Improved user interface
Switch 13 has some nice UI improvements:
- Invisible grid
Say goodbye to sloppy flows! Flow elements now automatically snap to an invisible grid, making it easier to align them.
- Keep groups when exporting flows
Switch flow groups can now be exported and imported, preserving group hierarchy.
- New icons for flow elements
Eventually, we also got tired of the Windows 95 style ;-)
But we made our new icons more useful too: auto-managed folders now have a padlock icon, making the difference between auto-managed folders and user-manage folders crystal clear on first sight.
