I’ve searched all brics’ documents, watched videos, and, generally, spent WAY too much time trying to figure out how to open the Brics’ panel. It seems quite an oversight that the Keypress 'd" feature isn’t mentioned anywhere that I can find! Of course, I looked first in the "Brics Basics"section of the documents. I even tried all kinds of shortcut keys in hopes of stumbling onto the correct sequence. All this time wasted when I could have been learning the software.
The only reason that I ever figured out what was going on was that @Ric had the same problem and he mentioned it in the forum. This isn’t the most user friendly way of helping someone new to Blocs.
Please consider adding something like the addition I’ve made below to the first sentence in "Brics Basics:
Brics are individual user interface elements that we use in order to make up our web page design. Images, buttons, icons, headers and many others are all classed as Brics within the Blocs application. Brics can be accessed by using the lower case letter “d” keypress. The “esc” key will subsequently hide the brics popup.
All I can say is, “Sheesh!”
Thanks for considering this on behalf of new users like me.
