After our release back in August where we improved the usability of our layer system, it’s time for another major feature on our road to redesign pidoco: groups. With the current release you can group several elements together such that they behave as one single element. You can move them, clone them, copy them to a different page, do whatever you like, without the need to first select all single items. It is also possible to add groups to another group.
Why is this a major feature? Because groups will become custom stencils in the future. To be more precise: you will be able to convert a group into a custom stencil that is available in your palette. This way, you will be able to change several occurrences of such a stencil at once by modifying the custom stencil. But this is future talk, for now there are just simple groups.
This not being enough, we also added two new stencils: unordered and ordered lists. They can be edited similar to the way you define the hierarchy of a menu but are converted to the HTML ul and ol elements. All entries that begin with stars (*) are unordered items and all entries with the hash (#) are ordered items. This way, you can also mix both types in one list.
Do you have ideas for further stencils? Are you missing a feature very bad? Have a look at our feedback forum and add your thoughts or vote for existing suggestions.
