Post by simonB » Tue Jul 09, 2013 10:59 am

This was formerly a beta, here's the changelog since December:
_______________________________________________________________________________

********FIXED BUGS********
_______________________________________________________________________________

If you make a manual mapping or edit inside the console preset window, this is not saved until the software is closed, so if Suite2 crashes, you lose all your edits
------------------------------------
showfiles are not being written to SD card
------------------------------------
problem with midicon wheel
------------------------------------
DMX in wasn't working with the console
------------------------------------
- problems with batch delete fixed (check boxen sometimes disappear, batch delete could crash Suite 2 under some circumstances)
------------------------------------
- double clicking in standalone editor "pages" could crash software -> fixed
------------------------------------
- pre programed switch "cycle movement" was more like a sausage -> fixed
------------------------------------
- some problems with reading/writing from/to standalone memory fixed
------------------------------------
-there was a huge delay when closing the stand alone window which has been fixed
------------------------------------
crash fixed when writing stand alone to DE3
------------------------------------
When you control+right click and drag a button, you have the following message:
'Do you want to move the button …. or copy the content of …. inside ….'
Sometimes the options were Yes, No, Cancel and sometimes the options are Move, Duplicate, Cancel
Also, the French version was also not in French
------------------------------------
Console designer bugs:
-default component size was wrong after adding a custom component
-'save as' name dialog said Annuler instead of cancel
-possibility to have no image for a component background or button/off
-objects were resized when you made a right side alignment
-wasn't possible to create a +/- button, but possible to edit
-'do you want to save?' prompt missing when closing the designer
-if you canceled adding a component, it still added an empty component
-The list was not sorted alphabetically by default when choosing a component
-When choosing a component, if you sorted it alphabetically, it put the upper case first and then sorted the lower case after
-text was scrolling even through the component size was larger than the text
-it took too long to align text in a good position
------------------------------------
console
-Load a console into suite 2
-change the names of some buttons
-remove the console
-create a new console
-the old names were kept instead of using the default names of the new console
------------------------------------
console builder: if you make a multi-selection, it was not possible to change parameters unless they were originally the same
------------------------------------
console builder: if you change the height of a component so it's higher than the canvas size, it was not possible to select it
------------------------------------
stand alone window: interface name didn't change on the interface tab when renamed
------------------------------------
bugs with the chaser effect on 'random' and 'random flash' options
-'size' property didn't always work properly
-the effect was not long enough, so it didn't always look random
------------------------------------
console page component fixed
------------------------------------
page setup wizard->if you uncheck 'add page to master page' , the page was still added
------------------------------------
page settings->patch->pan tilt settings
when the grid zoom was set to 150%, wasn't possible to move or resize the area
------------------------------------
automatically generated color effects were only applied to the first beam of a multibeam fixture
------------------------------------
show MIDI range in info column of console settings instead of 0-255
------------------------------------
Change 'USB STICK' text to 'STICK' because you can access it over Ethernet now
------------------------------------
color manager->time. When a fade or hold time multi-selection is made, all times are still changed
------------------------------------
the page window was scrolling to the top when DMX was enabled for a page
------------------------------------
if a channel assigned to a palette was changed to an easy step channel, the channel was displayed as 'EasyStep with palette', however the palette information was not copied correctly
------------------------------------
color manager->selected step wasn't applied to the selected steps, only 1 step
------------------------------------
It wasn't possible to remove an icon from a button
------------------------------------
The button name is now displayed in a compressed button icon when there is no icon
------------------------------------
a few missing translations corrected
------------------------------------
If you have a lot of buttons compressed as external list and this list was bigger then the screen height, it wasn't possible to scroll or make the list wider
------------------------------------
button phasing didn't work on certain channel types (e.g. gobo, color)
------------------------------------
when you recorded a cycle in list mode, it said 'after end' even though the elements were not after the end
------------------------------------
page settings->patch->Insert a chosen scanlibrary fixture
If you made a multiselection and drag, it was sometimes possible to drag some fixtures on top of others
------------------------------------
cycle timeline zoom level wasn't saved
------------------------------------
bug when changing an easytime block length to 0.50 as blocks must be in the range of 0.04s
------------------------------------
