Attention ParkBench Visual PST users - we are in the final testing of our newest version of the software - VERSION 2.6b4 (BETA) - here are the general news related to this upcoming release.

  1. Import encoding fixes
  2. New minimum size for objects
  3. Resizable transcript/standard edit windows
  4. Paste/replace into text object
  5. Create new text object from text on the clipboard
  6. Splitting of text objects with tab tags and multi lines into separate objects
  7. Special view for editing the current text object (with an additional quick edit mode)

SOON EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THESE GREAT FEATURES

#2 - In 2.5 if you selected an object and placed it on the page - then moved off of that object - the minimum size of that object was so small you couldn't easily find it. In 2.6b4 - it will find these small nearly hidden objects and enlarge them for you to easily remove them!

#3- When using either the transcript or standard tool object - you now can extend the edit window to show you more information
expand

#4/#5 - you now can copy and paste from Word and our tool scripts out any of the Word unneccessarily code. Copy from Word, press control-click on a Mac to show prompt on the left- Create Text Object From Clipboard and a text object appears and pastes in your text (pictured on the right!

#6 - Those who were formally trained in object reports will remember the tabto code. We were all taught to hard code all the DAT codes to a specific position. Remember using the ruler and graph paper. In a previous release (2.5) we introduced GROUPING. So folks have asked us to figure out a way to strip out these tabto codes.
LEFT IMAGE: Simply highlight an objects that has hard coded tabto's and control-click and use the LAST OPTION
CENTER IMAGE: It strips out the tabc and creates individual text items in the same relative position
RIGHT IMAGE: When using tabc,tabr, tabl - since VST can't now how long to DAT data will be, the relative position is the same but not exact position. Just move them back and group them!

#7 - Text Editor will now be part of 2.6b4 - we're still testing it and the final location on your screen is being considered. Quickly edit text in the resizable window above the ruler
