Another update with more bug fixes and new macros

November 10, 2016

Onetastic version 3.2.3 is available with bug fixes, Macro Language updates and new and updated macros in Macroland.

Bug Fixes

Blurry user interface and layout issues in high resolution displays

This caused some user interface elements to be very blurry or incorrectly laid out in dialog boxes on high DPI displays. Now things should be crisp.

Macros don't show up after installing them

For some users, macros wouldn't show up after installing them for the first time. This is now fixed.

Documentation for QueryText function

The Macro Documentation and function reference in Macro Editor was incorrect for QueryText function. Specifically the last parameter was incorrectly documented to do case sensitive search when true, while it was the opposite.

String literals "." and "-." confused Macro Editor

Macro Editor would get confused if literals "." or "-." was used in a macro.

Macro Language Updates

Paragraph.text property

Paragraph objects get a new property "texts" which returns an array of Text objects in that paragraph. This will make it easier to inspect paragraph contents. Previously the only way was QueryObjects and QueryText methods which gave undesired results when there are indented paragraphs.

Macro Updates

Following macros in Macroland are updated:

Outlook Email Date Stamp

This macro is now updated to fix issues with time being off by 1 hour. It will detect timezone automatically and will no longer ask for it.

Extract highlighted Text

This macro was broken in a recent update. It is now all good again.

Collapse Pages in Notebook

This macro was giving an error if the notebook has pages in the recycle bin.

Search Multi-Keywords

This macro was also broken in an update and it wasn't reporting the search results. It now does.

New Macros

Several new macros have been added to Macroland since the last update. Check them out:
