Recently a lot of Affino sites have stared to implement custom CSS. We’re going to make this both easier in Affino 7, and remove the main need for doing so at the same time.
Most of the time custom styles are used, are when fonts / titles / content styling needs tweaking. Till now Affino has had very limited native options for styling text. That will all change in Affino 7 with tight control over different headings, content and titles.
We are also making it possible to completely lock down your custom CSS on design styles, which will give you full control over the styling, but has the side-effect of making the styles less ‘future proof’.
You will also have a great new Design Style preview so you can instantly see your styling.
Web pages increasingly have sticky buttons (ones which always stay on the page), especially navigation buttons. Affino will be no exception with Sticky Buttons, which also can have a focused effect.
We are also introducing popup panels for the first time, which will allow for much more visually rich and capable popup navigation.
Design Menus will be changed from being tables to CSS. This single change will mean big improvements in styling flexibility and speed.
We have a number of other enhancements lined up, but we’ll need to see which ones beat the cut before we elaborate on them further.
What are your thoughts, are there other styling enhancements you would like to see in Affino?
