Curio 6.2 Release Notes

Release Date

November 16, 2009

Requirements

Curio requires Mac OS X v10.5 (Leopard) or Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) on PowerPC or Intel machines.

New Features

Curio 6.2 adds more yummy goodies to Curio 6.

Curved and Orthogonal Lines

Curio now supports curved and orthogonal lines! Just right-click on a multipoint line to select a new line type via the context menu, or change the line type in the Figure inspector. You can drag your midpoints around to change the shape of the spline curve or orthogonal control points.

On-The-Fly Multipoint Lines

You can still right-click on an existing line to add midpoints but now we've added an even faster way to create multipoint lines.

Grab the line tool and click to start the first point, then drag to place the endpoint. But before you release the mouse button hold down the Option key. When you release the mouse you'll find that you've dropped a midpoint and now you're placing a new endpoint. Continue holding down Option to keep dropping midpoints as you release the mouse. If you're done, just release the Option key before you drop your last point.

Since we're using the Option key for this that means we've taking away the normal modifier to create a non-sticky endpoint. So, the Control key is now used for that operation: just hold Control while dragging a point so you can place it over an existing figure without sticking to the figure.
