What is new in WYSIWYG Web Builder 15?

WYSIWYG Web Builder 15 has more than 200 new features/improvements!

Here’s an overview of some of the new features. Note: the screenshots are based on the BETA version. The final release may look slightly different. Besides screenshots there are also links to online examples and tutorials to demonstrate the new functionality.


Direct2D rendering

The graphics engine for workspace rendering has been completely redesigned using hardware acceleration (direct 2d), for better performance and higher quality graphics during design time. This means rendering should be much faster and the graphics will be sharper even when zooming in/out.              


New Icons

The ribbon, toolbars, menus and toolbox have redesigned icons. The style is thin, lined & colored, inspired by the new icons introduced by Microsoft® Office 365® and 2019 suites. The icons have been optimized for High DPI (100%, 150% and 200%).





Secure FTP support

Secure FTP functionality is now built into the application.


In addition to standard FTP and local disk publishing, support for the following protocols has been added:

• FTP with TLS/SSL (Port 990 - Implicit)

• FTP with TLS/SSL (AUTH TLS - Explicit)

• SFTP using SSH2 (Secure Shell)



Standard FTP (winsock) has also been refactored. With better support for different FTP server variants and many other improvements.


Shape Dividers

- New feature: Last year, we released the experimental ‘divider’ template, which turned out to be the most downloaded template to date. So, this year we decided to make it a standard feature! The new shape divider option is available for layers, layout grids and flex box containers. Shape dividers are SVG based shapes that can be used to separate the sections of a page.

There are more than 30 shapes you can choose from, but you can also add custom shape SVG files.  Shapes dividers can be added at the top or bottom (or both) of a layer.

The color specifies the color of the shape. The width specifies the width in percentages, this can be useful if you only want to display a smaller part of the shape, for example 200%, clips the left and right part of the shape. The height is in pixels.  Shapes can be flipped horizontally/vertically. This makes it possible to use shapes that were designed to be used at the top, also at the bottom (flip vertically). The arrangement property controls whether the shape will be displayed underneath the content or on top of content.



A few examples:



Online demo:







Unsplash Integration

- New feature: Browse thousands of free-to-use, high quality images from Unsplash directly within WYSIWYG Web Builder.



Unsplash images can be inserted via the Insert Menu. The Unsplash selection dialog supports search and the ability to set the desired size.

There is also a dedicated Unsplash browse button next to the standard image browse button.








- New feature: Toasts are lightweight notifications designed to mimic the push notifications that have been popularized by mobile and desktop operating systems. They can be displayed at page load or with delay. Multiple Toasts will automatically stack vertically.



The text can be edited just like standard text. So, the same formatting and edit tools are available, including styles, line spacing, letter spacing, bullets, find/replace, lorem ipsum, responsive fonts and link support.


Show Delay specifies the delay (in milliseconds) before the Toast is shown. Set to '-1' to initially hide the Toast, so you can control it via events (show/hide). Hide Delay, delays hiding the toast in milliseconds. Set to '0' to disable auto hide.


Tutorial: https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/toasts.html



Theme Colors

- New feature: Added 'Theme Colors'. By default, WYSIWYG Web Builder's color picker displays a standard color palette with 140 standard web colors. With the 'Theme color' option (inspired by the MS Office color picker) you can configure a custom color palette of 12 colors. The light and dark variants of these colors will be generated automatically.

Tutorial: https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/color_themes.html




Besides the ability to customize the colors, it is also possible to synchronize the colors when they are modified or when you select a different color theme.






- New feature: Added the ability to add an animated preloader image to the page (in Page Properties). A preloader (also known as loading screen) is what you see on some sites before the main content of the web page is loaded.



Preloaders are simple (GIF) animations that are used to keep visitors entertained while server operations finish processing.

WYSIWYG Web Builder can display a (semitransparent) overlay with animated gif when the website loading is in progress. It will disappear right after the page loads.


A collection of standard preloader images is included, but you can also add your own animations by adding a custom gif image to the 'preloader' folder.



Online demo:







Wrap Text

- New feature: Added support for floating layout, so the 'Wrap Text' can also be used inside a layout grid. This makes it possible to wrap text around images or other objects. Child elements can either float left or right.


Tutorial: https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/wrap_text.html



- New feature: Added experimental support for CSS's shape-outside. This will wrap the text around the outline of a (transparent) image or shape, making it possible to wrap text around complex objects rather than simple rectangular boxes. Note that this will only work in modern browsers (Safari, Chrome, FireFox, not in IE or Edge!)




SVG Path Animation

- New feature: Added 'SVG path animation' option. This adds the ability to animate the border (stroke) of SVG shapes, textart, clipart and makes it look like the shape/text is drawn on the web page in real-time;)


For complex shapes (with sub paths), it is possible to delay the rendering of sub paths for even cooler effects.




