Fabrie Quick Operations



In addition to shortcut keys, Fabrie also provides some less obvious quick operations that can help improve document operation efficiency. Let's take a look together:

Document Quick Operations



Quick Document Rename: Double-click the document name to quickly enter edit mode, where you can delete or modify the document name.



Quick Whiteboard Export: Click "Export as PDF" in the drop-down menu to quickly export all whiteboard content in bulk (yes, using whiteboard frames to manage whiteboard content in Fabrie is very convenient!).



Quick Document Copy: Click "Create Document Copy" in the drop-down menu to quickly create a copy of the current document (including whiteboard and table content, the new copy belongs to the project where the original document is located).



One-Click Whiteboard Restore Ratio: Click the scaling ratio number in the lower-right corner of the whiteboard to quickly restore it to 100% scaling ratio, so that each new whiteboard object can have a better display effect.



One-Click Whiteboard Show Global: Click the "Show All Content" button in the lower-right corner of the whiteboard (the hidden button will automatically expand when the mouse moves to the mini-map), and the whiteboard will automatically adjust to an appropriate scaling ratio to display all current whiteboard content.



One-Click Document Full-Screen: Click the "Enter Full Screen" button in the lower-right corner of the whiteboard (the hidden button will automatically expand when the mouse moves to the mini-map, and this button will change to "Exit Full Screen" after entering full screen mode) to quickly enter document full-screen mode, which helps create a more immersive document creation experience.



One-Click Expand/Collapse Table: The table is a powerful tool for organizing whiteboard content. Click the table toggle button in the upper-right corner of the whiteboard to quickly expand or collapse the table.



One-Click Table Full-Screen: Tables are usually the supporting role of whiteboards, but by clicking the "Enter Full Screen" button in the upper-right corner of the table, the table can cover the entire whiteboard and become the protagonist, making data management even more handy!
