The feature that you have most voted for is creating curved text. Today we have made a huge first step. The Text Tab in the Tools Panel is now divided into Straight and Curved. In the Curved Tab, you find several controls to adjust your text before adding it to the canvas.
With a bit of practice, you can create great results. We will improve this function over time. But as it was very complex and length, we wanted to give you something to work with as soon as possible.
A tool for creating text in a circle is already in preparation but not yet functional.
Let me know what you like about the feature and how we can improve it.
Finally, we have replaced our old default colors. To be honest, the most impressive coats of arms were built with CoaMaker when people didn't use the default colors... The new default colors will give your design a classic look right from the beginning. We had to recolor about 1,000 files to make this happen.
The user interface has several new options. When you click on a symbol, you see a mini menu with which you can change the position and the alignment. If you select several symbols at once, you can distribute them equally.
We have made several steps to increase the performance and loading time of CoaMaker. We will continue to optimize. With so many symbols, some of our old functions have become quite heavy.
If you find a bug, please let us know so that we can fix it as soon as possible!
You can now generate random coats of arms with CoaMaker! You can use this feature to quickly generate coats of arms for RPG characters, cities in worldbuilding, etc. The default colors have been adjusted to give a nicer look.
