New keyboard shortcuts: use TAB or INSERT to add new sub-stencils

Now you can add new child stencils using TAB or INSERT (when you have a parent stencil selected).

Stencils depth-order is now saved on editing

When you are editing overlapping stencils, SpiderScribe will now remember their last depth-orders (the latest added stencils were always on top before). To change a stencil’s z-order simply click on it – it will bring it to the top. If you are in a view only mode, it will still bring selected stencils to the front, but will not save their new depth position.


New Feature: Hide/Edit Image Titles

We just added the possibility to edit the image title and even hide it entirely.  The image title serves also as a download link for the original image, so when it is hidden, you can still access the original image through the stencil menu (top right).


New stencil background colors

We just extended the number of available background colors for our stencils!


SpiderScribe added to Google Chrome Web Store

SpiderScribe is now available on Google Chrome Web Store – you can check it here.


Featured map: “Exotic World Festivals (2012)”

Check this colorful SpiderScribe map with visual references on over thirty exotic festivals around the world.


SSL encryption protection added to all plans

We just added the 256-bit encryption protection to SpiderScribe – you will be able to notice now the “https://” in your login page address. SLL was added to all the plans, including the free ones.

SpiderScribe.net is out of beta!

Today, after almost a year in beta, we are finally releasing SpiderScribe.net!

SpiderScribe.net stays free for EDUs, ORGs and non-commercial use (we know it has been very popular with schools) and the commercial plans are highly affordable. “Pro” plan is designed for individuals (you can still share maps with anybody) and “Business” is for companies, with a separate domain and centralized management of users.

SpiderScribe.net is a great tool for brainstorming. You can also easily connect SpiderScribe.net maps to 5pm – a popular project management app.

With your support we will continue adding new features and improving SpiderScribe.net, making it even better!
