What's Newâ€¢ FotoMagico now optionally sends usage and diagnostic data to Boinx Software, to help it improve its products and services.
â€¢ Borders around layers or masks are now drawn antialiased to avoid jaggies.
â€¢ When adding a mask to a layer, a bit of softness is automatically applied, so that the edges are antialiased and jaggies are avoided.
â€¢ Edges of layers are now nicely antialiased. This helps to avoid jaggies when rotating layers.
â€¢ Oval masks with softness now look much nicer.
â€¢ A border is no longer overlapping the layer. This avoids visual artefacts when the layer is semi-transparent.
â€¢ Reversing animation now works again.
â€¢ Reducing the length of audio to the duration of the audio file now works reliably again.
â€¢ Cursors during drag and drop in the Storyboard are now correct and indicate the intended action.
â€¢ The selection frame in the Stage now looks much nicer and separates better from various backgrounds. This helps when working with multiple layers.
â€¢ When working with multiple layers in the Stage, the selected layer is now given priority over the topmost clicked layer. A single click still selects the topmost layer. This makes working with multiple overlapping layer much easier.
â€¢ Cursors in the Stage are now more reliable (especially around the corners of layers).
â€¢ Get Info now works again for audio files.
â€¢ Get Info can now always be opened, even if there is no selection.
â€¢ Getting info for movie files is now more reliable.
â€¢ Starting playback somewhere in the middle of a slideshow is now more reliable.
â€¢ Sharing for iPad now also works for the iPad mini.
â€¢ If Toast 11 is installed, Toast is now disabled in the DVD sharing options (because Toast 11 has a bug in its AppleScript implementation). If you want to use Toast 11 to burn DVDs, you need to drag the exported QuickTime file manually into Toast.
â€¢ The teleprompter is now more reliable if two slideshow document are open at the same time.
â€¢ Various small fixes.
