Hey Webflowers! Just writing to let you know we’ll moving the assets panel to the left sidebar soon. This is purely an organizational decision and no changes will be made to the asset manager itself (keyboard shortcuts are still intact).
Why move it?
We have a ton of great features coming in 2017 and we need to shuffle some panels around in the Designer to accommodate them. Moving symbols and assets to the left panel is an early step toward getting these new features in place.
In addition to freeing up some room in the right sidebar, placing symbols and assets in the left sidebar makes more organizational sense. It’s always felt a little strange that some things are added from the left sidebar, while other things are added from the right. With this update, all of our additive actions will be in one place:
- Add Element
- Add Symbol
- Add Page
- Add Assets
Although it might take a little getting used to, the left panel will feel like the most natural place for your assets. We think you'll be excited about the interactive features we're working on for the right panel.
