ANN: PowerTools 2.0

Post by mwieder » Wed May 03, 2017 9:14 pm

With the 9.0 release of LiveCode just around the corner, we're announcing the new build of PowerTools.
As usual, this is a free upgrade for existing users, and it's still only $40 US for new users.

PowerTools is a drop-in plugin replacement for the IDE's built-in tools palette.
It gives you
  • better controls organization
  • natively-drawn controls (not monochrome svg)
  • improved paint tools with persistent properties
  • additional controls
  • widget organization using folders and aliases
  • save screen real estate (double-click to minimize or restore)
  • much, much more

Thanks.

I suppose I should also point out that the camera tool on the paint palette gives a workaround for the nonfunctional "import snapshot" command on linux, allowing you to select a rectangular portion of the screen using the crosshairs.

It's unfortunate that's been outstanding so long, but glad you have a workaround for it.

Yah, it's ugly and I'm happy to share it with anyone who needs the workaround. After two years I just got tired of waiting.
