Object Editor (SOEXPLORER):

  1. Cards & Decks are now named alphabetically so they are grouped together. Object names also now include the card size in the name.

  2. Copy Animation allows you to copy all animation segments of the selected object.
  3. Paste Animation: REPLACE ALL of the selected object’s animation segments with the copies ones.
  4. Append Animation: ADD the copied animation segments to the selected object.
  5. UI improvements: New button graphics, fonts and alignments.

Previewer/Review:

  1. New design for Pause & Back buttons. Back button is now only visible when content is paused first, and it stays on the screen for a short while after Back has been selected (so that tapping back multiple times is easy).
  2. Subtitle font and styling was improved to make it more readable.
  3. Pause functionality fixed (in the previous version pausing the previewer was impossible).

2021-Mar-10

  • Flow Editor:
    • Preview button was moved to top left corner and the button has been made bigger so it’s easier to hit (it was in the bottom right corner, but was hidden whenever the Inspector was open).
    • Inspector is now “sticky”. It stays open until closed and vice versa. If no step is selected, the inspector is not shown at all.
    • Quick selection of which global variable values are used in Previewer was brought above the Previewer button on the top left corner.
  • Previewer:
    • Inspector now shows string variables.
    • Status of boolean variables is updated correctly.
  • Logic Editor:
    • Action “SetRandomNumber” and the math operations using two variables now work correctly in the app.
  • Content Editor:
    • When no object is selected, the Inspector no longer shows an error. Instead,  the basic settings for the step are shown. For example, this is an easy way to check what the subtitle for the step is.
  • General bug fixes.
  • Improved performance.

Preview button is now on the top left corner.
