Navigate your Ideas with Mischief

Mischief 2.1 introduces a new way of ideating on an infinite canvas with Pins! 

The addition of Pins allows easy navigation, transforming the infinite canvas into a map of ideas. You can drop points of interest on the canvas, indexing your sketches to quickly jump between views, create sequences, or zoom out at any time to see the full picture.  You can also reorder Pins and instantly export all of them as thumbnail images.

Mike Miles, visual facilitator and founder of Visually Speaking: “Mischief is my go to tool for ideation and illustration.  It’s just like a sketchbook or flipchart in an office but it helps to form ideas so people can visualise what is going on, and you can build on it and share it easily. One of the best things about Mischief is the infinite canvas, being able to go into the milky way of detail is fantastic. You can drop a pin over a certain area, go in close and zoom back out and see the image in its entirety. The Pins offer a really good way of navigating your thoughts and the freedom that it brings gives the user the ability to be more creative.”

Mischief 2.1 is available now for purchase on the Mac App Store and Mischief Online Store.
For existing customers of the full version, Mischief 2.1 is a free update.

    The feature is a great step forward. With some easy changes you could improve it even further. I wrote you two emails via the contact form.

    I totally agree, Mischief is more than a drawing tool, too us, it is more of a brainstorming sketch book.
    Thanks for the update, the pinning feature is awesome - *LIKE*! :D

    Thank you for this update! Just tried it, and it just proved to be a very useful feature to have, when you know... you have like an infinite canvas and all...XD

    There is nothing more frustrating then getting lost in an infinite universe. You guys would make Henry the Navigator proud--there is only so much scrolling a sane man can take. Thanks for the Pins--consider me a confirmed Pinhead (muahahaha!) Sorry! It was there and I just could not leave it be!-cat

    Great. It´s like you have been reading my mind. The possibility to save brush settings for the individual pins (Brush size would be sufficient) would be the cherry on top.
