Version 1.1 of ShapeChef is now available for download. In addition to dozens of bug fixes and performance improvements, the update includes the following major enhancements.
ShapeChef’s new copy and paste functionality makes it easy to move items around in your shape library. This works in the same way as moving files in Windows Explorer. You select a shape or category, right click on it, and select “Copy” or “Cut” from the context menu. ShapeChef also supports common keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl+C for copy and Ctrl+V for paste.
We have extended the application’s import functionality, allowing you to directly import image files into your shape library. Many common image formats are supported, including PNG, JPG, and EMF.
By default, the categories in your shape library are ordered by their names. Starting with this version, you can change this behavior by assigning sort keys to categories. The categories will then be sorted by their keys first and then by their names.
Another change is that ShapeChef now remembers the expanded/collapsed state for each category in a shape library and restores it at the next start.
ShapeChef Version 1.1 is a free update. Just download and run the installer from here, and enjoy the improvements!
