Version 2.0.7 | Release Date: 2010-03-23 | Download

Bug Fixes 2.0.7

  • Changed some of the resource loading sequence to avoid a rare but annoying bug that would break the user interface.

    Bug Fixes 2.0.6
  • To help avoid bad caching of data while generating invoices or reports we now use a fresh instance of `MGTemplateEngine` each time we generate HTML. (Matt Edwards)
  • Augmented the `-isDeleted` method on all the core objects to return YES when their parent object has been deleted. This caused some reports to show incorrect data. For example, if a deleted client's transactions were still included in the income report. (Matt Edwards)
  • When you publish an invoice a charge transaction is created. Previously that transaction's date was always 'today' .. now it will use the sent date of the invoice you are publishing. (Brian B. Burton)
  • Added some code to the token field editor delegate that should allow you to use white spaces in your invoice number scheme. This seems to require 10.6. (LongWelsh)
Version 2.0.5 | Release Date: 2010-03-18 | Download

Bug Fixes

  • Duplicating an invoice will no longer duplicate deleted line items that were present (but not displayed) on the original. (Brian B. Burton)
  • Sorting by invoice numbers that contain date tokens has been improved to make sure it takes into consideration all the digits in the string. (Ted Wood)
Version 2.0.4 | Release Date: 2010-03-13 | Download

Bug Fixes

  • Some users experienced an issue where-in the to do item table selection would unselect after they started a timer and every time the timer incremented. This should be fixed now.
  • If you have an invoice number scheme that involves the sent date and a business/client incrementing number, previous versions of ProfitTrain would incorrectly use the 'next' number when adjusting the invoice number. It still does use this number but we try to catch this edge case and decrement the number when needed. Long term we need to make some model changes to better support this use case.
Version 2.0.3 | Release Date: 2010-03-05 | Download

Bug Fixes

  • New Clients were not inheriting the invoice footer text from the business. This is now fixed. If you need to update existing clients you can use the utility in the business editor to update the footer field for all clients of the business. (Dale Williams)
  • If a business had an Invoice Number Scheme that used date tokens, the resulting invoices were not properly updating their invoice numbers when the sent date changed (manually or during the publish event). This should work now.
Version 2.0.2 | Release Date: 2010-03-02 | Download

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash bug if you tried to send an invoice to the printer via the Publish sheet. (carl)
Version 2.0.1 | Release Date: 2010-03-02 | Download

Invoice Numbers

  • Enhanced the utility that let's you re-assign invoice numbers after editing the schema.
  • Changed the way in which invoice numbers are sorted in the invoice table. Previously ProfitTrain used string comparisons, it now uses numeric. This should help people form Billable which used a starting invoice number of 1. (splee, Rob Roye)
  • Known Issue: If you set up an invoice number schema that utilizes the date is does not work at the moment.

Other Changes

  • The date formatter has been improved to handle short hand dates formats that are used outside the US, such as 'DD.MM'. These dates will auto append a period and add the current year if needed.
  • You can now enter in a blank invoice label value under the translations tab in the Business Editor. Previously blank values caused all labels not to work. (Jankees van Woezik)
  • You can now use the `Edit > Delete` menu option to delete objects from tables and source lists.
  • You can now use the keyboard delete key to delete objects from source lists.
  • Added `nowrap="nowrap"` to the `tfoot` area of both templates to prevent non-US currency symbols from wrapping.
  • Removed some excessive logging that was added to debug source lists right before we shipped 2.0.
  • ProfitTrain will now properly remember in-between launches the last active business you were using.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that would show the improper state of Active/Inactive in the client inspector. (Chris Mullin)
  • Fixed a bug that would cause an error under certain occasions while registering. (jtchambliss)
  • If you were editing the business footer text setting and hit the button to copy the setting to the existing clients we did not end editing before bringing up the utility sheet so it would copy the old value. (Hamish Rickerby)