Tutorial: https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/svg_animations.html




Card Container

- New feature: Added 'Card Container' object. This is a dedicated container for Cards to simplify laying out a series of cards.

The Card Container has the following layout options:




Online demo:





 - New feature: Added support for animations and transitions to card items. Each card item can have its own animations and transitions! Transitions can also be synchronized. This can be useful if you want to trigger all transitions at the same time when you move the mouse over the card instead of over each card item individually.



Online demo:



- New feature: Added 'Copy' button to quickly clone a card item.




- New feature: Added the ability to set the alignment for each text item individually, including justify.





 - New feature: Added the ability to set the line height for text items.

Flex Grid

- Improved: The Flex Grid editor now displays a preview of the alignment for the selected area to get a better idea of how the settings will affect the layout.



- New feature: Added the ability to save custom flexgrid templates. It is also possible to edit or remove pre-defined templates.



- New feature: Added 'Easy Mode'. Many users have asked an easier way to control the flexgrid without having to deal with flexbox.

In "Easy Mode”, the flexgrid behaves just like the Layout grid.


- Improved: It is now possible to rename grid cells while keeping the content.
Note that this will only work if you do not make other changes to the structure of the grid. In other words, if you would like to change the cell names then do not change the column/row structure at the same time, otherwise there will be no way for the software to know the relation between the old and new names.


Layout Grid

- New feature: Added 'Footer (fixed)' and 'Footer (floating)' mode. This makes it possible to use a layout grid as (fixed) footer. This also works with master pages.


Online demo:



- New feature: Added 'Sticky' mode. A sticky Layout Grid is treated as relatively positioned element until it reaches the top, at which point it is sticks to the top. This is standard HTML feature that only works in modern browsers (not in IE/Edge).



Online demo:




- New feature: Added 'pattern overlay'. Add (semitransparent) pattern overlays to the background image/video. More than 50 pattern styles to choose from.



Online demo:




Flex Container

- New feature: Added 'Footer (fixed)' and 'Footer (floating)' mode. This makes it possible to use a Flex Container as (fixed) footer. This also works with master pages.


- New feature: Added 'Sticky' mode. A sticky Flex Container is treated as relatively positioned element until it reaches the top, at which point it is sticks to the top. This is a relative new HTML feature and requires a modern browser:



- New feature: Added 'pattern overlay'. Add semitransparent pattern overlays to the background image/video.




- Improved: The text editor is now fully integrated into the workspace. WWB no longer loads an overlay editor, but handles all editing internally (via ITextHost): this means that it’s faster, it uses the same rendering in edit/display mode and we have more control over the output.


- Improved: HTML code generator for text has been completely redesigned with direct RTF to HTML conversion for more accurate rendering results.


- Improved: Line spacing now supports 2 decimals after the comma: 1.05, 1.14 etc.

- New feature: Added 'Format Painter' functionality to text editor to quickly apply the same formatting to other text.



- New feature: Added colored Emoji support (requires Windows 10).




- New feature: Added ‘Paste (keep text only)’ command. This will paste the text from the clipboard without formatting. Also available via Ctrl+Shift+V




- Improved: The unofficial <marquee> tag has been replaced with CSS3 animations for better compatibility with (modern) browsers. W3C compliant!

- Improved: Exported SVG now uses cublic beziers for much better graphics.



- New feature: Added 'Copy Style' and Paste Style' command to object's context menu. This make it possible to quickly copy style properties to multiple objects (in addition to the format painter).




Style Manager

- New feature: Added 'Filter' properties. The filter property defines visual effects, like blur, brightness, contrast, grayscale, hue-rotate, invert, saturate and sepia. The effect will be applied to the object and all its children.





- New feature: Added 'Backdrop Filter' properties. The backdrop-filter property lets you apply graphical effects to the area behind an element.  Because it applies to everything behind the element, to see the effect you must make the element or its background at least partially transparent.




This requires a modern browser!




Online demo:

- Improved: 'Disable scroll transitions on small screens' in Page Properties now also disables the parallax effect.



- Improved: Search Engine Optimization settings now have a dedicated section in the page properties.


- New feature: Added 'Canonical URL' property. If you have different pages with similar content (for example, a page with both a mobile and a desktop version), Google sees these as duplicate versions of the same page. Google will choose one URL as the canonical version and crawl that, and all other URLs will be considered duplicate URLs and crawled less often.

More information: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/139066?hl=en


- New feature: Added 'hreflang' configuration. The hreflang attribute tells Google which language you are using on a specific page, so the search engine can serve that result to users searching in that language. The links will also be added to the site map.

Web Icons
- Improved: Web Icons settings now have a dedicated section in the page properties.


- New feature: Added the ability to add 32x32 and 64x64 favorite icons to support modern browsers. These icons are in standard PNG format.


