 New features in version 5

Button panels

 Panels Can now be configured to a given size.  Are now visible even in non-Maximized mode.


 - AniTa includes a new VBA compatible industri standard script engine.


 - This new feature makes it possible to control predefined sets of buttons and actions depending on the screen information.  You can add mouse support on a way that was not possible before.  Certain screen data can trigger buttons, actions and DDE transfer.  Hotscreen functionality and "How to .. " guide is available in the AniTa Programmer' s Reference.

Configurable mouse support

 - The mouse can be configured to any macro.  Left, Middle and Right, single and double click is supported.  New mouse macros like %wordunderpointer% and %smartchar% will send the word or a character from the word the mouse is over.

GDI printer support with configurable attributes like colors, scalable fonts and margins and paper orientation.

 - GDI printer drivers can be used as terminal printers.  This makes it possible to use any Windows printer driver as the destination for printer data sent from the host.  Allows configuration of paper orientation, font, color and margins.
