and put on my wishlist for 4Ds form-editor

4Ds forms-editor very much still resembles an early vectordrawing-app, a metaphor that MacDraw introduced 3 decades ago. Sometime during the evolution the forms-editor was enhanced by growing/moving-options for form-elements. Very welcome then, very basic today. There is a „Group and Symbol Resizing“-presentation for Sketch 39, which describes what’s missing in 4Ds growing/moving-options for form-elements today.

Der Formular-Editor in 4D erinnert mich stets an die ersten Vektorzeichenprogramme, insbesondere MacDraw aus den 1980er Jahren. Im Laufe der Versionsentwicklung bekamen Objekte die Optionen zu wachsen oder sich zu bewegen. Ich habe das begrüßt und nutze diese Eigenschaften regelmäßig. Glücklich bin ich mit diesen beiden Optionen nicht mehr. Was mir fehlt beschreibt die „Group and Symbol Resizing“-Präsentation für Sketch 39 sehr gut.


Sorry, this movie is hosted on YouTube. If the movie doesn’t work on this page*, try to watch on YouTube.

* it will not work, when adblockers are installed. But YouTube doesn’t tell you that. Instead there is some tech murmur about HTML5-video embedding which is pure nonsense.
