StackHive 2.0 | Release Log 2nd April, 2015.

Today marks a new milestone for StackHive.

We have had a lot of great feedback from the StackHive community, and are doing our best to deliver improvements and enhance your experience with the product. This is our first major release after the launch! Below is a list of bug fixes, optimizations and enhancements we are rolling out today.

Hope to hear your feedback so we can keep improving your experience with StackHive

  1. New Feature - BOOKMARKS

    Bookmarks allow you to create custom elements and save them inside your projects. Any Bookmark created can be inserted into the page using Drag-Drop or Precision Insert. You can directly create Bookmarks from any element on your web page by selecting the it and clicking "Add a Bookmark" in the Bookmark Panel on the left. You can even create/import HTML and CSS Code from anywhere and easily utilize them inside StackHive.

    The most useful examples we found for it were -

    1. Saving custom grid markups like 3 Columns to 2 Columns + 1 Row on smaller screens
    2. Saving elements that are used on a lot of pages/projects like a Pricing Table.
    3. Importing elements from one project to another through Bookmarks.

    There are a lot of things that you can do with it, so its up to you on how to make the best use of it :)
