Whats New/Fixed?

  • FIXED: ‘Start-up Fullscreen Mode’ would not apply when double clicking on an ExamText file to open it. Therefore, allowing a candidate to bypass the full screen restrictions.
  • UPGRADED: TextControl has been upgraded to x19 Service Pack 2 (contains numerous fixes).
  • UPGRADED: EWP is compiled and written with Visual Studio, which has been upgraded to version 16.9.4
  • ADDED: “SaveWithoutPrompt” config option has been added for those that wish to save the file directly without displaying the Save Prompt Dialog box, basically suppressing it. 0 = Shoe Save Dialog box as normal, 1 = Suppress (Do not show).
  • ADDED: With the above in mind, if you now turn on the config option “SaveAs_NoOverwrite”, every time you click on SaveAs or the document autosaves, it will create a new file with the Date/Time appended to its filename. The same approach used by the autobackup function.

FIXED: Issue on start-up if the Windows Temp folder was not writeable for the log file to be generated. The default log file will now be stored on the programdata folder. If that fails it, will not produce a log file.
