iData 2.1.2

iData 2.1.2 has been released. iData 2 is a “freeform database application with optional fields”. Basically, if you have a lot of misc. information to store, you might want to take a look at it. It requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and sells for $69.95. You can download it here and use it as a demo for 30 days of use (actual use, not 30 days from the time you first use it).


Fixed bugs where:

    1. After hiding the toolbar and quitting, on opening iData 2 again, the toolbar would be visible again.
    2. In all Page Setup dialogs, the second landscape setting (the one with the head to the left) was not being retained. This was especially critical for envelopes being printed on printers where the envelopes feed edge-first.
    3. Text alignment wasn’t being retained in newly created field objects in template.
    4. Address blocks and fields could not have changes made when returning to the Edit Design sheet in a single session.


    1. Changed the wording and operation of the dialog that lets the user specify the location of the iData folder. When not selecting the default location, the user now selects the desired iData folder itself, instead of the folder that contains the iData folder–and the wording of the dialog has been improved to reflect this.
    2. On closing the Edit Page window, we now just resize the template window, instead of zooming.
