Anyone who still has problems with updates please email so we can check your account
New versions of Mac and Windows software are posted today.
The Windows version gets ability to distinguish between 1/4 and 3/4 stitch when mixing two 3/4 in the same square. This must be enabled on the settings menu otherwise program continues as before and saved files are in original format. Currently only applies to symbol charts. Updates are made to mulilingual, Publisher, Russian and Broderi variants.
The Mac version gets video help in many dialogs and a manual on the Help menu plus export to pc-stitch and patternmaker. Can also load patterns from the new Windows version (but will not show the extra shading on 3/4 stitch until next version). It also now supports cyrillic characters in filenames. Checking for updates on the Help menu should now work correctly - with message if there are none available.
