Using columns is a sure way in organizing your page and post content layouts. An array of configurable options gives you layout flexibility and new for Avada 5.9 is the ability to change column border-radius and add in a box shadow. These new features turn columns into a design asset that will change the way you design your sites.
New Options For
Flip Box Element functionality has been improved significantly. A new 3D flip effect, choose the direction and speed of the flip box movement and even decide if you want equal heights to be enabled or not. Besides the new functionality distinct design options have been built in that gives you the ability to set the background image for both the front and the back side of each flip box.
As is our tradition, the ThemeFusion team has included two stunning demos with your Avada 5.9 update, Avada Galerie and Avada Driving. Niche Avada demos that will give you a head start for client work and design inspiration.
AVADA MENU ENHANCEMENTS
It’s been a while since we delivered any visual enhancements to our Menu System so here they are in Avada 5.9.
We have included in the update two new Menu Highlight Options (Bottom Bar, a lovely little hover effect and active link effect that expands from bottom center to the full width of the item in a single, smooth transition. And the Color Only option, which shows nothing but the color accent on hover and active page, incredibly subtle and ideal for a vast array of design specifications).
We have also included a new transition for Mega Menus and Dropdowns in the form of Slide, expanding the choices from Fade and Slide transitions for expanded menus.
