Reunion 9.06

Posted by admin on May 21, 2008

Reunion 9.06 has been released.

New features :

• .Mac and iDisk integration. When you create a report, look for “iDisk” in the Destination popup menu.
• Ability to create a movie file of a slideshow.
• New slideshow preferences: background color, drop shadow/size/color, text colors, bold text, more transitions, and a sample preview.
• New editing options for slideshow items: edit the name and description of a slide directly in the slideshow list, insert a text-only slide, images can be dragged to the slideshow list from the Finder, iPhoto, and family card.
• Automatically open your family file – When you open Reunion, the most recent family file with which you were working will automatically open. This is a new global option in Reunion Preferences / Startup which is turned ON by default.
• New Treetops Report button.

• In Found Lists, you can now save a default setup (column and sort settings) that will apply to new found lists. Defaults for lists of people and couples are saved separately. To do this, open or create a found list and setup the columns/sorting the way you desire. Then choose Save Default Column & Sort Setup from the Found Lists popup menu.
• Enhanced sorting in lists – when sorting lists of couples and when sorting family group sheets, a new “Last Name, First Name” sorting preset appears in the Sort popup menu (Note: this only appears in new family files). Also added “First & Mid Name” a sort field option which appears when you click the title of a column in a list (This appears for all family files).
• Use of abbreviations in chart boxes has been enhanced. If there is no “short” abbreviation for a field name (in the field preferences), then no delimiter is added. If the short abbreviation ends with punctuation, the delimiter will be a space character. This change provides the ability to have chart boxes without field names or abbreviations, in addition to using your own special punctuation.
• Added Unique ID to text file import and export.
