For some time now I've been developing a theme editing suite for CubeCart V5. One component of this suite is the "Visual Editor". If you've used Firebug or Webkit's Web Inspector, you'll find the concept most familiar. The project sprouted out of being in constant receipt of support tickets asking how to change various colors, dimensions, fonts etc. We hope that the Visual Editor will ultimately make experimenting with various basic CSS properties a quick and painless process. There might be still some way to go yet, but the essentials have now been implemented. The Visual Editor is no replacement for a good text/code editor. It is certainly not designed for producing complete stylesheets. It's primary function is to provide a simple interface for tweaking a few properties here and there.
We need people to beta test the "Visual Editor". You will need a working copy of CubeCart V5 RC1 or later. The target demographic is those with little to moderate experience with CSS (though all are welcome). The prerelease can be freely downloaded through http://www.shopdev.co.uk/news/visual-theme-editor-alpha.php. Note that two small changes are required during installation at this time. These should not be necessary when CubeCart V5 is finally released. This prerelease will expire in one month and is not suitable for deployment to production sites.
