MS/Windows updates

MS/Windows: Current release: 3.2.20 (October 15, 2017)

Version 3.2.20 Allow additional lines of labeling in Image Gallery by using an "Image Gallery" field profile. Also, added "Add a copy of current record" to context menus in Image Gallery and Item Details..

Version 3.2.19 Order subset names alphabetically in the Select Subset menu.

Version 3.2.18 Fix bug with one-field edit window; couldn't scroll all the way to see the last line.

Version 3.2.17 Fix bug with subsets getting forgotten when they used "All text fields" choice in a condition.

Version 3.2.16 Major rewrite of Image Gallery implementation. Avoids sluggishness that was being reported with large collections..

Version 3.2.15 Fix bug with occasional incorrect horizontal alignment of Image Gallery images after window resizing from a different view..

Version 3.2.14 Fix bug with occasional incorrect initial image sizing in Image Viewer window.

Version 3.2.13 Fix occasional failure when resizing Image Gallery.

Version 3.2.12 Fix bug where program would hang when an X-link text contained multiple lines.

Version 3.2.11 Prevent two copies of Recollector from starting. When the program is invoked when it is already running, bring the main window of the already-running program to the front. Do not start a second copy of Recollector at the same time.

Version 3.2.10 Fix bugs with image selection file dialog and drag-and-drop when Image Directory had an unusual form.

Version 3.2.9 Add support for checkboxes and spell checking in the editor.

Version 3.2.8 Fix bug with subsets that included IS EMPTY or IS NOT EMPTY condition.

Version 3.2.7 Fix bug with printing reports when text contains unmeasured characters in Windows' glyph tables..

Version 3.2.6 Put timestamps in page footers of all printed output.

Version 3.2.5 Fix bugs with the run-from-thumb-drive capability. This was broken in the new version. Now it works again.

Version 3.2.4 Some small cosmetic enhancements. In the editor, allow proportional fonts and given an option for two-line high text-entry fields for image fields.

Version 3.2.3 A variety of small bug fixes.

Version 3.2.2 Fix for bug with trying to create an Image Directory when no image directory for the collection previously existed. Also, more thorough checking for preferences directory on startup.

Version 3.2.1 Small fix for managed-access handling of collections to guard against missing the latest updates made by another user.

Version 3.2.0 Formal (non-beta) release of the new Windows version of Recollector. A few small bug fixes from the last beta version. Some added memory efficiency in the Image Gallery display. Context menus added to Image Gallery and Item Details.

Version 3.1.6 (beta) Major new release: Full rewrite of the application, targeting Windows 10 and other recent versions of WIndows (Win 7 and Win 8). Major new features: Support of unicode; managed-access (support for group collaboration on a collection database).

Version 2.6.12 Fix bug with using file dialog to save files (for example, when copying from a backup) if you specify a filename but remove the filename extension. The default extension (e.g. ".xml") was not being appended correctly.

Version 2.6.11 Fix bug with trying to print a report when one or more records has absolutely no data to print. This can happen, for example, if you restrict the report to just include a single field and one or more records has missing data for that field. After the fix, records with no data at all to print are simply skipped.

Version 2.6.10 Fix bug with keyboard cursor keys going unresponsive from List View and Gallery View after opening an editor window. Also, small enhancements to layout: (1) Prevent the initial column number column in List View from changing width when you scroll within the window; (2) Add a small bit of whitespace at the left of the Item Details display, so the text doesn't rub up against the left-hand border.

Version 2.6.9 When not in auto-save mode, change the prompt "Save unsaved changes?" dialog to offer three choices (Yes/No/Cancel), rather than just two (Yes/No). This allows the user to back out of the cancel/exit operation.

Version 2.6.8 Put in auto-rotation for rotated JPEG images (typically from cell phones)..

Version 2.6.7 Add ability to have thumbnail images in the index page when generating a web site.

Version 2.6.6 Add ability to generate web site using PHP, rather than HTML, files.

Version 2.6.5 Fix minor bug with restore behavior: Failed when an earlier version of the target collection file wasn't in place.

Version 2.6.4 Fix problems when user specifies collection files or image files using network (UNC) paths, such as \\machine1\Users\smith\Desktop\abc.xml. Images did not display correctly in the Image Gallery and in image viewer windows in this case.

Version 2.6.3 Fix small bug with search subsets: Trying to create a search subset when a prior search subset was in effect did not always do the right thing.

Version 2.6.2 Add a template for mineral collections.

