Extra extra! There’s a new Sketchpad in town! Here’s a rundown of the latest features:
- Choose a theme, or create your own! 😀 My current favorite is Deep Purple!
- 12 languages professionally translated, complete with LTR/RTL support:
- Realtime preview of tools while editing settings!
- High-Res export is now more reliable with all tools.
- SVG export has been added.
- Heart shape added.
- A few spunky new clipart have been added, not much, but super cute, more soon!
- The interface has been smoothed out, to be more a structured, uniform, and visual user experience.
- Vector Fill has greatly improved support for Clipart.
- Bitmap Fill (previously Floodfill) is back! The latest version creates a vectorized cache of the floodfill region making future renders much speedier.
- Much speedier scrolling of Layers/History panes thanks to Clusterize.js
Hope you enjoy! Btw, If you work with a school or non-profit education center contact me about getting a free license to use SketchPad with your students.
