Santa — all I want for Christmas is a beta release.
All the features are in and most things now work, so I’m officially changing the designation from alpha to beta.
This release adds the big missing feature — printing. I wrote a TimeOut Mac Print Setup app to configure your printer. There are three different results you can get from printing.
Mac Printer – this prints through the Mac print architecture. The result is printed paper or PDF (if you so choose).
RTF Clipboard – this takes the print results and copies it to the clipboard.
Save to RTF – this takes the print results and allows you to save them to an RTF file.
The new Deja IIx Printer supports Bold, Underline, Superscript, Subscript, Italic (SC1/SC2) and Strikethrough (SC3/SC4). There is a mechanism for mapping characters per inch to actual Mac fonts and size. And you can specify different font/size mappings depending on the final results — so you can have one set of font mapping for printing and another when copying the results to the clipboard and even another when saving it to a file.
You can look at Deja IIx-PrinterCodes.plist in the Deja IIx support folder. I’m still working on an interface to allow you to edit these more easily — but that’s definitely a beta thing.
Latest Release: Deja IIx 2.0b1
