Fact Sheet Fusion v2

Version History

Version 2.0.5.180

New Features and Enhancements

  • Added a new Entity Properties Report – This new report allows you to quickly review entity properties such as ‘Review’, ‘Excluded’, Crosslinking exclusions.
  • Added a new Entity Topics Report – This new report allows you to quickly assess which topics have text for each of the entities. It also indicates if the entity has alternative names associated with it.
  • Added a new Glossary Terms Report – The Terms Report will report on all the terms for the selected Glossary Set. The report will cover the term properties such as ‘Review’, ‘Exclude’ and ‘Alias Of’ etc. It will also give a media attachment count for each term.
  • Content importer – will now check and add, if needed, wrapping P tags around matched content when importing data into the project.
  • Glossary Aliases – Glossary terms marked as an alias of another term can now be excluded from the Glossary term listing by leaving the term definition empty. Otherwise if you wish the alias term to be included you can simply add definition text. ‘See XXXX term for more information’.
  • Updated the help.

Fixes

  • Fixed a small bug in the Content Importer Rule loader where the topic name label matching was case sensitive.
  • Fixed several crosslinker issues.
  • Fixed the Glossary properties width layout splitter which was disabled under certain circumstances.
  • Updated the Fancy Green Template to support glossary term pop-up option and other minor CSS fixes.

Version 2.0.5.165

New features and enhancements

  • Added a new Entity Report – The new report checks for name difference (changes) between entities and the scientific name topic.
  • Updated registration and activation service.
  • Additional checks now occur prior to the fact sheet export to ensure the destination paths still exist. If not, the user is warned.
  • Added additional rules to the Clean HTML option to clean out empty p and div tags.
  • Content Importer improved by adding an option to save the Word Document as a ‘super’ clean HTML file. This file is the equivalent of what the rule parser uses during import. This will allow  easier creation of import rules when dealing with MS Word content.
  • Moved the Help to the on-line edition.

Fixes

  • Fixed token parser for media list export. It was missing topic based tokens.
  • Fixed Media Manager paste detection after a copy takes place in Explorer.
  • Fixed a bug in the cross-linker where multiple references to the same name are found. The cross-linker was placing the multi-link URLs in the wrong position of the matched name. Improved the multi-link anchor title and alt properties to show the name of the fact sheet being linked to.

Version 2.0.5.155

New features and enhancements

  • Improved the Content Import dialog – test functions are now based on row selection, rather than each row containing their own set of test buttons. This greatly reduces memory requirements when performing an import across a large number of entities.
  • Added a default ‘Description’ option in the Entity tab of the fact sheets Export dialog. This value will be used if a description isn’t provided on a per entity basis (via Entity Properties). The description field is used to create the description meta tag of the page.
  • Added a new Topic replacement token for the Author, Author Notes, and Description fields.      Token format: [Topic:<topic name>]

    The topic text used in the token replacement is the plain text version of the HTML topic content. The Topic replacement token can be used in conjunction with other standard replacement tokens. For example, to create a description of the page we could do the following, assuming we had a common name topic.

    [EntityName] ([Topic:Common name]) fact sheet.

    This could produce:

    Musca domestica (housefly) fact sheet

  • Added a new option for the [EntityName] token. If you are dealing with Scientific names for your entity list you can now use the replacement token [EntityName:scientific]. Fact Sheet Fusion will apply automatic scientific name formatting to the entity name label when the token is replaced. E.g. Take the following Entity name ‘Eucalyptus amplifolia subsp. sessiliflora’ the regular token [EntityName] would simply replace with ‘Eucalyptus amplifolia subsp. sessiliflora’ while [EntityName:scientific] would replace with ‘Eucalyptus amplifolia subsp. sessiliflora
  • Added a new entity sort order option for the index page creation. If you are dealing with scientific names as entities and are creating fact sheets for a few or single genera, the index A…Z shortcuts can become superfluous. For example, if you were creating fact sheets for Eucalypts, which have over 800 species all starting with ‘Eucalyptus’. This means only the ‘E’ in the A…Z shortcut menu becomes available leaving the user to scroll through hundreds of species to find what’s of interest. This new option will allow you to sort the Index based on the second text element of the entity name. This will allow for a greater spread of names within the Index A…Z shortcut menu.
  • A new Glossary cross-linking limiter option now allows you to limit the number of times a glossary term is cross-linked within a fact sheet.
  • Enhanced the Entity Filter option. The filter now also searches across alternative names associated with entities.
  • Added a text zoom option to the Code view of the HTML editor. Use Ctrl + + to increase the font size, or Ctrl + – to decrease the font size.
  • Updated the help.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where some entity properties weren’t saving.
  • Fixed a cross-linking issue for glossary terms containing non-alphanumeric characters in certain circumstances.
  • Fixed adding new entities that weren’t positioning correctly in the list (i.e. directly below the currently selected entity), depending on the patch level of the underlying .NET framework.
  • Single fact sheet export option now regenerates the JavaScript Entity array, if selected for export in the main Export Advanced tab.
  • Fixed a paste bug in the Code view of the Glossary HTML editor. Paste was being overridden by the paste glossary terms option.
  • Fix a Subset filter bug for the Entities List.

Version 2.0.5.150

New features and enhancements

  • Added keyboard shortcut to Entity List (Ctrl + Right Arrow). This opens the Alternative name dialog for the selected entity.
  • Alternative Name Dialog
    • Tweaked the Alternative name dialog for improved data entry speed and keyboard actions – now sets focus to the new record row and allows for immediate data entry.
    • Changed the Save button on the Alternative name dialog to a ‘Save & Close’ button. Note the dialog won’t exit if issues with saving are detected.
    • Added shortcut option (Ctrl + s) for saving current row.
    • Added shortcut option (Ctrl + Shift + x) for closing and saving the dialog.
    • Added autocomplete dropdown to the alternative name and author fields. The suggestion list is derived from the entities, and existing alternative names and author fields. This should help speed up data entry.
  • Added a formatted ‘parent’ entity label to child entities (I.e. Has a parent entity. E.g. Alternative names). This allows the alternative name to output (formatted or plain) with the parent (formatted or plain).
  • Scientific Name Formatter
    • No longer formats labels with first word in uppercase.
    • Recognises bracketed content in the middle of scientific name. “Hydrophis (Hydrophis) elegans” now formats to “Hydrophis (Hydrophis) elegans”.
  • Added photographer field to the Media List XML output.
  • Updated the help.

Fixes

  • Fix export bug where images haven’t been exported due to the skip media option being selected.
  • Fixed a bug where viewing a media item launched outside the scope of the Media Manager (E.g. Directly via an entity or topic) the associated media list wasn’t passed to the Image Viewer to power the next and previous buttons correctly.
  • Fixed minor label issue associated with the attach button in the Media Manager when called from different components. It now correctly labels the attachment type, rather than using the generic label ‘Attach to Entity’, which was confusing. E.g. If attaching a media item to a glossary term the attach button now states ‘Attach to glossary term’.

New features and enhancements

  • Added new option to change over a media file via the properties grid in the main interface or media manager.