Version 2.6.1 Change to the internal format for marking sections of text as bold. This allows the plus sign (+) to be freely used in text, including having multiple adjacent plus signs (e.g. "A+++" as a condition value). This change involved bumping the internal collection version number (to 1.5), so the product minor version number has also been bumped from 2.5 to 2.6.

Version 2.5.13 Add ability to format sections of text as subscripts.

Version 2.5.12 Simplify creating W-links from visible text in the form of a URL. The Special Link Editor dialog will automatically start out, in this case, with W-link selected and the URL pre-filled-in..

Version 2.5.11 Fix recently introduced bug with printing from the Item Details window.

Version 2.5.10 Add ability to specify default values for fields. Beef up context menu on the list view, so that users can now also make a copy of the current record or delete the current record using the right-click context menu. Add a preference that causes the "Assign next 'ID #' value" button to be automatically pressed when adding a new record.

Version 2.5.9 Fix to a problem introduced with search subsets: report and web site generation could fail under certain conditions.

Version 2.5.8 Add support for a special number-type field, named Quantity* which acts as a multiplier when computing totals for currency-type fields. The product of the currency field's value times the value of Quantity* is used when computing totals in the Summary window and in the Currency Summary page of printed reports.

Version 2.5.7 Include files referenced in M-type and F-type links in the backup/restore capability.

Version 2.5.6 Allow M-type and F-type special hyperlinks to use simple filenames (rather than full path names), if the target file is located in the Image Directory folder. Also some extra bulletproofing to prevent start-up errors from causing program termination.

Version 2.5.5 Fixed recently introduced bug with password-protected collections not prompting properly for their password..

Version 2.5.4 Added the ability to select which fields are exported when exporting for the Recollector App.

Version 2.5.3 Added the ability to include jump-to hyperlinks to records in different collections (not just within the current collection). This is done using the R-type special hyperlink.

Version 2.5.2 A couple of minor bug fixes related to changes made in version 2.5.0.

Version 2.5.1 New feature: "Search Subsets". Allows user to quickly define a temporary subset whose condition is the specifications in the search dialog (string to search for, field(s) to search, whether or not to make the matching case-sensitive).

Version 2.5.0 Major update: Add support for multiple, simultaneously open, collections.

Version 2.4.25 Add buttons on the Image Viewer window that let you move through multiple images in the case that a record has more than one image.

Version 2.4.24 Fix several bugs with generating web site files. Under some conditions, the links in the index page pointed to the wrong records. Images could be duplicated when the collection included multiple image fields. The pound symbol (£) was not being correctly generated.

Version 2.4.23 Fix bug when generating web site when there is a record that contains a less-than character ("<") in a text field. This caused the web-generation process to hang.

Version 2.4.22: Improve layout in the Image Gallery. Reduction in blank space around images results in more images per page and a more useful presentation.

Version 2.4.21: Fix bug with trying to generate a web site with the output folder created at the top level of the disk (C:\). The program wouldn't let you do this; you had to create the folder at least one level down in the file-system hierarchy.

Version 2.4.20: Allow one-line text fields to use picklists.

Version 2.4.19: Add support for printing the Image Gallery.

Version 2.4.18: Make footnote-style hyperlinks behave as toggles: Click to show the footnote; click again to hide it. (Previously you had to explicitly click the footnote's own close button to close the footnote window.)

Version 2.4.17: Remember size of one-field editor windows, so they always start up the same size that the user last set for such windows. Also, fix bug with subsetting when criteria included matching a string that contains 8-bit characters (e.g. an accented character).

Version 2.4.16: Add a "Copy" button on Image Viewer windows, that allows the user to copy the window's image to the clipboard. Also, add a "Refresh Images" choice on the Options menu, that causes the program to refetch image data, so that if a user updates an image file (keeping the same file name), the program can be told to update its image cache to pick up the changed image(s)..

Version 2.4.15: Add a search menu to the data-editing/entry window.

Version 2.4.14: Remember the directory chosen with a file selection dialog for various operations. When next doing that same operation, initialize the file selection dialog to display the same directory that was used the last time this operation was done. (This memory is done via preferences, so it lasts across sessions.)

Version 2.4.13: Bug fix: Layout in printed reports of records with multiple images (when omitting image field labels) was sometimes unattractive: When images required more than one line for layout, the second (and subsequent) lines were inappropriately indented in the display.

