PerfectTablePlan v7 news

We are making steady progress on PerfectTablePlan v7.

Currently we are working on updating the icons in the user interface. The icons currently used in v6 were first introduced in v5 in 2012. Some of these icons are only available in 32 x 32 pixel sizes, which makes them look either tiny or blurry on modern 4K and 8K monitors. So we have switched to a higher resolution set of icons that also have a more modern look and feel.

The icons aren’t finalized yet. But here is a sneak peek of what v7 currently looks like.

On Windows:

On Mac:

v7 will also be better at handling other aspects of high resolution displays.

There is a lot more work to do yet, but we hope to have an early test version that customers can try in a few months.
