August is surely a hot month this year: Adobe Muse is getting some new features that will make many users very, very happy. I just love how this application is evolving into a really good tool for designers to create content for the web without having to get their hands dirty with coding and markup.
There are improvements in the following areas: a brand new Align Palette, the ability to upload assets (which users can then download), many improvements in code generation, a new Forms Widget to create contact forms, font improvements, FTP Upload, Adobe Edge integration, and much, much more...
Here's the scoop, taken from the Release Notes:
- We've added a new Align Palette, available from the Window menu, or by clicking on the new 'Align' control in the control strip.
- You can use the new Align features to align or distribute selected objects relative to each other, or to the page content area (which is the area from the bottom of the header to the top of the footer).
- You can now link to any external file (i.e. PDF, .zip file, .dmg or .exe) and add a hyperlink to it to enable users to download the file from your web site.
- All linked assets will be uploaded / exported along with the rest of the Adobe Muse site, in a new 'assets' folder.
