For version 1.1.2
Compile for x86
Move to 10.4
Upload development plan to website
Application does not work in a folder with non-ascii characters
Color changes during color picking
When you move one color slider, other sliders move too
Merge strokes option is not dimmed when it should be
Smoothness cannot be set by the slider in Tool Properties
Hatch and scatter slider does not work
If you zoom in far enough and then draw the application crashes
You can deselect the current pen tool by clicking in an empty area in the tool panel
Zoom in/zoom out is not centered to the mid point of the screen
I cannot reproduce this now -- but I'm sure I reproduced it before... have I fixed it?
Faster load by saving bitmap in image file
Option for disabling this (via defaults mechanism)
Also option for generating image preview
Split up lines that are too long (they take long to draw)
Draw a single dot by just clicking
Holding spacebar is quick switch for panning canvas
Test (on x86 and PPC)
No long pauses (planned for 1.1.3)
Run performance/memory debuger (when no more pressing issues)
Menu option for reimporting layer as bitmap (after layer support is done)
Main feature development line
Layer support (Rita 2.0)
Network collaboration drawing (Rita 3.0)
Small feature requests from users
More keyboard commands
Pan with shift would be nice.|
Context menus would be nice.
Fast keys for increasing/decreasing pen size, opacity, etc (instead of just selecting a fixed value) -- migh be assigned to pen buttons.
Undo buttons in toolbar
Medium feature requests from users
Let cursor represent pen size (as in photoshop)
Allow users to customize all cursors?
User wants arrow instead of crosshair to "see what he is doing" with pen tool size 1.
Change color of already drawn objects (opacity, etc -- as well)
Big feature requests from users
Course notes improvements
When working with multi-page documents, zooming in and out, it is hard to stay on the same "scale". Maybe a zoom too 100 % option to zoom to a known zoom level.
Also perhaps page guidelines that can be used to limit pages.
Page guidelines for printing multipage documnts.
Import/export vector formats (illustrator, PDF, SVG)
Export will not be perfect (but some users do not mind)
Enable in through a "hidden" option?
Rita paths are not "nice" -- contains lot of objects, hard to edit in vector program
Cropped to the current view?
Text support -- editing text
Some ideas of my own
Bookmark support, to return to a particular view
Multiple simulatenous view of the same file
Softer brushes (like an airbrush)
Good, fast rendering algorithm?
Save tool preferences (color, size, etc) in file
Easy to save custom brushes
Links to included files -- instead of saving them in document?
Partial stroke undo -- drag a slider to shorten the last stroke -- useful?
Group strokes -- for more vector-like behavior?
Real curved strokes - that looks as curves even when zoomed in to the maximum
Will need new file format
Export to custom Rita XML -- for third party interoperability
Search for pens in Library/Application Support -- standard way of sharing custom pens / pen sets
