🚀 The menu you’ve all been waiting for…

New commands plus all of our keyboard shortcuts are available in a right click menu.

🔒 Lock

You asked (and asked) and we listened - now you can lock objects on your canvas! You can lock one or many objects at one time, and prevent them from accidentally getting moved as you add and move other objects in the canvas. This is very helpful for furniture floorplans; you can lock your floorplan and then easily add and move furniture without moving the background!

An unlocked object or group of objects will have a purple highlighted border when selected. Once you lock the object, the border turns gray indicating it is locked.

The right click menu shows an object highlighted and has the option to Lock Selection
Right click to see the menu, and lock selection or use the shortcut cntrl/command + L
The same picture as the one before is shown but now the object has a gray border.
The border turns gray to show the objects are locked.

🔙 Send to Back / Front

Another game-changer for layering and creating your mood boards and layouts! Send objects to the back or bring them to the front.

The right click menu shows options to bring to front or send to back.

🔍 Zoom Extents

Never get lost in your canvas again! Now instead of having to scroll to zoom all the way out, select the Zoom Extents option to be brought back to the extent of your canvas.

📂 View Product Details & View Image

You can open any object in a new tab. If the object is a product from the catalog, you can open the product spec, which will open the full product card in a new tab.

If the object is an image that you brought onto the canvas, you have the option to open the image in a new tab. This will allow you to download or save the image.

🔃 Reset Transform

This feature will reset images or objects back to their original state, so if you transformed them to play with your design, you don't have to remember how to transform them back!

Looking for other features in the right click menu? We love your feedback - and you can easily submit feedback when you're logged in by going to the question mark icon in your left menu bar. We can't wait to hear from you!

And one more cool feature in this release...

💞 Name in canvas

Now you can see the name of your canvas in the upper left, and you can edit the name straight from the canvas instead of just your dashboard.

A Canoa canvas shows furniture and art and highlights the name of canvas at upper left.
Peep the canvas name in the upper left, where you can edit directly.

See you next week!
