Sorry it took so long, but I decided to wait until I’d implemented everything I wanted before releasing. It’s easily the biggest change since I started this on Sourceforge, with about 25% extra code.
I think I’ve properly tested everything, but please report any bugs here or through the sourceforge link at the top. Also let me know if you think of any other features that could be added.
Inverted text brightness and contrast when using white text on black background mode
Current entered width or height now kept when loading a new image
Fixed problem with output binary images having an extra space
Added right-click ‘Flip Horizontally’ and ‘Flip Vertically’ to the text image
Going away for a week, so I’m putting this out now.
Added button to switch from black text on a white background, to white text on a black background.
Now able to change ramp/auto settings when no image is loaded
Improved speed of auto ramp generation
Added “Import from Clipboard” menu option
Plus more FxCop compliance and some code reorganisation
Added right-click context menu to the Auto button:
| – Copy the generated ramp to the clipboard
| – Set the characters used to create the ramp
Fixed problem with DrawText when string starts with ‘&’
Fixed problem with saving as image being wrong on certain fonts
Added ability to automatically generate ramps for the current font
Moved fullscreen button on to a real checkbox button
You won’t see a lot of difference for the default font (Lucidia Console 9pt) because I’d created the default ramp specifically for it, but some of the other fonts show a real improvement with the new ramp creator turned on.
Source code will be uploaded when the cvs server starts working again.
Automatic generation of ASCII ramps for the current font is in the CVS and working quite well. I need to try and optimize it a little more, but I don’t know if I can without using unsafe code (which I’m avoiding).
New version will either be 0.2.10 or 0.3.0, I’m not sure yet.
Fixed problem with previous image being shown if ramp changed on invalid size
Added ability to change tabs with Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-2
Added ability to switch to a fullscreen view via F11 or the menu
Added check to prevent saving on an empty ramp
Added right click menu option to show or hide the selected area fill
Added toolbar button to switch to and from fullscreen
Also, I added some links at the top of this page.
