Version 5.03.6038 [2016.07.13]
  • Bug fix
Version 5.03.6034 [2016.07.09]
  • Bug fix
Version 5.03 [2016.06.19]
  • The item description is now a multiline textbox (use ALT + 09 to insert a TAB character)

  • SPS Manager: the search tool finds now every single word and not the exact phrase only
  • Bug fix
  • SPS Builder: script after install
Version 5.02 [2016.04.19]
  • The search bar has evolved: now it is able to search inside the items description too. With the search inside the description mode, you can specify more than one word or portion of word and every chunk will be search in AND

  • On a command argument if the argument path start with ^. (escape dot) it won't be resolved.
    For example
    ^.\ becomes .\
    ^^.\ becomes ^.\
    Resolution of relative path meets these priorities:
    1) SyMenu resolves . relatively to its same folder
    2) If you escape the . (^.) and a Working folder is available SyMenu doesn't resolve . because it represents the Working folder
    3) If you escape the . (^.) and no Working folder is available SyMenu doesn't resolves . because it represents the executable file path
