I decided to skip version 2.3.1 which was available in French only (see the EPSITEC
web site if you are looking for a French version, named CrÃ©sus Documents, but basically the same as Creative Docs .NET).
Check out version 2.3.2
Daniel improved the page and layer thumbnails and included drag and drop to reorganize them; pressing the CTRL or SHIFT key while dragging a thumbnail creates a copy of the page or layer. To speed things up, the miniatures are regenerated asynchronously.
Zooming with the scroll wheel has also become much more intuitive. The point of focus for the zoom is now always under the mouse; you no longer need to think about how Creative Docs .NET will zoom the document in and out: point and zoom, done.
Scaling arrows and rounded corners maintains the propoprtions.
And for all of you who are still using Windows 2000, I finally fixed the problem which prevented Creative Docs .NET to start on Windows 2000. For the programmers, a small hint: the SHELL32.DLL is said to export ILCombine
and others, starting from version 5.00 of the DLL, yet in my experience, this is not always the case on Windows 2000 SP4. Some users on the net solved the problem by importing the entry point using
, but this did not work for me. So I reimplemented the missing IL functions in C#.
[note: IL has nothing to do with intermediate language but refers to a SHELL32 structure known as ITEMIDLIST
, used to describe a path to a file or folder]
