3 New Features in Component.Studio

The Game Crafter - Component.Studio - Board Game Design App

We’re excited to announce 3 new features for the SVG Optimizer in https://Component.Studio:

1. There is now an undo feature. If you find you have made a mistake, hit undo and your mistake will be forgotten.

2. The system can automatically sequence your paths for you if you want it to. This should save you a bunch of time manually optimizing them for the shortest travel distance. Find this feature under the hamburger menu.

3. There are now 3 additional levels of zoom available in SVG Optimizer.
