The Beta is almost ready! If you have a developer’s license, keep an eye on your inbox and on Twitter for when the announcement breaks.
Meantime, I’m priming the pump by putting together some videos to show what awaits you. In this first one, we’re taking just quick look at a tour that shows new users around the Headway Visual Editor. This video is 2:49 long, so it’s a quick watch. If you can’t see it in your reader or email, be sure to click on the headline to visit the blog post directly.
As you can see, 3.0’s Visual Editor has grown up into a friendly design environment, with major functional areas having their own frame within the window:
- Layout and Design have separate controls, so you can focus on page structure separately from visual elements like color.
- The Layout Selector on the left lets you drill down to what you’re editing.
- The Control Panel at the bottom shows you the details and individual element controls of what you’ve chosen to edit.
- The Layout Selector and the Control Panel are collapsible and expandable.
Be sure to subscribe to the Headway blog for more videos as they come while we get closer to releasing the Headway 3.0 Beta.
