TFW Applications update at 6 October 2023
This page provides information about a set of significant changes to TFW Applications released on 6 October 2023.
Head calibration dialog now respects number formatting for the current culture during numeric entry.
Previously, the head calibration dialog used standard textboxes and parsed the input assuming that full-stops were used as decimal separators. This was confusing for users when the local number format uses commas as decimal separators, especially as numeric entry in parameter sets is parsed according to the number format specified in the local culture. Head calibration now matches this behaviour.
The ViewExport service now uses 96 dpi for the export resolution
It previously used 150 dpi (seemed like a good idea at the time) but that produced inappropriately sized bitmaps on most systems (96 dpi is the usual nominal display resolution).
(Since no-one even knows that the ViewExport service exists, this is hardly a momentous update.)
