I sent you a PM. Thanks your your time in testing the newest additions.
Once samcat has reported back on any issues (or lack thereof) I'll post a public build.
Other than bug fixes and some minor performance improvements, notable additions will include:
- Configurable printing layouts: Several are included for common ticket stock sizes. But you can also make your own, or copy and modify and existing layout.
- Improved ticket editor: Among other things, the editor now includes an optional grid overlay, with the option to 'snap' ticket elements to the grid and / or other elements when moving and resizing. This makes creating and editing ticket designs MUCH easier.
- Option to represent a text value as a linear code128 barcode (in addition to the existing QR codes) which are scanable by most off the shelf barcode scanners and smartphone apps.
- .ticx files can now be associated with TicketMaker, so you can just double click an existing ticket file and it will open right up in TicketMaker.
I have included a registration system with this version. I do enjoy writing programs like this, but it isn't free for me to do, so like my MoviePoster application, I plan to support development through user's donations. The program can still be used completely free, tickets just have a watermark when they are printed from an unregistered installation.
If anyone has any last minute feature requests or ticket design ideas, now is the time to let me know in order for them to be considered for this build.
