New features in version 7.17
(single-user)

January 09, 2014
Free upgrade to all registered users

Date and time
* Added: a dialog to change the node-date and node-time of the current node. You can access the 'Node date and time' dialog through "Menu: Tree/Edit/Node date and time".
* Added: you can now (reverse) sort a subtree ("Menu: Tree/Sort") using the date-time the node was created, the date-time the article was changed and the node date-time.
* As with sorting on 'node title', you can sort the entire subtree recursively ('all levels') on date/time or sort just the direct children('one level').
* Added: one can now insert the node-date, node-time and node date-time as text into article or node title through "Menu: Insert/Node/Node date", "Menu: Insert/Node/Node time" and "Menu: Insert/Node/Node date and time".

Automatic article fields
* Added: five new automatic article fields. Using "Menu: Insert/Field" you can insert fields into the article which update themselves automatically on print or article reload.
* The five new fields are: the date-time the node was created, the date-time the article was changed, the node date, the node time and the node date-and-time.
* Two additional fields are listed in the 'Insert field' dialog, but these are only meaningful with the multi-user edition (TPX Enterprise Server, version 7.17, not yet available). These two fields are: the TreePad username of the person who created the node, and the username of the person who last changed the article contents.

'Children' attachment pane
* Added: two new columns: 'Date changed' and 'Date created'. 'Date changed' is the date/time on which the article was last edited. 'Date created' is the date/time on which the article/node were created.
* By clicking on one of the column headers, the list of child nodes can be sorted accordingly.

Hyperlinks
* Added: the address (URL) of a hyperlink (in the article) can now be displayed in the statusbar. Just click somewhere inside the hyperlink with your left mouse button, and the address (URL) will become visible in the statusbar. This assumes that you have not altered the default setting for opening hyperlinks (which is: 'Activate hyperlinks by double click').

Menus
* The 'Insert' menu has been restructured. "Menu: Insert/Node Path" and "Menu: Insert/Node path" were moved to "Menu: Insert/Node/Name" and "Menu: Insert/Node/Path" respectively.
* three new menu items were added to the 'Insert' menu. See the paragraph 'Date and time' above.
* The 'Tree' menu has been restructured. "Menu: Tree/Edit node name", "Menu: Tree/Checked' and "Menu: Tree/Node properties" have been moved to "Menu: Tree/Edit/Node name", "Menu: Tree/Edit/Checked", "Menu: Tree/Edit/Node properties" respectively.
* One new menu item has been added to the insert menu: "Menu: Tree/Edit/Node date and time". See the paragraph 'Date and time' above.

Paragraph formatting dialog
* Improved: one can now also type a negative value in the field 'first line'.

Download-package contents
* Two new files have been added to the download packages: md5sums.txt and sha1sums.txt.
* md5sums.txt contains the md5-checksums for the executable files inside the download package.
* sha1sums.txt sha1-checksums for the executable files inside the download package.
* One or both of these files can be useful to verify the validity of the TreePad executable files (program, installer, uninstaller and dlls) when you suspect that some files are corrupted because your system might have been infected by malware, or that your harddisk has corrupted sectors.
* To use these files on Windows you will need an external utility. On Linux there are the built-in command-line utilities 'md5sum' and 'sha1sum'.

Bugfixes
* Article 'Line select' now functions again (when enabled in the settings screen).
* The font combo-box is no longer empty after entering and exiting full-screen (presentation) mode.
* Sorting tables by row did not always give the correct results. Fixed.
* We also fixed a number of smaller issues that would take too much space to include here.

 

New features in version 7.16.1
(single-user)

Navigation
* Improved: you can now open up to 12 databases simultaneously.
* Added: four additional database-slot buttons to the left-hand side of the program's main window.
* Added: a small triangle button, directly above the row of 12 database-slot buttons. When you click on the small triangle, a 'Switch to database' menu opens.

Auto-dial
* Added: inside the settings screen, category 'Autodial', you can find these two new options:
  - Use the Windows telephony service.
  - Use a VOIP program (such as Skype).
* When the first (default) option is selected, phone hyperlinks will activate the Windows telephony service (as before).
* When the second option is selected, phone hyperlinks will go through Skype (or another VOIP program).

