Divi Text Shadow Update

Text shadows just got very easy to apply within Divi, which mean no more custom css to be able to make your text legible on various backgrounds! Use the presets to add text shadows and customize to your needs.

Divi version 3.0.85 ( updated 10-26-2017 )

– Added new text shadow options to all modules

Divi Font Options Update

This font update has taken us from the 91 Divi fonts to over 800, and you can upload your own too. Not only do we have a larger choice of fonts available we can now also have a lot more control over how these fonts are displayed and managed. The only thing missing (and coming soon apparently) is the ability to use the customizer to set these new font options at a global level which will be a huge help.

Divi Box Shadow Update

The box shadow has become a popular customization within the Divi community with plenty of Divi layouts and child themes incorporating the look into their design. This Divi feature update allows you to quickly and easily add a box shadow effect to any section, row or modules. You can use the pre-defined shadows with the click of a button and/or customize the shadow with various controls. No more css required for your box shadows (unless you also want hover effects) required.

Divi Visual Builder Update

I am a big fan of the visual builder and have been using it almost exclusively for a while now and these new updates only make it better. The default way we have been working with the VB has been updated to fix those annoying quirks that meant the controls were getting hidden or disappearing and has also added 2 new ways to interact with the content.  The new click mode and grid mode offer more options so you can work with the visual builder just the way you like, when you like.
