Usability update to components

We’ve heard your feedback and made it easier for you to modify components (and every instance of a component) without making unwanted changes.

Following the launch of components at Webflow Conf last year, we've been listening and incorporating feedback from the community on ways to improve the feature. That’s why we’re reverting back to a previous behavior to edit components on the canvas that - per your feedback - is smoother and more intuitive. 

Now it's even easier to update your components without making unwanted modifications.
Now it's even easier to update your components without making unwanted modifications.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new:

  • Double click to edit the main component. Double-clicking anywhere on a component that is not connected to a property will now (once again) edit the main component. 
  • Edit component properties on canvas. You can still select elements that can be customized via component properties, and edit them right on the canvas. 
  • Improved labeling. We’ve also added clearer labeling to let you know whether you’re editing a component or one of its instances.
  • Easier menu navigation. Finally, we’ve made the menus for editing components and properties easier to navigate.
