  • In the Statistics menu you can now create some html pages with the statistics information, those files will be created in the temp folder and opened automatically in the browser;
Statistics gathering
I’ve added the question to send some statistical information to me. The question will be asked right after the start of Picto-Selector and the question will  appear when the following conditions are met:
  • Last time the statistics were send is at least 6 months ago
  • Picto-Selector has been in use for at least 2 months (after installation)
  • Picto-Selector has been started at least 5 times (after installation)
When the question is cancelled the question will no longer be asked.

An example of those statistics can be found at:

Version 1.6.28 is now online. (March 15)

Added:

  • 57 New Sclera pictos;

Changed:

  • When copying pictos in the pictosheet to the clipboard the pictos will now be saved to temporary files and used in the clipboard. This way the picto will also include the layout (background color and border) that is used in the pictosheet;

Fixed:

  • The user settings for inserting in Word / picto maker and picto sheet was not properly stored;
  • The checkboxes for the selected symbol sets were not properly checked;

Did you know:
You can hide categories (for example the 16+ category)? Login as administrator and go to administrator settings.

 

Version 1.6.27 is now online. (February 15)

Added:

  • 46 New Sclera pictos

Fixed:

  • When adding multiple images as user or network picto the name of the last jpeg image was used for all images afterwards.

 

Version 1.6.26 is now online. (January 17)

Added:

  • Italian language for Picto-Selector, the application is now translated completely
  • Portuguese (European) language for Picto-Selector, the application is now translated completely
  • It is now possible to change the background color of selected photo pictos
  • Functionality to add user and network pictos as symbolsets to the pictolist:

When you add your own images in the user or network pictos menu then you can select a Category Group (1 to 9) and in the picto list you can select one of these groups as a symbol set. These Category groups can also be given a name in the administrator settings. So basically you can now add several symbol sets with the “User Pictos” and “Network Pictos”.
