Improvements to custom sizing

Published May 27, 2024

Several updates have been made to improve the existing custom size feature found on the advanced model customiser type.

These updates aim to resolve the numerous fustrations and complexities alot of merchants and customers had with our advanced model and the way sign sizes are calculated and choosen.

Custom Sizing Enter A Size

What’s changed?

A new user interface that lets your customers enter in their desired width or height of the sign. The sign will then be scaled to fit the text and fonts within the given dimensions. Several new features in the admin have been added to reduce confusion for setting up sizing in a advanced model.

What does this solve?

One of the biggest questions we had with our advanced model is “Why does the size change when adding text or additional fonts to my sign?” By allowing customers to enter in their desired width or height, the sign will be scaled to fit the text and fonts within the given dimensions. This will help reduce confusion and frustration for customers when creating their signs.

Can signs now be created with characters that are smaller then the minimum physically producable dimensions?

A check has been added to ensure no character is smaller then the “Minimum Height” of lowercase and uppercase characters that you set per font. If a character is smaller in the minimum height value, a modal will apprear and prevent the customer from proceeding.

Moving forward

We believe all existing customisers on the advanced model should use “Custom sizing” and may even benefit from removing all their existing multiplier option as illustrated by this demo. As its simpler and more user friendly for customers to use.
