PerfectTablePlan v5.2.3

This release adds 7 enhancements and 7 bug fixes to version 5.2.2. You will require a version 5 licence key to unlock the full functionality. You can buy a licence key here (or upgrade from a previous version here). This upgrade is free to all customers with a valid v5 licence key.

We recommend that you back-up any important plan files before installing any new release.

The download links are at the bottom of the page.

Backward/forward compatibility

This version can read plan (.tp) files saved by any earlier version of PerfectTablePlan. But reading v5.2.3 plans into versions of the software before v5.2.0 may lose some data.

The following enhancements have been made since version 5.2.2:

All editions

Windows and Macintosh

1. PerfectTablePlan now better handles importing CSV files delimited by semi-colons rather than commas (which often seems to be the case on Mac OS X). [Added in v5.2.3]

2. You are now only prompted to load a recovery plan file if the recovery plan file is different to the last saved plan. [Added in v5.2.3]

3. PerfectTablePlan now better handles commas in the suffix field during import. [Added in v5.2.3]

4. Carriage returns in field values (e.g. in the Notes field) are now handled better when exporting data. [Added in v5.2.3]

Windows only

5. If a file is open in read-only mode the file is checked for updates every time the main window is moved to the front, in addition to checking every 20 seconds. [Added in v5.2.3]

6. .xlsm files are now treated as Excel files by PerfectTablePlan. [Added in v5.2.3]

Advanced and Professional editions

Windows and Macintosh

7. You can now add a new value to a custom field of type selection by selecting <new value> from the drop-down list in the Guest Properties window or in Edit mode in the Guests or Groups pane. [Added in v5.2.3]
