Ceros 5.24 – Start Draggin’ My Heart Around

Released January 12, 2015, the latest edition of Ceros introduces grab ‘n drag rotation on the canvas and a more intuitive undo action for working with text.

Grab ‘n Drag Rotation

Now you can grab hold of an object on the canvas and rotate it around to the angle you want.

Select any object on the canvas and move your mouse to one of the corners until it turns into the rotate icon. Then press and hold your mouse button to turn it around. Hold the Shift key while dragging to snap to 45-degree increments.

While you’re dragging, Ceros displays the degrees so you can easily place multiple objects at the same angle. Plus, Ceros always remembers where zero is, so you can come back to the object later for precise angling.

Smart Undo for Text

We’ve also made some changes to the way undo actions apply when working with text.

Instead of undoing all the changes you’ve made since entering a text object, Ceros now reverts little bits at a time similar to programs like Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

How to Undo & Redo Actions

Press Cmd + Z (Mac) or Ctrl + Z (Windows) to undo your latest changes in order.

To redo the things you’ve just undone, press CmdY (Mac) or CtrlY (Windows).
