Custom interface - On your request we can build a custom user interface that will both visually and functionally meet your needs - from the simplest product configurator to a full-scale online graphic application.

Supported element manipulation operations:

  • Drag / Move
  • Scale (including the fix-aspect toggle)
  • Rotate
  • Mirror
  • Depth ordering (bring to front / send to back)
  • Colorize vector elements (palette / HSL color picker, eyedropper, HTML color code)
  • Font / Style / Size / Align for text-based elements
  • Lock / Hide element
  • Multi-select Tool
  • Crop Tool (for both vector and bitmap elements)
