The new Customizer interface is in beta!

We’re excited to release a huge new feature we’ve been working on: moving Design Palette controls from the Design tab to the WordPress Customizer. Click an item to edit it, and a custom panel with design options will empower you to take your editing to a whole new level.

While this feature is in beta you’ll need to enable it by clicking a checkbox in the Settings tab. You can opt-out of the Customizer beta if you’re having issues at any time. In a future release, all customizations will be implemented in the Customizer by default.

Support for the Academy Pro Genesis Child Theme

In addition to a whole new way to use Design Palette Pro, we’ve also committed ourselves to adding support for a backlog of StudioPress Genesis child themes. In Design Palette Pro version 1.5 we’re pleased to announce one of StudioPress’ top-selling themes.
