CueTimer Changelog

Windows

  • v. 2.6.0.3 (11. November 2023)
    -FIXED an issue where the app could crash when closing the fullscreen window.
    – FIXED an issue where the preview-window could resize unintentionally
    -CHANGED so that the fullscreen window always stays on top of the preview when both are displayed
  • v. 2.6.0.0 (23. October 2023)
    – IMPROVEMENTS to the preview-window:
    It stays on top of PowerPoint in slideshow-mode, and other fullscreen windows
    The preview-window doesnt take keyboard-focus. This means that you can use the keybaord for other apps while moving the window around with the mouse
    ADDED border around the window when the mouse hovers over it, to make it easier to see the drag-resize handles
    When the preview-window opens and closes, the old position is kept

    – CHANGED the default port for network-connection to 36001
    – ADDED options to remove zeros ahead of numbers for the counter, for example 4:00 instead of 04:00

    – FIXED a bug where timers at the top of the list would always get 10 min duration
    – FIXED a bug where changing a timer-type from countdown could freeze the timer-list
    – IMPROVED auto-schedule feature: when insterting new timers below timers with an end-time, the start-time of the new timer will automatically get this value (when auto-schedule is on)
    IMPROVED importing timers when auto-schedule is on: if the end-time of the previous timer doesnt match with the start-time of the next, a spacer will be inserted in the list

    – ADDED new network-commands for changing the duration of the main timer:
    Set the main timer to any duration
    Add or substract minutes to the main timer of any value. For example, create a button that adds 30 minutes
    – ADDED network-command for initializing the list. Then list will then have one timer with the default values
    – ADDED feedback/variables for displaying schedule-offset. This shows how much the list is delayed compared to the original start-times
  • v. 2.5.0.18 (3. September 2023)
    – ADDED a spreadsheet-import menu with support for CSV &TSV files and pasted spreadsheet-data.
    – ADDED an optional Auto-Schedule mode where the timers are linked with start and end-times
    – ADDED Quick Timers which lets you insert specific timer-types with keyboard-shortcuts and buttons.
    – ADDED option for Default timer-values which are applied every time a new timer is created. This replaces similar options in the New Timer menu.
    – CHANGED some of the names: Fire Next = Start, end-action Stop = Hold, among more.
    -FIXED an issue with the empty timer-type: now you can move it freely in the list
  • v.2.4.0.25 (18. May 2023)
    The timer-list has got several improvements:

    – faster cell-formatting when selecting cells for editing– the timer in the main output now has a bold font making it easier to notice
    – Timer-cells can now be cleared, making it easier to create the list from an empty spreadsheet
    – The column-layout is changed, with the start/duration/end/ to the left. 
    – MOVE buttons Changes the assignment of the next timer to play. This replaces the old “set next” button
    -The new option “link edit and cue” merges the selection for editing and assigning the next timer to play. This makes it easier to quickly select and start new timers. 
    – Only one timer can now run simultaneously. Because of this, the “Reset” button is discontinued
    – Insert multiple timers from the new timer menu
    – UNDO/REDO: The whole timer-list is now covered by undo/redo. Delete timers, change names and regret yourself later
    – AUTOSAVE: The timer-list is now automatically stored to file when making changes. This means that if you accidentally shut down CueTimer, you can restart the app and the timer-list will be back to where it was.
    – COUNTUP WITH DURATION: The count up-timer type now has a duration, mirroring the countdown. For count up-timers that dont have a duration, we created the new timer-type “Stopwatch”
    – When the running timer has entered “overtime”, it is now possible to still edit this timer.
    – SEE WHEN A TIMER STARTS: The start-time cell for the running timer now shows when the timer started. This number can be edited.
