Change Log – March 2017

March 8, 2017

2016 was a super busy year for our whole team and for our customers and now it’s March already! How did that happen? We are back on track, so take a look at the new and improved features from the last two months.

Changing the value of the attribute during the design process

User can change values of selected attributes in the editor. He can also change selected theme or skin (parameters of the editor).

Prints custom ordering

We’ve redesigned and redeveloped the whole editor for Prints, so it has a brand new architecture. We’ve also added the possibility to order custom quantity, instead of being limited to bulk ordering. Every print can be different (different size or paper quality). Price is calculated dynamically.

Safe area validation for text component

We’ve added a validation process in the editor. After putting a text field outside the safe area – there will be warning to check this issue. This feature is especially important in the business cards case.

Powerful engine to calculate the final price

The price is calculated based on selected values of attributes. The attribute could affect price combinatorically or additively. Both ways can be mixed in one product family. That way of calculation with exclusions of values allows us to cover even the most complicated cases.

Logo component in the admin editor

We’ve added the logo component not editable for the end user, that will handle company’s logo. The last page mode can be useful in the calendar case, when the logo is always on the last page (it doesn’t have to be December).
