Features

  • PDFs can now be generated directly from the print preview, using the new "PDF" button
  • Before an evaluation, the EstateVal, GiftVal, and CostBasis now estimate the price of the evaluation, and give the user the chance to continue or cancel
  • Warning and error dialog boxes are now colored yellow and red respectively, to draw more attention to them
  • EstateVal now allows a currency to be set on user-defined prices and will make the appropriate conversion in the calculations
  • Help → EstateVal on the Web... now attempts to open the default Web browser and only falls back to Microsoft Edge if it can't
  • The "Contact Us" dialog now has a "Send E-Mail" button that opens up an e-mail pre-populated with information about the account and user

  • The Passthrough field on the main screen can have its label changed with a preference setting

Fixes

  • Account Information Keys can now be pasted into their field even if the full field is not selected
  • A status-line description for the Contact Us menu item was added
