Murphy’s law alive and well in the world of RISC OS software.

A new version of DrawPrint is available from Sine Nomine Software, released to deal with a problem discovered in the previous version very soon after its release.

DrawPrint is an application that provides more control when printing Drawfiles, sprites or JPEGs, allowing them to be printed over multiple pages, allowing the user to select a scale, margins, overlaps, and so on. It also allows individual pages to be exported as Drawfiles for use in other applications.

Version 1.39 addresses a bug found in the ‘Preview’ window, whereby some buttons were disappearing at the bottom if the paper was in landscape mode, or simply not tall enough for the buttons to appear.

Following the release of version 1.32 of DrawPrint, Sine Nomine Software have announced version 1.34, which fixes a number of bugs, crediting Harriet Bazley for finding most of them, and offering apologies to users who have downloaded version 1.32 or 1.33 in the last few days, who will now need to download version 1.34 instead.

“Even if you don’t expect to use the new page export features,” explains Hilary Phillips, “you should still download the new version as it fixes a couple of bugs which have been around for a while.”

And Harriet Bazley has herself announced a “tweak” to SideDiff, her application to display the differences between two versions of a text or BASIC file, side-by-side in a colour-coded format. Continue reading »
