What's new in version 1.5

  • Navigate quickly with improved and added menus and menu choices; menu names and interfaces are now more intuitive, descriptive and meaningful.
  • All new extensive help and detailed documentation system in the Macintosh Help menu. All new online ProTERM help and documentation files.

  • Connect directly to a service without opening a dialog window (set by preference).
  • Countless new user-scripting goodies added or improved in ProTERM's DIRC scripting language, including new and updated DIRC documentation.
  • Reformat text using "Remove Spaces" stream filter power tool to convert any sequence of multiple spaces to a single space. This is a very cool tool for grabbing text from a web page and converting any selected part of it to full paragraph and left flush text! Select all from the web page, choose copy, open a ProTERM document, and paste. Choose Remove Spaces from the Edit menu and its done! Better yet, a multiple sequence of spaces to a single space, and all spaces from the beginning of a the Edit:Convert menu. Better yet, select the text and press and hold the command key while pressing the keypad zero key (the keypad to the right of the keyboard). Do it a number of times until the desired formatting is achieved. The resulting text will also be converted to curly, or typographer quotes.
  • Run aliases from the ProTERM Scripts, Connect and Help menus.
  • Create custom key equivalents. ProTERM 1.5 offers about 100, special keys with instructions on how to change existing or create hundreds more. See "Resident User Custom Keys" in the ProTERM Help menu.
  • Robots love ProTERM!: A new option in the Send ASCII dialog window; "Append Linefeed to Return" does exactly as its name implies, it adds a linefeed after each return during an ASCII send. This feature was added for customers who use ProTERM Mac to control big toys: machine shop $100K+ milling machines, the Federal Government's robot microscopes, and other controller applications which may benefit from this addition.
  • Encode and decode "secret" messages easily "Translate ROT-13".
