Out with the old and in with the new ?
 
Came to this thread to add some update info for MagicView, and suddenly,  4 years worth of the thread have vanished.  Server issue ?
 
Since the purpose of the thread was RSS Blog updates... maybe clearing out the old is a wake up call for new ?
 
 
Anyhow..
 
 
So much has happened in the past 4 years (of missing thread..)   gomap abandoned attempt at new ecco,  slang has vastly advanced the extension, and MagicView has evolved past version 8 with more than 45,000 users.  AMAZING.
 
here are recent MV updates and some history (with undocumented features),  to fill in some of the missing thread:
 
 
v8.40B - Added feature: Email object insertion to folder allows REPLACING file name with Prefix. (End prefix with "*").  4/16/13.
 
8.38B - Object copies to dropbox allowed for folder objects; Allows inserting objects & object links at clone items. 4/8/2013.
 
8.35B - Improve object copies to dropbox folders- over length filename spliced at center, not at start; improve .eml clips (retention of sender info, etc. w/ microsoft formatted email. 3/10/13.

8.20B - Update: Duplicate images, drag & drop files, emails, etc., no longer replace previously grounded file with same name.  Cost = more disk space taken for duplicate images from same sites.  Benefit = prior clips do not change when images later change & new clip is made with those images,  and,  each drag & drop will now add latest version of file/email, not replace previous. 12/5/12.

v8.00B - Drop/Watch Folder saved between sessions for each ecco file; integration for pale moon browser; *undocumented feature* Holding shift key down while selecting "HTML Copy" (right click menu & Shift right click menu), will copy ENTIRE MV Page as HTML, instead of selected portion of page as HTML; Advanced Folder Options onfiguration option added to clip filenames in 8.3 DOS name format, speed improvements.  10/18/12.

Just to note update of MagicMerge, adding some depth to high-end internal Word merge features, improved instructions on how to use the advance merge features, and some small bug-fix.
 
All in all,  MagicMerge is a pretty cool tool.
 
 
May open board for sharing MagicMerge templates..
