On October 2010 editor release Joomag introduced several new features. Here I’m going to discuss 2 of them: a new way of selecting multiple objects and means of aligning the selected objects.
In previous versions of Joomag editor, selection of multiple objects was done by making a rectangular selection. The objects that were in marked area were selected. This had the drawback that sometimes objects that were not intended to be selected were getting selected. (see the picture below, there is no chance to select red and blue ellipses without selecting the yellow one)
This method of selection is still available in Joomag editor, but to provide the ability of selecting only the objects you need, Joomag introduces the new way of selection.
Just press the Shift key and start selecting the objects by clicking on them with your mouse pointer. (see the picture below, we’ve selected 3 ellipses without selecting the yellow rectangle in the center as we’ve selected each ellipse separately)
Now let’s discuss the new aligning functions of Joomag editor.
