    Look like I don't understand what you mean properly... Can you provide some more detailed screenshots? For example screenshot after the first backspace and after second etc?

    Hello!

    For a long time, we did not have new versions, so it's time to get ready! :)

    Unfortunately, version 0.7.2 beta 9 did not include everything that I wanted, for example, double dialogues did not distribute into update... The reason is that this is a rather complicated functional, on which I honestly say, was buried. Realizing that for more than two weeks I have been doing this and I'm not even in the middle of the road, I decided that we need to review the plan and adjust the route. In any case, this functionality will be in the program, not in this, either in one of the future versions.

    From the new it turns out that we have only one major addition - it is possible to create versions of the script and compare them.



    It works as follows - when you start the project, the program thinks that you started the first version of the script. When you have finished it, in the menu you will find the item "Start new version", by clicking which, you can specify the color of the new version (in the future we plan to make automatic revisions of all versions based on these colors) and set its name. That's all. Now you are already working on the next version. Then, again and again, you can create as many versions as you need.

    After you have accumulated several versions and you want to compare them, you can follow to the tools module, select a tool with the appropriate name and compare the desired versions of the script. In this case, new pieces of text will be highlighted in green, deleted in red, and for the changed pieces, two blocks will be displayed one with the old text, and the second with the new one.

    Plus, the way to fill out the cards has been changed. Now in edit mode for each card, you can see both its title and the heading of the scene.

    Plus, we have some bug fixes:
    - fixed the problem with the freezing of the program, when the block highlighting tuned on;
    - fixed the problem with adding cards without a title, but with a description;
    - fixed the problem with updating the card description, which in some cases was not deleted;
    - fixed the problem with resetting the currently active cell in the mental map editor;
    - improved the work of spelling dictionaries;
    - changed behavior of the appearance of a side panel with formats in the Zen mode - now it appears, when you move the cursor to the edge of the screen;
    - fixed the problem with keeping transparent background for png-images in the gallery;
    - when creating a project in a non-existent folder, the program will try to create it automatically;
    - when exporting to FDX format, the title page is now also saved;
    - fixed the problem with running the program in newer versions of Linux distributions;
    - translations of the program into Italian and Azerbaijani languages were added;
    - minor improvements to the interface (update information is removed from the program menu, some panels are re-arranged).

    Such things guys. I hope future versions will not force themselves to wait so long! ;)

    Hello.

    And we have an update! Today, finally, we will move the latest beta version to the release candidate status!

    In the current version, we made several improvements over the previous beta:
    - improved program performance when working with script text;
    - fixed problem with drawing the cursor (for Hebrew and Farsi fixed problem with positioning the cursor in the empty line);
    - fixed problem with slowing down the typewriter sounds;
    - fixed a problem with importing a DOCX document, when character dialogues were defined as actions;
    - improved export of documents to PDF and DOCX;
    - improved import and export in the fountain format.

    If you have not been updated for a long time and have not followed the development of the program, then you can take a look at what was added to it on the way from version 0.7.1 to version 0.7.2:

    Beta 1 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2017-11-10.html
    Beta 2 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2017-11-12.html
    Beta 3 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-07.html
    Beta 4 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-08.html
    Beta 5 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-01-23.html
    Beta 6 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-03-14.html
    Beta 7 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-05-15.html
    Beta 8 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-06-19.html
    Beta 9 - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-09-17.html
    Beta 9A - https://kitscenarist.ru/en/history/2018-09-30.html

    All further improvements in the current version will include only improvements in performance and fixing of detected errors. All new features will be added in the next version 0.8.0.

    In fact, it’s getting harder for me to support the project every day, so now I’m thinking about how it could be done so that on the one hand the project could develop and on the other hand I wouldn’t have to be torn between my main job, my family and KIT. Perhaps you have ideas or suggestions on how to do this - welcome to discussions or private messaging!

    Hi everybody!

    And here is the first patch of KIT Scenarist 0.7.2 rc2, correcting the work of the previous release.

    And in it:
    - fixed problem with displaying the cursor in the documents of the research module
    - fixed problem with undoing last action
    - improved saving of review marks in the script editor
    - fixed problem with disappearing review marks
    - fixed problems with project synchronization in some cases

    And the program has updated Courier Prime font. We have added to it the full support of the Azerbaijani language as well!

    Further, according to the plan, we will have several updates of the mobile version. It is necessary to deliver there all the current developments and optimization, add the ability to work with versions of the script, and it's time to embed cards in it;)

    Have a nice day!

    I am not from their Team, but i can you give some suggestions, Peter:
    Normaly look at the Download-Page, than klick on Stable.
    Download free screenwriting software KIT Scenarist
    The actualy newest Version is "0.7.2 rc2a" (Desktop) and 1.3.5 (Mobile)

    I know Your Linux-Ubuntu Version, the Download-package is the "DEB 64Bit" one.

    But if there are some Problems - older Versions to downgrade (Worstcase Scenario) can be found here:
    Index of /downloads

    I know, the last stable "0.7.1 rca11" work fine on most machines, that have trouble with the newer Versions. But i think, @dimkanovikov can give you more specific answers.

    @dimkanovikov
    I have a litle question myself about the spellchecking. On Your Downloadserver I found the hunspell dictionaries. I know, Red Hat/Fedora, MacOS, Firefox, OpenOffice works directly with this (on the listet OSes integrated into the OS). Can KIT use it itself or grab it for use from some knowing Installations (a Workaround for Linux Mint Users exist also for that, but its not realy Part of Mint itself like MacOS, Red Hat/Fedora)? What about it for Systems without Hunspell (equal, if someone uses Windows, MacOS or Linux)?

    Hello @PeBu34,

    Basically, we have one stable and one beta and every new version replace previously published. Currently, I suggest you go to our site and download the stable version for your operating system (Get the latest most stable version of the program).

    Hello @Lupin Wolf,

    When we designed the app, we decide to embed in KIT our own copy of Hunspell and store dictionaries. This not a true Linux way, but in my opinion, it's more user-friendly because users don't need care about some 3rd party stuff which can be preinstalled or not in their systems. They just turn on the checkbox and choose a language to spelling and it works :)
