Style updates 1.5.18 & 2.0.4 Style Updates

Hello everyone, we're pushing our 1.5.18 & 2.0.4 updates out today. Once you receive the email you'll be able to download it immediately with an active license via your license area.

Prior to upgrading, you must be on the latest version for your version, 1.5.18 for the 1.5.18 style update and 2.0.4 for the entire 2.0.4 style update.

As always backup your current styles before importing the new version. Export your current:
  • XenBase (only applies to XF 1.x products)
  • Parent Style (this would be the purchased style such as Core, Flat Awesome + ect)
  • Your child style with your edits

To upgrade the style check out our guide here:
For XF2 we're still writing the documentation for upgrading, but you can use the above steps just skip steps 3 & 4.

For XF2 upgrades you'll need to upload the new included qtip folder found in your download inside your style folder.

Minor bug fixes

Just a heads up... I'm turning off the default email notifications for your license updates. We're updating every single product and some twice, the email system isn't the best on XF so we'll send out a global email once they're done.
So I just realized there was a bug with the toggle bit... if you downloaded the update before the time of this post:

Go to: Style Properties -> Page Setup, remove the alternate width.
Also: Style Properties -> Sidebar -> Sidebar Collapse, disable this too.

I've uploaded a new zip with those features disabled out of the box while I investigate today. Sorry for the inconvenience.
