Tools For ProShow (Update)

This new update brings an additional 57 changes to the tools since the release of version 33a. A few of the changes were made to improve and ease the conversion of the worksheet to OpenOffice Format.

Layer Information was brought back from the change to Layer: Aspect/Dimensions so that it remains consistent with the Slide Information tool. That is, it provides aspect information. Additionally, the user can now provide their own list layers aspects they use regularly. This saves re-entering the information layer. So, the Layer Information section now has 4 separate Layer Settings to choose from. These settings are available for use by the following tools: Findings; Width & Height,Zoom; Text Box Aspect; Cropping Tool; and Layer: Outlines/Frames.

Those tools can quickly and easily switch between the various Layer aspects provided. It might not sound like much but, the increased flexibility makes it easier to make changes and perform the necessary analyses.

The release of ProShow Version 9 brought with it a change in how Zoom is handled. When Photodex implemented the FOLLOW FILTERS, it quickly discovered how broken the zoom function was within ProShow. This was very apparent when you tried to use zoom modifiers or for when you wanted to know exactly what a layer’s width and/or zoom was. Those considerations changed considerably when tilt was involved. So, Photodex made some significant changes to its handling of Zoom within ProShow.

A number of changes were made to the tools which deal with Zoom in some fashion so they are compatible with the changes in Release 9. The changes particularly affected Layer: Outlines/Frames and Modifier Zoom. These tools now provide backward compatibility to ProShow versions prior to 9, should you need that capability.

These changes are now available.

OpenOffice is a free Office suite that includes a worksheet with similar capabilities to those of Microsoft’s Excel. Both the EXCEL (XLSM) and OPENOFFICE (ODS) formats of the worksheets are made available.
