What’s New: October 30, 2018

New Features

  • Automatic Paragraph Stencils:
    • If you use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl/Cmd + V to paste pure text directly onto the page – either from within the app or from an external source – Moqups will automatically paste the copied text in a new Paragraph stencil.
  • Set as Default Style in Context Menu:
    • Now you can style an Object (or Connector), and then use the right-click Context Menu to set that customization as the Default Style for subsequent objects; it does not affect the style of objects that you’ve already added to the page. This makes it easy to customize a string of objects and/or connectors, and then quickly jump to a new default style, and so on.

Improvements

  • To help our Support Team effectively address your issue, you can now attach relevant files to the Contact Support form.
  • Custom Handles for the Process stencil now allow you to round the corners (adjust the border radius).
  • Snapping now works to the center of objects as well as to their edges, making it quicker and easier to align objects in staggered formations; this is especially useful with diagrams and flowcharts.
  • In Page Settings, you can now adjust the page size using numerical input with Expressions; numerical inputs also work in the Format Panel, letting you quickly adjust any object’s size, position and rotation.
  • The Fit page to content feature (accessed through the right-click Context Menu) now gives you the option of setting the spacing (padding) around your content.
  • Connectors remain attached to their objects, and in their correct positions, when you apply an Align operation to those objects (either from the right-click Context Menu or by using the buttons at the top of the Format Panel).

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused random errors when duplicating a selection of objects that included connectors.

New Features

Improvements

  • Snapping now prioritizes:
    • Distance snap over Object snap.
    • Snap to page’s Center/Edge over snap to Object.
  • You can now drag and resize a page ‘through’ an object ( i.e. when an object sits in front of the page-resize handles).
  • The Format Panel now displays the number of objects in a selection; this makes it easy to quickly check your selection before applying any style changes.
  • We’ve improved the performance of both the Image and Template Libraries.
  • The Dashboard is now faster when loading projects or switching teams.
  • Image uploads are quicker, both by drag & drop and by file.
  • When you use the Diagram Extenders to add new flowchart stencils to your diagram, the page automatically scrolls to the end of that flow.
  • Improved the behavior of Object Groups, both on the page, and in the Outline Panel.
  • The Grid stencil now has cell-padding options (in the Grid Style section of the Format Panel).
  • Google Web Fonts have been updated.

Bug Fixes

  • Previously, if you had an item selected in Templates Library, and then clicked the ‘Create a new folder’ button, the selected item was accidentally nested within the newly created folder.
  • Diagram Connectors are now displayed correctly in both Template Thumbnails and Export to HTML.
  • Images dragged and dropped onto the page – from outside the app – are no longer automatically added to the Image Library; this helps you avoid unwanted clutter in the library.
  • Fixed several issues with the Smart Connect and Replace Stencil features.
  • Fixed a bug that canceled image uploads if the user used drag-&-drop, and then switched pages before the upload was complete.
  • Previously, if you expanded a folder (or a series of nested pages) in the Pages Panel, that action accidentally expanded all the folders and nested pages within that Page Tree.
  • Using Shift + Clicking on the Zoom Icon automatically zooms in or out to fit the page within the Editor (or Viewer) window; that zoom now also correctly centers the page.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Editor to get stuck in Read Mode if you exited Preview while using the grab cursor (hand) to pan the page.
  • Removed object highlights when using the touchpad zoom in Preview mode.
