[Suggestion] Alignment Grid in Spread Editor

Postby veryveryvery123 » Thu 01 Sep, 2016 10:59 am

May I suggest Alignment Grid to be added in the Spread Editor?

A bit like photoshop, when you grab an item lines around it extends, and magnets to other items for you to get a perfect alignment.

Is it possible in Orphalese? Thanks!

Hi veryvery,
Yes you can already do half of what you suggest. Look at the bottom left of the "Layout Area" and there is a small check box "Snap to Grid". By default this is off and as far as I'm aware at the moment you will need to turn it on each time you want the grid.

You can also use the Keyboard Arrows to get small increments.
When "Snap to Grid" is off, you get very small increments.
When "Snap to Grid" is on, it moves to the next line.
(with a larger Spread this can be quite slow to see the effect.....)

Regards
Greg

Hi again very very,
with regard to my comment above -
"with a larger Spread this can be quite slow to see the effect....."
you'll find that this issue has already been fixed by our "Programmer God" and the movements are pretty snappy, in the current version 10.0.3.3!
(If only all God's were as obliging or as fast!....)

Regards
Greg

Thanks for the tips Greg!
Although I envision extended lines can be helpful, Snap to Grid is okay for use.

cheers
