Every PageCloud object (as well as the page itself) has the ability to contain custom Javascript. You can add your own behaviors, interactions, animations and dynamic data injections from a CMS or database. PageCloud even links up the object reference for you and provides a stub script with event handlers to get you started. Dragging a JS file from your desktop to your page will upload and link the script automatically!  

If you make a change to a script, drag it in again to replace.

If you paste a <script> tag, it will automatically be added and linked up in the <head> - great for adding hosted libraries from Google CDN, like jQuery or others. PageCloud is a full front-end development environment. Objects can even reference each other and interact!

Feature index

With the world’s smoothest visual editing experience, PageCloud has many unique features that you may not discover during your free trial.

If you don't find something you're looking for, PageCloud gives you the ability to manipulate the source code to do things we don’t offer out of the box.

Take a look below at a more detailed list of what’s included:

PageCloud Elements

PageCloud Headers and Footers allow you to maintain a consistent design across all your pages. Make a change on one page. Watch it replicated across your entire site.

Site-wide navigation, headers, and footers

Dedicated pixel perfect mobile mode

Don't worry about multiple break points and the challenges of responsive websites.

Simply design your desktop/tablet layout with pixel-perfect accuracy, and then completely customize it for mobile phones.

When signed in to PageCloud, you will notice a handy Edit Button when navigating your site. Want to make a change? Click Edit to jump into the WYSIWYG editor. No more abstract back-end logins!

Quick spot edits

Layering, blending, and compositing

PageCloud gives you the ability to create stunning effects by layering images and shapes on top of one another. ‍‍With PageCloud, you get full control of the layer position, opacity, color, and more.

You can create groups with two or more selected objects. Once your content is grouped, it will be treated as a single object for functions like dragging, resizing, or duplicating. Double-click inside any group to edit your sub-layers.

Grouped objects

Locked objects

Use the lock feature on any PageCloud object so it can't be edited or moved out of place. Locking down backgrounds or sections can come in handy when working on a page.

Hide any of the content you don't want your visitors to see. Hiding can be done on mobile or desktop to create a more customized experience.

Hidden objects

Linked objects

PageCloud objects can be linked in multiple ways: links off-site, anchors on-page, or linked scripts. You can even drag in or paste a link onto a PageCloud object by holding SHIFT to instantly create a hyperlink.

Use the Editing Menu or some handy PageCloud shortcuts to quickly align or distribute your content. Evenly spreading out icons, links, or titles has never been faster.

Alignment and distribution

Automatic guides

With PageCloud, you are never restricted to a grid or a rigid template. To help create symmetry, alignment, and balance in your design, PageCloud offers automatic alignment guides that turn on as you move an object around your page. Use the CTRL or CMD shortcut to temporarily turn the guides off during a drag if they get in your way.

With PageCloud, you can rotate any object on your page. This is a simple effect that can create a unique, eye-catching look for your site.

Object rotation

Smart paste

Copy and paste an object, then,‍‍ position it to your desired location. Once this is done, you can paste again to see PageCloud automatically recreate the alignment and spacing of the original objects.

Copy any color code (hex, RGB, HSL, etc.) to your clipboard and paste it onto one or more PageCloud object, including text, shapes, SVGs, and more!

Paste colors

Paste text

Paste text directly from other applications or web pages to create a text object. If the font is recognized, it will even be retained and added to your font selection. Basic rich text formatting will be preserved.

PageCloud automatically creates color swatches from the most-used colors on your page. This helps you design faster and keep your color choices consistent.

Automatic color swatches


Use the Squeegee tool (located on the top of any selected object) to help move your content up or down the page. All content below the Squeegee line will move while preserving relative positioning.

For precision work, use the arrow keys to move selected objects one pixel at a time. Hold down SHIFT to move the object 10 pixels at a time.

Nudging objects

Full-width objects

Extend images, colors, and videos to the edges of your browser window using the full-width toggle in the Editing Menu.

Dragging a file, such as a PDF, onto your page will automatically create a download button that you can style in any way you choose. Replace the file by dropping a new one over the button while holding SHIFT.

Download button

Exact object sizing

You can precisely specify the height and width of one or more objects using the size and position tab found in the Editing Menu.

PageCloud Themes

PageCloud offers a collection of professionally designed themes to help you get started. Unlike rigid templates offered by some website builders, PageCloud Themes can be modified in any way you want!

PageCloud offers full support for SVGs (vector files). This file format loads quickly at any size and can be customized using the Editing Menu.

Styled shapes and SVG icons

PageCloud's text editor has automatic spell checking built in.

Spell checker

Rich text formatting

With PageCloud, you can customize your text in seemingly endless ways: from the basics like font size, bolding, bulleted lists, heading tags, alignment, and indenting to the more refined edits, such as custom fonts, line height, character spacing, font weights, special characters, and raw HTML source.

The Side Panel is loaded with prebuilt elements to help you build faster: icons, buttons, shapes, forms, navigation, and more! Simply drag the elements onto your page and style them in any way you choose.

The web has always struggled with cross-browser layout incompatibilities.

PageCloud takes care of these inconsistencies, so you can be sure what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) on all browsers.

WYSIWYG across all browsers

Don’t worry about making mistakes. Like most desktop apps, undo and redo are always available. You can undo as many times as you need to while still in the same editing session.


Select one or more objects and use the Editing Menu to change colors, borders, shadows, and nearly every other aspect of the objects on your pages.

The Editing Menu

Operating system integrated clipboard

Unlike other website platforms, PageCloud integrates with your clipboard to copy over the most popular file types - even from your desktop apps!

Connect your domain through our free Cloudflare partnership to benefit from SSL protection and faster load times.

SSL support built in

Custom CSS

While PageCloud’s visual editor should give you all the visual styling properties you could ever need, there may be advanced scenarios where injecting custom CSS is required. You can use the <head> to write your own custom CSS (style) block, or modify the style attribute of any object using the web inspector, or even link in full CSS files by dragging them in from your desktop.

When building multiple sites or pages, you may find yourself repeating certain actions such as arrangements of objects, adding scripts, applying properties, connecting to databases, etc. PageCloud allows you to package custom automation JavaScript into PageCloud Action files. An Action file can then later be dragged back onto a page to run the automation script. The action even goes onto the Undo stack, so you can “un-run” actions just as if you performed the action manually.

Actions, macros, and automation

PageCloud Widgets

You may find yourself creating parts of pages that you like to reuse across many pages or sites. ‍‍Just copy and paste them into a text file, and save them as a PageCloud Widget file (name.widget.html).

You can collect a library of PageCloud Widget files and drag them onto pages any time you'd like to “recreate” those widgets.

PageCloud is the only visual web designer in the world that lets you open the browser’s web inspector (DOM) and manipulate your page HTML directly. When you save your page, those DOM changes are saved too. The browser and web inspector themselves are now part of your toolkit for fine-grained code control over your pages.  

Open up the CSS inspector and directly apply custom CSS to the nodes in your DOM. Those changes are valid and saved too. You can even open the Javascript console and type JavaScript or jQuery commands to operate on your page.  

Any means by which you can manipulate the DOM is fair game. This is because PageCloud isn’t a “code generator”. It is a “DOM manipulator”, which preserves any bits of DOM you add or modify.

DOM inspector support

Next generation architecture

Most CMSs and web designers generate page code after running through a database, compiler, and various templates with each page load. PageCloud converts your pages into flat HTML files and caches them immediately on a CDN.  

No databases, app servers, or compilation, and fewer network requests to load your pages. This means you are always working with the “theoretical maximum” page load performance simply by being on PageCloud’s unique architecture.
