Press Ctrl+F.  That goes for the Players tab, Database tab, and Stats tab, as well as any dialog with players listed.  You'll also find Preferences in the Behavior category on the Preferences tab.

You can print the player movement.  On the Preferences tab, select the Behavior category, then check the box next to "Show the Print button on Player Movement dialogs."

Setting up the ability to print receipts with seating assignments on buy-in/rebuy/add-on is certainly possible (as evidenced in the video), but does take some work.  I believe the person in that video used the Find feature on the various buy-in/rebuy/add-on dialogs, along with a player ID added to the database.  The ID was then used by another application to print ID cards with barcodes.  So a scan of the ID card matched an ID of a player in the TD's player database.  The Find feature had the "Auto perform action" option enabled (a checkbox on the buy-in/rebuy/add-on dialogs), so when scanning an ID card, the ID matched a single player, which caused the TD to automatically perform the action (buy-in, rebuy, or add-on) and printed a receipt with their seating assignment.

Use the Page buttons in the upper left.  Alternatively you can modify the preference to list all players in a single page (press the Preferences button in the lower left).

When I click the Chromecast extension button in Chrome, I see options to "Cast tab", "Cast desktop", or "Cast file" (which is titled "Stream a video or audio file").  When I cast my desktop, it allows me to select which one (I have two displays).  I see the entire desktop with all open applications on the TV.

This can be done in the layout pretty easily.  Are you wanting to show another screen that has multiple images on it, or just a single image?

On the Stats tab, press the Info button.  This will list all tournaments found, but omits those that were not used to compute stats.  In your case, it should list 41 tournaments.

Then uncheck the box next to "Hide tournaments that were not used to compute statistics".  You should now see 176 tournaments.  If you don't, it's probably because you've got those 135 missing tournaments in another folder, so the filter isn't filtering them out, it doesn't see them at all.  If you do have 176 tournaments, you can now see why they weren't included.  The "Status" column gives a brief description, but you can double-click a tournament and get a slightly more descriptive reason why tournament isn't included.

Still not available.  At the time of the original post, I was addressing MS updates that caused issues, and making big changes to the application to support higher screen resolutions, since they are becoming much more common.  That took quite some time to complete.  Since that became available, IE 11 has become a major issue so I am now porting the application to a new framework.  I hope when this version is done I can go back to feature updates instead of emergency work to keep the application working.

Help Me / Re: Player chip counts on seating page

The Seating Chart screen doesn't support displaying chip stacks, unfortunately.

The <seatingChart> token does, however, if you don't mind a slightly less aesthetically pleasing version.

Beta Testing / Re: 3.5 Progress

It's been over 3 weeks, time for another update for those who are following along.

- Fixed dialogs: Quick Start, Add Players To Tournament, Table, Sort Tbales, Collapse Order, Compress Seating, Compress Single Table Seating, Locks, Tables Settings, Undo Buy-in Players, Unseat Player, Unseat Table, Toggle Show Player Images, Remove Player From Tournament, Remove Players From Tournament, Players Preferences, Suggest Rounds, Suggest Prizes, and Auto Prizes, Random Player.
- Got Stats to load and display.  Still some work to be done, but this is a good start.
- Fixed context-menu rename/arrange columns on Stats Tab.
- Fixed 'configure columns' and 'set column names' context menu items on Rounds, Prizes, and Stats pages.
- Tackled main dialog code.  Even though this works, it is a bit squirrely and has some issues.  I knew at some point I would have to dive in and just work on it until it's fixed.  Issues were things like:
  - sometimes a dialog just didn't open
  - sometimes the stylesheet isn't found and thus the font adjustment done to every dialog didn't happen, resulting in a dialog with a 6pt font
  - since windows open asynchronously, the "opener" dialog is still active until the child dialog opens allowing the user to click on something.  For example, a button that opens a dialog could be pressed over and over and many dialogs would open
  - window.closed isn't accurate, and thus a window could be opened using a window that is closing as its parent, resulting in weird behavior
  - hotkeys still work on disabled windows, so holding down the ESC key can cause the code to try to open/close the Settings window so fast it confuses the dialog code
- I spent the better part of a week working on the dialog code and now it all seems good.  <fingers crossed>
- Fixed the volume slider control.
- Fixed at least a hundred other things here and there.
- Spent some more time figuring out why dialog sizing works on some dialogs, not on others.  Turns out the dialog sizing code is working as expected, but I identified a number of common differences in Chrome.  This will make fixing the remaining dialogs much easier.  Fixed about a dozen other dialogs that had initial sizing problems.

For example, the Add Players to Tournament dialog looked like:

But now looks like:

Or the Screen Properties dialog, which opened like this:

But now looks like:

Lots more to do...

The Tournament Director currently does not directly support re-entry.  I don't have immediate plans to support it, only because there are more pressing issues to address with the software, but I think it is in the not-to-distant future.  In the meantime, I recommend searching the forums for "re-entry" and seeing how other users have dealt with this.

Yep.  Weird, when I search now I get a lot of results.  But earlier the search came up empty.  Maybe I was in a particular forum and didn't realize it...

What's the original formula?

I thought we had discussed on here before, but my search is coming up empty...

A fair question.

While this is definitely a major change to the software, to be honest most of the change will be practically invisible to the average user.  It will necessitate some change that will result in new/different functionality, but mostly I'm just getting the existing functionality to work on top of a new framework.  One of the most important reasons for this migration is fixing issues with the existing framework: memory leaks being a huge one, as well as fixing the file dialogs, and trying to further immunize the application from Microsoft's changes.

Version 4.0 will contain new features, if/when it happens.  And as such, it's possible it will be an upgrade like 2 -> 3 was (meaning it may require a fee).  Right now I feel I just owe it to my current users to get the application back into a stable state.  Thus, version 3.5.  Your existing v3 licenses will work with it.
