Zoom to Selection

Make a selection on the artboard and use a shortcut (Command+3) to zoom directly to the selection.

New animations

Play with additional transitions in your designs. Last month, we changed the name of “Slide” transitions to “Push” to better reflect what they do.  This month, we’re introducing true Slide transitions.

Customer feedback improvements

Based on your requests, we’ve added several new enhancements to the latest release, including controls in the Property Inspector to help specify whether an artboard should vertically scroll, and constraining proportions of an element.
