The new interface has been designed with several objectives in mind:
- maintain the philosophy and concept of xflr5’s interface, so that users may easily find their way in the new application
- simplify the organisation of menus and buttons to reduce the number of clicks needed to achieve desired actions
- simplify access to objects and curves, and facilitate the identification of curves in the various graphs
To achieve the third objective, graph curves have been linked to the legends and to the object explorers. Clicking an item in one view will highlight it in the other two views.
A more comprehensive list of the new features is given in the Release Notes, and the main features have been highlighted in the demo videos.
