Dear Pronto community,

We would like to inform you that we have released two new editors for
the Pronto NG and ProntoPro NG.

ProntoEdit NG 3.0.8 [Link:]

You have all been waiting a long time and finally its here. This is the
editor based on the the ProntoPro NG editor, which went through
extensive testing by users here in the community and offers the
following features and to quote a tester is rock solid.

Improved way of working
- Due to the addition of a number of shortcut keys and enabling cursor keys also in the
property pages, you can now do nearly everything using the keyboard. Check the online help for a list of shortcut keys.
- Right-click menus have been added and extended to give you access to all needed functions immediately.
- Making links is now a piece of cake using the graphical linking feature. Just select the button you want to link to, drag it while keeping + pressed and drop it on your target button.
- Dragging buttons with special functions like copy images or copy actions will now highlight the target and will show you what action you are doing. When you copy images, also the font size, color and position is copied along. Rearrange the pages in the tree view by simply dragging your page to a new location.
- Create your layout easily by using the align buttons functions.
- You can now save an image from the configuration file to you disk.
- The IR duration can now be programmed (also when used in a macro)

Additional changes
- The Add IR window is reduced in size and made more efficient.
- The width of the action list has been increased, so long link names are better readable.
- With select, you can select multiple images for quick insert from your disk into the gallery.
- When you select a CCF, PCF file or images, the editor will remember the last selected directory on your PC.
- After up & downloading the editor now gives an acoustic signal.
- You can now drag images (e.g. backgrounds) from the gallery into the pages just like you could already do with buttons.

Removed from the editor
The Standard/Advanced mode has been removed as most files required Advanced mode anyway.
The Open file dialog at start up has been removed saving you time to directly select your files.

Improved performance of the editor
Files open now up till 30 times faster.
The gallery, once opened initially will pop up immediately.

Improved way of selecting items
Different mechanisms to select items are implemented. The most important addition is:
- will shift focus from the tree view to the page view.
- allows you to select the next object within the property pages. This is easy for e.g. fast labeling of you buttons.
- allows you to select multiple items within a bounding rectangle.
- allows you to add or remove items to/from a selection.

Finishing touches
Direct entering of Philips IR protocols in the IR dialog (RC5/6/RCMM).
The Status Bar indicates the selected item and position.
