In this update, we significantly enriched the functionality of the Text widget. Find more details below.


— You can now find a List toggle in the Advanced Typography menu, allowing you to save list styles separate from text styles. By default, a list style is set to ‘Same as text’.

— You can change the order of styles in the Text Styles/Link Styles panel using drag-n-drop.

New shortcuts

— To copy/paste a style from one widget to another, use Cmd + Opt + C/V.

— To paste text without formatting, use Cmd + Shift + V (or Cmd + Option + Shift + V for Safari).

Text editing

— When you create a new text widget or link, it will automatically have the same font properties (font, font size, line height) as used before, instead of the standard default option.

— You don’t need to select text to change font settings for the whole block — just click anywhere in the widget.

— To change the selection color of the text, you no longer have to use custom code — use the Selection color toggle in the Advanced typography panel instead.
