The changes in version 6 are centred around usability — making Atomic Scribbler more intuitive and easier to use, for new users as well as regular users. This release also includes a Microsoft Framework upgrade which will help with display issues on high-res monitors.
System requirements have also changed. Atomic Scribbler version 6 will run on Windows 10, 8.1 and 7. It will no longer run on Windows 8 PCs that have not run the Windows update to 8.1.
The website (Knowledge Base and screenshots) will be updated over the next few days.
The Research tree has been moved to the right section so that it can be visible at the same time as the Document tree.
A set of Up/Down buttons have been added to the main toolbar to switch between different views in the right section. The buttons are for Research, Notes, Daily Word Count and SmartEdit (if you have SmartEdit installed).
An option now exists to switch off the Start Page. [Settings dialog] A number of users were not finding value in the Start Page, so this option allows them to remove it.
Bookmarks, Images and Files can now be added to the Document and Fragment trees. While my intent was to keep all of this material in the Research area, opening up the other trees always more flexibility. I’ve found myself wanting to add the odd ‘reminder’ image to a folder in the Document tree.
Changes to automatic backups: an option to take only one backup each day instead of multiple backups each time you close, and an option to exclude the current project from automatic backups. [Settings dialog]
This is an important change as the frequency of backups was too much for some users, especially when backing up to a cloud folder. With these new options you can be sure you always have a single up-to-date backup each day of your important projects.
