Version 21.1

August 31, 2021

New General Features

  • By default, the new version does not change the default macro when you select one of My Macros or press the shortcut key assigned to a macro. This behavior is customizable by the Running one of My Macros will set it as the default macro check box in the Options page of the Customize Macros dialog box.

  • Added the Set Default command to the right-click menu on one of My Macros on the Macros menu.

  • The new version sets the Use DirectWrite option by default (Please disable this option if the speed is most important).

  • The new version shows many OS-supported Emoji Sequences and Emoji ZWJ Sequences correctly when you move the cursor or select the Character Code Value command.

  • Changed the Unicode Name format for combined characters (used a semicolon instead of AND).

  • Disable the radio buttons to select per-user or per-computer install in the installer by default. Please see FAQ to select the per-computer install.

  • Improved the speed of various operations.
