1.0 Release Candidate 1 available for download
We are pleased to announce the first release candidate for Adapt It Mobile 1.0.
This release contains two new features:
- Clipboard text snippet import / export support (#301). If there is text on the mobile device’s clipboard / pasteboard, the Import Document screen will have an option to import that text as a new text document. When finished adapting, the user can send the text back to the clipboard using the Export Document screen.
- Scripture portion import support (#246). This allows the user to import several portions of the same book without giving a “duplicate book” error.
The following issues are also fixed in this release:
- Added missing SFM default filter markers (#323)
- Fixed a condition where selecting a pile inside the target area was causing an exception (#324)
- Fixed an issue where the first strip of plain-text in a book was not in a containing block, causing issues for navigating and selecting text (#332)
- Updated the localizations for our supported UI languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese, Tok Pisin (#267)
- Added an Android / Google Play Store beta entry (#337)
These issues can be found in our issue tracker.
Release 1.0 beta 12 available for download
We are pleased to announce the latest public beta for Adapt It Mobile 1.0.
This beta release fixes several issues found during testing, focusing on RTL text rendering / editing:
- Add embedded font for code points that are common in RTL languages - Scheherazade (#309). Adapt It Mobile now comes with 4 embedded fonts, that can be used in addition to the fonts installed on your mobile device:
- Fixed several layout issues with RTL text (#320, #259)
- Fixed an issue where the “Wrap at Standard Format Markers” was not working in Android (#318). Also added several markers to the list of markers that cause a newline.
- Fixed an issue where the Android system setting (Display > Font size) was causing rendering display issues in Adapt It Mobile (#314). Now this system setting is ignored; Adapt It Mobile does have its own font size setting under Settings > Source Font / Target Font / Navigation Font
- Fixed an issue where uppercase file extensions (.SFM, .USFM, .XML) were being parsed as text files (#310).
These issues can be found in our issue tracker.
Release 1.0 beta 11 available for download
We are pleased to announce the eleventh public beta for Adapt It Mobile 1.0.
Bug Fixes This beta release fixes several issues found during testing:
- Fixed an issue where removing a phrase didn’t preserve the associated marker information (#291)
- Fixed an issue where the possible translations on the “choose translation” menu were hard to distinguish, because the items were spaced evenly with no line between the options (#292)
- Fixed an issue where KB entries with trailing space + punctuation were not removed (#293)
- Fixed an issue where extra punctuation was added when clicking back on the target field (#294)
- Fixed an issue where the double-tap phrase selection was off by one word (#297)
- Fixed an issue where selecting from the drop-down “choose translation” menu was causing the cursor to skip one or more lines. (#299)
- Added two editor options that were in Adapt It desktop, but not in Adapt It Mobile: wrapping at standard format markers (#302) and automatic copying of text from source to target when there is nothing in the KB (#300)
New Features Also included in this release are the following enhancements:
- The version / build info is displayed in the Settings / General Settings page (along with the two editor options listed above and the UI locale setting that was displayed on the main menu page) (issue #298)
- Portuguese localization (#304)
- A new way to select phrases in the adaptation editor: long press selection mode (issue #212). This feature works as follows:
- The user presses / holds the starting pile in the selection. After 1 second, the color on the selection changes and the user gets an audible “ping” telling them that it’s in long-press selection mode. The user can then lift their finger from the starting pile location.
- The user clicks on the ending pile in the selection. There’s no time limit, as it’s still in the long press selection mode. All the words between the two piles become part of the selection.
Some other nuances of this feature:
- If the user clicks outside the strip, all the words up to the beginning / ending of the strip (depending on where the user clicked) become part of the selection.
- If the user clicks an empty area, the long-press selection goes away.
- If the user presses / holds the same pile, the long-press selection mode toggles off, and the starting pile is the only one selected.
Here’s an animated .gif of this selection process in action:
With this change, there are now three ways to select a phrase in Adapt It Mobile:
- Click/drag the words that will form the phrase.
- Double-tap a pile to select the whole strip.
- The “long press selection” method outlined above.
