CRICUT: What's new in Design Space 2 - part 3

Continuing on with the February 2015 changes to Design Space.

The Layers, Edit, Sync and Canvas panels

Not much has changed with these panels other than that you can undock and dock them.


You can still open and close layers by clicking on the down arrow next to the layer name. (Very useful if there's a lot of pieces in a layer - you don't have to scroll down as far if you're looking for a layer that's right at the bottom...)  Click on the arrow again to reopen the layer.

A handy little addition here is the ability to Tab between the layers. Click on one of the layer names and press the Tab key on your keyboard. Each time you press Tab it will move down a layer. Use Shift+Tab to move backwards. ☺

And of course you still click on the scissor icon to change between Cut, Write, Score and Print.


The Edit box hasn't changed much.

The Width & Height boxes still round up/down to two decimal places. (I'd really like to see 3 decimal places for when I'm using 1/8" measurements.)

The Rotate dial from the old version doesn't appear in the new version. I actually found it useful, but I guess a lot of people didn't.

And finally something that I've been hoping for ever since Design Space was released... You can now tab between the Height & Width boxes and the X & Y boxes! It's something small but makes such a difference!


There's no change to how things work in the Sync box. ☺


It looks like the canvas options are working much better now. The sizes are able to be changed and those changes are saved!

Happy crafting!  ♥
