Reorder open tabs in your Indigo Studio project and other improvements

George Abraham / Monday, March 16, 2015

Here’s what you will find in Version 4 (update 3):

Drag Reorder Open Tabs

In a previous update, we overhauled the project tab for open projects and documents. And now we are taking it one step further by allowing you to drag reorder open tabs. Simply grab the tab (active or inactive) and drag it into position. You can also use keyboard shortcuts cmd/ctrl + shift + arrow key to move the active tab.

Editors for Position and Size

Quite a few of you requested the ability to key in precise pixel values for position and size. Indigo Studio always supported entering height and width values, but was one-click down.

Now there is a new section in the property editor for location and position. The auto-height and width options are also readily available. It’s a small thing, but we understand that it makes it easier to glance at the size and position values. And one more thing, you can use the up/down arrow key to increase or decrease the values in the editor.

Size and Location editors

Project Refresh

You can now refresh the project home without having to close and reopen the project to see changes made in the file-system. Instead of a simple refresh, Indigo Studio will notify you of any changes made in the file system. This can be handy if other users are making changes to documents you have open in your project.

Search & Delete Screenparts

The screenparts under the screenparts tab in your toolbox are now searchable. So go ahead and fill it up without worrying about quickly locating one. You can also right click and delete the screenpart right from the toolbox. And yes, delete key will also work.


Enhancements to Image Picker

The image picker now remembers the last sort order you selected. That is, by recently changed or by name. We also show you the image name or date info depending on the sort order selected.

Hiding Property Editor During Multi-select

You may have noticed that the property editor sometimes gets in the way when you are multi-selecting UI elements.

It’s now more intelligent and hides itself when you begin multi-selecting. Let us know how it’s working out for you.

Tweaks to UI elements toolbox

The UI elements now have a hover style when you try to select and drag one from the toolbox.

How to get this Update?

Here's how you can update the version of Indigo Studio installed on your machine:

  • If you have the option to automatically check for updates on startup checked, you should see a dialog box pop up when you launch Indigo. Simply click update, and Indigo Studio will do the rest. This is the easier approach.
  • If for some reason you chose not to automatically check for updates, go to MENU > HELP & ABOUT and use the "CHECK FOR UPDATES" option.
