Updates1.2.0 (27 February 2020):
- Enabled the “Text” mode, alongside the default “Visual” mode, for the content editor of windows.
- Fixed an issue that was causing the window content to not show on multiple lines properly.
- Fixed a bug that was causing a custom share service not to be selected properly.
- On the “Main” page, added a new metabox called “Share”, with 2 new settings: “Custom URL” and “Custom title”. These allow a custom page URL and/or a custom page title to be specified and used in the share window instead of the current page URL and current page title, in case where this functionality is needed.
