• A new search criterion was added that lets you limit the search to any album in the file. You can also select "...(Expression Ideas)" in the criterion menu to open a long list of expressions you can copy and paste to use for searching by an "Expression:" criterion.
• You can hold down the option key while attaching notes, a source, a multimedia object, or a research log, and it will immediately attach new notes, a new source, a new multimedia object, or a new research log. It saves the step of opening a sheet and clicking the "New" button.
• You can enter a secondary sort rule for a column to further sort records that have the same value by the primary expression (e.g., sort individuals with same name by their birthdate).
• Many "?" (or help) buttons take you directly to help on the current window. You can add such a button to each toolbar, if desired, by customizing the toolbars and that added button will open help for the current type of window.
• Two new scripts let you automatically download and install user interface formats and scripts that are available on geditcom.com
• The help is now searchable (but only if you choose to open the help in Apple's help viewer).
• User Interface Language Improvements
- Fixed some issues in the "Wiki Genealogy" format
- Scripts can be embedded in user interface formats and activated by clicking a button or control clicking a text editing field (see new ScriptLink and ScriptType options in the GEDitCOM Editor). Some scripts were add to current formats.
• Minor Fixes
- If GEDitCOM II was left running for several days, it could lose its temporary folder (MacOS would delete it) and certain features would stop working until restarting. The temporary folder is now automatically recreated if needed.
- Fixed problem where you could not type accented characters in to raw GEDCOM text field in the index window.
- Fixed a pronoun in narrative reports.
