Finally out of the gridlock

So you have all noticed the grid in the ORM Designer, it is this handy little tool to neatly organize all your entities and modules. It was okay, but we had a look at it and thought, “okay is not enough for our users”.

Grid Settings

Oh boy, we did not see how big can this little feature get. We spent hours tweaking, arguing, tweaking again, researching, and tweaking even more. Well, it is pretty much perfect now.

You can set all the regular stuff like color and size, but you can also use this mysterious slider called “Grid Sticking” to adjust how firmly will your elements stick to the grid. All your settings will be shared between the tabs and projects and it goes without saying your changes will not get lost when you close the application.

And as always, let us know if you have an idea to make this tool even better. We strive for ORM Designer to be as user-friendly as humanely possible and we’re having great fun implementing all the little features and enhancements.
