The Usual Problem with Visual Builders
If you have experience with any of the available visual site builders in the market, you know that there is much room to improve on their user interface. Cluttered UI controls layouts result in a longer learning curve and create frustration. Elements are also hard to access which makes designing and editing take too much effort and time.
In this article, we will introduce you to EasyPass. It is one of the major features that you should look out for in Visual Builder that provides a fresh take on UI controls and removes the guesswork in selecting elements you want to customize and resize on the page.
EasyPass: A New Approach to Intuitive Visual Builder
Let’s look at EasyPass main features to see why and how they make ShortPoint Visual Builder special.
Easily identify design elements on the page
EasyPass displays identifying labels and color highlights for each design element that is present on your SharePoint page making it effortless to know which type of element is used in your content. Simply hover over specific design elements on your SharePoint page while in edit mode to see the labels. Select the label of the element you wish to customize and apply changes straight away.

Often, you will have a complex combination of design elements on your page. One design element may be nested in a few other design elements. When editing your page, determining the right part to modify may prove difficult and time-consuming.
With EasyPass, all you need to do is hover over any of the child elements to show its parent elements defining its structure. If you want to edit one of the nested elements in the structure, just click on the label and proceed with the design you wish to achieve.
Modify element spaces directly in focus mode
Selecting the design element labels brings you to the EasyPass focus mode. Just drag the outer lines of the design element to adjust its paddings and margins. You no longer have to toggle back and forth between the settings window and the preview of your page to get the right amount of space you need for your site layout.
