Constraining a line to 90 degree angles while drawing

Postby atomdocs on Tue Oct 29, 2013 12:22 am

I have just started using Capture and I really like the close integration with Flare. It massively speeds up my screenshot/callout workflow. There is one thing that I am disappointed not to find, though: constrain lines to 90 or 45 degrees with CTRL or SHIFT or another key modifier while drawing. I like my lines to be straight, and doing this by eye is cutting in half the time I gain through Capture's Flare/layers integration.

Is this function available somewhere in Capture?

Thanks,

Tom

I might be wrong, but I don't think that function exists in Capture. I miss it, too.

Once you've got a line that looks good, you can add it to your palette so that you can quickly add it elsewhere and then just fiddle with its length.

Thanks for the tip Nita, I'll do that. The palette function is nice. I think I'll put in a feature request too.
