This entire release is dedicated to a ground-up rewrite of the Modus launcher. The new launcher is faster, more flexible, and provides a necessary foundation for future features. It's not just prettier—it also comes with an upgraded floor plan editor, a newly-enhanced workflow for exporting line drawings, and a brand new application called Modus Photo.
Three of the new features in the Modus launcher have blog posts of their own: The upgraded floor plan editor, the new line drawings, and Modus Photo. Be sure to check out each of them as they contain pertinent information and brand new tutorial videos.
We thank each of you for your support and hope you enjoy all the new features.
Here's a first look at the all new Modus Launcher.
Because so much of this is new, we've created several new Modus launcher videos. One of them is a high-level overview of the launcher including some of the redesigned sections in the Home tab, the new Files tab, and the new Help tab. Check it out below.
Organize your files better than ever before in the new Files browser. View files in list or grid view, right click for options like copy, rename and delete, hold Control or Shift to select multiple files, and drag and drop files and folders. We cover the entire Files tab in our Modus launcher overview video posted above.
The editor has received major quality-of-life improvements. You can now free-form draw a room, control angle and length snapping, and trace over a reference floor plan image to rapidly recreate complex rooms!

You can now annotate your line drawings with dimensions and notes. The line drawing renderer has also been updated to better handle cases where the camera is partially inside an object, previously causing that object to be invisible in that view.
