OrteliusOverview

Ortelius is a full-featured vector drawing application especially for map design. Ortelius allows you to draw directly with features such as roads, rivers, coastlines, buildings, symbols and contours. Ortelius is known for its unique "connectable tracks" and expert stacked styles that make drawing tedious map features easy. Every object supports attribute data that can be referenced by text labels, and everything can be directly drawn and positioned simply by dragging and dropping. Though Ortelius is emphatically not a GIS, it does have minimal support for importing shapefiles (developers note georeferencing and re-projections are not spurted). Powerful and extensive text features give you a fine degree of control over labelling. Create your own styles and symbols or use any of the many hundreds built-in. Unlimited layers and layer groups keep your work organized.

Changes
Support for Apple's new Photos app in the Image Browser with OS 10.10.3+ (Note: iPhotos is still supported on OS 10.9 and older, but there may be a gap in iPhoto/Photos support on OS 10.10.1-10.10.2 due to minor OS X changes).
Shift-drag now constrains the alignment of dragged objects. Holding the Shift-key while dragging an object constrains it to 45° alignments of its original position. This is particularly useful in conjunction with the Option (alt) -key to copy an object while maintaining its alignment with the original.
Use Command-key to select and/or deselect multiple objects on click-through (Note: this update removes the ability to select multiple object using Shift-key, as that is now used to constrain object alignment, which is consistent with using Shift to constrain alignment and rotation throughout the app).
Command key now required to be pressed to move the origin point of an object to prevent accidental changes when dragging an object.