Install and uninstall
* Improved: the installer now contains new and state-of-the-art folder dialogs. These are useful when you want to select a non-default program-directory or start-menu folder.
* Improved: the user-interface of the installer has been redesigned using a new skin.

Security
* Added: digital signatures. The installer, uninstaller and TreePad program itself now are 'code-signed' by us, meaning: Freebyte Software Engineering.
* Info: our digital signature can be viewed (in Windows, not Linux/Wine) by right-clicking on any of the executables (the installer, uninstaller or the TreePad program), then click 'Properties'. Finally, open the tab 'Digital signatures'.

Images
* Added: a new 'Format image' dialog, accessible through: 'Menu: Format/Image'.
* When an image (wider than 440 pixels or so) is inserted into TreePad's article, it is often displayed smaller than its original. The 'Format image' dialog gives you precise control over how an image is displayed.
* Using the 'Format image' dialog it is also possible to display an image at exactly 100% of its original size which avoids resizing artefacts.
* In more detail, the 'Format image' dialog allows one to:
view the dimensions of the original image.
resize the dimensions of the displayed image by changing the width and height in pixels.
resize the dimensions of the displayed image by changing the width and height as a percentage of the original dimensions.
* While changing the dimensions inside the 'Format image' dialog, the ratio (between width and height) of the original image is preserved by default. However, if you clear the checkbox 'Preserve aspect ratio', you can change width and height independently. This effectively distorts the way the image is displayed.
* Please also note that images (as inserted into the article) are stored unaltered and in their original dimensions inside the database. Therefore displaying an image at 100% of its original size will always give the best results.

Tree
* Improved: by default, the tree-pane now scrolls more easily while responding to the mouse scrollwheel. See also the paragraph 'Options', below.

Options
* Improved: the resolution of the default tab size is now two decimals instead of one. See the options screen, category "Article/Tabs, indents".
* Added: a Category "Tree/scroll-wheel" to the options screen, for changing the scroll-wheel sensitivity of the tree-pane.

Keyboard shortcuts
* Bugfix: the up/down cursor keys sometimes would not function correctly in the tree pane. Fixed in the current release.

Tables
* Bugfix: tables created or altered using the previous version could become larger than the width of the page. This won't happen anymore with the current release.
* Info: if you have a table (created using a previous release), which runs off the screen, just use the table-width dialog (or table-properties dialog) to fix the problem.

Hyperlinks
* Added: when you insert a file hyperlink using drag-drop, the icon of the file is now also included. You can specify in the options screen to include an icon and/or a text link (see also below).
* Added: a yellow hyperlink activation tooltip (optional). It is shown inside the TreePad toolbar area after you successfully activate a hyperlink. It can take a while for the operating system (and/or software associated with the hyperlink) to respond, and sometimes a double click is not detected by the operating system. Through the hyperlink activation tooltip you will immediately know whether (or not) your action was successful.
* Bugfix: pressing ctrl H to activate a hyperlink did not function correctly. Fixed.

Options screen
* Added: an option to enable or disable the hyperlink activation tooltip. You can access this option in the settings screen, Category: Article/Hyperlinks.
* Moved: the option 'File hyperlinks created with drag drop are relative' has been moved to the category: Article/Hyperlinks/Links to files.
* Added: for hyperlinks created using drag drop you can now also specify whether to include the file icon, file title or both. Category: Article/Hyperlinks/Links to files.

Favorites
* Bugfix: the favorites toolbutton did not function correctly. Fixed.

Manuals
* Updated: the 'Quick Start Guide' has a new section on importing data from other TreePad editions.

Toolbars popup menu
* Added: the toolbars popup menu now also appears when you right-click anywhere inside the article button bar (this is the row of buttons below the article).

Group files
* Improved: Empty database-slots are now remembered when you save a group-file. For instance, if you have databases opened in slots #1,#2 and #5 this exact information will now be saved to the group-file (using Menu: Database/Group/Save group as). Later on, when you open this group-file again, the last database (in the group-file) will no longer be loaded inside the first available database-slot (which is slot #3 in this case), but it will be loaded in slot #5.

Hyperlinks
* Added: Menu: Insert/Links to/Files now not only inserts a text link to the file, the icon of the file is also included. The icon of the file is an image link. If you double click on the icon, it will behave just as a text link. You can specify in the options screen to include an icon and/or a text link when using Menu: Insert/Links to Files.

Options screen
* Added, Category: Article/Hyperlinks/Links to files. This new category allows you to customize the Menu: Insert/Links/To files function with two new options:
  (1) Show the icon of the file: when this option is enabled (default), and you insert one or more hyperlinks to files (Using Menu: Insert/Links/To files), the icons associated with the files (in Windows) are included.
  (2) Show the name of the file: when this option is enabled (default), and you insert one or more hyperlinks to files (Using Menu: Insert/Links/To files), the name of the file is included.
* Moved: the option Hyperlinks created with Menu: Insert/Links/To files are relative has been moved to the new category Links to files.
* Bugfix: tree font size was not stored correctly between settings.

Fields
* Bugfix: fields did not display contents in print preview (only the field name was displayed).

Article
* Bugfix: Drag-drop of a block of text inside the article was not possible in the last version. Fixed in this release.

Attachments
* Bugfix (384Gb edition on NTFS only): the error message "The table 'TPObject' is full and cannot contain any more data" will now occur exclusively when the database contains around 128 Gigabytes of files (attachments).

Tree
* Added: the possibility to copy the text-formatting of a tree node through
Menu: Tree/Copy/Node formatting (or Tree context menu: Copy/Node formatting).
* Added: To paste the text-formatting (just copied) to another node, click
Menu: Tree/Paste/Formatting/Into node (or Tree context menu: Paste/Formatting/Into node).
* Added: To apply the text-formatting (just copied) to an entire subtree, click
Menu: Tree/Paste/Formatting/Into subtree (or Tree context menu: Paste/Formatting/Into subtree). This way all nodes in the subtree will take over the formatting you just pasted.
* Added: you can also use copy/paste node formatting between different databases (but only when these are opened inside the same instance of the program).

Manual: compatibility and portability
* Improved: TreePad X Enterprise no longer needs the manual to reside inside the program directory (when it finds the manual there it will still use it though). This change is necessary because Windows 7 and Vista by default do not allow users to copy files manually into 'program files' and its subdirectories.
* Added: a new 'Install manual' dialog. When you try to open the manual from inside TreePad Enterprise and it cannot find the manual, this dialog will be activated. It assists you in downloading the manual and copying it to its new location (by default this is in 'Application data').
* Moved: Menu: Help/Manual has been moved to Menu: Help/Manual/Open.
* Moved: Menu: Help/Online manual has been moved to Menu: Help/Manual/Open online manual.
* Portability feature maintained: if you are able to copy the manual into the program directory, then TreePad X Enterprise will use it. The fact that TreePad Enterprise still accesses the manual when it is found inside its program directory is especially useful for portability purposes. For instance, you can copy both the program and the manual into a directory on your USB stick.
* Added: Menu: Help/Manual/Update. This menu item is only available when the manual is installed outside the program directory. When you click on this menu item, a dialog will appear which is very similar to the 'Install manual' dialog described above. The 'Update manual' dialog assists you in downloading and installing a new version of the manual.
* Visibility of Menu: Help/Manual/Update. If the manual resides inside the TreePad X Enterprise program directory, then this menu item is not visible: TreePad expects you to manually copy the new version of the manual into its program directory.

Tables
* Added: "Menu: Table/Change/Table Width". This will allow you to adjust the width of the table without altering any of the other table properties.
* Moved: the table borders and shading dialog has been moved to "Menu: Table/Change/Borders and shading".

  (1) from inside TreePad using "Menu: Help/Quick Start Guide".
  (2) using the program group for TreePad X Enterprise (in the Windows start menu).

Article
* Added: a vertical article ruler. By default the vertical ruler is not visible. You can show it using the toolbars popup menu or the options screen.

Navigate
* Added: a new database 'popup menu' which allows you to select a database by using its name (as opposed to using its slot number when using the database buttons). Just right-click on the panel directly above the tree (i.e. the panel which displays the name of the current database). You can also right-click on the panel to the left of the tree (i.e. the panel containing the numbered database slot buttons).

Table of Contents
* Added: a dedicated wizard-style 'Table of Contents' dialog with some new options. You can open it using "Menu: Insert/Table of contents".
* Added: one can now insert (into the article) the table of contents of the selected node, or insert the table of contents of the parent node (of the selected node).
* Added: one can now limit the table of contents to checked or unchecked nodes (optional).

Print
* Moved: the page setup options are now contained inside a separate dialog, it is no longer part of the TreePad options screen. As before, you can access the page setup dialog through "Menu: Database/Page setup", but you can no longer open it through the options screen.
* Added: the page setup has a button 'default' to set the page setup options to their default values. Please note that this change only becomes effective after clicking 'OK'.

Website export
* Added: a new category 'files' inside the Website export screen. Inside the category you can specify whether to use .shtml files or .html files (default). When enabling the option 'use .shtml files' all exported html files (except for the search engine files) will have the file extension '.shtml'.
* Improved: when you export to Website (with 'checked nodes only' enabled) while the root node of the exported subtree is unchecked, you will no longer see an error message (the root node of the exported tree is included in the Website no matter what its 'checked' status).
* Improved: when you export to Website (with 'unchecked nodes only' enabled) while the root node of the exported subtree is checked, you will no longer see an error message (the root node of the exported tree is included in the Website no matter what its 'checked' status).

Tables
* Bugfix: tables inside the article no longer run off the page.
* Bugfix: when a table is sorted ("Menu: Table/Sort"), no longer it moves one line down.
* Bugfix: after a table column or row is moved ("Menu: Table/Move"), no longer the table moves one line down.

Fields
* Bugfix: under certain conditions a bogus underlined link titled 'nodepath' could be prepended to a field. Fixed.

DraftPad
* Added: the draftpad now also supports hyperlinks.
* Improved: font display in draftpad has been improved.
* Added: Spellcheck can now also be performed on the draftpad. Just click on the draftpad to set focus to it, then perform spellcheck.

Import/Export
* Improved: when you import a TreePad file into a database containing only one node, now a confirmation message is displayed asking whether you want to replace the root node with the root node of the imported file (or cancel the operation).
* Bugfix: error message 'cannot make a visible window modal' when exporting subtree attachments.

Calendar
* Bugfix: the calendar (Menu: Window/Calendar) no longer gets truncated on some versions of Windows.

* You can create as many group files as you want.
* You can associate group files with the TPX Enterprise program through "Menu: Database/Group/Group files/Associate TPX group files with TreePad Enterprise".
* After associating the group file type with TreePad, a group file (containing a group of databases) can be opened by double clicking on it (from inside Windows or the Windows Explorer file manager).
* You can also remove the file association through "Menu: Database/Group/Group files/Remove file association".
* Added: a command-line parameter for .tpxgroup files. Just pass the group file as the first command-line parameter. This will start TPX Enterprise, and make it load the specified group of databases.

Tree
* Added: the charactermap now also works when node editor is active. This means that you can insert special characters in the node title while you are editing it.
* Added: the menu items 'Format/Convert/To Uppercase', 'Format/Convert/To Lowercase', 'Format/Convert/To Sentence case', 'Format/Convert/To Title case' and 'Format/Convert/Invert case' can now be applied to the title of the current tree node as well (when the tree has focus but not while you are editing a node title).

Format
* Improved: the case-conversion options in 'Menu: Format/Convert' now also work on characters inside the upper half of the extended ascii character table (the Windows ISO-1252 character table). This includes letters such as 'a' with grave, 'a' with acute, 'c' with cedilla, the letter 'ae', etc.

Statusbar
* Changed: by default the path of the selected node is shown in the statusbar (instead of the folder of the active database).

'Children' Accessory pane
* Added: a new Accessory pane 'Children' which shows a list of the titles of all the child nodes of the selected tree node, as well as the date on which these items were changed.
* Added: to open the 'Children' Accessory pane, just click on the new button 'Children' below the article.
* Added: the new 'Children' pane allows for very powerful dual-pane drag-drop operations, much like the mass node mover dialog already does. To move a node to a new location, just drag-drop an item from the 'Children' list into the tree pane.
* Added: you can sort the Children list according to 'Date changed' and 'Node title' by clicking on the corresponding column header.
* Added: alternate navigation. If you double click on an item in the 'Children', list TreePad will navigate to that node.

(single-user)

June 09, 2008
Free upgrade to all registered users

Multi-monitor support
* Added: a button to the 'View' toolbar which enables one to send TreePad to a different monitor. Up to eight monitors are supported. This feature only works when you have two or more monitors connected to your computer, and Windows needs to have the option 'Extend my Windows destkop onto this monitor' enabled for the additional monitors in the control panel.

Install/uninstall
* Added: automatic uninstaller icon to the TreePad program group (only visible after using install.exe)
* Added: an entry inside the Windows control panel (category 'add remove programs') which can activate the automatic TreePad uninstaller. Please note that this control panel entry is only visible after previously having used install.exe to install TreePad X Enterprise.

June 02, 2008
Free upgrade for registered users

Compatibility
* Improved: both the installer and the program itself are now compatible with all available DEP settings in Windows Vista and Windows XP (DEP = Data Execution Prevention and can be found in the Windows control panel).

Database
Added: database properties dialog (Menu: Database/Properties)

Hyperlinks
* Added: one can now change the path for relative file hyperlinks. The database properties dialog can be used to set the base path for relative file hyperlinks. E.g. if you set the base path to 'd:\mydata\' then the relative link 'docs\invoicetemplate1.pdf' points to: 'd:\mydata\docs\invoicetemplate1.pdf'. Consequently, if you move the target files to e.g. 'e:\docs\' you only need to update the base path (using the database properties dialog) to make the relative file hyperlnks function again.
* Added: if you specify an empty base path in the database properties dialog (default), the situation is as before: relative links are relative to the location of the current database directory.

Website export
* Improved Website search engine:
* When you enter multiple words in the search box separated by spaces, TreePad Web-search now will return the pages that contain all these words.
* To search for a phrase, now just put quotes around it. For example: "millions of people" will return all pages containing the exact phrase millions of people.
* More complex search phrases are now also possible. Example: when you enter "millions of people" employee company hire, Web-search will return all pages containing the exact phrase "millions of people", as well as the words employee, company and hire.
* Improved: search results are now sorted according to the number of occurrences (of the search words and phrases) in the articles.
* Added: a 'Search help and tips' document which is part of the generated Website.
* Added: a link inside the search form to the 'Search Help and Tips' document.

Skins
* Changed: skin 'Purple' has been renamed to 'Purple 1'.
* Added: a new skin called 'Purple 2'.
* Improved: the looks of the skins 'Purple 1', 'Blue Sky', 'Blue metallic' and 'Green'.

Shortcut keys
* Added: ctrl-1 .... ctrl-9 in the tree navigates to items in the bookmarks pane.
* Added: ctrl-0 navigates to the root node.

December 14, 2007
Free upgrade for registered users

Website export
* Added: a built-in Website search engine. You can enable/disable the TreePad Web-search engine in the tab 'Search engine' inside the Website export dialog. Please note that the Website search engine is a PHP script which needs to be uploaded to the Internet in order to function.
* Added: a link inside the navigate panel titled 'search'. When you have enabled the 'Search engine' option, you also need to enable the 'navigate panel' option for generated Websites, because currently the 'search link' inside the navigate panel is the only method of accessing the search engine.

Tree
* Added: support for node templates. When a node is designated to be a 'template base' for the subtree, all newly created descendant nodes will contain the template article text and template images by default. Currently the template resides inside the article of the node which is the template base.
* Added: the node properties screen now contains a checkbox 'Is template base' where one can make any node a 'template base' (of its own subtree).
* Added: the 'New node' dialog. Inserting a new node inside a template-controlled subtree will result in showing the 'new node' dialog. This dialog presents you with the option of inserting a node using the current template, or a blank node (ignoring the template).
* Added: a template node can be distinguished (from regular nodes) by a little mark which is visible on the left-hand side of the node-icon.

Settings
* Added: a new tab 'template options'. It contains the checkbox titled 'When adding a node show the insert dialog'. If this option is enabled, then inserting a node inside a template-controlled subtree will result in showing the 'New node' dialog (which is described above). When this option is not enabled, inserting a node inside a template-controlled subtree will always result in inserting a new node using the current template.

Tree
* Added: internal tree clipboard. Copy/paste subtree now uses the internal tree clipboard by default, which is much faster (than the external tree clipboard). As before, you can use the internal tree clipboard to copy/paste subtrees inside the same database, as well as between different databases which are open inside the same program, but not to/from other TreePad programs which might be running (in order to do this, you need to utilize the external tree clipboard as before).
* Fixed: the function 'Navigate the tree using alphabet keys' (in the new tree control) is now working to content.

Settings
* Added: new category 'Tree clipboard'. You can now choose whether the internal or external tree clipboard will be used during subtree copy/paste operations. The internal clipboard (recommended) is the default. The external clipboard is only required now when a tree is pasted/copied to/from another TreePad program
* Added: Improved: the default tab size and page margin settings can now be entered using a comma or period as decimal separator, regardless of the language settings of the operating system.

Hyperlinks
* Improved: node hyperlinks are preserved during subtree transfer to another database (= drag-drop a subtree onto a database button).
* Improved: when pasting a subtree multiple times into the same database (using the internal tree clipboard), node-hyperlinks (which point to nodes inside this subtree) are preserved and will continue to point to nodes inside the subtree. The same holds true when transferring a subtree more than once to another database.

Article
* Fixed: the table of contents (all levels) now correctly displays indentation (i.e., the link-references to children, grand-children, etc. nodes are properly indented) when inserted. See Menu: Insert/Table of Contents/Subtree all levels
* Added: a new toolbar button for 'Save article'
* Changed: the button 'Store article' (which appears only when you move your mouse to the bottom right-hand side of an edited article), has been renamed to 'Save article'.

Database
* Added: enhanced text filtering. In case the clipboard contains invalid character codes these will no longer be pasted into the article but filtered out. Valid for Menu: Edit/Paste and Menu: Edit/Paste special/Paste as text.

Search
* Added: one can now generate a list of nodes which contain attachments. To locate nodes containing attachments (inside the entire tree or the selected subtree), first open the tree search dialog. You can leave the search-items empty if you wish, then enable the option 'Search nodes containing attachments' in the 'search range tab' before you start the search.

Shortcut keys:
* Reintroduced: when the tree has focus and the node editor is not open, pressing the 'enter' keyboard key will insert a new sibling node after the selected node.

Tree
* Improved: new tree control. The old third-party tree control has been replaced by a new solution created by us from scratch.
* Improved: tree operations, such as drag-drop, have been speeded up (because now, in most cases, the tree does not need to be reloaded anymore).
* You can now modify the type of tree drag-drop operation during a drag-drop operation, instead of only before, by pressing ctrl or shift. The drag-cursor will change accordingly. Pressing ctrl inserts the selected node before the dropsite node, pressing shift inserts the selected node after the dropsite node, in all other cases the selected node is inserted as last child of the dropsite node.
* Improved: Menu: Insert "date", "time", "date+time" and "specified date" now also functions when the node editor is active. More specifically, the date/time is inserted at the cursor position.
* Added: the keyboard shortcut "F4" scrolls the selected node into view.

Options
* Added: it is now possible to store the tree state of each database between sessions (which nodes are expanded/collapsed and selected). Options screen, category: tree

* Added: when running the program from a USB drive on a non-registered computer, the program still shows the registration screen, but now the registration screen is pre-loaded with your registration number (from the text file "tpreg.txt" which is created after entering your registration number once).
In other words, when running the program from USB drive on an unregistered computer you will no longer have to (1) open a file containing the registration number in a separate program, (2) select it, and (3) copy/paste it into the registration screen. All that is now done automatically.

Compatibility
* Improved: the installer of the self-installing package is now compatible with Windows Vista.
* Improved: import from tpd file and export to tpd file is now compatible with Windows Vista.
