Casedo v1.10 Release Announcement

NEW Split document by bookmarks – Read More
ISSUE: You received a single large PDF bundle which, when imported into Casedo, is a single document with bookmarks that needs to be broken up manually.
SOLUTION: In Casedo, right click on the document in the Index or Desk Space and select Split document by bookmarks and Casedo will break up the document by 1st tier bookmarks, all bookmarks below that will be promoted to the next tier.

NEW Image file import
ISSUE: When wanting to import images, they needed to be added to a PDF or Word document before they could be imported into Casedo.
SOLUTION: Both .png and .jpg (.jpeg on Mac) image types can be imported directly into Casedo. For this feature, see the KNOWN ISSUE below.

NEW Text file import
ISSUE: When wanting to import text documents other than Word documents or PDFs, files needed to be converted to one of those two file types before being imported into Casedo.
SOLUTION: Both .txt and .rtf text document types can be imported directly into Casedo. More information on RTF imports HERE. For this feature, see the KNOWN ISSUE below.

NEW CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) keyboard shortcut moved to CTRL+SHIFT+Z (Mac Cmd+SHIFT+Z)
ISSUE: CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) is a standard keyboard shortcut for Undo, ie. undoing the last action in a piece of software. In Casedo it was assigned to Undo Last Move, this was found to be confusing by some users.
SOLUTION: The shortcut assigned to Undo Last Move has been reassigned to CTRL+SHIFT+Z (Mac Cmd+SHIFT+Z) – Read More

NEW The Print option has been removed
ISSUE: The Print feature differed little from the Export Case to PDF option, some users were confused. Additionally, the Print option did not print individually rotated pages correctly.
SOLUTION: Remove the Print option. Users now use the Export Case to PDF to print a Casedo casefile – Read More

NEW View menu item added
ISSUE: Some users prefer to use keyboard shortcuts or menus instead of using the buttons in the application. Some Windows user didn’t want to see the menu at all.
SOLUTION: A new top menu item, View, has been added. Alongside options for Zoom and Search, Windows users also have the option to hide the menu completely.

FIX When undoing movements in the Index and Desk Space, a previously deleted file is undeleted but is no longer accessible
ISSUE: When using CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) and a previously deleted file is undeleted, the undeleted file reappears in the Index or Desk Space, but can no longer be accessed.
SOLUTION: The CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) keyboard shortcut (now CTRL+SHIFT+Z (Mac Cmd+SHIFT+Z)) no longer restores a file that has been deleted.

FIX Casedo .case extension not registering with the Windows Operating System (Windows only)
ISSUE: On some Windows installations the Casedo .case file extension is not registering with the Windows Operating System such that Casedo casefiles cannot be opened from the outside of Casedo itself.
SOLUTION: This has been fixed.

FIX Bulk importing password protected documents not working as expected
ISSUE: Bulk importing password protected documents is causing Casedo to the throw “Password was either incorrect or could not be decrypted by Casedo”, even if the passwords used are correct, resulting in the user being unable to import the documents into Casedo.
SOLUTION: This has been fixed.

FIX When a single page is deleted, highlights above move to a different position
ISSUE: Highlights above a page that is deleted sometimes move to a different position.
SOLUTION: This has been fixed.

KNOWN ISSUE Rich Text Format documents don’t import as expected – Read More
ISSUE: When imported into Casedo, Rich Text Format documents look quite different to how they looked before import.
SOLUTION: Rich Text Format documents are not rendered in a consistent fashion, this is an issue we are working on (our developer said “RTFs are written in an interesting way in that the parser has to read the file as actions to take and store those in memory. Also, the library we are using seems to be the most feature-rich but still missing certain styling”).

KNOWN ISSUE On importing emails unwanted images are imported 
ISSUE: When imported into Casedo, emails now import all attached images (usually product and brand logos etc.)
SOLUTION: This is an unfortunate outcome of being able to import images into Casedo. Currently there is no solution. The image files need to be deleted manually inside Casedo.

BUG Pagination On/Off Menu Toggle not working on Windows
ISSUE: In Windows (NOT Mac) the Pagination On/Off option on the Edit menu has no effect when selected.
SOLUTION: Whilst this option isn’t working, the feature it’s is. To switch the pagination off or on use either the button on the bottom left of the application or the keyboard shortcut CTRL+K – Read More

SOLUTION: You can now undo Index & Desk Space movements using CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd +Z).

NEW Casedo Casefile lock to prevent opening of a Casefile by more than one user at a time, when saved on shared storage – Read More
ISSUE: When two or more people attempt to open the same Casedo Casefile on a shared LAN network, Casedo creates multiple copies of the file.
SOLUTION: Casedo will now prevent this happening and inform subsequent users of who currently has the Casefile open.

FIX Issue with moving annotations when individual pages were deleted or rotated
ISSUE: When a page is deleted or rotated, the annotations would move to an unwanted location.

BUG When undoing movements in the Index and Desk Space, the Casefile Crashes or documents can’t be viewed[FIXED in v1.10]
ISSUE: Rarely when using CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) the Casefile crashes or documents can’t be viewed, leading to a loss of work.
SOLUTION: This occasionally happens when Casedo can find no more undo steps to take when the user presses the undo keys. To prevent this, count the undo steps you need to make before pressing the undo keys, and always make sure you have a back up.

BUG When undoing movements in the Index and Desk Space, a previously deleted file is undeleted but is no longer accessible [FIXED in v1.10]
ISSUE: When using CTRL+Z (Mac Cmd+Z) and a previously deleted file is undeleted, the undeleted file reappears in the Index or Desk Space, but can no longer be accessed.
SOLUTION: We are working on a fix for this issue. In the meantime the deleted file cannot be retrieved and the Index entry of the ‘ghost’ file needs to be deleted.

BUG When a second user accesses a shared Casedo Casefile that is already open, the Casefile Lock feature does not work as expected
ISSUE: When this happens Casedo will either crash, but is more likely to save a duplicate version of the file.
SOLUTION: Whilst this feature has been tested to work on Local Areas Networks, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive, it is dependent on the way the shared drive systems themselves are set up, as well as local internet speeds. See the note at the bottom of the article HERE for more information.

BUG Unable to export to PDF
ISSUE: Rarely, some Windows users have found they cannot export any Casedo casefile to PDF
SOLUTION: Whilst PDF export works for almost every user, for those that it doesn’t the solution is to export an individual file or folder first (see how to do this HERE) and then export to PDF.

BUG When offline Casefile does not load when Casedo is started [FIXED in v1.9]
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.

BUG Extra printing marks appear to the right of the Table of Contents (Windows only)
ISSUE: Very rarely when printing an exported Casefile with a Table of Contents, extra marks appear to the left of the Table of Contents.
SOLUTION: This issue ONLY occurs when printing from an exported PDF in Windows using Adobe Acrobat. To avoid this either use a Mac or another PDF reader in Windows (such as Fox It, or printing directly from a browser such as Google Chrome).
