With this release of Project Draw, we've done a few things:
- The ability to go offline with Google Gears is disabled for the Firefox 3 Beta since the Firefox 3 Beta does not yet support Google Gears.
Eventually Firefox 3 will mature and support Google Gears.
- The color palette has been reconfigured to make a desired color easier to select.
Wow - this looks like one of those T-shirts I can get in Berkeley.
- A preliminary Export to DWF capability has been included.
Be gentle, this is way far from done. In Autodesk Labs tradition, we are sharing this "work in progress" with you, so you can "take a sad DWF, and make it better. Remember to let us..."
We've also addressed a few defects that you were kind enough to point out:
- An apostrophe in a file name results in an error.
Patient: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this."
Doctor: "Don't do that."
- Selecting multiple shapes, moving them, stopping, and then moving them again without unselecting led to weird behavior.
Where is Timothy Leary when you need him?
- The vertical and horizontal rulers were missing for zoom percentage = 21% when a user went offline, disconnected, and the cache was cleared.
I hate when this happens.
- The Image tab was not always updated automatically when an image was uploaded.
This one actually caused me some grief a few times.
- If a user clears the offline cache (in the Google Gears browser add-on) and goes offline before first refreshing the browser, he gets an "Error in initiating managed resource" message.
- When offline and disconnected, a refresh of the browser causes authorization dialog box to pop up.
So give Project Draw a spin and let us know what you think: [email protected].
Evolving the ability to create diagrams without installing additional software is alive in the lab.
