Our Focus Now
We are now working to improve the performance in dynamic ShortPoints.
When you connect ShortPoint design elements to SharePoint list, it will take some time to load the content in the page. There will be no problem when you have one or two, but you will not like it much when you build a fully dynamic page.
We invented new technology for this, and we called it: ShortPoint Dynamic Content Client Caching (DC3). You will notice a massive difference when we release it.
#1 New Header and Menu Styles
This will include Mega Menu, 4 new header styles, floating headers and more
#2 New ShortPoints
Content Boxes, Responsive Image, Text ShortPoint, Icon Boxes, Call to actions and new button styles
#3 Filter Toolbar
Add filter toolbar to the top of any connected ShortPoint to let the users filter the items on the pages.
This is the list of known and issues we are still working on.
Why are we listing issues?
First of all, all issues here are very minor, and most of them rarely happen while designing only.
We hate this page so much. We will not have good rest until we solve everything here, and delete this page. This is the list of issues we are working on. We believe we have to publish all known issues with our masterpiece to our awesome community.
Issues you might face while designing Only
You should not face any issue while designing if you use all browsers, except IE11 and Firefox.
No Issues in these browsers
