Version 1.1.1.0730 | Shell Build 1.0.5.0

A new version of Google Web Designer is available! Six new feature areas have been implemented, and 25 issues have been fixed as part of this release. Read below for additional details.

Document Upgrade

Files created in previous builds will be upgraded when they are opened in Google Web Designer v1.1.1.

The upgrade process seamlessly copies your old documents and converts the copy and all the assets into a v1.1 document. Your original document will remain in the older format and placed in the archive folder.

This file upgrade is necessary because:

  1. Google Web Designer no longer generates code for components. Component code now uses Web Components (CustomElements).
  2. Events are now supported for all elements, not just components.
  3. The CSS code generated by the Timeline is different from v1.
  4. The new version uses Project folders. A Google Web Designer document typically consists of the HTML markup, assets, Javascript files and CSS stylesheets. They are now bundled in a folder, which represents the Google Web Designer document.

Auto Update (Internet connection required)

If you have a previous version of Google Web Designer, it will be automatically updated to the latest version.

Important: Google Web Designer requires an internet connection to run the first time after installation.

Improvements and additions to six feature areas have been implemented since version 1.0.6.0428

New Events System

The new events system lets you author highly interactive documents. You can author a wide array of new component and timeline actions in response to events on any element in any GWD document. You can also write your own custom actions in JavaScript and convert predefined actions to custom actions and back, opening up many opportunities for creativity.

Publish to DoubleClick Studio

You can now publish your creatives directly to DoubleClick Studio. Google Web Designer adds the studio enabler code, and associates the ad with the appropriate account, advertiser, and campaign.

Publish to Google Drive

You can publish Google Web Designer files to Google Drive, letting you work collaboratively and share creatives more easily.

Pages are supported in HTML

You can now use the “page” paradigm in HTML, by choosing “HTML with Pages” when you create a new file.

New Timeline

The animation timeline has been reworked to include animation scrubbing, timeline events, auto keyframing, new UI for repeating animation and infinite animation, and the ability to switch back and forth between Quick and Advanced mode as needed.

Web Components

Each component had been rewritten as web components, including the 360 Gallery, Carousel Gallery, Swipeable Gallery, iFrame, Map, Tap Area, Video and YouTube. Canvas shapes are also implemented as web components. You can also now use components in HTML pages. In addition, we’ve added a couple of new components:

  • The Gesture component - Lets you use touch and mouse tracking, taps, clicks and other mouse and touch gestures.
  • Tap to Call - Lets the user tap to initiate a phone call to a phone number that you specify.

CodeMirror3 Integration

Code view now uses CodeMirror3

Three issues have been fixed since version 1.1.0.0723
