New Easel Features: Search, snapshots and more!

February has been a big month for Easel improvements! There are three big features I’d like to share. All three should make Easel an easier and more powerful aid to making.



Project snapshots

It has always been difficult to find an old project. Even if you are careful and organized with names, it is not always easy to remember what project you are looking for. Now Easel will take a snapshot of what your project looks like and display it in the project drawer. You can now easily scan through your projects to find the one you are looking for visually. Snapshots are created whenever your project is saved, so the picture will always be in sync with your project.




Project search

In addition to using pictures to find the right project, we’ve also introduced an instant search to help you find a specific project by name. Simply type a bit of the project name and the list will automatically update.












Easel Live Featured Apps

Apps in Easel are a combination of ideas about what to make and tools for how to make. We have made some major improvements to the way apps are organized and displayed. There are now categories, featured apps created by the Easel team, larger photos, and new animations to let you see how the apps work just by hovering your mouse over the image. Featured apps also all have links to Easel Live events explaining in-depth how to use them to create awesome projects.





What's next? Find out early on the forum.

These changes and many others are posted to the Inventables Community Forum where we give first looks at new features, announce early-access features and gather feedback. It is also a great place to find help and connect with other carvers. Check it out!
