Fact Sheet Fusion v2.0.5.118 Update

Fact Sheet FusionFact Sheet Fusion News

A new update to Fact Sheet Fusion (v2.0.5.118) is now available (free to existing v2 licence holders).

This latest update adds a number of new features including:

A new Projects Batch Export. This useful new feature allows multiple selected projects to be exported without opening each individually and performing the export.

The Content Importer (HTML & MS Word) has been further enhanced. It now has an extended save function which saves files associated for import (Html/Word) that have been mapped against Entities. A save shortcut key has also been added (Ctrl + s). A small bug within the Content Importer has also been corrected where a rule wasn’t updated when previewing a rule, if focus hadn’t been moved.

Bug fixes include:

  • An uncaught null media caption exception.
  • Corrected the remaining export calculations when entities were marked as excluded from the export process.
  • The entities and topics import dialog now trims any tab characters from import items that may be present.

Help has been updated to reflect the new features and changes. The update can be downloaded via the Help..Update feature within Fact Sheet Fusion. Or if your network security blocks update notifications it can be directly downloaded via www.lucidcentral.org

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.
