Changelog 1.6

The new features make it easy to ensure pinpoint accuracy in template creation and reinforce for departmental users that unapproved PDFs remain DRAFTS until approved by the account administrator. The DRAFT wordmark appears on any PDF that has not yet been approved by the account administrator to ensure that unapproved files remain secure. In Template Editor, you can now move text/image hotspots one pixel at a time using the arrow keys on the keyboard (with “Move Text” button on). Page guide marks are now visible while working in the Template or Project Editor, as well as in PDF files, and can be turned on and off by toggling the “Show Guides” button.

Changelog 1.9

Brand Sprokit v1.9 is here with awesome new features! Here are the new features that make Brand Sprokit 1.9 more effective than ever: Media assets can now be exported individually or in batches to an administrative user’s computer. Users can now toggle media assets to high resolution (for previewing purposes) or low-resolution (for quicker viewing and editing) while working on a Template or a Project. See the top toolbar in the Template Editor and Project Editor for the new Low/High Resolution toggle button. Note that all media assets will appear in their original resolutions when the final PDF is produced. Administrative users can now resize images directly within the Asset Manager. To make sure you’re using the most up-to-date version, right click your mouse while on the Brand Sprokit page, and choose “Reload.” That’s all there is to it! When the title bar at the upper left reads, “Brand Sprokit 1.9” you’re done! Talk to us: If you […]
