Add animations using CC Libraries

New in this release of Adobe Muse CC

You can now place animations in your Adobe Muse websites using Creative Cloud Libraries. Previously, you were able to browse to your hard drive to select the animation. Now, in addition to this option, you can also drag the animation files from the CC Libraries panel into Adobe Muse Design view.

You can also share your animations and collaborate with other Creative Cloud users using CC Libraries. To know how to add and use animations using CC Libraries, see Add Animations from Animate CC.

Add Library items with breakpoints

Enhanced in this release of Adobe Muse CC

In the earlier versions of Adobe Muse, you could use Library items in your website by dragging the items into your layout. Now, when you place a Library item with breakpoints in your layout, the breakpoints are automatically added to the page.

You can use this feature to add multiple breakpoints with a single click. You can also use this feature to add a set of breakpoints across multiple Adobe Muse files.  

To add page elements with breakpoints, simply click the plus symbol next to the Library item, and drag the item into the Design panel. The breakpoints are automatically added to your page.
