  • Align, group copy/paste, tabs, zoom

    Hi,

    The Workshop4 environment is not too bad but is lacking some basic tools which are:

    Alignment tools: It would be nice to position any number of objects/buttons and be able


    Copy/Paste: The ability to lasso a group of objects and then move/copy/delete them as a group

    Object Selection: An object should be selected on mouseDown and not mouseUp. It means as a user you have to click on it first before the red bounding rectangle is displayed

    Tabs: At the top of the design form could be please have a tab for each screen that's being designed? With many, many screens it's tedious to select them from the form drop-down list

    Zoom: Could we also please have a zoom function so we can get in close on the screen layout.

    I think these would be fairly easy to code and make the design process a lot more efficient.

    Thanks!!

    Hi, thanks for the suggestions, most are on the to do list already, unfortunately they are not all that easy to code, at least they don't seem to be to us.

    The way you've described this I can't see what this would 'add', as you have to release the mouse before you can do anything anyway. Do you mean the ability to move an object without clicling and then dragging?

    Since you appear to be using a small screen, wouldn't the current form drop down actually be easier to navigate than a form tab, that is probably going to end up wrapping around?

    Are you aware of the View, Snapshot (that can be zoomed)? We have 'zoom out' on our list of things to do, so Zoom In could be done at the same time, as the 'odd bits' associated with both are the same.

      Hi Mark,

      ​Clicking and dragging is easier when you simply click down and move the mouse.

      At the moment you have to click down and release the mouse button, then click down again and drag. As you know this is how the standard Windows environment works.

      Nice software by the way and I can only see it getting better.
