New demo version

Postby DPSoftware » Tue Sep 08, 2015 7:00 pm

I realised that the demo crashed when doing a thread length estimate. This is because it saves the design first so it can flatten any layered objects and thus include all visible stitches but no hidden ones and then restore the original design after the calculation. The demo does not save so it caused a problem that does not exist with the full version.

The new one released today will show the thread lengths but will not take into account any layered objects. So you can see how it works without crashing it.

Please report any problems you find in the demo and I will try to have them resolved immediately.

To install the new demo, you can either just click the download link again and install over the top or you can check for upgrades from the Help menu of the software.

The demo and full version are now separate programs that have their own default folders so can be installed simultaneously. This allows registered users to also run the demo to check features from higher editions of the software. The checking for upgrades works separately for the 2 programs - the demo being freely available and the full version requiring registration.
