Live Designer

Feature Overview

Live Designer is a new feature released in Vinyl 3.3 to provide a quicker method for developer users to edit pages. Live Designer provides an interactive editing environment where you can see updates applied to pages in real time. Editing takes place in the right hand panel and is contextual based on the content being selected from the page view.

The traditional method to edit pages uses Page Edit, which is available when navigating to the App Workbench.