Version 2.4.12: Enhancements to keyboard shortcuts when editing text: word-motion commands now honor accented characters; added undo (Ctrl-Z) support; fixed bug with deleting selected text after Ctrl-Shift-End command selected all text from current position to end (it previously didn't delete when you hit the Delete key in this situation).

Version 2.4.11: Fixes for two bugs: (1) Error when trying to export to Excel on PC without Excel installed. (2) Incorrect processing when reading a collection file that contains image paths with embedded path components that begin with the letter 'n' (lowercase): The "\n" combination (preceding backslash and following 'n') was being incorrectly interpreted as a newline (paragraph separator), rather than as a normal part of the full pathname.

Version 2.4.10: During data entry, automatically format dates to conform to the user's chosen preference for how date values should be formatted.

Version 2.4.9: Make it easier for people running in demo mode to upgrade to fully licensed mode.

Version 2.4.8: Add 'Check for Updates' to the Recollector Help menu. Makes it easier for users to see if they are up-to-date and to upgrade if they aren't.

Version 2.4.7: Filter out non-breaking space (NBSP) characters which may have made their way into collection data via import or copy-and-paste. These characters can cause confusion when downloaded to the Recollector App, so now they are filtered out (converted to normal spaces).

Version 2.4.6: Treat secure URLs (beginning "https://") the same as normal URLs (beginning "http://"), in terms of recognizing them as valid links to network resources..

Version 2.4.5: Fix bug: Hyperlinks in text fields whose labels were supressed (by having the field name enclosed in parentheses) were not working.

Version 2.4.4: Added an option for putting a user-specified image in the header of each page of printed reports. This allows reports to be "branded" or otherwise enhanced by inclusion of an image (that could be an icon or an image of some nicely formatted/colored text, or combination of the two) as a page header. Also fixed the formatting of currency totals, so they don't print in scientific format if very large. Made the font used in reports be the same as the currently selected font for displaying Item Details.

Version 2.4.3: Added a preference that lets currency values always be displayed with a two-digit decimal part (e.g. 150.00 rather than 150), if so desired.

Version 2.4.2: Smoother start-up for new users: Welcome window and direct flow into creating the first collection. Also fix for small bug with Image Gallery display when collection is empty.

Version 2.4.1: Added a wizard for creating new collections, which simplifies and streamlines the process for getting started with Recollector. Also fixed some obscure minor bugs.

Version 2.3.10: Fix bug with subset definitions whose criteria used fields of type Currency or Dimension. These subset definitions would sometimes exclude records that should be included.

Version 2.3.9: Fix bug with creating collection from an Excel spreadsheet with multi-line text in one or more of the row 1 (header row) values of the spreadsheet.

Version 2.3.8: Fix bug with incorrect sorting of numeric values when negative numbers were included.

Version 2.3.7: Retain the size and position of the editor window across sessions. Avoids the user having to move and resize the window at the beginning of each session, to a preferred size and place.

Version 2.3.6: Added a preference allowing for European-style numeric separators (e.g.: 1.234,56). Also, adjusted the height of some text-entry boxes in the add/edit window. Windows settings for non-default type-size magnification was causing some of the fields to be too short.

Version 2.3.5: Fixed bug with generating web site when an Image field had a trailing semi-colon. The same bug would have shown up if an Image field had a leading semi-colon or an embedded doubled semi-colon as well. No error message was shown, but the generation of HTML files stopped when a record with this semi-colon problem was in process of being generated. A related, but as yet undiscovered, bug might have been in the code for some other features (e.g. report generation, backup), and I tried to add the same checking logic to these cases.

Version 2.3.4: Small change to recent password feature. Now the program remembers the last-entered password during a given session and tries to use this before prompting the user for a password. This speeds up the case of working with multiple collections protected with the same password or reverting a collection or restoring a collection from backup. Now the user won't be repeatedly prompted for the same password.

Version 2.3.3: Added support for password-protected encryption. The contents of collection files can now be secured by associating a collection with a user-chosen password. The collection can only be opened in Recollector after supplying the correct password, and the data in the underlying file are encrypted so that the data's privacy are maintained even if the computer containing the collection file is lost or stolen..

Version 2.3.2: Fixes to some incorrect updating of the Image Gallery after resorting in the List tab.

Version 2.3.1: A major update: An Image Gallery capability has been added to Recollector. Complementing the List view and the Item Details view, the Image Gallery presents a third way to browse through your collection: As an array of images.

