This Release is a Beta Release - and this release is not yet compatible with AgendaMaster 1.x created agenda slides.




 01 FIX

Now a change of the level will show the correct number.

Changes in:

AMSlideTags_Edit_Slide(oCurrentSlide, "Event", "");

02 FIX

Statistic counter for Total Sub Table of content slides on the Main ToC Slide. Used for MultiEdit.

Changes in:


03 FIX

If slide titles are inherited from the AgendaPoint to the content slides, the titles are now available in the background (AMSlideTags) for every content slide. This is used for the multi edit function, to enable / disable slide titles inheritance for every content slide.

Slide titles are added to AMSlideTags even for content slides before any AgendaSlides or which don't get the title by an AgendaPoint.

Changes in:


04 FIX The CommonFunction [IsString] will now check for NULL value. This is needed to fill the DataGridViews correctly.

Changes in:


07 FIX

It is now possible to define which title (Main and/or Sub title) should be inherited to slides below an Table of Content (ToC) slide.

And titles are only taken from Main ToC slide. The fix corrects that titles were taken from Sub ToC slides which is not correct.

Changes in:


08 FIX Tabulator order im ToC general tab corrected
09 NEW Slide Titles changes are now covered when SlideSelection event is triggered. If there is no inheritance of titles the titles of the slide will resist in AMSlideTags.
10 NEW

If the titles are generally inherited from the parent AgendaPoint you can now define for every content slide manual titles which are not managed/overwritten by AgendaMaster.

11 CHG

Master change in writting and reading tags in AgendaMaster. Before every setting had it's own Tag value. To be more future compatable we changed this logic. Now we write only one tag to presentation and on each slide. The tag name is:



This allows us to easier add information / fields in the future and be compatable backwards. 

This master change is not compatable to earlier AgendaMaster versions, because there is not yet a conversion from older logic implemented.

12 NEW

New placeholder available:

  • AgendaPointNumber
  • Responsible

This allows you to add the AgendaPointNumber or Responsible person e.g. in the footer text.

13 NEW

  • You can change if the titles of content slides are inherited from the parent AgendaPoint
