๐Ÿ› Fixes and general improvements

  • FIX: An issue when adding a text node, beginning text editing, removing the text, and ending text editing would leave the editor in a โ€œstuckโ€ state that has been fixed.

  • FIX: The issue with newly added elements being placed below existing content in the canvas has been fixed.

  • FIX: An issue for text components that would result in the text component not automatically increasing in height as the user is typing has been fixed.

  • FIX: An issue with snapping guidelines being present until reload has been fixed.

  • FIX: The issue that affected components being stuck to the cursor was fixed.

  • IMPROVED: Undo/redo functionality has been been made compatible with copy-paste functionality, meaning your copy/pasting actions can now be 'undone'.
    IMPROVED: Performance optimizations for the project editor were implemented.

  • IMPROVED: The precision of the cursor in the project editor has been improved.

Grouping components

Itโ€™s now possible to select components and group them together, like you might know it from Keynote, Figma, and other visual editors.

This is done by either right-clicking and using the โ€œGroupโ€ or โ€œUngroupโ€ menu options or through keyboard shortcuts cmd+g or cmd+shift+g.

๐Ÿš€ Sticky components

Itโ€™s now possible to toggle a โ€œStick while scrollingโ€-option on/off for your components in the right-side options bar. This option will make components stick to the top or bottom of the screen when the user scrolls in 'Preview' mode, allowing for fixed headers, footers, and more!

Notice of the top and bottom elements stay fixed when you scroll! ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿš€ Simulated touch scrolling

Simulated touch scrolling in 'Preview' is now back after being fixed and has been released! This allows you to scroll in the 'Preview' mode the way you would scroll on a real physical device (mouse down, move to scroll, mouse up).

๐Ÿš€ User-defined project templates

Weโ€™ve introduced a new way to reuse your projects. You can now mark any project as a template, which will make it appear in a new โ€œMy templatesโ€ tab in the project creation flow, allowing quick and easy re-use.

๐Ÿš€ Updating text style while editing

Itโ€™s now possible to update text styling options while editing the text, which makes the text's styling significantly easier ๐Ÿ‘

That's all for this week!
