As often as I can I make notes of things I’d like in Pencil2D while drawing because after a drawing session I tend to forget what improvement I was thinking of, so I post my notes from my last 2 weeks with the new Pencil version 0.6.0 ( Also tried the nightly)
I didn’t want to put this in ideas because some of it may already have been taken into account and maybe even being worked on. So here’s my list, please note these are of course just friendly suggestions, no demands and I’m perfectly happy with what you’ve done so far. So thanks again for that !
#1 Select range when exporting frames
It would be very nice if you had the option to only export the frames that you need.
#2 Make all tools settings stick.
For now stabilizer for the pencil tool is always set to none if you set it and close/start Pencil2D again.
#3 Undo buttons on screen
Usually i use the shortcut keys for this but could there be room for them somwhere? I think it sometimes would be nice to have them visible.
#4 Lasso tool
A lasso select tool would be great, maybe the select tool could alter behaviour when ctrl is pressed or another key?
#5 Drag frame to next layer
I sometimes have many layers when animating, if it would be possible to drag a frame to the over/under -lying layer then it would be more convenient to not have to use copy paste. This could also maybe be blocked as default because you can create a mess with dragging/dropping but maybe if you pressed the CTRL+SHIFT key while dragging it would allow you to drag it over to other layers? Just an idea.
#6 Copy/paste in same frame
Maybe I’m doing something wrong but copy pasting actually work more as cut and paste if you do it on the same frame. If I paste in the same frame it puts it in the exact same position where it was when i copied it and that is ok but when I drag the selected element to either side there’s nothing beneath it, therefore it acts as if i took cut/paste instead.
