Version 0.11 Updates: Text Position
2 years ago
Vectr’s‘s Version 0.11 shipped today ;)
We’ve been working very hard on some substantial improvements to the text editing experience, and have also made about 20 addittional bugfixes/improvements over the past two weeks.
Where’s 0.10? You might’ve noticed a lack of blog post for version 0.10, which shipped a few weeks ago. It was lunar new year here in Taiwan, so most of our team was taking some time off. Our last update was on Version 0.9 - we talked about some major bug fixes.
Text Editing in Previous Versions
In the past, when you tried to edit text in Vectr you surely noticed that the text would “jump” around when you edited it. In other words the text you were editing, and the actual text in your design after finishing your edits, would look different.
Editing text would look something like this:
The old text editing was quite annoying - but we’re happy to say that it’s now fixed ;)
Improved Text Editing in Version 0.11
If you edit text in Vectr 0.11, the text that you’re editing and the actual text of your design should now be identical!
It may seem simple, but the work involved in getting text consistent across any font family, single-line and multi-lines of text, rotated and transformed, etc. was quite tough. We’re happy to say that it now appears to be working very well, so we’re happy to bring you a much improved text editing experience with today’s new version.
Bugfixes + Upcoming Features
Aside from text editing, we’ve been hard at work creating the ability to use Vectr without any login requirement - we’ve also been re-writing pieces of our filesystem so that hopefully, soon, we’ll be able to offer a fully-offline desktop app ;)
We’ve gotten a new website half-finished (with documentation and tutorials!) which we hope to ship within the month as well.
We’ve got big things going on under the hood right now and are preparing for some major updates over the coming months! You can read all about our planned features and functions on our roadmap. As always, contact us if you have any feedback or suggestions for us!
