Echo version 1.1.0 build 117
CHANGED: This release uses a different editor control for the “edit clip” dialog. The change was necessary, because the editor I originally used had some random-looking problems with the Addict spellchecker, such as ignoring obvious misspellings, even though they were recognized as such and got the proper red wavy underline. The new editor has an almost identical functionality, with a few minor differences, e.g. no support for marking modified lines. At the moment URL highlighting is not possible either, sorry about that! On the flip side, incremental search is now supported in the editor (press Ctrl+E).
ADDED: Option to automatically mark edited clips as sticky: Preferences -> Editing clips -> MakeEditedClipsSticky. This option is disabled by default.
ADDED: Option to update the date and time of edited clips: Preferences -> Editing clips -> UpdateClipTimestamp. This option is disabled by default.
ADDED: Option to always refresh the current view after editing a clip. Preferences -> Editing clips -> AlwaysRefresh. This option is disabled by default.
ADDED: In the external editor you can now save the text as a new clip instead of replacing the original. Click the “Save as New” button on the toolbar (or command in the context menu). When you use this function, Echo will always refresh the current view.
ADDED: In the external editor, option to keep the editor open after saving a clip. To enable it, click the Options button and make sure “Close Editor on Save” is unchecked. This way you can continue editing a clip after using the Save or Save as New commands.
ADDED: “Refresh View” command under the View menu (Ctrl+R). You can use it to refresh a view manually, for example if the view was not refreshed after editing clips, and the edited clips may no longer belong in the view (e.g. because their text, date or length has changed).
IMPROVED: When you edit a clip in the external editor, Echo no longer suspends capturing clips. This means Echo can now capture text copied inside the editor as well. (When editing a clip in-place, capturing is still suspended, because new clips cannot be added to the list while the in-place editor is active.)
IMPROVED: Echo now properly restores the selection of multiple clips in some situations, e.g. after using the Copy (Ctrl+C) command.
IMPROVED: Loading clips is now faster and Echo uses less memory to display a view than before.
FIXED: When a clip was edited and saved, Echo would not update the clip’s size on the clip information bar (display only).
