Update with many bug fixes and macro improvements

October 20, 2016

Onetastic version 3.2.1 is available with many bug fixes. Also several macros in Macroland has been updated with improvements and many new macros are added since the last update.

Bug Fixes

Cannot click OK on dialog box with fields that aren't required

This prevented Search & Replace macro to replace a text with empty text.

Macros ribbon tab is all caps in OneNote 2016

If you keep your macros in a separate tab this inconsistency may have been annoying for you.

DateTime from XML string parses incorrectly

DataTime processor in macros was parsing and generating string representations of dates incorrectly under certain cases where DST is or isn't in effect. This resulted in macros reading or outputting times off by an hour or two.

Page.orientation cannot be set

Page.orientation property is read-write but trying to modify it would cause a macro error

Expression editor resets the expression when clicking OK without changes

Expression editor incorrectly removed an existing expression when closing it without changes using OK button.

Custom styles are missing on a fresh install

Multiple users noted that Onetastic doesn't install the 17 built-in custom styles unless you are upgrading from an older version.

More Xml invalid errors

One more case of "Xml Invalid" error was identified that happens mostly on macros that read multiple pages.

Macro Updates

Following macros in Macroland are updated:

Where am I+

This macro now correctly displays the section group hierarchy

Insert Monthly Calendar - Alternate

Now displays the current month/year selected on the dialog box

Resize Images by Pixels

Updated with an option to run only on selected images as opposed to all images on a page

Set Section Color

Attachment List in Current Notebook

John C: They will collapse the subpages under their parent page. You won't see anything if you don't have subpages

What is the purpose of all of the "collapse" commands in the "navigation" group? E.g., "collapse pages", "collapse pages in notebook", "collapse pages in notebooks", "collapse pages in section group". There is no description and I can't see that it does anything when I test it.
