I must apologise for a new release so soon after the last, but I suspect that some users may find the added commands, and the new column mode in particular, useful now rather than having to wait months for a release.

In effect the column mode divides the page into two independent vertical columns which should provide added flexibility and hopefully allow for page layouts that were previously difficult or impossible to create. The Columns.txt example album file included with this release serves to illustrate the usage of this column mode.

Other than the new commands listed below this release contains no other bug fixes or enhancements. So for those users who already have V3.8 installed, unless they have a need for these new features, there is little reason to upgrade.
  • PAGE_COLUMN_START, PAGE_COLUMN_NEXT and PAGE_COLUMN_STOP commands to split a page into vertical columns for added flexibility when laying out pages.
  • STAMP_ADD_OVAL command for creating oval and circular stamp frames.
  • ALBUM_TITLE and ALBUM_AUTHOR commands to set the title and author attributes of the PDF document. These attributes, visible only in the PDF file properties, have no effect on the printed output.
.
As always, AlbumEasy is completely free and open source. Versions for Windows and Linux as well as the source code may be downloaded from the web site.

First off, let me say what a pleasure it is using AlbumEasy. I absolutely love it!

I would however like to ask if there is a way to rotate stamp boxes, by degrees?

Also, is there a way to "warp" stamp rows to create arcs and such?

Are these things even possible, and are they things that you have toyed with?

Hi spain_1850,
I am pleased that you find AlbumEasy useful.
Unfortunately the current version does not support rotation of stamp boxes but I have added it as an idea to my list of possible future enhancements.
Warping of stamp rows would be far more difficult to implement however, and given that AE is not a graphical program I am not even sure how one would specify the "warpage", so it is not something I could see myself adding.
Regards,
Clive

Hi Clive,
Typically draw apps use a 'align to path' option. So the user would place a curved object and then align the objects to the baseline of the curve.

But I concur that this would represent a significant amount of work.

Thanks Don,
That would be the correct way of doing it, but given the complexity I think that I will leave it for someone else to implement

Has anyone got a Southern Rhodesia and Rhodesia album TXT files even if they are unfinished and need
work on, don't want to re-invent the wheel if anyone has got.
I have a Rhodesia and Nysaland file adapted to my stamps if anyone is interested, no catalogue numbers just numbered to index pages I'm busy with, if anyone is interested.
