This is the first post hopefully of many which we will use to keep you posted on how the brand new version of formatpixel is going. We will refer to it as fp2, it’s dev name, but as we have been building we are realising that it’s becoming a very different tool to what formatpixel has been. As such we are considering launching fp2 as a sister site rather than an update for formatpixel’s current system.
We’ve been developing fp2 for a while now and started from scratch. Every part and feature is being built from the ground up. Already we have addressed some of your comments about fonts and are pleased to tell you that fp2 will support multi-fonts. Also the ability to rotate any object. All this is done through an enhanced user tools. Another new feature is to allow each page to be different sizes within the same project. This means you could start with a square page, then move on to a rectangle and so on.
If you would like to be considered as a beta tester then please let us know either through this blog or contact us at team[at]formatpixel.com with the subject line ‘fp2 beta’.
To all existing users of formatpixel, the new release will be available to you all without the need of re-register

So there you have it, our first post about what we are up to! We know that it’s been a while with any sort of update and we have been banging on about a new version so we hope this post will show you that things are moving along
