Worth Noting: EditTools v4 Patch Released

If you read my article regarding the release of EditTools version 4 with the new Wildcard Find & Replace macro (Macro Power: Wildcard Find & Replace) and either upgraded your EditTools, or purchased EditTools, or simply decided to give EditTools a trial run, it is important that you go to the wordsnSync downloads page and download and install the latest release, version 4.0.06.

You can tell what version of EditTools you are running by clicking About. It should read Build: 4.0.06.

Unfortunately, a couple of minor bugs and one major bug creeped into EditTools between the final beta and the release. (I’m always amazed at how bug creep works with software!) The 4.0.06 patch release fixes these bugs and adds a new feature to the Journal Manager. Now you can easily search your journal dataset.

If you are an editor and haven’t tried EditTools, you should give it a try. It is one of the tools in an editor’s armory that can increase efficiency and accuracy. I created the set of macros to help me in my editing, and I know from my own experience that these macros save a lot of valuable time.

EditTools is discussed in The 3 Stages of Copyediting: II — The Copyediting Stage. It is available at a discounted price as part of the Editor’s Toolkit Ultimate macro package, which includes PerfectIt from Intelligent Editing (see The 3 Stages of Copyediting: III — The Proofing Stage) and Editor’s Toolkit Plus from The Editorium (see The 3 Stages of Copyediting: I — The Processing Stage). More information about Editor’s Toolkit Ultimate is available at wordsnSync.
