  • Project update moved to the Project Template menu. This reduced the total number of steps from nine to eight.
  • Bug Fixes
  • Previously if the user was creating their first batch file and returned to the main menu the “Edit/Run” menu was not available until the program was restarted.
  • In some circumstances the “Save” option was not displaying in red when the batch file had not bee saved. The warning message would still display if the user attempted to leave the screen without saving.
  • Previously it was possible to select to view the output in a browser window, even if no web page was asked to be created.
  • When choosing images it was not possible to use the individual image option then change to a group image option.

  • Option to change directory views available. Default view is similar to the “browse” option in Windows, this however is limited, in that it does not return a user to a specific directory. A new “Directory” option is less graphical, but will allow a user to quickly return to a specific directory, which is helpful when selecting a directory near the current location. (This choice can be found in the “Option” selection from the main menu)
