What's new in Version 1.2.1 - May 8th 2015

• You can export your document to a Widget. The first time you launch/install a widget, please Control-Click on its icon in the Finder then select the menu item “Open”. This way you will avoid the block for widgets made by undefined developers (you).

• When exporting to PDF, PageMeUp now properly creates clickable text links with text-color and text-style you defined. These links can open an URL with your default browser or send an email with your Email default application.



What's new in Version 1.2 - March 14th 2015

• You can now assign to a button (linked image box) a different rollover image. Then on Safari, when rolling the mouse over the image box, you will see the original image change to the rollover image. To activate this option, select an image box, go to the Inspector:Web panel, mark the “Link” check-box, add a valid target (e.g. an external URL or an internal page different than the current one) then drag or paste an Image into the “On Rollover” image-well. Then, with the HTML tab selected on the left panel, press ⌘-1 to preview the HTML page on Safari. Rollover the image box to see the effect.

• You can now change the Box Fill Color of a button (linked image box or linked text box) when rolling the mouse over the box on Safari. To activate that option, select an image box or a text box, apply a Fill to the box as “Fill Color” or “Gradient Color”, go to the Inspector:Web panel, mark the “Link” check-box, add a valid target (e.g. an external URL or an internal page different than the current one) then mark the “On Rollover:Change Fill” check-box and choose a color. If the box normal Fill is a “Gradient Color” you could choose the 2 gradient rollover colors. Then, with the HTML tab selected on the left panel, press ⌘-1 to preview the HTML page on Safari. Rollover the image to see the effect. Please note that this option won't work without a link to the box or with the "Web:HTML:Export box as image" option on.

• Optimized the HTML code. The text and image boxes not entirely falling within the page borders will be not included within the HTML code, nor exported to the files folder.

• Fixed a bug that, on OS X 10.10, prevented to export PDF images as PNG to HTML.

• Fixed a bug when clicking on the buttons "Go to the Next Page" and "Go to the Previous Page" on the status bar.

• Other minor fixes and improvements.

• Please Note: due to a bug on OS X 10.10, when clicking on a row of the HTML item list (at the left side of the document window), any further pinch-zoom on the page will be running slowly. To return to the correct functionality please select a different application (even the Finder, e.g. with ⌘-Tab) then select back the application PageMeUp.
