New interactive timeline preview

The timeline view now becomes more powerful with live animation preview mode and ability to drag-n-drop to set preview range:

  • You can simply select a part of your slide to preview by marking the start point & end point directly in the timeline.
  • Or you can drag the timeline ruler and see the animation changes in live preview for real time.

And even when the preview is running, you still can edit items’ effects. It will be very convenient for you to check and edit each item in the slider.

New item effect editor

In the last version, you can only choose the effect for the item from the default dropdown list. Now from version 1.2.0, you have more power on effect customization with the new item effect editor. You can combine multiple effects such as rotation and scaling in the same time by providing suitable transform values.

New item effect editor

From JSN EasySlider v1.2.0, you can edit effect for multiple items at once. When you choose multiple items and double click one item, you can see the animation preset appear with better UX design to select more easily. Just need to select one effect and then it will be applied to all other selected items.

New media selector

From now on, you have more options to add images to slider:

  • Choose from library
  • Insert URL of image
  • Use an image placeholder

When you insert a placeholder, you can drag-n-drop it to get perfect size for your need. This option will be very helpful if you are working in a team, when your role is making a mockup and someone will finish your idea.

It will be more convenient for you to work from the backend with the keyboard shortcut for your action:
