Our latest update is here, bringing a host of new features to broaden what’s possible with Canvasflow. In this update there’s something for every publisher.

Twixl Hamburger Menu

(Also known as Sandwich, Pancake, Oreo or Hotdog Menu)… Twixl Publisher clients can now manipulate their Twixl Hamburger Menu from Canvasflow. Add Collection links, placeholder images, or web links for simpler user navigation.

You can access the Hamburger Menu from the top of the article manager of any Twixl Publisher publication.  You can learn more about the Hamburger Menu feature here.

We listened to your feedback and in response added a Full-Page Advert component, making it simple to insert full page ads into your apps.

This component is similar to an image component, with an extra property to increase control, fully explained in our Working with media components help document.

Full Width Images

We’ve added a new property to the Image component, ‘Force Full Width’, this property allows you to force an image to resize to fit the width of the canvas, regardless of it’s raw dimensions.

This feature is especially useful for when you need an image to fit the width of the canvas but it’s native size is slightly too small. This enables you to use an image without having to manually resize or source an alternative.
