I hate early beta releases… updates come far too quickly and this beta is no different than the first SharpMT beta. And so, here is Beta 2 of Pocket SharpMT 1.2! Couple of bug fixes that corrected some of the font types/sizes and a couple of small new features. Download version 1.2 Beta 2 here – the FAQ has also been updated for this release…
Auto-show SIP – by request, I added a new check box on the Options dialog for SIP control. If this option is turned on, the “Soft Input Panel” (SIP) is shown whenever you tap on a control that allows text input and it’s hidden when you tap on another control. If this option is turned off, the SIP will not show on its own. This option is turned on by default.
Tool bar – by request, I added a couple of tool bar buttons for Save Draft and Options. I don’t like the way the Save button looks when it’s disabled, but I’m going to do some digging (well, I’m going to ask Steve who suggested the tool bar) and see what he says about it.
As little as possible! I know this might sound weird, but I want to get 1.2 up and running first. There are a couple of things for Pocket SharpMT that I will probably add because they would be very helpful to that device, and that’ll be it for now. After Pocket SharpMT goes “live” I plan to start adding some enhancements to both SharpMT and Pocket SharpMT – the most requested thing I’ve seen has been for the Date Posted field that MT exposes to drafts.
Here’s an updated set of the screenshots:
