Responsive spacing system
A new topic about responsive spacing explains how responsive padding and style sheet classes are used to control padding between elements that are common to all SAP Fiori interfaces.
Updated guidelines for UI elements
We’ve also updated the guidelines for numerous UI elements. Here’s a selection of new features you might find useful.
Indicator for “opened” item
You can now enable a “navigated” indicator for tables and lists to mark the item that was last opened. This is typically required for master-detail scenarios, and is supported for both tables and lists.
