Better Quick Tools are here – more intuitive and faster than ever

Over the past months, we’ve done a lot of work to improve the left-hand toolbar which we call Quick Tools by rearranging elements and adding new ones to it. Once you start using it, you’ll see that it’s a lot more intuitive and just overall more natural to get used to. See what changes we made to our ever-improving editor.

New Shapes and an expandable menu

To make life easier for all of us, we’ve put the shapes which you probably use most often under one, expandable menu – Shapes. When you open it, you’ll see two new shapes, Polygon and Star. You can read all about it, in this tutorial.

Box and Rectangle – alike but very different

When it comes to the difference between Box and Rectangle, there’s more to it than meets the eye. To avoid any confusion, let’s get right to explaining what sets them apart. As with most things, the devil is in the details. It’s possible to add text to the Box, but since the Rectangle is a vector shape, you can customize by dragging the vector points or adding new ones.

Libraries are in Design System Libraries

Libraries, such as Bootstrap and Foundation are now in Design System Libraries under UXPin Libraries along with Material Design, iOS and User Flows. Previously, you could access them from More elements which we removed.

Easier and smooth access to elements

We’ve made it easier to work tool and to find what you need faster with less clicking around. With all the frequently used Shapes in one place and ready-to-use components under Forms, using them should all feel faster and smoother. All this and even more improvements are coming to UXPin 2.0.
