We added a new modal option to help you create a slick user experience.
Modal is now under “Open Page” action
If you don’t see the “Open Modal” action, don’t worry. That’s because we’ve consolidate it under the “Open Page” action, so you can choose to open a Softr page in either the same tab, new tab, or a modal.
(Global) edit permissions have been retired
With the introduction of permissions settings at the button/action level, we’ve also retired the old way of setting up edit permissions.
The edit permissions that you set up previously have been automatically migrated to the button level, so everything should work fine as usual.See more details here
Thanks for rolling this out. Nice to have a native function for editing records vs using another form app.
Do you have an estimated timeline on the future enhancements? Specifically the visibility options for action buttons? I’d like the Create action on a related table to be conditional on a field in detail record.
Issue with buttons in the grid block: Currently I’m not sure how to recreate the same formatting I had with the row heights set to xs in my new block. It looks like I can’t adjust the sizing of the button/layout like i normally would with say, a tag for instance. Hopefully this will get added soon? I’m happy we have new feature, but it’s making it so I can’t release our beta I had configured on time without disappointing project team because formatting/layout is impacted…
Sure! I pinged support (looks like they’re out for rest of today but I’ll definitely follow up with access to view config tomorrow) but the gist of it really seems less me-specific and more “style/customization features that are no longer accessible to configure” as a result of the update.
I just did a comparison of what the old button element inside my old table was able to change vs the new button element, the strikethrough items show what new version has lost (and why I believe I can’t recreate the same appearance): text size (table label)
text color (table label)
Font family (table label)
Font weight (table label)
Letter Spacing (table label)
General: Width (table label)
General: Alignment (table label)
text size (Content)
text color (Content)
Font family (Content)
Padding Left, Right, Top, Bottom (Content)
General: Background Color (Content)
General: Border (Content)
General: Alignment (Content)
General: Roundness (Content)
General: Margin Left, Right (Content)
Not visible in the “styles”, but in the old “Content” Tab: Ability to set the order of column/attribute presentation (for a button, specifically)
I have not yet gotten to the point of re-creating other block-types that will likely have the same reduction in formatting options (ability to ensure the size/alignment of button is consistent with overall block formatting & ability to choose where the button is located within the block arrangement itself)
