EazyDraw 1.6.3

Download: 8M Disk Image

EazyDraw is an affordable drawing application designed exclusively for Mac OS X. It is useful for many creative projects including technical drawings, illustrations, icons, logos, and stylized text

Several new palette management menu selections are now provided on the View main menu. You can now save the configuration of all the palettes - which ones are open, their window shade roll up state, and screen position. The documentation for these is in progress. Documentation is complete for the new menu commands, please check there for full details.

Added a new save format which compresses the disk file data. This is a loss-less compression, no information is lost in the compression. The new format is selected by performing a "Save As" and selecting the new format from the Format popup menu. This also speeds up the save and open tasks for larger files (greater than 1000's of graphics). Files saved in this manner may not be viewed and edited with a text editor or the pList editor as is the case with the uncompressed EazyDraw format. Once a file has been saved in the new format the "Save As" step is no longer needed.

New menu command on the Paste Special Menu, you may now force a graphic to be pasted "in place". This command will place the graphic(s) at the same location in destination drawing as their position in the source drawing. The command is found at the top top of the Paste Special Menu, on the Edit Menu.

Fixed several issues related to closing an EazyDraw drawing. Several users were experiencing "Unexpectedly Quit" problems when closing certain drawings. Several improvements were made for the closing process in an attempt to correct this bug.

Made significant improvements in the speed of a paste of large numbers of graphics. This is the case of copy from EazyDraw to EazyDraw. For 1000's of graphics this was exceedingly slow. It is now reasonable, several seconds are required as there is great deal of information that is transfered and applied to the destination drawing.

A new form of Gradient Fill is provided, it is a ConicBlend. It is a variant on the Conic Gradient, with the added capability to form a color gradient along the circumference of the cone and converge these gradient colors to the focus cone point. This form allows the creation of a "color wheel".
