Effortless Sticky Notes with Right Click to Pan


Sticky Notes Made Easy with Double Click

Now you can double-click on an empty space on the canvas to add a sticky note! Once your sticky note is added, you can type in your notes, ideas, reminders, etc. To move the sticky, just drag and drop it into a new frame or anywhere on the canvas. You can stylize or format, using the floating menu (appears on selection). If you need to delete it, simply press delete.

This fantastic feature will improve your experience with:

  • Quick and Easy Add: Forget drag and drop, just-double click and you’re done!
  • Convenience: Sticky notes are great for jotting down ideas or quick reminders.

Right Click to Pan

With the right-click and drag-to-pan feature you can pan around the workspace very easily by right-clicking and dragging the mouse. This is a more intuitive and efficient way to pan than using the scroll bars (or having to use the toggle in the bottom right corner), especially when you are working on large or complex workspaces.

During a collaboration session, you can tell the new invitees to double-click anywhere to add a sticky note to add ideas, and right-click and drag to pan to explore the workspace. This helps them get up to speed quickly and start contributing to the project.

Shape Library Optimized for Lower Resolution Screens

The shape library has been updated to accommodate a thinner menu on lower-resolution screens, allowing for more room on the workspace and its content. This useful enhancement makes your workspace more spacious and allows you a better view of whether you’re designing, collaborating, or presenting.
