As an early Christmas gift, an updated version of Design Room ONE is now available for download. In the three weeks since its first public release, we have got great feedback from users - feedback that we have used for improving the usability of the tool.
The diagram toolbar now has an improved appearance and contains a new zoom slider. This slider makes it easier to quickly zoom diagrams if you don't have a mouse with a scroll wheel. You can also edit the zoom level text to set a custom zoom level (all the way out to 10% to fit even the biggest diagrams).
The menu for selecting active global configuration has also been improved so it now only shows the global configurations that contain the local configuration of the currently open design. This makes it significantly easier to select the correct global configuration.
Design Room ONE is not just the web application, but an equally important part is its plugin for RSAD. In this release we have made several small, but important, usability improvements to make it easier to create requirement links from RSAD. One example is that it's now possible to create a requirement link by dragging a model element from the Project Explorer and drop it onto a requirement in the Requirement Explorer view. You can even drag multiple elements at the same time in order to create multiple links quickly.
Watch this 3-minute video to see these features in action! As always, your comments and suggestions are very welcome, and is an important input when we plan the future development of Design Room ONE.
The Design Room ONE development team now wishes you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The next release of Design Room ONE is planned for around January 23.
