Here's a recap of the features and improvements we shipped in April.

Select multiple layers

You can now select multiple layers simultaneously. Hold cmd + click to select multiple individual layers or hold shift + click to select a range of layers.

With multiple layers selected, you can now edit any properties or variants shared by all selected layers. You can also sort or drag+drop multiple layers simultaneously.

Hold cmd or shift and click to select multiple layers.

New shadow tool

We shipped a fancypants shadow tool with better visualisation for more direct manipulation.

Wrap / unwrap layers

You can now unwrap a group of layers, which deletes the selected parent but keeps its children intact. This also works for multiple layer groups simultaneously. Hold ctrl and click a component to wrap the selected layers in that component. Hold ctrl+alt and click a component to wrap each of the selected layers in that component.

Webfont support

Modulz now supports webfonts. Upload a .otf, .woff or .woff2 file and you can use it in your project. Your webfonts will also render in your public prototypes.
