Napkin 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Aged and Distilled has released Napkin 1.1 with a new automatic guide feature added to the visual communication and screenshot tool (reviewed earlier this year by Josh Centers; see “Napkin Offers a Fresh Take on Visual Communication,” 16 February 2013). A temporary visual guide is now displayed when moving or resizing a Napkin item, and its edges and center point snap to other items on a napkin. You can turn off the automatic snapping by holding the Command key when moving or resizing. The update also fixes a crash that occurred when deleting an image from a napkin that contained a Call-Out, and patches some small memory leaks. ($39.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 8.6 MB, release notes)
