Version 3.15 - Released 09/19/2015
I - Reduced possibility of receiving "Program Not Responding" messages while deleting large amounts of duplicates in the Duplicates Summary Window.
I - Improved registration window by removing license key segment fields and allowing user to simply copy / paste the license key into the field.
I - Improved activation and settings stability by removing reliance on the Windows Registry. Configuration is now based on local files.
I - Added preferred-format processing support for the ART60 and ART50 formats.
I - Changed default locations of Log, Archive, Duplicate, and Quarantine folders to be sub-folders of the "My Documents" folder, enabling easier accessibility to them. The Embroidery Deduper will now create a "My Embroidery Deduper" sub-folder under the "My Documents" folder, which will store Deduper settings. This folder is required for proper operation of the software. If existing folders locations are under a "system" folder, they will also be changed to the new location.
N - Enhanced "Duplicate File Handling" mode by adding a new option to check for duplicates of non-embroidery files when no embroidery files exist in the same folder. This enables more thorough duplicate detection, as it will check for duplicates of color charts, PDFs, photos, etc., when the folder is otherwise empty. In some cases, the extra files can't be deduped in the first scan. They will be found in subsequent scans of the folder, however.
N - Added support for PDF report format, in addition to the existing HTML format. This will enable easier viewing of reports for some customers.
