Qt Design Studio 1.3 released
We are happy to announce the release of Qt Design Studio 1.3!
Qt Design Studio is a UI design and development tool that enables designers and developers to rapidly prototype and develop complex UIs. Both designers and developers use Qt Design Studio and this makes collaboration between the two a lot simpler and more streamlined. To get an impression, you should watch this video.
Qt Bridge for Sketch
Symbol Overrides match perfectly with the concept of components and properties in QML. Using Symbol Overrides different instances of a Button can have for example different text properties. Symbol Overrides are now exported to QML components with the override properties exposed as properties of the component.
Another really important addition to the Sketch Bridge is the ability to exports SVGs instead of bitmap graphics. This way vector graphics are still rescalable in QML after they have been exported.
We were not satisfied with the usability of the expression binding editor, especially the auto-completion. The new binding editor is based directly on the code editor widget for QML which improves the usability a lot. This makes editing your bindings a lot more convenient.
Advanced Curve Editor
Another addition to Qt Design Studio 1.3 is the new advanced curve editor for animations. The new curve editor allows adjusting the interpolation curves for multiple keyframes in a single view and is closer to animation tools known from 3D software.
This is a great tool to fine-tune very complex animations and to fully control the slope of animations on keyframes. This makes is possible to create animations of really high quality.Of course Qt Design Studio 1.3 still has the simpler timeline editor.
WebAssembly based QML viewer
In the meantime, we have also been working on a WebAssembly based QML viewer. This viewer allows you to package pure QML projects to the web and preview them in the browser. While we are still working on this we are confident to be able to show something, soon.
Community EditionWith Qt Design Studio 1.3 there is also a free community version available, which lacks the Photoshop and Sketch bridges, though. The Beta of the Qt Design Studio 1.3 Community Edition can be found here.
Last but not least many bugs were fixed for Qt Design Studio 1.3.
