    New Page Properties Component

    With this update, page properties can now be updated directly from the page as well as via the standard properties panel. Available on the top of every page, this new component not only saves time, but enables the ability to add and crop page images using the standard authoring experience. Immediately see if your pages lack descriptions (an important SEO and accessibility field) and fix it.

    Upload Assets from the Page

    To help bridge the gap between page authoring and the DAM, a new 'Upload' button has been added to the Asset Side Panel that opens your site-specific DAM folder. It aims to save you some time and frustration, especially if you manage multiple sites.

    A New Modern Heading

    To fill out our font catalog, the 'Modern' variant has been reintroduced as a center-aligned, sans serif option to compliment the 'Simple' left-aligned font. Similar in impact to the 'Feature' font, use 'Modern' strategically to introduce major topics such as page titles. Remember to be consistent in your font usage across your site.
