Version Change History

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.9 (07/06/18)

New:

1. Added a new Record Size field to the Record Information window (Show Record Information under the View menu).

2. Added a toolbar button that brings up the Record Information window. The User Guide for this item has been updated.

3. Changed the default filename extension for files exported as tab-delimited from .tab.txt to .tab.

4. Added a new Set Freeform Text Area Background Color item to the General tab in the Datafile Settings window. The User Guide for this item has been updated.

5. Added a Warn when datafile size is greater than 1 GB checkbox to the General tab of the Datafile Settings window. This was added because it has come to my attention that datafiles around 2 GB in size cannot be opened in iData Kwik, so this warning will give the user a chance to split the datafile, or otherwise reduce its size, before it is too late. See Datafile Settings in the User Guide.

6. iData Kwik now recognizes phone numbers preceded by tel:// as telephone number links. These links can be dialed using your  iPhone if it is set up.Read the Apple article HERE. The User Guide for links has been updated.

7. Added a new Disable Search Option Button menu item to the Find sub-menu under the Edit menu. Clicking this menu item disables the Search Option Button (the magnifying glass icon) at the left of the Find Box, and the item name then changes to Enable Search Option Button. Disabling the Search Option Button will ensure that you don't accidentally change your search mode without noticing it.

Bug Fixes:

1. Fixed a bug that prevented the last remaining selected record from being deleted even if there were other unselected records. (If the last remaining selected record is deleted, all remaining records will become selected.)

2. Fixed a bug where the Split Datafile function (under the File menu) failed to strip out the records that were split off into the new datafile.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.8 (05/26/18)

New:

1. Fixed a bug that caused the Find and Replace menu item to be unavailable even when a datafile was open.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.7 (09/26/17)

New:

1.Updated Dropbox synchronization routines to use v.2 of the Dropbox Software Development Kit. This was done because v.1 of the SDK will no longer function after 09/30/17. This change means that Dropbox synchronization will be available only under OS 10.10 or later, although iData Pro Kwik will run under OS 10.8 or later.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.6 (03/12/17)

New:

1. Sync IDs are no longer checked before performing local synchronization. They were never checked before for Dropbox and WiFi synchronization, and it is really unnecessary, since field structure is checked prior to synchronization, to assure that all fields match. The main function of Sync IDs now is to prevent the deletion or addition of fields in the Modify Fields function.

2. Added two new functions for sorting text in the Freeform Text Area (FTA) of a record as lines. They are Sort Current FTA By Line and Reverse Sort Current FTA By Line, both under the Edit menu.

3. Added a new item, Current Field in Next Record to the Activate sub-menu, under the Edit menu. The command key for this menu item is option-command-] (option-command-right square bracket). In the case of freeform datafiles, the Freeform Text Area is activated in the next record, since there are no fields.

4. Added a new section to the User Guide: Efficient Data Entry in Field-based Datafiles. A link to this can be found under Section 1 of the User Guide Index.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.5 (02/06/17)

New:

1. Now, when a new field-based datafile is created, the divider between the fields and the Freeform Text Area is moved down enough to show at least one record.

Bug Fix:

1. Fixed problem that occurred when text was selected in in the Freeform Text Area and a file or folder link was inserted.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.4 (01/12/17)

New:

1. When a search finds the target text in the Freeform Text Area, the text color is now temporarily changed to a color. This makes it much easier to see the selected text when the FTA is not active. The default found text color is red. See in User Guide.

2. When a search finds the target text in one or more fields, one field is made active and the field text is changed to a color. See in User Guide.

    NOTE: Since the Find Box will not be active in this case, you cannot use a simple return or shift-return to repeat the search. So, it is probably best to simply get into the habit of using command- G for forward searches and command-shift-G for reverse searches in all cases.

3. Added a Set Found Text Color: item to the Preferences window. The default color is red, but this may not be the best color for everyone.

Bug Fix:

1. Fixed a bug where importing Apple Mail and other formats could cause iData Kwik to hang.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.3 (91/24 /16)

Bug Fix:

1. Fixed a bug where the states of the Find buttons were not being retained when a datafile was closed and reopened.

New Features and Changes in iData Kwik 1.0.1 (08/15 /16)

New:

1. Broke the General tab of the Datafile Settings window into two -- General and Always. This was done to make the window fit smaller laptop screens.

Bug Fix:

1. Fixed a bug that caused split view of a freeform datafile to fail to remain completely closed when the datafile was closed and reopened.
