Minor but important editor stuff

Post  wasi on Wed Dec 05, 2012 5:59 am

Hi

a few things I'd like to see in the editor:

  • Grid should maintain it's relative size, not absolute size when zooming. This is crucial to be able to work with the grid at all. A good grid system would allow you to work only in the editor. Right now it's hit and miss every time because you have no idea how bit that really grid is.
  • Grid size needs to show a numerical value. You can't transfer layout concepts if it's a rough slider. I'd suggest pixels, because that translates perfectly to your phone/tablet screen.
  • Zoom needs to show a value too. Again, you don't know what you're looking at unless you get a zoom value (and a reset to 1:1 button)

Thanks for the ideas!

I'll try to get these implemented in the next few days. I'll post a message here and in the 'News and Updates' section when they're implemented.

I'd like to support Wasi's requests. If I may add: it would be great if items could snap to grid.

Yeah, I forgot to add "snap to grid" and wasi's grid requests.

The 1:1 function probably won't get implemented because it would require the user to enter their device's physical size into the editor. For example, a resolution of 480x800 on some phones might be 2" x 4" and other other phones it could 1.5" x 4".

It's something I'll keep in mind though.
