb 4.2 are designed to enhance the usability, flexibility, and functionality of the website design process. By simplifying the management of responsive layouts, enabling dynamic content with video and map fills, and improving cross-project resource sharing, EverWeb continues to empower users to create professional-looking websites efficiently.
