Creation Workshop version 1.5 beta 2
- The 1.5 beta 2 version of the Creation Workshop/Creator software is
available for testing at the following website:
Download only those updaters for the products you've purchased (unless the
product is installed, the updater won't work). Unzip the updater (for the
unzip password use the last word in the Creation Workshop manual, or for
HERO Creator, use the last word of the first sentence in the second
paragraph on page 23) and run the updater application in the ZIP file.
It is recommended that you install the beta version in a different
directory after the updater has found the original, to preserve your
current installation. Remember that editing an existing character sheet
will make it unusable with the previous version of the application, so you
may wish to make copies of any character sheets you edit. To point back to
the original data files, use the Utilities | Preferences... dialog to set
the Source Directory to the original installation directory.

This version contains the following new major features (see the release
notes in the update for more details):
* Allow multiple selections in options list when editing items (very useful
for copying multiple Advantages and Limitations).
* You can load character sheets as data by storing them in the Creation
Workshop source directory and loading them with File | Load Data Sheet...
Makes creating Package Deals much easier.
* Added picture references to print templates that allow "computed"
references to bitmaps, references to text values defined in dialogs, and an
absolute file name. This lets different graphics be displayed on the
character sheet depending on values in the character sheet, as well as
user-changeable character sheet graphics.
* Several fixes and enhancements to Hero Creator, including an easier way
to customize the logo graphic printed on the character sheet (no longer
requires Creation Workshop to replace that particular logo).
Plus dozens of other features and bug fixes.
Thanks for your help!
