Text styles



Text is the core of content expression, Fabrie provides a rich text style, supporting font style, text size, colour, background colour, boldness, italic, underline, strikethrough, alignment, hyperlinks and other adjustments to meet a variety of content layout needs, making text expression more vivid and effective!

Select the style you want to copy, click the "Format Painter" option in the editing toolbar, and then click the object to quickly adjust it to the target style. Moreover, Fabrie's Format Painter supports style modification for any editable text object, including sticky notes, shapes, and text boxes. Give it a try now!



Colour palette



Thanks to the colour palette, the graphic and text on the Fabrie whiteboard can be rendered in any colour style and shade, offering endless possibilities for mood boards, sketch cards and other scenarios!





We collect and organize web links at every stage of design research and collaboration, and with the Whiteboard's support for automatic URL parsing and preview, it's even easier to clip, organize, and quote web material on Fabrie! The following are the currently supported link preview methods.

- The Whiteboard supports parsing the title, description and image of the web link after pasting the URL, and automatically generating a preview card, which can be selected in the Whiteboard to quickly access the web page through the context menu "Visit link" or "Copy link address" for sharing.



- Whiteboard supports identifying and parsing image URL links (generally those with .jpg/png/webp suffix) and then automatically displaying the image. After selecting the preview image, you can cut the image through "Crop" in the context menu, "Updated pictures" to refresh the loaded image, "Visit link" to access the original link, and "Copy link address" for sharing.



Bulk styling for similar objects



As the number of sticky notes and text on the whiteboard increases, it can be visually cluttered. Don't worry, you can customise the style in bulk by multi-selecting the content object, with font size, alignment and background colour all in one step!

Multiple objects management



Group



The grouping feature is designed to allow you to combine or disassemble multiple whiteboard objects by selecting them and then grouping or ungrouping them in the edit bar, so that they can be dragged or laid out as a whole.



Resizing



Resizing is a common need when typesetting rich whiteboard content. Selecting multiple whiteboard objects in Fabrie allows you to quickly change the size of all objects by dragging and moving them around.



Image auto layout



We have added a brand new feature to our whiteboard - support for "Auto layout" of multiple images. This means you can easily add multiple images to the whiteboard and have them organized to better present your ideas and concepts.

Our Auto layout feature provides two layout options:

- "Center layout" (shortcut: Shift+1), which arranges all images around the central axis to form a symmetrical whole visually;
- "Waterfall layout" (shortcut: Shift+2), which arranges the images vertically on the whiteboard according to their order, making your ideas and concepts clearer and easier to understand.

Using our Auto layout feature is very simple. Simply select the multiple images you want to add to the whiteboard, then click the "Auto Layout" button in the editing toolbar and choose the layout option you want to use. The rest of the work is left to our whiteboard!

Whether you are brainstorming mood boards, giving presentations, or developing design collaboration plans, using our whiteboard's Auto layout feature will help you more easily organize and showcase your ideas and concepts. Try out this new feature and see what new possibilities it can bring to your work!



Alignment



Whiteboard objects can participate in typographic alignment as a whole after multi-selection or creating groups, with shortcuts to fine tune them for OCD.



Select by object type



Not able to sort the objects on your whiteboard when you have a mixed layout? Don't worry, just select all and filter by object type in the edit bar (e.g. text, base graphic, file, etc.) to quickly sort and manage whiteboard objects in bulk.



Transform objects



Basic object transformation



Fabrie Whiteboard supports object type transformations of created basic shapes to easily and quickly convert the desired content style, with the following common scenarios.

- Conversion between base shapes, such as the quick conversion of circles to rectangles.
- Conversion of base shapes to graphic objects, such as converting rectangular shapes to sticky notes.



Transformation of shapes and images(creating mask)



Images are a common expression medium on the whiteboard. Fabrie Whiteboard supports object conversion of shapes and images, filling the various shapes with images as content to achieve certain special effects, such as: adjusting transparency, adjusting borders, free stretching, rich text editing, changing shapes. Ideal for flexible and personalised content element typesetting scenarios, let's take a look at the commonly used functions and scenarios.

- Add a new basic shape from the toolbar, with support for conversion to images and selection of images from local or web clipper for filling.
- Upload images inside the whiteboard, with support for conversion to shapes, at which point the images are automatically nested in the outer frame of the shapes, and the images are supported to be replaced from from a local or web clipper.
- Once the image is filled, it can be freely stretched, e.g. an oval can be freely stretched to a circle, thus meeting more flexible layout requirements.



Set file cover in a snap



With the file open, you can enter screenshot mode by selecting "Capture file cover" from the right-click menu, or from the drop-down menu next to the file name. In this way, you can capture the cover to scale and put the table in the cover as well.
