Better Support for High Resolution Displays

Worksheet Crafter 2019.1 now comes with better support for high resolution displays. This covers both modern notebooks and external 4K displays. In both cases the upper toolbar is now larger and thus easier to access. Further more various dialogs and icons have been adjusted to work better on these displays.

New Symbols

We extended the symbol drop down list in the upper text formatting toolbar with a set of additional useful symbols. You fill now find symbols for “more or equal”, “less or equal”, a degree sign and various checked and unchecked boxes in there:

Fill Background for Speech Bubble

The background of the speech bubble can now optionally be filled with white background. This allows you to place the bubble on colored background without causing the text to be less readable. Here is an example where the bubble is placed on top of an image:

Various Improvements to Text Tables

We applied multiple improvements to text tables to simplify their usage:

  • Applying formatting to empty table cells is now supported and does correctly work together with Undo/Redo
  • When undoing or redoing font size changes, the text table could previously enlarge columns unnecessarily. This has been fixed in the new version.
  • Numberings and lists are now properly supported inside text tables
  • Worksheet Crafter now makes sure that you can’t accidentally paste tables inside tables.

More Accurate Print Preview

The print preview now provides a closer match the final print. Both the spellchecker warning lines and invisible layout lines are now hidden in the print preview.

Improved Usability of Equation Editor

We improved the usability of the equation editor by adding a finer undo/redo support to the editor. Additionally, when selecting a formula from a drop down menu it will now not replace the existing formula anymore, but extend it. This way you can’t accidentally override your formula.

Any many more improvements

  • The new Worksheet Crafter now properly detects if a template file is corrupted and warns you about this.
  • When loading worksheets with a zero file size, the new version now correctly detects this and shows you a warning.
  • Exporting PDF file can not override existing worksheet files anymore, even if you accidentally chose a worksheet file as target for the PDF export. Worksheet Crafter now assume that you accidentally chose the worksheet file as target and saves the PDF file separately.
  • When using handwriting in combination with justified text alignment, the letters can’t get truncated at the right border of the text item anymore.
  • The worksheet marketplace will now work better with unstable internet connection where establishing the connection takes very long
  • … and many small improvements more
