Edit Mode

Invotra launches a whole new flow for it’s publishing experience. In this vastly improved, joined-up edit mode, content managers and creators can move seamlessly between widgets, layouts and templates, making it faster than ever to get work done.

Sidebars: Whatever you’re working on, the sidebar gets out of the way when you need to focus and steps in when action is required.

Alert messages: Quick reminders guard against you ever losing work, whether you’re editing at double speed or tweaking text and images.

Content fields: Complete refresh and reflow of content fields in sections and content types for a more spacious, calm and considered experience.

Widget Library: New categories are specific and each widget gives you a helping hand as to what it is and how to use it when you click ‘I’.
