SmartEdit Version 3.411 Released (September 1st, 2014)

  1. Windows 8.1 release. This release addresses a number of issues unique to Windows 8.1.
  2. Reporting improvements: Changes have been made to the HTML, Text, Excel and PDF reports to improve readability and generation speed. Reports in these formats can now be output for extremely large documents (1 million + words), without difficulty. No novel is too long!
  3. XLSX and CSV reports have now been combined into a single Excel report that can be opened by most spreadsheet software, including Microsoft Excel.
  4. For large documents (750+ pages), the HTML, Text and Excel reports are the quickest to generate. PDF documents take longer.
  5. Report files are now opened automatically once the report generation completes.

SmartEdit Version 3.101 Released (August 29th, 2013)

  1. Minor release, but contains key new functionality -- free to all licensed users
  2. New "Export Reports & Print Reports" toolbar
  3. Export results of all checks to Excel (XLSX), CSV, Text (TXT), PDF or HTML
  4. Export results of individual checks in the same formats
  5. Print results of single checks or of all checks

This is an important release, as it removes the need for users to edit their work within SmartEdit. Many writers prefer to use their own word processor for editing. The new reports make this possible, as the results of SmartEdit's checks can be output, then referenced later when editing in Word, Scrivener, or any other word processor. Full details of the report and printing options in the help section.
