Karelia Software Releases Sandvox 2.2

New Map Object, Bullet Lists Among the Improvements to Make Building a Website Easier than Ever

Alameda, Calif. - Nov. 1, 2011 - Karelia Software today released Sandvox 2.2, an update to its award-winning website building software for the Mac, now with a new Map object, powered by Google, a new Text Inspector for handling bulleted and numbered lists, and much more.

The new Map object makes adding a map as easy as selecting the object and entering the location address in the Object Inspector. A new Text Inspector makes it simple to format a list either using numbers or bullets. Version 2.2 also introduces new Strikethrough formatting, plus the ability to customize the writing direction as 'left to right' or as 'right to left' for non-Roman languages.

Advanced users who work with Raw HTML objects can now use a built-in Tidy HTML function and access a Develop menu. Sandvox 2.2 offers improved SFTP and WebDAV publishing, enhanced media handling tools, and other refinements and fixes to reported issues in this award-winning website building application.

Websites created using Sandvox 2 automatically support the latest HTML5 web standard. Sandvox 2 introduced a completely new architecture and new editing engine, which allows customers to mix and match web page content "objects" in a much more naturally expressive and creative way.

Sandvox 2 also introduced a new design chooser and a much more powerful Inspector that makes it easy to selectively adjust page layout, modify objects, and apply modern page features. Sandvox 2 includes the latest version of the Karelia iMedia Browser, an open source contribution which is now a staple in many popular Mac apps.

For the power user, a new Raw HTML object handles direct placement, including live resizing, of any HTML, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP or other inserted web code, such as popular embed codes provided by other sites. New plug-ins provide support for Facebook and Twitter. In addition, a plug-in API is now available for third-party developers.
