The change log below lists all the changes to the licensed version of SmartEdit. You should use this information to monitor any changes to the software, and to decide if you wish to install or upgrade to the most current version. To install the latest version, you should close SmartEdit if it's open, then download the trial version from the Download Page. This will overwrite your current version, and identify any license that is already installed.
SmartEdit was designed to work on plain text, regardless of whatever formatting might exist in your Word document. On occasion, this led to problems between the results lists and the word processor when the document contained non-plain text formatting, such as bullet and numbered lists. This area has been improved, but is still not perfect.
If you encounter any problems with SmartEdit failing to locate a sentence when you click on one of the results lists, please report it to us, preferably with a sample document that contains the problem.
An important release, as it allows users to train SmartEdit to ignore certain results, making the output of each successive SmartEdit check more relevant to the individual writer's needs. The more time you invest in excluding results that are not applicable to you, the better SmartEdit becomes at identifying real problems with your writing.
This is an important release, as it removes the need for users to edit their work within SmartEdit. Many writers prefer to use their own word processor for editing. The new reports make this possible, as the results of SmartEdit's checks can be output, then referenced later when editing in Word, Scrivener, or any other word processor. Full details of the report and printing options in the help section.
