v4.2.4 now available
v4.2.4 is now available. It fixes 3 bugs that have been reported and
adds a couple of minor enhancements. It is a free
upgrade for all users with a
valid v4 licence. Changes include:
- Using Shift+Click
All it was possible to select guests, groups or tables
that had been hidden by typing text into the Search field in the Guests, Groups or Schematic panes.
This could result in unexpected behaviour, for example when deleting
items. This is now fixed so that items hidden by typing into the Search field cannot
be selected, even with Edit>Select
All. This is more in line with standard Windows and Mac
- Attempting to drag a locked guest in the Floor plan pane
sometimes caused cascading error windows. This is now fixed.
- If you filled in the Suffix field for any
guest, this became the default suffix for any new guests. The default
suffix is now always blank.
We are making this release available to newsletter

support if you find any bugs, so that we can fix them ASAP.

you (probably) didn't know about table plans
Table plans can be a bit of a cultural minefield. Here are a few of the
things we have have found out about table plans along the way:
- At a Saudi Arabian wedding reception there is
only one man in the room (the groom).
- In the USA there is a dot in "Mr." and "Mrs.".
In the UK there isn't.
- Indian weddings typically don't have seating
plans. An Anglo-Indian wedding planner told us that over a thousand
guests were invited to her wedding, and she has no idea how many
actually turned up!
- Most events are seated male-female-male-female.
But some business events are seated male-male-female-female. One of our
customers referred to this as 'one you want to work with and one you
want to sleep with'.
- In the USA seating charts are
typically displayed by guest. In the UK seating charts are
typically displayed by table.
- The capitalization of names is
important in some countries. For example, in the Netherlands "van" may
imply nobility or royalty, but "Van" doesn't.
- In a survey
we commissioned, 84% of wedding guests prefer assigned seating.
