proTools

Tools for 4D buttons & android texts

 

Introduction

 

Tired using photoshop for each button, one by one, then update folders by hand ?

 

Use proTools and create projects, attach paths to your 4D applications resources folders, import your project’s buttons, create banks of buttons based on icons and a set of parameters, and… use our buttons generator engine.

 

Finally update one or all of your resources folders in one click !

 

You can have projects for generic buttons and for specific buttons to each database. You prepare different projects for your buttons and you test them in a snap. Really astonishing!

 

 

You will be able to easily manage:

 

  • a repository for all your picts, icons, images, in one place

  • banks to create and store sets of “4 states” buttons (in 4D format)

  • links and update all your 4D database products in one click.

  • a repository of styled texts, like “about” and “releases” notes, and convert them in a android compatible tagged text for android xml files, and Play Store

 

 

proTools is provided filled with material design icons set from google, and use material design color palette. Coming soon : create icons, buttons, toggles, for android.

Texts tool

With proTools, you will create as many text files you need for your android project, keeping them in the same place. Then, a convertor is included to generate the tagged text for the xml file format, and for the Play Store.

 

F text

 

The main useful functionality of that screen is to store texts for sure, but to convert styled text to android tagged text (on the right).
