The areas which have been improved most are related to the text box and text line object. The text styles can be applied directly from the ribbon, by choosing in a gallery of available styles. The same is true for the fonts.
If you need to define your own styles, simply click on the styles tab, then select either the paragraph or the character style sub-tab and copy/modify or create your styles.
I've also added support for WMF/EMF (Windows Metafiles) import. Selecting such an image when drawing an image object will work; internally, the image is converted to a bitmap with the WMF/EMF specified DPI resolution. This can lead to jaggy images when printing.
As always, please let me know if something does not work properly for you. Thanks!
Just wondering if it is possible to use .NET 2.0 at the moment? I have 2.0 installed, and it seems the installer won't let me install the software? is there backward compatiblity issues? or should this still work?
Running Creative Docs .NET version 1.8.x on .NET 2.0 should technically be feasible. The problem is that the installer currently uses a hardwired piece of logic to determine if .NET is installed. And it won't recognize 2.0 as a valid framework.
So, if you have access to a PC with .NET 1.1 installed, you should be able to install Creative Docs .NET there. You can then simply copy the "Creative Docs .NET" folder from "Program Files" over to the .NET 2.0 machine. It should work...
Creative Docs .NET 2.0 will be .NET 2.0 based, but we have no precise planning for that yet. It will probably be released in summer 2006.
