Import Item from Gridbox Library

Save as Global Item

Well, with Gridbox Libraries you have the opportunity move page items between pages. But let's imagine the following situation. Your beautiful page item, for example... button with custom options, placed on 5-6 pages, and you decided to change border color for button. What to do, open and edit button border on every page...?

To make your life easier, we have added the ability to create "Global Items".

What does it mean?! If your item is global, and you decide to change it, the changes will take place immediately on all pages.

NOTE: If you delete Global item from the library, from pages items will be removed automatically!

All seems are very simple, and this is what we wanted! The idea of creating such instrument as a Library was sitting in our heads for a long time.

Why we did not launched "Libraries" before?! Because, to make something very simple and easy, it requires a lot of work.
