WordTsar 0.1.491 Released

Another big step for the project. We can now print. Imagine that, a word processor that prints!

Due to a bit of a brain fart, I only implement ^OP (print preview) and forgot ^KP (print). It’ll be in the next release. Both will do the exact same thing anyway. There are also a few squiggly corner cases I may have missed with printing, but I’ll catch them next time.

I also changed the main window display a bit, there’s a progress meter in the status bar when formatting the document, and the bold/italic/etc indicators look a bit different.

That’s it. No bug fixes

I’ll do something new here as well, and tell you what I’m working on next. Because I need it, headers and footers will be implemented next.

WordTsar 0.1.345 Released

This release is a big step for the project. We’ve moved from an in-house Mercurial repo to Sourceforge, so now anyone can look at the code. It’s a bit sloppy in parts. Other changes are:

  • fixed a bug that stopped auto formatting of documents when they are loaded.
  • fixed a screen flicker introduced during ‘format on load’ code.
  • added math in dot command

The addition of math in dot commands means you can do simple things like .rm 8.5-1-1i to set the right margin to 6.5 inches. The math system will also do complex math like  2 * (pi / 4.7) + sqrt(7), but why would you want to?
