Release Notes v1.8
There is an existing bug in Casedo related to using the Deleting Single Documents feature (See bug under version 1.6.0 below). Occasionally when deleting a single page in this way, bookmarks above the deleted page move down causing the bookmarks to be in the wrong order. If you use this feature we highly recommend making a back up copy of the Casefile first. If you want to delete a single page, the alternative is to use the Split and Merge features. You should always have back ups in place!

ISSUE: There were five colour options to use within Casedo. SOLUTION: There are now up to seven colours. Colour tagging and highlighting colours now match
NEW Set Pagination Start Page
ISSUE: The first numbered page in Casedo was fixed at ‘1’. SOLUTION: You can now set the pagination to start from whichever number you like.
NEW Improved welcome screen
ISSUE: Some users found Casedo welcome screen unclear. SOLUTION: The welcome screen for the new licenses is now updated and much improved and clearer.
BUG When offline Casefile does not load when Casedo is started
ISSUE: When the computer upon which Casedo is installed is offline and Casedo is first opened, Casedo starts but the Casefile fails to open. SOLUTION: Make sure Casedo is running before the computer goes offline. For example, if intending to use Casedo on a laptop when travelling, make sure that Casedo is up and running before leaving to travel. The laptop can then be set to sleep mode and Casedo will open offline the next time the computer is woken up.

This feature is quite new and you might experience some issues such as your emails might not be properly imported.