Version 2.2.23: Added drag-and-drop support for putting filenames into image/audio/video fields in the data-entry/editing window. You can now select one or more files in a Windows Explorer window and simply drag and drop it into the appropriate text-entry field in the data-entry/editing window. Also added similar drag-and-drop support for identifying a media file (for M-type links) or an associated document file (for F-type links) in the Special Link dialog.

Version 2.2.22: Added a new template: watches, for watch collections.

Version 2.2.21: Date fields in the data-entry/editing window now have a "calendar" button next to them. Clicking on this button brings up a calendar widget, with which one can select the desired date. That date will then be automatically filled into the date field's text-entry box.

Version 2.2.20: Added the ability to generate a summary page for currency-type fields in printed reports (File > Generate Printed Report). The optional summary page lists totals for fields of type currency that are included in the report. Also added the ability to select "All fields (in Item Details order)" when choosing which fields to include when generating a printed report or when generating a web site.

Version 2.2.19: Added support for selecting multiple files at once for image/audio/video fields, using the Browse button in the data-entry/editing window. The file-selection window that comes up when you click Browse now allows multiple item selection, using the standard <Ctrl>-click and <Shift>-click mouse actions.

Version 2.2.18: New icon/logo for Recollector. Also, a new File menu choice: Add a Copy of Current Record. This allows you to create a record that is a close copy of an existing record.

Mac OS X: Current release: 1.7.8 (October 9, 2017)

Version 1.7.8 Fix calendar bug in editor: Selected day on calendar would sometimes get translated to the following day, if local time and GMT are on different dates.

Version 1.7.7 Fix tabbing bug in editor: Tab key did not advance focus to next control from a multi-line text edit field if it contained any newline characters (for example, if it contained multiple paragraphs).

Version 1.7.6 Add support for checkboxes in the editor.

Version 1.7.5 Add debug logging for uncaught errors.

Version 1.7.4 Fix bug with Item Details, that only affected systems running OS X 10.9, and only under certain circumstances..

Version 1.7.3 Adding a debugging hook to check on any problems when generating Item Details pages.

Version 1.7.2 Introduced support for "managed access" (collaborative, multi-user, access to a collection database). Starting with this release, only the OS X 10.9 and later version will be updated. Users who are still on OS X 10.7 or 10.8 will need to continue to use version 1.6.11.

Version 1.6.11 Two minor bug fixes: (1) Program hung after clicking Copy fields in the editor window if you had filled in previously empty fields but hadn't yet saved the edited data. (2) Failure to read in collection files that contained very long lines (>1023 bytes) of multi-byte unicode character data.

Version 1.6.10 Fix logic for handling audio/video files, to avoid possibly long delays when adding very large audio or video files to a record.

Version 1.6.9 Reduce image sizes for printed reports; particularly helps when generating PDF files.

Version 1.6.8 Add ability to have thumbnail images in the index page when generating a web site.

Version 1.6.7 Fix bug with trying to use Copy Fields more than once in the Editor window.

Version 1.6.6 Add ability to generate web site using PHP, rather than HTML, files.

Version 1.6.5 Fix small bug with search subsets: Trying to create a search subset when a prior search subset was in effect did not always do the right thing.

Version 1.6.4 Update to help, and testing under El Capitan (OS X 10.11).

Version 1.6.3 Fix bug introduced in 1.6.1, that put plus signs (rather than bolded text), around field names in printed Item Details and in printed reports.

Version 1.6.2 Add a template for mineral collections.

Version 1.6.1 Change to the internal format for marking sections of text as bold. This allows the plus sign (+) to be freely used in text, including having multiple adjacent plus signs (e.g. "A+++" as a condition value). This change involved bumping the internal collection version number (to 1.5), so the product minor version number has also been bumped from 1.5 to 1.6.

Version 1.5.32 Add ability to format sections of text as subscripts.

Version 1.5.31 Provide the ability to lay out the Item Details view in the same way as is done by the PC/Windows version of Recollector: With a tabular layout, field names in the first column and values in the second. This is controlled via a new Item Details preference..

Version 1.5.30 Further fixes for bugs when leaving the editing window open while changing from List view to Item Details view in the main window. The Special Link Editor dialog did not function in this case. Also, improve the UI for setting up new W-type links: Automatically suggest the URL when the visible text appears to be a web link.

Version 1.5.29 Fix bug with leaving the editing window open while changing from List view to Item Details view in the main window. After doing this and returning to the edit window, the <Return> key was not functioning.

