This project is for a re-designed user interface of an existing open source svg editor that can be found here: [url removed, login to view]
I have all the files for this editor on my server and have been able to incorporate this working editor and additional functionality that is not native to the open source project, into my website.
The project need to simplify the interface using my design and all of the existing code from the open source files. All of the functionality of the software is intact and working, however I just need to change the look of the buttons and placement, etc.
It is my intention to simplify the editor experience for end users that are not computer savvy, thus the new interface is my hope that it will be more understandable and lower the learning curve of use (see attached layout).
On the left of my revised layout, there will be a toolbar that has four boxes of tools, all existing functions in the editor.
One function that the editor does not have currently is the ability to select some text and edit the type in an entry box, rather than on the canvas. Hence the addition of the "Quick Text Edit" field, that would allow the user to change the selected text easier.
I would like this project completed within two weeks of bid acceptance or sooner.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
I wanted to clarify details, as some bidders have thought that I have already incorporated the Redesigned interface with the SVG program, this is not the case.
The new interface is one where I designed as a mock up only in a program similar to PhotoShop, it is not incorporated into the existing SVG editor.
This is what this project is intended, to take the Existing Stock SVG Editor and modify the code and functionality that would correspond with my new interface layout.
I can provide the icon set and the graphics in whatever format (png etc.) that is necessary.
There are also two other modifications needed, as shown in the Redesign Layout:
1) The existing editor does not have the Quick Edit feature, that is one of the more important features that I need to add. This would be a added function that when the user selects a block of text in the layout, that text would show up in the quick edit box and the user can easily type the new text in the quick edit box and the text would be updated in the layout accordingly.
2) I also need to add the Add Clipart and Add Image. (I do have some separate code that a previous programmer had created this function, but it is not incorporated into this editor)
In order to assist you in understanding what is involved in this project, it is suggested that you review the following:
