Introducing Grid Builder V2

 

The version 2 of the popular Grid Builder brings features, improvements, and creative possibilities to redefine your grid-building experience. It includes some advanced features for dynamic layouts such as new options to create repeatable patterns, more options to control the responsiveness of the grid, new shortcuts and QOL features, and some bug fixes/UI improvement.

 

There is a better way to create and manage your Query Loops!

 

Introducing the global query loops! You are now able to save query settings in a manager for easy global management. Change any query variable, and it applies across the entire site. Categorize, filter, and add descriptions to each global query for simple maintenance. Generating global queries is a one-click task from the Bricks UI, and selecting them in the builder is a breeze through a dedicated dropdown menu.

 

Generate multi-layer Box-shadows with ease!

 

Level up your designs with awesome box-shadows created in just a few clicks. You can either choose from a large library of presets, or use the generator to create complex multi-layer box-shadows without any coding.

 

Autogenerate your template thumbnails in few clicks!

 

This new feature allows you to generate templates for any section of your page right from the preview window (or the contextual menu of the structure panel). The quick-save function generates a thumbnail and attaches it to your templates while also displaying a preview of the saved DOM structure.

 

A no-code solution to wrap your content inside HTML tags

 

Wrap or unwrap your content inside any desired HTML tag for the Basic Text and the Heading Elements effortlessly. You can also add extra classes, styles, or even an href tag without writing any HTML code!

 

Copy & Paste your interaction/condition settings

 

Stop manually creating similar interactions and conditions one by one! Now, with a simple one-click operation, save tons of time and ensure consistent results by cloning your settings from one element to another.

 

AI gets some love!

 

Transform any audio file into text! Simply upload your audio file in the dedicated modal and wait for the magic to happen: the whole transcription will be generated inside the builder and ready to be pasted.
