Key Features: 🚀

  • Drawing Boxes: Easily draw and manage multiple boxes with the new 'Draw Cursor' option and an 'Add Region' button. Each box's size is visibly indicated, making your annotations more precise and informative.
  • Saving Changes: After drawing, a dialogue popup will provide options to apply your annotations to just the current screenshot or all browser variants of this screenshot.
  • Updating Compared Screenshots: Annotations on compared screenshots will trigger a re-run of the comparison, ensuring that the current and future builds reflect your specified regions of interest.
  • Visibility of Annotations: Control the visibility of your annotations in both parallel and landscape views with a new toggle, default set to off, ensuring a clean visual field when not needed.
  • Tooltip Information: When the 'Annotations' toggle is on, hovering over a box displays a tooltip with detailed information, including the dimensions of the box and its status as an ignored or selected area.
  • Applicable for Every Project Type: This feature is compatible with every project type, making the handling of dynamic data very efficient in cases where code-based ignore/select is not supported. 

These features provide unparalleled control over visual testing, helping you deliver flawless user experiences. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to innovate with SmartUI!
