The old text widgets use to be a larger size than html widgets and stuff. Now that the text widgets have been changed into smaller widgets, when adding empty spaces throughout the page, it's more difficult to distinguish the new text widgets with html widgets. And something was changed with the way you insert widgets, it's different and unpleasant to work with.

Hmm.... I would have to agree with you that the text widgets have been changed. But this change didn't come with the recent Yola update, this happened so long ago... that I'm use to it.

If you love creating your site, than I'm sure these little changes are nothing you can't handle.

One way to distinguish between the two widgets is the HTML widget box will have an "edit" button on the left-hand corner.



Perhaps a bigger distinction is needed. Maybe one idea is to have the text bar one color and the HTML bar another color?

Instead of complaining and again posting in a negative fashion, you could consider trying to frame your wishes in a more positive manner by offering ideas of how improvements can be made. Yola reps are always willing to listen.

yes, I'm aware of how to distinguish them... but when you have 50 widgets on a page and trying to insert other widgets in between them, it's more time consuming to have to pay attention to the edit button rather than just glancing at the size of the widget.

that's a good idea, let's change the color of the widgets?

Yola should have a color scale for the widgets. When you click on a color, like red for example... the colors white, pink, red, and dark red can be used... the lighter one (white) will be the text widget (top of the content sidebar) and the darker (dark red) will be the file widget (bottom of the content bar)
