ColliderScribe v3.7.2
  • New feature: Space Fills can now have the step value of the random rotation specified.
  • Improvement: When subtracting or intersecting with the Super Marquee tool in Boolean mode, you can now choose to use 'Contextual Highlighting', which only highlights the objects which are already selected and therefore affected by the marquee operation.

VectorScribe v4.7.5
  • Improvement: The Extend Path tool annotation color is now user-selectable; pressing the 'H' key when dragging the tool changes it on the fly.
  • Bug fix: The PathScribe tool can now move the handle of a path inside a Live Paint group when Smart Guides are enabled.

VectorScribe v4.7.3
  • New feature: Delaunay triangulations may now be created from the anchor points of any selected paths using the new PathScribe panel flyout menu item, "Delaunay Triangulate...".

  • Bug fix: When hovering with the Dynamic Shapes Tool cursor to recognize shapes, attempting to recognize a path with Dynamic Corners will no longer cause the path to disappear or become distorted.
