PerfectTablePlan v6.2.0

This release adds enhancements and bug fixes to v6.1.3 for Windows and Mac. You will require a v6 licence key to unlock the full functionality. v6 is a paid upgrade from v5 (free if you purchased v5 within 3 months of v6 being released). You can buy a new licence key here (or upgrade from a previous version here). See also our upgrade FAQ.

We recommend that you back-up 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 v6 plans into versions of the software before v6 may lose some data.

1. PerfectTablePlan can now seat guests by order of precedence, as well as by proximity or randomly. Set the appropriate setting in the Preferences window:

automatically seat by order of precedence

Sort guests in the Guests pane according to the order you want them seated. Lock any guests you don't want reassigned. Then sort the tables/rows in the Schematic pane according to the order you want to assign guests to them. Then select File>Auto Assign Seats.

In this example we have sorted guests by a custom field called 'Rank', then group, then title:

2. The VDU chart pane can now display guest seating by Display name or Group, as well as Last First and First Last.

3. The sort orders in the Guests and Groups panes are now saved with the plan.

4. Additional substitution text {guest_first_name_initials} and {guest_last_name_initials} have been added. Thanks to John S. for the suggestion.

4. When adding new tables the Create field in the insert table window now has a hint on how many tables/rows you will need to seat all guests.

6. Fixed a bug with columns in the Schematic pane that meant the locked icon was not shown in the correct column and the Total column was shown when show scores was unchecked.

7. Fixed an issue where the Print window was sometimes too tall.

Advanced and Professional editions

8. The VDU chart pane can now display guests by custom field of type selection. Thanks to Sebastian G., for the suggestion.
