Writer's Portal Update: Week of May 22, 2023 (yes, we know it’s late)

First off, we’d like to take a second to say that we’re so sorry we’d caught everyone off guard with this update! This update slipped past us in terms of putting out what was new before it was released. We truly do apologize.

Below you’ll find the updates we made:

Outfit Editor Updates

This is meant to make it easier to see your character and the changes you make as you scroll through further clothing and/or down the page. Additionally, clothing items now have a visibility toggle, so you can turn on or off a clothing item to see how everything pairs together without having to remove every piece on and off.

Snippets

We’ve added a small selection of keyboard shortcuts to the Donacode editor. Ctrl should work on all platforms; Cmd is also supported on macOS.

Zone Scrolling

We’ve removed the limitation on the Camera Focus tool on Portal. Previously, authors were locked into single zones for Focus scrolling. Now, you’ll be able to scroll across all background zones!

Will this affect the zooming already done in our scripts? Since the X and Y axis can now go higher.

This is awesome (especially the keyboard shortcuts)

@Tory, – for the zone scrolling-- does this mean we can now use 1/2 zone areas as well for character spotting/zooming in on them or - ? today seems to be a day for brain fog for me and I’m not quite understanding. lol :woman_shrugging:

Can someone explain the zoom scrolling

ya, its pretty much zoom while scrolling

you can zoom throughout all zones without having to constantly change between zones. it basically saves you the because you don’t have to code every single time cut to zone 1/2/3 and then zoom in in all those zones
