New ‘Add Column’ Option in BlockControls
Adding rows with multiple columns made easy with Qubely. Until this v1.0.1 update, you could easily choose from a variety of predefined inner-column number options. It’s a quick way to get what you want. To provide you with more flexibility, we’ve added a new option to the BlockControl bar.
In the column block, now you will get a new ‘plus’ icon pressing which you can add new columns to an existing block. It’s really convenient – isn’t it?
Utilized Gutenberg Popover Component
Starting from this update, we’ve been utilizing Gutenberg Popover component in Social Icons and Icon List blocks. This will enable a better user experience while live editing these blocks.
The block options popup now automatically adjusts its position on the top of the other elements on the page based on the available space.
Notable Fixes in this Update
Besides the above described two important additions, Qubely 1.0.1 offers some noteworthy fixes to several known issues. We received your feedback about the style breaking issue in the preview mode. The latest update fixes this problem, so you will see the appropriate styling while previewing a post or page in the works. The child row-column CSS issue was also solved.
The Social Icons block’s inline editing issue has been addressed as well, that means now you can edit the text inline and save right away. Previously, the inline changes used to lost due to a bug. Other fixes solve 2 minor bugs in the Pricing and Icon List blocks.
