Release 5.13 – Layers Panel Improvements

Released February 3rd, 2014. This release brings workflow improvements to the layers panel, including copying, pasting, moving, and reordering multiple layers and objects.

Move and Reorder Multiple Objects or Layers

One of the most requested features, you can now select multiple objects or layers, and reorder, move, copy, and paste with ease.

After selecting multiple objects from the Layers Panel, reorder or move them into new layers with drag and
drop ease.

513-02

Use the Shift key to select objects or layers in a sequence just like you would in your file browser.

Use the Cmd key (Mac) or Ctrl key (Windows) to include or exclude individual objects or layers.

Copy and Paste Multiple Layers

Once you’ve selected multiple layers, go ahead and press Cmd/Ctrl + C to copy them.

513-03

Now use Cmd/Ctrl + V to paste them anywhere you like: the same page, another page, or even another Ceros experience in a different browser window.

513-04

What about all your layer show/hide actions? Will those be copied, too? Yes, we went through great lengths to ensure your show/hide actions are maintained whenever you copy and paste the action and target layers together.

Quickly Copy Pages

Need to duplicate a whole page? That’s a snap!

Press Cmd/Ctrl + A and you’ll select all your layers in the Layers Panel.

513-05

Now copy and paste those into a new page and voila, you’ve instantly duplicated that page.

All your images, videos, actions, animations… you name it, it’s copied in a flash.

Clean the Slate by Deleting All Layers

Likewise, after you using Cmd/Ctrl + A to select all layers, you are now able to press the Delete key to quickly clear the page of any contents. This includes the locked “Background” layer that every page starts with.

Just one more way we’re speeding up your workflow.

Quickly Delete a Page

To save yourself a few clicks, click on any page in the Ceros Studio, and you can now press the Delete key to quickly and easily delete that page.

New Preview Loading Screen

When setting up a Ceros embed or emailing customers a link, sometimes even we mistakenly use the preview URL instead of the live published URL.

513-06

We’re not big fans of interfering with your beautifully designed fully-loaded experiences, so we thought we’d include a gentle reminder during the Real-time Preview connection sequence.
