You might have heard that our background is in user experience design and usability. We’ve spent years improving other companies products and damn… we love it.

We’re obsessed with perfect experience and perfect products.

No wonder that we started improvement of UXPin with classic usability study.

Oh, we’ve learned a lot about our own mistakes. Now is the time to fix them!

The feature that most of you have problem with is text editing. Rushing to launch UXPin we’ve used ready-to-use text editor (CKEdit). Unfortunately it never worked well with our system. It crushed from time to time. Overall experience was strange, as text editing was all done in modal box not „in place”. We couldn’t stand it so we just designed and coded it right from the beginning.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to new awesome UXPin text-editing.

New text-editor:

  • lets you edit text in place
  • is convenient and reliable
  • takes a good use of shortcuts

The bad news is the style of text created with old editor will be reset while editing. Don’t worry though ctrl(cmd)+z will work and you’ll be warned just before editing. Apologizes for inconvenience. It’s all for the best.

What’s your judgment folks? Hope it will improve your UXPin experience.
