An undo bug was found with version 184.108.40.206 and we have been tracking it with the help of some users who were able to intermittently reproduce this problem and kindly sent us their log files so that our search was narrowed considerably. Thanks very much for that help!
This has been fixed.
4 Different Methods for having a background picture now exist - firstly the image that is selectable, that you are already familiar with, secondly an unselectable image type, which is easier to e.g. add labels to etc, a background fixed and background floating types... that are truely in the background not on the card surface.
More sophistication has been added to 'auto backup' and restore with backup occurring to different files if restart or an error is noted.
Backup is also to the primary file every second cycle.
Next update will have our first 'Animation Design' functionality available to 'Expert Edition' users... and visible to view in the tutorials which are going to be moved exclusively to a RecallPlus chapter format from the present online ones.
Problem with 'Next Test' re-docking the Revision and Testing Window Fixed.

Expert edition release... see pages on predicting your study time needs. Further improvements to this study time need predictive capacity will be released over time... we aim ultimately have some of our staff dedicated to this functionality alone... as it is very important. We are looking for your support to improve this. We need you to email us your 'forgetting curves' files periodically, so that we can accumulate 'typical' forgetting rates for many people, to incorporate into the 'defaults' of the program.
Double click on color selector buttons to auto select the last color again... speeds up your color selections to make making memorable cards faster.
Improved options in smart split including split by line into parallel or serial ideas, and Split into entirely unrelated cards, rather than only using wormholes.
Print flashcards more easily with our 'back side' of flashcard printing functionality. Specifically, print out your cards, then select 'flashcard' in the print dialog, place the printed sheets upside down but same way up and print the 'back sides' of the cards. You will shortly be able to add a number and a title to the cards also.
Better linking of associations to your ideas. The Associations previously used to connect to the midpoint of the ideas, but we now connect to the 'nearside' which is more natural and useful.
Fixes for reported problems - thanks for the feedback!
Intermittent GDI leak when saving images... workaround developed... requested supplier of graphical component fix problem. Previously this problem resulted in some graphical components going blank in RecallPlus, until the program was closed and re-opened. Affected only heavy importers of images... including RecallPlus team members! No data loss involved, but annoying problem.
Wormhole this idea and child, now uses private clipboard, doesn't interfere with public clipboard, AND takes with it the enhancers that you are using to improve your memory for the ideas that are going down the wormhole.
Still looking for bug induced apparently by completing the addition of an enhancer, either a text or a circle enhancer... if anyone has any idea how to reproduce this bug, then please let us know.
3020's The issues addressed include
Standard chapters are now viewable by the Evaluation Edition of the program. This means that educators can distribute notes freely without the students actually purchasing RecallPlus.
Students will learn faster due to the proven benefits of using more images/diagrams and the ability to organize notes in the way which reflects how one thinks about a topic.
The students however cannot edit nor test themselves on the notes until they upgrade.
Therefore there are advantages over paper/wordprocessed notes and more if they upgrade.
Addition of an image and sound library.
Addition of improved MP3 recording and EDITING.
Between the 2 of these, you have the ability to learn and study more efficiently because of the increased 'wow' factor you can easily add to your notes...
We have added a data security measure... specifically the temp directory stores for a week at a time, a .bak copy of your chapters.
You are still advised to backup as usual, however this measure makes it increasingly unlikely irrespective of the problem's source, for you to end up losing more than 15 mins of work even if you have a complete power loss !
Chapters can now be compressed to approximately 1/10 of their previous size... for more details see compression in the 'windows style help'. Mostly you will NOT use this feature as it doubles save time... but if you are emailing chapters to friends....
Bug fixes include improved saving of images. There was a bug where re-loading of images at times didn't work. This was a fault of the graphics component we have purchased for you. We have a workaround for it, and if any user has a 'blank' image, we can retrieve it for you, from your chapter, if you send us that chapter. There is no actual data loss.
There was also a problem with saving of text enhancers, where there was a size change that occurred if you zoom back and forth and save repeatedly. This appears to have been partially resolved in the latest release of the graphics component independantly of our efforts. We have added a workaround for the remaining error in the component.
As usual please let us know ASAP if you have further requests or find an issue you would like addressed.
