    Hi guys,

    Firstly, apologize about the lack of updates about the Profile Designer, but we realized that our current canvas engine is not as flexible as we want. We decide to change the canvas handler library to Fabric.js. If you're courius about the a feature set, what's fabric.js has, you can check it out on the project's site: http://fabricjs.com

    So, here's the 1.9beta changelog:
    Main screen:
    - Your profiles list is now shows the newest on top.

    Designer:
    - If you add a new control, the designer will open it's settings automatic.
    - If you moves out a cursor from the settings panel into the Control list, the settings panel slides back a little to provide better seeing to the controls.
    - The orientation parameters is now form -360 to 360 degree.
    - Smoother control images on the workspace area
    - Better resizing on the workspace area
    - Better rotation from right on the workspace area
    - Better upload process visualization

    Upcoming features:
    - Manual settings (X/Y coordinates, size parameters and more)
    - Undo/Redo
    - Ruler
    - Redesigned resource handler

    If you find any bug, just drop it in here, thank you!

    Hallo everybody, I just started with my new SBrick and I have a small issue. I have drive motors connected to channel A and B and want to controll them with 1 slider.

    I have a simple profile > slider 1 = drive, slider 2 = steer, slider 3 = front winch.

    Now I want channel A and B (both drive channels) to be controlled by slider 1. I can configure this in the channel settings in the app and it seems to be ok but when I want to controll my MOC only channel A reacts to the slider. Channel B does not react.

    If I do a channel test in the app, every channel works seperately, just not with the slider.

    what am I doing wrong here? is this function not working the way I configured it?

    can I set more channels to be controlled by 1 slider or can I join 2 sliders to be controlled as 1?

    anybody has some suggestions?

    I hope we can drop these things into the beta2 phase, coming in this month.

    Currently no, but we're going to talk about it with the app developers about this feature.

    @ Zsolt Szrakpó

    I'm logged in and the screen ratio is correct.
    I also can download the profile in the Android SBrick App 0.8 (market; my profiles).

    But I can't  linked the profil in my creation because it does not shown (my creation; linkes profiles). What can I do?

    Best regards.

    It's seems to be an android application bug. I'm push this to the developers toward.

    Thank you

    Hi Sorry for the late reply but you need to put the output on the button equal to 0.

    M MBou: Do you setted aspect ratio for your profile to 4:3? It's important to use the correct device ratio at the moment.

    Tanja: If you are logged in, and still not seen any of your profile, please check your device's screen ratio (eg.: 16:9, 4:3, etc.).

    Martin: It's seems like an app problem. We are going to investigate it as soon as possible.

    Hello, I have the iOS version 3.63 (build 204). I have llogged in using my ID but no profile I have created appear on my iPad.
    Have you considered making the Profile Designer as stand alone program to install on a PC or Mac and the option to upload profiles created to a database? It would save a lot of disappointments. Thanks and best regardsm

    hi! ^^

    I've been playing with the designer for a bit here and i've hit a snag on my current project.

    it seems the joystick rotating does not work/take effect in the app. i have tried this on both my Ipad 4 and my LG G3s. both the apps work quite good, and i would like to use the sbrick with just one joystick rotated 45 degrees to control a tank type setup. however when i rotate it (note i cannot get it exactly 45 degrees) in the designer it's not rotated on the phone/tablet.

    Strange.

    What is your app type and version?

    Are you logged in with your social account in the app? (you can login in the slide menu on left)

    Hi!

    You should use 4:3 ratio.

    I use iOS for the PD tests, but every control behavior should works on the same way on every device.
    The L motor is totally different than servos. How do you build your switch? Like ours in the feature video?

    I did the test with a L but for the switch I am using a M.

    I builded my switch using Ronald Vallenduuk's one (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=67730) because I use my old 12V tracks with 73696 a 73697 switch points.

    I don't remember what was the exact parameters, but if you're using servos, you should set the min-max to higher, the -0.1 and the 0.1 is just too small to moves the switch.

    I tried with L motor. I will try to change the values. Did you test this with android app?
