New/improved

General

  • Improved setup
    In a rare situation the setup incorrectly detected Excel 2007 instead of Excel 2010 installed on a system and then only offered to install the 32-bits edition.
    This is now fixed so that you can also install the universal and faster "32+64-bits" edition for Excel 2010 and later.
  • Text » Advanced character remove or replace...
    Improved so that it works better when the Windows System Locale option
    "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" is checked. (Having this option checked changes the result of Excel's =CHAR() function for a language for characters 128-255.)
  • General, support for "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" option
    Several changes so that it works better when the Windows System Locale option
    "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" is checked.
    When this option is checked, Excel's built-in =CHAR() function gives different results for ASCII characters 128-255 for the same language.
    This option in Windows can be found in the following location:
    Window Start > type "control panel" (without the quotes) in the search box and select Control Panel in the results.
    In the Control Panel with  Clock and Region click on Change date, time and number formats
    Go to the Administrative tab and click Change system locale...
    Here is the  "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" option.
    By default this is turned off, but some users prefer to have this checked.


  • General
    A few small improvements and bug fixes.

In the universal "32+64-bits edition" for Excel 2010 and later only

  • ASAP Utilities Ribbon
    The names and descriptions of the tools were displayed but the accented characters in version 7.8 were displayed without their accent (á as a, ë as e, ñ as n etc.).
    This is now fixed.
