Macaw v1.5 Release Notes

Rich Text Editing

You can now add span, anchor (links), em and strong tag nodes and style them inside your text elements. The rich text styles are also responsive and they can have states as well. To get started begin editing a text element, select some text, add a node and style away.


Now you can define hover, focus and active states for each of your elements. Macaw will automatically consolidate your styles when publishing to keep your CSS nice and tidy.

Display Toggling

Macaw now allows you to toggle the display and visibility of elements. These settings can be changed per breakpoint so you can build more complex design systems.

Embed Tool

Now you can add videos, maps, iframes and custom HTML blocks to your document.

Responsive Backgrounds and Shadows

Background images, gradients and shadows are all now responsive. They can also be modified for every state.
