More Details and How to Access the New Features

Access the Pitchfork Drawing Tool

When there are multiple similar tools, long-click on the pointer tool icon on the pointer tool toolbar to see available options.


Faster widget launching, widgets now open next to the active tab 

Previously, launching a widget from the left bar would require you to place the widget in the layout. Now, widgets will appear immediately next to the active tab. Widgets can then be repositioned by dragging and dropping the tab.
