[Announce] Amaya 10 pre-release

Irene Vatton-2

Hi,

The pre-release of Amaya 10 is now available.

Major changes are:
 o A contextual menu,
 o A complete redesign of the user interface: new toolbars, palettes, panels
 0 Four different Amaya profiles
 o Amaya themes,
 o The File menu gives now access to the list of recent open documents
 o There is now a Select All command
 o Amaya proposes new options when a table, an image or an object are created
 o A new handling of the selection within tables
 o The links view display all elements with an id attribute
 o Class attributes are now displayed in the status bar
 o A Save As option to save without template

The final release Amaya 10 should be published mid February.
The documentation is not updated today, but it will be done with the release.

As usual, your feedback is welcome,

SVG: Copy & Paste: Amaya 10 pre-release

Jonathan Chetwynd

SVG: Copy & Paste: Amaya 10 pre-release

Irène

I'm naturally excited by Amaya's unique ability as an editor, to copy  
and paste SVG.

However I'm concerned by the methodology.
eg, I copied one of the 'leaves' from the Amaya logo and pasted into  
a new document, then saved the document, the result is attached.

in a similar test I copied the chair from:
http://peepo.getmyip.com/~JonathanChetwynd/zanadu.svg
whilst the symbol link was copied successfully and the chair visible,  
it is evident that the saved file cannot be expected to be as useful.  
in it's present form....

Please could you let me know your proposal?

I do recognise this may not have the highest priority at the present  
time.

Suggestions:

1. It would be great if we could get a file explorer that worked w/ webdav.

Without a file explorer over webdav, my end-users can't figure out how
to edit individual documents stored "remotely".

2. can someone build a 64-bit .deb I can use on ubuntu? Otherwise I can
only use Amaya via windows on vmware. I tried building amaya on Ubuntu
and I couldn't get very far.


Question:

1. under preferences / webdav there is a "user's webdav resource list
(URL URL)"

I can't find this information in the online help. It makes me think that
when I insert an image, I might be able to easily browse those webdav
resources. But I couldn't get that to work.

This gets back to suggestion #1. If anyplace there was a 'browse'
button, a person could select from a recently used list of webdav urls
to navigate through, that'd make amaya much easier to use with webdav.

2. Is there anyway to get the cooperation menu or a "lock / unlock"
button back onto the toolbar? The help file shows an older version of
amaya with the cooperation menu on the toolbar.  Out of sight, out of
mind..

Thanks!

It still seems quite prone to crashing when using the Annotations facility.

Hello,

I suspect, you suggest to copy/paste the symbol too and not only the use
element. That won't be implemented int the comming release. I added that
suggestion in the wish list.

Re: SVG: Copy & Paste: Amaya 10 pre-release

Jonathan Chetwynd

Irène,

isn't it the case that copy and paste is ignoring the filetypes of  
both the source and destination documents?
the result being mixed html and SVG code as demonstrated in both the  
cases attached.

is there an option to create a new svg document?
File new document, has no SVG option...
the 'document profile' does not include an svg option.

how do you intend to ensure the code validates in future?

indeed not only the element, but also the symbol, ~:"

cheers

We intend to work on SVG in next release, but today it's too early to activate
that option. In your case, you may activateit in Amaya/config/amaya.profiles
by removing the # before #&NewSVG.
