To be clear about the modificators you get to use in IX2:
CSS Transform functions are only the one in red.
Everything in green is CSS property that’s not a Transform
Transform vs. CSS property is important to understand
When a CSS property such as size or show (display) changes, the flow of elements, on the whole page, is affected. If a 1000px height element suddenly changes to 100px height, the rest of the page goes up to fill the space left. HTML hates void.
But when a Transform function is applied to an element, the flow doesn’t change a pixel. HTML just doesn’t know that a change has been made, don’t see void, don’t change anything below or over. If a 1000px height element is changed with Transform Scale to a 100px height element (using 0,1 value for scale on Y), the est of the page don’t change, there’s a gap of 900px on the page, around, over or under the element depending on its center settings. (here we go with the center).
Transform is cool to animate objects because they won’t make a mess with the page when changing shape and position. But using CSS properties that change shape is also extremely powerful because it has an effect on the flow of elements in the page. (think when you fold and unfold a div on a page, and if you want the rest of the content of the page to go along the animation).
(Just FYI BG color, Border color and Text colors are the new actions of IX2)
