(Windows/macOS) Set shortcut keys no matter your keyboard language

Some of the default shortcuts have been changed, and shortcut key settings for menu commands now match the keyboard layout (compatible with AZERTY layout).

Enhanced 3D Tools

  • Save multiple camera angles
    The Switch camera setting has been added to the Sub Tool Detail palette when a 3D layer is selected. You can duplicate the current angle to add new camera angles and arrange and save them separately. Then, switch between camera angles as needed.
  • Better usability
    • You will be able to change the scale of each part of 3D objects. When the part is selected, you can adjust the size with the Object scale setting in the manipulator or the Sub Tool Detail palette.
    • You will be able to adjust the width, height, and depth of 3D objects separately using the root manipulator. The size in dimension can also be adjusted from the Sub Tool Detail palette when Fixed ratio is turned off.

  • Fish-eye perspective
    • The Fish-eye perspective setting has been added to the Panorama category for 3D layers. You can apply fish-eye perspective to the panorama image to adjust the viewing angle up to double.
  • Export panorama UV maps
    • The UV Map setting has been added to the Panorama category in the Sub Tool Detail palette when a 3D layer is selected. You can use this to export a panorama UV map.
    • The Export as panorama image setting has been added to the Panorama category in the Sub Tool Detail palette when a 3D layer is selected. You can export a 360° panoramic view of the surroundings as seen from the camera.

(iPhone/Galaxy/Android) Redesigned home screen

The home page on the smartphone app has been redesigned. You will be able to create canvases and resume existing projects straight away, as well as access the latest news, official tutorials, Assets, and other services to help you in your creation.

These will appear when resizing objects independently with the axis-specific scaling handles, when the movement axis and the rotation axis are set to Object axis in the Sub Tool Detail palette, and when the Pivot point for multiple objects is set to Local pivot points.
  • (iPhone/Galaxy/Android) The home page on the smartphone app has been redesigned.
