Object Properties

Once I've created an object, say a circle, there is no way to change the fill and line color or thickness. This is a huge issue. I have to input all my correct thickness and color settings and THEN create the object. There is no way to change the settings on an object later. This is very limiting and kills a sense of the NLE approach.

Line alignment

There is no way to make a line be aligned to common angles, such as 0°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 90°, 180°, 270°, 360° - this is a common feature and would be very useful for creating a ground line, for instance.

Item at workspace status panel

There is a little frame number field at the bottom, next to the zoom field. Allow the user to enter the frame number. Remove the pound (#) sign and just let the user learn from tooltips what the field is for.

About the objet rotation feature

  • Switch the rotation hotkey to simply R key. This is much quicker to hit than Alt+R.
  • Second, once the R key is pressed, have the rotation be put into action (instead of just changing the nodes to rotation nodes,) so that the when you move the mouse (or type in the degrees while the object is stuck to your mouse in rotation mode,) the object rotates with it - maybe a left = rotate counterclockwise.
  • Mouse to plus x = clockwise rotation. Distance from origin of object (which can be set,) is the degree of rotation.

Tooltips issue

Do you need me to write your tooltips? They're empty. Good hover timing on them, though. Bravo.

About presets

You can select a preset in the new document parameters, but the preset is locked. Instead make the presets switch to "Custom settings" when you change any parameters. This way you can have fewer presets and a more dynamic setup for a good user experience.

Have an option to save your own custom presets. Just a simple plus (and minus) button next to the preset dropdown list would suffice, which would bring up a dialog box to name (and thus save) the new preset.

Save As dialog pops up every two minutes

With Tupi open, while doing anything with it at the time, it will automatically open a Save Project As dialog every two minutes. It interrupts other programs and assumes top priority, so I have to close it every two minutes and not just leave Tupi running in the background.

Importing SVG files

Depending on the object resolution, when a SVG file is imported into a project and it's saved, the size and position values of the object get misconfigured when the project is re-opened.

Alpha value field in the Palette Color panel

The alpha value combo only shows few pre-defined values. This control must provide a range of values from 0 to 255 and the history option has to be enhanced.

Tupi Community: Important announcement!

Hello there! After my last trip to Foz do Iguaçu, I'm very happy to see how our project is getting visibility around the world. Although the spreading speed is slow, every day more people are talking about Tupi, which makes me very proud :)
