5.39.04 Released 2019.09.13

Template Master Spawn Template Improvement) Internal testing of the last version with improved style sorting indicated that the Adobe InDesign sorting methods were occasionally failing to fully sort all the styles. We made a change in the hope that it sorts all the styles rather than most of the styles. JIRA INDESIGN-2543

Template Master Spawn Template Bug Fix) While doing in-house testing on the Spawn Template feature, we noticed that the next time the feature was used, the Preset Configuration wasn't being loaded. This has been fixed. Note, this only applies to users of Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud Version 14.0.3 and newer. JIRA INDESIGN-2634.

Template Master Spawn Template Bug Fix) Again, while the BLOX Total CMS team was testing this the 5.39.03 update they had an issue when the site (like a new site) didn't have an existing named configuration. It was preventing the dialog from opening. This too has been fixed. JIRA INDESIGN-2634

Template Master Spawn Template Improvement) The names of the Spawn Template Configurations are now sorted. In the past they appeared in the order they were created. JIRA INDESIGN-2634

5.39.03 Released 2019.09.10

Template Master Spawn Template Improvement) We had some users report that on occasion not all of their styles would sort. We have made some changes to the sorting routines. However, it might still not work perfectly for the aging Creative Suite versions of Adobe InDesign. We have very limited control over those old, old versions and we no longer test on those versions. JIRA INDESIGN-2543

Template Master Spawn Template Bug Fix) Because of some internal logic of the way Spawn Template worked, the resultant template file was potentially larger than it should be. This has been corrected. In addition, we now log the size of the new template. JIRA INDESIGN-2581

PCAB Obituary Export Changes) The prior change to the encoding of the PCAB XML for obituaries failed to actually change the deceased's name as was requested. This has been correct. This only affects the single site using the PCAB export. JIRA INDESIGN-2599

5.39.02 Released 2019.09.09

Behavior Change) Client 5.35.02 released 2018.12.13, copied snippets before they are placed on pages. This prevents them from being locked by two or more users or even by the same layout user when using the Create Edition from Edition File function. But, we had one group of sites that created their snippets with links to an IP address and then changed the IP address of their system and it broke all the links in their snippets. Adobe InDesign would relink these broken files because the links were relative when they were left in their original location, but it would fail to relink when the snippets were copied before being placed. While the links are indeed broken because of the way the links were created (via IP address instead of DNS name), we are creating support for a backupSnippetBeforePlacement.disabled file which can be dropped in the root of the tcms_data share to disable the copying of snippets before placement. JIRA INDESIGN-2628

Minor Behavior Change) We added some additional logging of all the active enabled and disabled files found at a site. This is for troubleshooting purposes only. JIRA INDESIGN-2628.

Template Master Bug Fix) Spawn Template was becoming non-responsive after saving a configuration. This was due to a bug in the ScriptUI API that Adobe provides us with. Adobe has fixed this bug in Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud 2019 version 14.0.3. For Adobe InDesign users lower than this version, the ability to save a configuration has been removed and replaced with a warning message. JIRA INDESIGN-2634

Minor Bug Fix) The 5.35.02 version of the client added an important feature to backup snippets when they are placed. This has prevented snippets from getting accidentally locked by the OS and it has helped with troubleshooting damaged or corrupt snippets. But if users were placing BLOX Total CMS snippets on documents that are NOT named for BLOX Total CMS, folders were being created in the Adobe InDesign Documents folder. This no longer happens. REMEMBER: Non-BLOX Total CMS named documents should NOT be used when logged into BLOX Total CMS Adobe InDesign Client. This has always been the case. However, the reason this issue was addressed is that it also created these unwanted folders when the Template Masters were placing snippets on Master Documents -- and that is a valid and desirable action necessary to keep the Master Documents and the Template files up to date. Sites should no longer find oddly named folders created after placing snippets. JIRA INDESIGN-2639

5.39.01 Released 2019.09.05

Template Master Spawn Document Bug Fix) Some sites had master documents that the Spawn Template feature couldn't unlock items on and that didn't allow all the pages to be deleted. This has been fixed. JIRA INDESIGN-2635

Template Master Ruleset Command) New Skip Lines Translate Script Command. There is a new skip command that can be used in Translate Rulesets to skip over a specified number of lines. This effectively creates an option to translate when there is no matching tags. For details see the BLOX Total CMS help page on help.bloxcms.com. JIRA INDESIGN-2638
