Title: 3.2 beta 3
Post by: Corey Cooper on January 25, 2013, 10:40:18 PM
This is version 3.2 beta 3.  

Standard beta testing disclaimer:
This is a BETA release of the software.  Beta means I am not aware of any bugs, but I'd like to get some more testing done before an official release.

If you plan to participate in the beta test, backup your data first.  This can never be stated too often.  The TD can do this for you, just press the "Backup" button on the Database tab and check all options.  You should do this whether you try a beta version or not.

The user manual has still not been fully updated.  Below is the relevant part of the changes.txt file (changes since 3.2 beta 2).

Thank you again to everyone who will participate in this test release.  Please post or email any feedback you have.

Edit: 3.2 beta 3 has been superceded by 3.2 beta 4.  See

All good, some really helpful updates especially the roundoff, auto search, and hhmm v HHMM set-up, just tested, and only issue I have found so far is that it is still forgetting my spreadsheet columb prefs on the Rounds tab.

For anyone following this thread, this isn't an issue.

Gave 3.2b3 some serious testing since launch, and the only issue I have is the column prefs on a spreadsheet rounds tab, which keeps resetting to default after the program is closed for a while.

Other than that, all the tokens, conditions and rounding you have added for me are working a treat, many many thanks for all these items!

That is a very strange issue.  I'm just not seeing it.  And since all preferences are saved together, it seems like if you lost one you'd lose them all...

I'll take another look.
