Thank you for downloading Flashcard Wizard 1.0
A free product brought to you by The Fool's Workshop
AS OF 1.2 FLASHCARD WIZARD IS FREEWARE. Optional registration can be made to donate to an educational charity, but no payment is required for unlimited use of the program. A complete redesign of the program is underway and will be released as 2.0 upon completion under the GPL Open Source license. No date is set for release.
What's New in 1.2
Summary: The 1.2 update fixes a few bugs in the 1.0 release and adds a few minor features. These include the ability to edit entries while conducting interval study, ability to tab out of the comment field, and a few new export options, most notable export to a format which can be recognized by a number of PalmOS flashcard programs. These are still text files though, and must be converted to a ".pdb" Palm file before they can be used with PalmOS applications.
€ Added: When pressing tab in the comment field of the "Add Entry" window, the previous comments will not cycle through but rather you will be moved to the next field.
€ Added: New Export features for Palm flashcard programs have been added. However, after export, these files must still be converted to ".pdb" files before they can be used on the palm.
€ Added: You may now export to the Vocab flashcard file format.
€ Fixed: The version number is now saved correctly in FcW files.
€ Fixed: FcW files may now be opened directly from the finder without the "AppleEvent" error in the 1.0 version.
€ Fixed: Popup menus in the printing window now work properly. An error, never reported, was found
€ Added: In response to several requests, and my own annoyance at the lack of this feature, you may now edit entries while you conduct interval study on them. The changes will not be fully saved until after you finish interval study, and will affect only those files which are in the user file folder.
