Tiny New Feature with a Big Impact: Size Overlay

· Posted by Peldi in Products · 1 Comment

This is my favorite kind of feature: there when you need it, invisible when you don't. It took about 15 minutes to code, and solves a real need.

In short: when you need it*, you will now be able to see the size of the selection.

This 30-seconds video shows it in action (there's no audio):

* With "when you need it", I mean: "when you resize a selection bigger than 200 x 200 pixels.

It's already live, you can try it here on the site or update your builds now if you want it! 🙂

Thanks to Jason Yanowitz and Robert Myers, two awesome customers who asked for this feature (it was already on my TODO list, but I bumped its priority because of their feedback).

  1. This feature is even better than I realized at first — it pretty much obviates my earlier request for a fixed canvas size option. The kinds of screens I’ve been needing fixed sizes for almost always involve a surrounding dialog box or tab navigator. So now I can just set the size of the container the way I want, and get consistent PNG snapshots. (They will include some outer padding, but that’s OK, easy consistency was the real issue.)
