Version 5.1 Update & UI Improvements

Layer Management & Google Fonts & WooCommerce now easier than ever!
Due to the great feedback we received from our customers, we've made some improvements to make building and editing sliders even better.

1. Google Fonts

Previously, setting up Google Fonts was a 2 step process.

But with version 5.1, just select a Google Font for your Text-based layer, and that’s it!

Then after selecting any Google Font, it will show up at the top of the fonts-list drop-down for easy future access.

And then from the slider’s main settings page, the new Google Fonts section is just a reflection of what’s currently assigned to any of the slide’s Text Layers.

Select a slide from the “Used in Slide” dropdown to be take to the slide editor where the font is being used.

And choose to load the “Latin” charset or not for the font.

2. Layers Management & Controls

Previously, Layer controls were connected to the Layer itself on the stage.

But with version 5.1, all of the controls are now conveniently located in a fixed location.

Controls to edit Text, reset the Layer's size, delete the Layer or duplicate the Layer:
Add a new Content Layer:
Toggle between Layers (i.e. "Layer selector"), and rename Layer titles:

3. Additional Improvements

3.1 Thumbnail Admin Purpose

Before, the slide preview image was always taken from the slide’s main background.

But with version 5.1, you have the option to use the slide’s assigned thumbnail as the admin preview as well.

3.2 Toggle FullScreen Layout

New Layer Actions for changing the slider’s Layout to Full-Screen with the click of a button.

3.3 Layer Order, z-index

“z-index” value now listed for each Layer, making it easier to review the stacking order:

4. Woo Commerce

Another feature that has finally made it into version 5.1 of Slider Revolution is WooCommerce Support. You can display a selection of your products and display almost any kind of product information you like.

As always, check out the plugin’s “Update History” for a complete list of new features, changed and bug fixes.
