Default Re: Wishlist for DRAW Suite 13

You can post them here and I'll forward them to the right people...

Are you talking about automation features or general application ones? Either way, feel free to post.

Default Wishlist for Version 13 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, my three first wishes are an absolutly need request
that I pray too much to see it in version 13:

1- Be able to: create Layer(s) ONLY on specific page(s),
not to the whole document.

2- Be able to: Show/Hide individual Object(s)
not to the whole entirely Layer.

-----------------------------------------
For those who creates complex catalogs, user’s manuals, etc.
That’s will be a Miracle!

All competitors have this feature, :moderato:
just take a look how works the Illustrator’s "Layer" Docker
and/or to the ACDSee Canvas9’s "Document Layout".
-----------------------------------------

3- Be able to: Put transparency & Lens Effects Objects
to the Symbol Library Docker.

4- Be able to: Create folders in the Symbol Manager
(to organize objects)

5- Be able to: Create our own Customizable presets for dynamic guides

6- Be able to: Erase/Cut Grouped Objects

7- Be able to: Choose to put the Outline’s Object: Inside/Outside/Middle

8- A Node Editor Docker,
to be able to put exactly each node of an Object
on the X and Y coordinates.

9- A better Quality Display for Linked Bitmaps

10- A Vector feather feature (like XaraX, too cool!)

11- Be able to: apply Perspective on Bitmaps

12- Be able to: apply Enveloppe on Bitmaps

13- Be able to: "Convert Outline to Object" on grouped Objects

14- a Mesurement Ruler tool (with snapping)
to be able to know the distance between two nodes,
or two curves, etc.

15- Add to the Polyline Tool a third possibility:
To do also beziers curves!

16- Be able to: Snap on the edges of the page
& edges of printable area.

17- Why 2 Property Bars for the Eyedropper Tool?
1 with all options will be more efficient.
(we always have to switch between!)

18- When we want to take a color with the Eyedropper Tool
"Select from Desktop"
"it could be cool if we go a "Live Preview" of the Color
(on the Status Bar) BEFORE we choose the color.

19- It could be cool to the Perfect Shapes window to remain open,
to be able to try and draw many PerfectShapes
without leave the window.

Also, maybe it would be perhaps simpler
to put the the five Perfect Shapes little windows,
(Basic, Arrow, Flowchart, Stars, Callouts)
in only one window, to simplify.

Also, The Menu Bar (Window / Dockers) must remain open
to be able to Check or Uncheck multiple Dockers.

20- Transparent Real-Time Preview (Alpha 0 -100)
to be able to see through the dragged Object
and see the drawing what there is below.

21- Pixel Preview & Snap to pixels & Pixel Grid

22- Polar Grids

23- A Transparent Background Option
to be able to see White objects & White Outlines in the work area.

24 - When Object(s) are Selected:
An Interactive Live Preview in:
- the fill color dialog
- the fountain fill dialog
- Outline Pen dialog

---------------------------
to be continued ...

Hi Alex,
I just wonder to know your professional opinions
about my wishlist for v.13 that I have posted.

But specially about my three first wishes.
Do you think that is doable and necessary?

Thanks!

Default Re: -

What can I say? All are good suggestions. Many of those were or my personal wish list for quite some time now as well. Regarding feasibility of those features to be implemented, I guess it will come down to the number of requests for these features from the users in main target markets vs. the amount of development resources available. This decision, as many other business decisions, will have to be weighed against such criteria.

I'm sure Corel receives tons of cool ideas, but they have to choose only those that has the most impact on the majority of the users for minimum cost (high return on investment).

But I would definitely like to see your ideas (as well as many of mine ) implemented.

You asked for my opinion, now you have it.

Default Wish #25

Wish #25:

When any Symbol is selected,
it's very helful to see the eight handles (square dots indicators)
of the object(s) not in black, but in blue.

That great idea to help identify Special Objets,
could also be apply for example:

- in Objects who contains PowerClips (Red).
- in linked bitmaps Externally (Green)
- in grouped Objects ( ... )

Default Wish #26

Wish #26:

In the menu: Tools/Options.../Workspace/Customization/Commands
(Appearance docker)

We can modify already existing icons
or create new ones for example for .GMS macros.

I think the existing color palette (called Pen Color)
have few limited colors.

It could be very useful to remplace it
simply by the Fill Color Dialog.

Also, It could be absolutely useful to have an Eyedropper Color Tool,
to take a Color's Samplers of others existing Icons.

Wish #27:

In the menu: Tools/Options.../Workspace/Customization/Commands
(Appearance docker)

A copy and paste button for existing toolbar icons.
Just to make a copy of a peviously edited icon.
So we don't have to do same icon twice, or export it via screenshot and import it again.
