This release does not contain any new features. I’ll be working on new features and changes to SmartEdit in March.
Version 7 supports Word 2019, and upgrades the Microsoft framework used by SmartEdit. This upgrade is important to keep SmartEdit in line with recent Office changes and to keep it working with high DPI monitors.
The framework upgrade is part of the installation. Most users of Windows 10 PCs will already have this framework installed as part of general Windows updates, but users of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 PCs might find the installation takes longer than usual.
If you have any issues with the installation, please post them here on this thread. A stand-alone installer for the new framework can be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft website on this page.
Windows 8 users will need to ensure they have run the Windows 8.1 upgrade, as Windows 8 (without updates) is no longer compatible.
In a couple of weeks time a new version of Atomic Scribbler will be released which will also require this framework update.
