Chamfered Transitions

Sections Angle from BWD was an instant hit when it arrived on the RapidWeaver scene, yet there were some of us that almost instantly beleaguered Andrew with questions and problems. Now Andrew isn't one to be daunted by problems, quite the opposite – he thrives on a challenge – so he quietly retired to his study and got to work. The result is Bevel.

Bevel makes it simple to add angled transitions between RW stacks. It can be used with any theme and it will automatically pair with Sections Angle to square off angled sections. Whilst testing Bevel, I 'misused' it to create some amazing results and the Bevel demo page illustrates its versatility admirably.

Bevel begins its life on your RW page as a downward pointing triangle that can optionally contain a Dropzone (Add Content). Obviously, any added content will extend the length of the Bevel stack. However, drop Bevel below a stack with the same background colour and without further ado, you have a chamfered transition.Bevel

Stack settings.
Bevel may be set to Horizontal, or Vertical (Orientation), Down, or Up, Outward, or Inward. You may set the Angle and the Split (default 50%). Crop sets the height of the stack and the sensitivity of the Crop may be magnified (Crop Magnify).
Bevel may also have round corners. The corner settings Top Left, Right, Bottom Left, Right are individual for each half of the stack.
Render Adjust will allow you to compensate for any rounding problems that Safari may demonstrate. Adding 0.5, or 0.75 px should hide any gaps that Safari may display between two adjacent Bevel stacks.
Likewise, Split Adjust will compensate for any gap that may appear at low angles.

I won't deprive you the fun of looking at the BWD demo site by providing more examples here. Just be assured that if you need beveled stack sections, you'll be able to produce them with Bevel.

Bevel is donationware. Many hours of work went into perfecting it. Please don't forget to add the price of a coffee to Andrew's purse.
