  • + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now you can have 10 user buttons. They all default to the magnolia icon but it's easy to define a custom icon, see below...
  • + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now you can enter multi-line scripts (and hence also multi-scripts) directly in the button definition. A new dialog "Edit User Button" is at your service, available from the context menu of each User Button.
  • + Custom Toolbar Buttons: Now you can define icons for your buttons. Simply state any existing file or folder, and its icon will be used for the button. Relative and portable paths are supported, as well as environment variables. Also generic patterns are allowed, e.g. "*.jpg".
    If the toolbar has large icons, stretching or shrinking to 24x24 pixels would be needed, but experience shows that the quality of scaled icons is not satisfying, so I opted for the following:
    - If you point to an ICO file then the first contained icon
      resource will be used on the large toolbar. Optimal results are
      achieved if this is a 24x24 icon resource. Other sizes are
      scaled. For the small toolbar this ICO file's small system icon
      is used.
    - If you point to any other file type or folder, then its small
      system icon (16x16) is used on the small and the large toolbar
      without any scaling.
    In other words, if you know how to make icons you can create high quality custom icons for the large and the small toolbar.
  • * List | Details View | Line Numbers Column: Now the right border color of the line numbers area will be derived from the backcolor of this area by darkening. If your backcolor is black the border will be black as well.
