The following is a list of the significant changes in Sweet P 1.1 from version 1.0.
- New button type -- Menu Keys. When you create a Menu Key button, you choose a key and a combination of modifier keys. When you click the button on Sweet P's palette, the modifier/key combination is sent to Mailsmith, just as though the keys were pressed on the keyboard. This enables you to use Sweet P buttons to perform actions that aren't scriptable in Mailsmith, such as Reply, Forward, and Redirect -- or any other command available in one of Mailsmith's menus.
- Label buttons are dramatically faster. If you tried the Label buttons in version 1.0 but found them too slow to be useful, I encourage you to try them now. The effect is nearly instantaneous.
- New buttons are now added at the current row selection, rather than at the bottom of the listbox.
- The list heading in the Preferences window now counts "items" rather than "buttons", since spacers are included in the count.
- "Windoid Appearance" tab changed to simpler "Appearance"
- Added nominal wait before activating Mailsmith, to allow very fast machines (G4s?) to catch up.
- When adding a new Script button, the standard file dialog to select the script is now opened automatically.
- Bug fixed in which spacers couldn't be added after having cancelled a previous new button dialog.
- Sweet P no longer crashes if its prefs file is locked. (There is still no good reason to lock the prefs file, however.)
- Fixed bug in which a crash would occur if a Script button could not find its associated AppleScript file (for example, if the file had been deleted.)
- Numerous minor glitches were fixed, polished, or hidden.
