SuperBeam 2018-19 changes

Change log: | 2018-19 . 2017 ... -2001

A note to visitors: We try very hard to produce reliable software but occasionally problems surface, and when they do we rectify them as soon as possible. Each release comes with a 'Latest information' file that details all the changes (except for the most minor) made in each build. Our experience is that our users prefer the candid approach to one of denial and slipstreamed changes. We operate low price subscription update schemes for our programs which keep users up to date during the period of their subscription.

Release 7.19c, 16 April 2019

  • Fixes Windows XP incompatibility introduced into 7.19a. Please note that maintaining XP compatibility in future releases is not guaranteed: some things are in our control but our programs use several bought-in code libraries whose authors no longer guarantee XP compatibility. Microsoft officially withdrew support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014.
  • The new page heading designer now adds Undo and Redo buttons.
  • In the page heading designer you can now move an item by clicking on it in the preview pane, then pressing Ctrl+Up/Down/Left/Right. The item is moved by the grid increment set at the bottom of the designer.
  • Overline spacing has been increased slightly on PDFs
  • If you added bearings to a beam then deleted them, they continued to appear on the Project Summary until you saved and reloaded the project - fixed.

Release 7.19b, 17 March 2019

This addresses three small issues in 7.19a:

  • Copy allocations could incorrectly default to blank - fixed
  • For new installs, the default font sizes have been changed from 10/11/12 to 9/10/11.
  • When updating from a pre-2019 release, your previous heading, but updated to the new svg format, should be selected but wasn't always - fixed.
