DON'T KNOW YOUR ESCORT CARDS FROM YOUR TABLE CARDS?
===================================================

We have re-written the table planning hints and tips section of the website. We hope you find it useful:
www.perfecttableplan.com/html/tips.html

MACINTOSH
=========

PerfectTablePlan 2.0.1 is for sale on MacOSX 10.3.9 and later (it will not work on earlier versions such as MacOSX 10.2.8).

If you have a valid version 2 key for Windows you can also use it on Macintosh. You can download the Macintosh version here:
www.perfecttableplan.com/html/download_for_mac.html

BUGS
====

Please be aware of the following 2 bugs. We intend to fix both of these bugs in the next release. If you are aware of any other bugs, please email us.

Drag and drop doesn't work when plan file location includes a non-ASCII or hash (#) character

Description:
If you save a plan file with a location that includes a hash (#) character or a character that is not part of the standard ASCII set you may not be able to perform drag and drop operations for that plan (e.g. dragging guests to seats). NB/ Pretty much everything on your keyboard is an ASCII character.

Applies to:
All versions of PerfectTablePlan up to 2.0.1 for Windows and Macintosh.

Workaround:
Don't use hash and non-ASCII characters. For example save:
c:\•folder•\plan#1.tp
as:
c:\folder\plan_1.tp

Comment:
Our thanks to Mike B for helping us track this down.

'File'|'Open recent' doesn't prompt for unsaved changes

Description:
When you select 'File'|'Open' you will be prompted to save any unsaved changes to the current plan. This is not the case for 'File'|'Open recent'.

Applies to:
All versions of PerfectTablePlan up to 2.0.1 for Windows and Macintosh.

Workaround:
Remember to save your changes before selecting 'File'|'Open recent' or use 'File'|'Open' instead.

MULTIPLE USER ACCESS
====================

Currently we don't have file locking in PerfectTablePlan. This means that 2 users with the same plan file open via a shared drive can overwrite each other's changes. We are investigating adding file locking to prevent this occurring.

VERSION 2.1
===========

We are currently working on PerfectTablePlan v2.1 . As well as the bug fixes and file locking, as mentioned above, we also intend to add a few of the most frequently requested enhancements.

TRAINING MOVIE
==============

If you would like a more in-depth understanding of PerfectTablePlan, but don't have the time or inclination to read the extensive documentation, please watch our 15-minute online movie:
www.perfecttableplan.com/html/movie__2.html

You will need the 'flash' multi-media plug-in installed in your browser. Most people already have this.

UNSUBSCRIBING
=============

We send out a short newsletter email every few months. If you don't want to receive further emails from us please unsubscribe.
