The zoom function will make it very easy to use on any phone. I have multiple zoom levels by repeat tapping on zoom button kind of like the combat speed button does. Will have 1x, 2x, 4x, and 8x. Panning is then done by dragging the magenta selection square around in the preview area in bottom right of editor. It all works well from a workflow perspective.

That was way more complicated than I was thinking it was going to be, but it is working now :P Yeah! I have the drawing and scaling working correctly for the four different sized tokens (normal, tall, wide, large) and on different screen resolutions (aka devices and there many screen sizes and dpi).

I still need to add the 4 zoom sizes or maybe just 2 or 3. Also need to add the pencil sizes (1x and 2x) and the 4 user colors and the color picker dialog.

Great progress there - I see myself having a blast building adventures and at the same time creating graphic ressources for them from the very same place.

I have the zooms working (1x, 2x, 4x, 8x) and the pencil sizes (1x and 2x). I think I will stop there for now and add more later. The next feature will be to come up with a color picker dialog and 4 user colors. I may also need to add some more common comfort features in art editing programs like copy, move, delete, layers, merge down, etc.

So that is the last of the editors. Now it is time to work on lots of polish, proper ui buttons (all the text buttons are just place holders), publishing to beta channels on Google Play and iOS App Store, and lots of testing :lol:
