Version 1.5 | Release Date: 2010-01-22 | Download

Improvements in this latest release focused on three key areas of usability:

(1) Formatting and filtering the charts - The tool palettes have been re-engineered to simplify the handling of formatting tools and filters. Either double click a tool in the palette or drag to the chart. Alternately, use the keyboard to add or remove a tool or filter.

(2) Improved visual cues - The user can define the contrast between selected or unselected chart objects (bars in a chart or pie segments), making it easier to see the items selected. In addition, formatting tools and filters are highlighted, both on the charts and the palettes, when selected. The cursor changes to reflect the actions applied to the chart.

(3) Data selection - Improvements in the way that the filters are combined to select ranges of the users data. Using both the upper and lower filters within a dimension allows specific ranges to be selected or excluded. These can then be further adjusted by clicking individual chart items.

Further improvements addressed the reliability of saving and opening analysis files. This included minor changes to the formatting of the saved analysis files. Older files are automatically reformatted when first used.