Version 1.5.28 Add ability to specify default values for fields. Add a preference that causes the "Assign next 'ID #' value" button to be automatically pressed when adding a new record.

Version 1.5.27 Add support for a special number-type field, named Quantity* which acts as a multiplier when computing totals for currency-type fields. The product of the currency field's value times the value of Quantity* is used when computing totals in the Summary window and in the Currency Summary page of printed reports.

Version 1.5.26 Allow M-type and F-type special hyperlinks to use simple filenames (rather than full path names), if the target file is located in the Image Directory folder. Include files referenced in M-type and F-type links in the backup/restore capability.

Version 1.5.25 Added the ability to select which fields are exported when exporting for the Recollector App.

Version 1.5.24 Added the ability to include jump-to hyperlinks to records in different collections (not just within the current collection). This is done using the R-type special hyperlink.

Version 1.5.23 New feature: "Search Subsets". Allows user to quickly define a temporary subset whose condition is the specifications in the search dialog (string to search for, field(s) to search, whether or not to make the matching case-sensitive).

Version 1.5.22 Add buttons on the Image Viewer window that let you move through multiple images in the case that a record has more than one image.

Version 1.5.21: On Subsets menu, list the subsets in alphabetic order, to ease locating a particular subset.

Version 1.5.20: Cosmetic fixes, only, to some labeling and to the Read.me file.

Version 1.5.19: Allow one-line text fields to use picklists.

Version 1.5.18: Add support for printing the Image Gallery.

Version 1.5.17: Make footnote-style hyperlinks behave as toggles: Click to show the footnote; click again to hide it. (Previously you had to explicitly click the footnote's own close button to close the footnote window.)

Version 1.5.16: Updated to run under Yosemite (OS X 10.10).

Version 1.5.15: Fix bug with trying to change sort order if no row is selected in the List view.

Version 1.5.14: Allow image windows to be closed via the keyboard in the traditional Mac way: with Command-W.

Version 1.5.13: Three bug fixes: (1) Fix inverted display of PDF files in image windows; (2) Update gallery view immediately when font size is changed; (3) Fix problem in Item Details printing layout when multiple images extend over more than one page.

Version 1.5.12: During data entry, automatically format dates to conform to the user's chosen preference for how date values should be formatted.

Version 1.5.11: Make it easier for people running in demo mode to upgrade to fully licensed mode.

Version 1.5.10: Fix tab-navigation behavior when adding multiple records at one time. Also, get the add data window to respect the user-chosen window size for the editor window.

Version 1.5.9: Add 'Check for Updates' to the Recollector Help menu. Makes it easier for users to see if they are up-to-date and to upgrade if they aren't.

Version 1.5.8: Treat secure URLs (beginning "https://") the same as normal URLs (beginning "http://"), in terms of recognizing them as valid links to network resources..

Version 1.5.7: Added an option for putting a user-specified image in the header of each page of printed reports. This allows reports to be "branded" or otherwise enhanced by inclusion of an image (that could be an icon or an image of some nicely formatted/colored text, or combination of the two) as a page header. Also fixed a layout bug in the report generator: If multiple images were placed side-by-side and the right-most image was shorter than any of the images to its left, subsequent text fields were not being positioned far enough down, and could overwrite the taller images.

Version 1.5.6: Added a preference that lets currency values always be displayed with a two-digit decimal part (e.g. 150.00 rather than 150), if so desired.

Version 1.5.5 Minor enhancements to the report generation code.

Version 1.5.4 Bug fixes in report generation (layout was a little off in some unusual conditions) and in the edit subset dialog (an error case was not being gracefully caught).

Version 1.5.3 Display units in header row of List View, when field is currency or dimension type. Also, fix small bug in Image Gallery display of labels when records have missing data.

Version 1.5.2 Update the online help to reflect the new create-collection wizard. Also added an introductory window to help start off new users. Made the show/hide pix choice sticky (remembered across sessions)..

Version 1.5.1 Added a wizard for creating new collections, which simplifies and streamlines the process for getting started with Recollector. Also fixed some obscure minor bugs.

Version 1.4.15 Minor bug fix release. Fixed several small bugs in report generation (computation of totals for currency fields could be incorrect; setting fields from a profile was off on the fields chosen). Sorting by a currency field made more robust (now deals better with values that include a currency symbol or that have commas as thousands-separators).

Version 1.4.14 Improved error reporting for any problems that occur when exporting a collection file.

