Video Demonstration

For Master Layout samples, please contact us directly via the email. The master layout samples which were earlier downloaded directly via the server API has now been disabled temporarily due to some security restriction on my server. This feature will be added built-in to the extension in the next version 5+ (to be released in Jan 2021) and thereby no connection request from your server to my server will be required.
