v5.2.2 now available
We have put out a new release with a number of
minor enhancements and bug fixes.
have put particular effort into improving how PerfectTablePlan handles
name layout for Masonic and Livery Company type events:
- There are now additional Name only (extended radial)
and Name only (extended
banquet) layouts which give more space to guest names.
These are particularly useful when some guests have
long names/titles and you have a single table (e.g. an
E-shaped table) or widely spaced banquet tables.
and Name only (banquet)
layouts (and the extended versions mentioned above) now allow more
guest names on the outside of E-shaped tables.
- PerfectTablePlan scales fonts smaller if it
can’t fit names into the space available on the Floor Plan and Table Plan panes
using the user-selected font. However it sometimes scaled fonts smaller
than required. This is now fixed.
only (radial) and Name
only (banquet) now do not wrap text across multiple lines,
unless the display name includes a ** line break.
- The position of 45 degree text in Name only (radial)
layout has been modified to stop the text overlapping the table.
- We have added a new
'livery_sample_Advanced_edition_v14.tp' sample plan. This
PDF from the sample plan shows that you can display 148 names
legibly on a single A4 sheet.
Note that the E-shaped table type is only
available in PerfectTablePlan Advanced and Professional editions.
We have also fixed a crash bug:
- Previously PerfectTablePlan could crash when
changing the number of seats in an E-shaped table in the Schematic pane. This
is now fixed.
Fixed some performance issues:
- Previously it was very slow to delete multiple
guests if the Proximity pane was visible. This is
- Previously snap to grid, room resizing and
moving tables with cursor keys in the Floor Plan
pane could be very slow for large plans. This is now fixed.
And fixed some annoyances:
This release is a free
upgrade for all customers with a valid PerfectTablePlan v5
licence. We recommend that all customers upgrade to this release.
- Previously the Table Plan
pane zoomed back after dropping a guest. This is now fixed.
- Previously the Floor Plan pane
could change scroll position or zoom level after undo/redo. This is now

We are making this release available to newsletter
subscribers a few

10 years old!
was first released at the end of February 2005. Despite a very low key
start, selling only through a single wedding website with no
advertising, we were delighted to make our first sale within 24 hours.
In truth, the version was pretty basic but we
have come a long way since then! PerfectTablePlan is now
regularly used to seat
celebrities, heads of state and royalty.
Many of our original v1 customers are still
customers, having since upgraded to more recent versions.
would like to say a big thank you to all our customers for their
support over the last ten years. Not just financially, but also for
taking the time to send feedback, report bugs and recommend
PerfectTablePlan to others.
Here's to the next 10 years!