- New feature: Added the ability to configure multiple Apple Touch Icons to target different devices.


Similar to the Favicon, the Apple Touch Icon is a file used for a web page icon on the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. When the user bookmarks the web page or adds the page to their home screen, this icon is used. Apple Touch Icons are also supported by most Android devices. Unfortunately, different devices require different image sizes. So, that is why we have now added the ability to configure multiple sizes.




Border Images

- New feature: Added 'Border Image' support. With border images you can create complicated, visually rich borders around elements like text, images, layers, layout grid etc. Besides built-in pre-defined border images you can also use your own images. The border images have several repeat options like repeat, space, round or stretch.


Tutorial: https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/borders.html





Background Properties

- New feature: Added new background repeat option: space. The background-image is repeated as much as possible without clipping. The first and last images are pinned to either side of the element, and whitespace is distributed evenly between the images.



- New feature: Added new background repeat option: round. The background-image is repeated and squished or stretched to fill the space (no gaps).





- New feature: Added "Open the most recent used page of the project" option. When loading the project, this will open the page that was active when you last saved the project.



- New feature: Added option to enable/disable ctrl+click+drag (duplicate objects) functionality.



- New feature: Added “Publish navigation icons as SVG image”. This will output the icons as embedded SVG (scalable vector image) instead as font and reduces the overall size of the website if you only use a few icons.



This option applies to icons used in: Breadcrumbs, Cards, Mega Menu, Overlay Menu, Panel Menu, Responsive Menu, Tabs, Themeable Menu and Toasts.


- New feature: Added Visual Studio 2019 Light Blue theme.

Responsive Web Design

- New feature: Added 'Automatically scale new objects in other breakpoints' option.

(Tools -> Options -> General)

Normally when you insert a new object, it will be inserted at the same position and with the same size as the default view.  The new option 'Automatically scale new objects in other breakpoints' is enabled, new objects will automatically scale and reposition in other breakpoints relative to the breakpoint size. It will also scale the font size of some objects when possible. This may speed of the implementation of (fixed) responsive layouts.



- Improved: The option "Include min-width in CSS3 media queries " has been replaced with “Activate breakpoints when browser window is smaller than the device width” and “Activate breakpoints when browser window is larger than the device width” to make the functionality clearer. Also, ‘max-width’ has been renamed to ‘device width’.



Object Manager

- Improved: Added the ability to re-arrange objects using drag & drop before and after other objects. An ‘insert line’ indicates the new position.



- Improved: Added the ability to re-arrange objects using drag & drop on layers (including layout grid/flexbox).


- Improved: Added the ability to move objects between floating layers (including layout grid/flexbox). This is not possible for fixed layout because then you have no visible feedback where the object will move to!


- New feature: Added 'Assets Folder' property (context menu). This adds the ability to specify a different output folder per object! For example, set the images folder for one object (gallery) to a different folder. This overrides the global publish settings.



- Changed: 'Allocated filenames' has been renamed to 'Internal filenames'.



- New feature: Added the possibility to use wildcards in Publish File types

(Tools->Options->Publish). This makes it possible to publish specific files (based on the filename, in addition to file extensions) to a different folder.



- Improved: Publish File types are now saved in the project file so they can be different for each project.




- Improved: Added 'Preview current page' option in addition to 'Preview entire website'.



- Improved: Added 'PHP Preview Warning'. When you try to preview a website with PHP, the application will now display a warning that the pages may not display correctly, because PHP can only be viewed online through a web server.



Verify Links

- New feature: Added 'Filter' option. This make it possible to filter links to make it easier to find URLs when you have a long list of links. It is also possible to filter the links based on the page name.




- New feature: Added 'self' target. When you select this as the target then WWB will automatically use the ID of the current object. This may be useful when you copy the object, so you do not have to manually edit the 'self' events.



- New feature: Added 'enable' and ‘disable’ actions. This can be used to disable/enable a form elements (button, checkbox, radio button, editbox, combobox, textarea).




Mega Menu

- New feature: Now supports font icons, this replaces the (fixed) jQuery UI icon set. Not only will this give you a wider selection of icons, but with will also improve the quality of the images.

Online demo:



- New feature: Added alpha support to transition colors. This also works with scroll transitions!




Animation Manager

- New feature: Added 'Merge' option. This option will merge the default animations with your own collection.

Why? We regularly add new animations to the default collection. However, if you have customized animations then your custom collection will not be overwritten, so this means that new animations are not added to your list automatically. The 'Merge' option will make it easier to add these new animations to your custom collection.

if you do not have modified animations then the merge button will be disabled.

Online demo:


- Improved:
The 'Frames' option has been replaced by the standard CSS 'border-image'. Adding a frame (now border image) will no longer affect the image size, quality or make it non-responsive.
