We’ve been hard at work over the last forthnight adding some great new features to Creately – Online Diagramming and Design. We hope you enjoy this release as much as we did getting it out to you.
- A brand new Open & Create Diagrams Dialog
Our original dialog was fine for new users but we found it got harder to use as your collection of diagrams grew. We also found there was no way to organise and find our Easy Start templates that our new users love and are great to quickly get started with UML, UI Mockup, Education, Flowcharts and Business diagrams. Here’s a screenshot of what you’ll see when you next login to Creately.
- International Keyboard and Character Support
We’re very happy to announce that we now support all international keyboards and character sets. This was one of the most requested feature after our last release and we’re proud to be able to deliver what our users want. Watch this space for more internationalisation support coming your way in upcoming releases. And to all our users across the globe, we’d love to know if this fix works for you. Drop us a mail – support [at] creately.com if you have any trouble.
- Great new Open Source Fonts
Another heavily requested feature was to include more fonts in Creately to create better looking diagrams. We heard you and thanks to the great work by the people at the Open Font Library, we’re happy to announce support for some fantastic open source fonts. If you’d like to see more fonts included in Creately – let us know!
- Scaling Issues with Creately objects
This is another fix many users requested. Now we’ve sorted out the scaling issues with our SVG based Smart Objects, so borders and edges of objects don’t scale when you scale an object in Creately.
- Create Links in Creately to other diagrams and URLs.
You asked for it, so now you can easily create links between your diagrams in Creately or to any other web URL. This is especially useful for UI mockups and Sitemaps, giving you the chance to document not only the page designs but the actual interactions and flows between your webpages and site.
- Many more features and fixes
There are lots more features and fixes we’ve put up in this release. Check out our Community Support Forum to see all the user requested features that we’ve added or fixed.
So login to Creately now so check out all these great new additions, and we’ll have another release out soon, so tell us what you’d love to see in Creately.
