New Features
  • Make Same Horizontal/Vertical Spacing – make the horizontal/vertical spacing (per the selected spacing mode) between the selected shapes the same as that between the reference shape and the first selected shape. There are four horizontal spacing modes and four vertical spacing modes.
  • Pick Up Horizontal/Vertical Spacing – pick up the horizontal/vertical spacing (non-overlapping mode only) between the reference shape and the first selected shape. The picked up spacing may be applied in any direction using the Adjoin tools with the Spacing option selected.
  • Apply picked up Spacing option in Adjoin tools – the picked up spacing may be applied in any direction.
  • Text Split Join – if one shape is selected, split each text paragraph to its own shape; if multiple shapes are selected, join all the text into the first shape and delete all the selected shapes except for the first.
  • Added labels (not displayed on the ribbon) to all tools for ease of reference when customizing the ribbon
  • Added documentation to the User Guide regarding automating ToolsToo so that multiple tools can be invoked in a single click

  • Default file names created by the Extract Slides tool are now adjusted so as to replace characters that are invalid in file names (<, >, :, ”, /, \, |, ?, *, line break)  with spaces and then trim any leading or trailing spaces
Infrastructure Changes
