Featured Changes

Draw Cards Using 1-9 Keys

You can now draw one or more cards from a selected deck using the 1-9 keys on your keyboard (i.e. pressing the 5 key to draw 5 cards). The cards will be drawn directly to your hand. Cards drawn via hotkey will be automatically added to the active selection.

Context Menu Updates

A number of improvements have been made to the context menu:

  • Hotkeys for actions are now displayed directly in the context menu
  • The hotkey P has been added to Pickup/Drop currently selected cards
  • Users will now need to confirm a delete action by clicking a separate sub-menu option to help avoid mistaken asset deletions
  • Duplicate quantity has been removed from the top level menu and added as a sub-menu
  • Menu options have been reorganized to be more logical
  • Actions that are not appropriate for the current selection have been removed
  • The color scheme of the menu has been updated to be more visually pleasing

Automatic Image Compression

Experimental support has been added to automatically compress images that are added to a game session. As a result, the Dragon Drop file size limit has been increased to 10MB from 3MB.

Bugfixes and Improvements

  • Right clicking with your mouse will now always pan the view no matter if you are clicking on the table or on an asset
  • Prevent the cookie policy/terms of service popup from appearing as frequently
  • Correct an issue where assets could sometimes become frozen for all but one player
  • Fix an issue where deck rename messages were being sent to all connected devices
  • Fixed an issue where after a game layout is loaded auto depth sorting is not successfully applied
  • Improve zoom level determination for hover zoom
  • When duplicating components the new copies will now be automatically added to the active selection for easy interaction
  • The color and size of the context menu button and selection line have been improved to work well for all color schemes
  • A number of fixes have been made to make CTRL click selection more consistent across all asset types
  • Jitter has been removed as a top level diagnostic until further investigation can be completed
  • We will now display a warning if the web app is loaded on a mobile device; this warning can be bypassed by the user if desired
  • Support to display an initial carousel of video/text content when the web app is loaded to be used for news, new user tutorials, etc.
