Improved Worksheet Marketplace

The worksheet marketplace user interface has been improved, making it easier for you to find suitable worksheets:

Improvements for Uploading Worksheets to the Market Place

We applied a few improvements to the worksheet upload process, to make it easier for you.

When selecting a category, Worksheet Crafter now opens a dialog in which you can choose the category from a category tree. The worksheet names of each category are immediately visible, so that you can directly spot whether your worksheet would fit in there.

Additionally, if you try uploading a worksheet with an unknown image then Worksheet Crafter now warns use. It will show you which images are potentially problematic, so that you can fix them.

File Preview on Mac

On Mac you will now see previews images of your worksheets directly in the Finder application:

Printing a Range of Pages only

You can now choose to print specific pages only when printing your document. Previously you could only choose between all pages and the current (single) page.

More Space for the Clipart Browser

The clipart browser now provides a button in its upper right corner. Pressing this button maximizes it to the full sidebar height, minimizing the other sidebar elements. This way you can temporarily get significantly more space for the clipart preview.
