Lucid v3.6 Updated

Lucid v3.6

 

A new Lucid v3.6 update is now available. It adds extra features and corrects several minor bugs. Changes include:

JavaScript (browser) player – new features added

The following features that were included in the Java applet player (that is no longer supported) have recently been added to the replacement JavaScript player.

  • Shortcuts – this function, like the “Best” function, provides a quicker route to an identification. When Shortcuts is activated, the Player searches for features that, if answered, will provide an immediate shortcut to an identification.
  • Why discarded? – indicates those features responsible for a selected entity being discarded.
  • Expanding and collapsing features – This feature has been tweaked to be more in line with the previous Java player.
  • Ranked mode – Tip: Ranked mode (sorting entities on a percentage match) has been supported from the initial release of the JavaScript player, however the default export option is the discarded/remaining mode. You can set the Player to use the ranked (with percentage matched), by setting this in key’s options, via the Lucid Builders export dialog.

Lucid Builder v3.6

  • Saving – changes to the save process have been made to help prevent data loss if an unexpected error occurs. For example, disconnection of a network or USB drive. Or powerloss during the save process or a software bug.
  • Bug fixes & other changes – numerous minor bug fixes and enhancements have been completed. More detailed messages and improved dialogs for critical errors, if the unexpected occurs.
