Bubble Thought Orientation:
- This was very thoughtful implementation I must say! Imagine you selected round or square thought bubble to place and you want to place it at the the end of the image then thought direction could be a problem and so this let's you change that.
all you have to do is, click the icon as depicted in below image and it will change that orientation for you, amazing right?
