This addon gives back functionality that was lost from 5.6.
Download it, use it, love it!
Absolutely Superb! Makes the admin UI so much easier to use.
As a concrete5 web developer, we think this should be a default add-on for every concrete5 web site. It makes the editing UI far more intuitive and supporting customers is much easier as they can see at a glance what is editable and what is not.
If I could give it 6 stars... I would!
Nice improvement to the interface with a lot of options, useful for everyone!
For my personal use, i have deactivated the option to 'always' show area names, block outlines and area outlines, because with all these options enabled, for my taste, the interface gets a bit flooded with lines of all kinds, which actually tends to become counterproductive. Even 'always' showing the labels of areas is not what i'm personally using, for the same reason, but this is certainly just a matter of taste.
With most of the other options enabled, i'm enjoying a clean and nicely structured interface, that perfectly synergizes with the latest core interface improvement of showing the names of areas when a block is dragged over them (C5 22.214.171.124).
It's great to have so many options for many individual tastes and purposes.
Amazingly, this add-on is free, nevertheless i got kind support from MrKDilkington.
Clearer, easier, faster
Like other reviewers, having been using this for a while I can't see myself ever working on a 5.7 without it.
Restores the Status Quo
This addon effectively removes those barriers at a stroke. The interface elements are now much more easy to read and the restoration of the dotted borders means that the user doesn't have to wiggle the mouse about in order see where the editable areas are. The result is that they're much less confused, and I get less phone calls.
Even better, it's free! For my money(!) it could do with being part of the core. I'm retrofitting/installing it as standard on all the 5.7 sites I build as a subcontractor.
A great usability enhancer
MrKDilkington has taken great care as to add enhancements that do truly help the editing experience, without making it complex to configure.
I'll be honest and say now that I've seen this in action I really wish these options were in the core! (I'm sure he wouldn't mind them being included too!)
Excellent Add-On - Recommended
Well done MrKDilkington.
