If you've been using our website builder software to build your website online, you'll no doubt have seen how powerful and easy to use our website builder is. We've worked really hard at making sure that the website builder interface stays out of your way and unanimously our users are thrilled with the results. Literally any element on the page can be moved anywhere, just by clicking on the element, holding the mouse button down and "dragging" the element where you want. Need to make an element taller or wider? Click on the element so you get the small white scale handles around it, and drag one of the handles in any direction. Want to delete an element you no longer need on the page? Click on the green menu icon on the top left corner of the element in question and click the "Delete" button. Page is ready for your public to view? Click the "Publish" button located prominently at the top of the website builder interface.
But using your mouse can get a little awkward sometimes, especially if you need to move an element to a very precise location on the screen. Wouldn't it be nice if you could move or resize an element pixel by pixel, or delete an element from the page with a single click? Once again, SiteGIDGET has the solution: your keyboard.
These keyboard controls are specific to working inside the website builder software interface. You'll need to open a page ("Page Mode") or open a template ("Template Mode") to launch the website builder on that page.
The SiteGIDGET online website builder software supports many functions using the keyboard alone. They come in two classes: some functions only work if you click on an element first, and some functions work whether there's an active element or not.
To select an element, move your mouse over it. If the element highlights with a colored border around it, this element is editable on the page you have open inside the website builder software interface. When you click on a highlighted element it will "glow" with a green or red border around it. Green bordered elements can be edited using the controls available in the website builder; red bordered ones are "locked" and will need to be unlocked first by clicking on the green menu icon at the top left of the element and clicking on the "Unlock Element" button in the menu dialog that pops up. Remember, if you've clicked anywhere else on the page, including the floating dialog at the right of the page, you'll need to click on a selectable element first to be able to use the controls from the below list:
Currently there's only one keyboard control you can use globally on the page:
