The latest release of element14 Community (which went live today!) includes a huge number of improvements to the way we display products promoted in our stores. Traditionally, we have put links on the page that open a new window on our store site which shows the product detail. Now you'll be able to click & see a pop-up a product detail pane with the product image, pricing, availability, and description. The update will increase your browsing speed and create less clutter on your desktop during your research.
Multiple products are now presented in a nice navigable list. This makes it really easy to display set of parts for a project & either add them to the Drawer, or on the store.
You'll find the new product detail pop-up panels used across the Community site. And we've also made it even easier for publishers to insert product links into their content, which means it's simple to use this feature in documents, discussions, Road Tests, and Design Elements.