Version 1.4.13 Get two-finger swipe-gesture trackpad scrolling to work in the gallery view. Previously this moved the scrollbar but did not update the gallery view.

Version 1.4.12: Fix bug with importing from Excel when the column headers (row 1 values in the spreadsheet) contain multi-line texts. This produced a non-openable collection when creating a new collection from the spreadsheet.

Version 1.4.11: Fixed a couple of bugs in the layout of complex printed reports. Images and, in some cases, pieces of text were getting truncated in reports that included large amounts of long text, or image fields as the last field in the report layout.

Version 1.4.10: Fixed an obscure bug: If, in demo mode, you tried to open an existing collection that contained more than 25 records (obviously a collection that was created by a non-demo-mode copy of Recollector, since in demo mode collections can only contain up to 25 records), you got an error and the collection would not open. The collection should have opened truncated (showing only the first 25 records) and in read-only mode (to avoid danger of losing existing data). Now it does the right thing.

Version 1.4.9: Fixed minor bug: With a collection using numeric ID values, the "Add a new record" window should show an "Assign next 'ID #' value" button to the right of the ID # field. But if, in a session, a record was edited and saved, then the next time the "Add a new record" window was brought up, the "Assign next 'ID #' value" button would be hidden.

Version 1.4.8: Worked around bug that occurred on just some Macs but not others(!): Thumbnail images in the Item Details display did not properly open an image viewer window when clicked on. A Safari window opened instead (with no image shown). All other places where thumbnails were displayed (thumbnail banner on List View, Gallery View) worked fine when clicked on.

Version 1.4.7: Eliminated the (undocumented) requirement that had been there that required the user to restart Recollector after submitting the license key before the license key took effect. Now the program goes into fully licensed mode immediately after providing the license key, with no need to restart the program.

Version 1.4.6: Fixed a bug with start-up if the user chooses not to move Recollector to the Applications folder.

Version 1.4.5: Fixed a bug with thumbnails in the Item Details window when the image file includes an EXIF instruction to rotate the image. The images were not being rotated.

Version 1.4.4: Fixed two bugs (1) Blank imagewindow when double-clicking an Item Details thumbnail in a collection whose path name includes a space or other special character; (2) Incorrect refreshing of Image Gallery when multiple collections are open simultaneously.

Version 1.4.3: Added keyboard accelerators for Edit Record (⌘-E) and Add New Record (⌘-N).

Version 1.4.2: Small change to handling of passwords. Now, if reverting to an earlier version of a collection, the program will try to use the password you previously supplied, rather than re-prompting for the same password.

Version 1.4.1: Added support for password-protected encryption. The contents of collection files can now be secured by associating a collection with a user-chosen password. The collection can only be opened in Recollector after supplying the correct password, and the data in the underlying file are encrypted so that the data's privacy are maintained even if the computer containing the collection file is lost or stolen..

Version 1.3.1: A major update: An Image Gallery capability has been added to Recollector. Complementing the List view and the Item Details view, the Image Gallery presents a third way to browse through your collection: As an array of images.

Version 1.2.30: Added drag-and-drop support for putting filenames into image/audio/video fields in the data-entry/editing window. You can now select one or more files in a Finder window and simply drag and drop it into the appropriate text-entry field in the data-entry/editing window.

Version 1.2.29: Some bug fixes related to importing Excel data. Multi-paragraph texts were losing their paragraph separations upon import from Excel. Also, numeric values (including currencies and dimensions) were sometimes losing their fractional values upon import.

Version 1.2.28: Added a new template: watches, for watch collections.

Version 1.2.27: Date fields in the data-entry/editing window now have a "calendar" button next to them. Clicking on this button brings up a calendar widget, with which one can select the desired date. That date will then be automatically filled into the date field's text-entry box.

Version 1.2.26: Added the ability to generate a summary page for currency-type fields in printed reports (File > Generate Printed Report). The optional summary page lists totals for fields of type currency that are included in the report.

Version 1.2.25: Added support for selecting multiple files at once for image/audio/video fields, using the Browse button in the data-entry/editing window. The file-selection window that comes up when you click Browse now allows multiple item selection, using the standard <Command>-click and <Shift>-click mouse actions.

Version 1.2.24: New icon/logo for Recollector.

Version 1.2.23: Fixed bug with picklists not observing their strict vs. non-strict definitions.

Version 1.2.22: A new File menu choice: Add a Copy of Current Record. This allows you to create a record that is a close copy of an existing record.
