New insert panel, simpler drag/drop layouts, table component
New insert panel
The insertion menu—i.e. our big blue add button—is where all building starts. And now it has an upgrade to make it easier and more comfortable to browse and search:
Everything is now organized into top-level categories that you can easily see and click into.
The menu now directly includes not only all the built-in elements and your project components, but also all layout templates and items from the component store. The component store is now also organized clearly into different categories.
Built-in elements are now presented visually as well, and overall the experience is geared to be more inviting to new users.
And you still get all the keyboard-friendly type-ahead search experience you’re used to from the original insertion menu as well.

Automatic stacked layout in drag-and-drop
You can now drag and drop elements next to each other without needing to first create stacks.
For instance, if you have a vertical stack of items, you can simply drag to the left or right of an item to stack things horizontally (and we’ll create a horizontal stack as needed).
Ant Table component
New in the Plasmic component store is an advanced table component that you can drag and drop into your projects, which allows for customizing a dynamic set of tabs and accepting arbitrary collections of keyed objects. This can be found under the Ant design system package.
