What's New?

DB/TextWorks and WebPublisher PRO Version 15.5 Released

Version 15.5 of DB/TextWorks (non-SQL and SQL) and WebPublisher PRO became available for general release around March 7, 2016. Customers with maintenance contracts as of that date should have received emails from Inmagic with download instructions. The new and enhanced features are listed below.

  • Rich Text fields - When editing an empty Rich Text field, the Rich Text Editor now defaults to the Text Font specified in the Tools>Options>Display settings. This font is also used when you use Edit Textbase Structure to change the Field Type to Rich Text.
  • MSXML 4.0 - All calls to MSXML 4.0 have been changed to call MSXML 6.0 or later.
  • E-mail Options - The E-mail tab of the Tools>Options dialog box will now retain any specified Mail server IP address.
  • Install Kit - Removed the check for Internet Explorer 6.0 or later
  • Import Document - Addressed an issue importing specific large PDF files
  • Export - When exporting a subset of fields, addressed an issue selecting fields from a linked textbase.

  • MSXML 4.0 - All calls to MSXML 4.0 have been changed to call MSXML 6.0 or later.
  • Exported HTML Edit Forms - Addressed an issue where duplicate new records were created in Internet Explorer only. Each form will need to be re-exported for the fix to take effect.
  • Search - Less than (<) searches now work with Alternative Search Syntax enabled.
  • Search - Proximity and phrase searches that include accented characters in the search criteria now work when accents are ignored.
  • Search - Addressed an issue with IIS Application Pool failures when phrase or proximity searches encountered a record that included accented characters.

Presto for DB/TextWorks

Inmagic has introduced a new product that brings advanced Web-publishing capabilities to DB/TextWorks customers. The new product, “Presto for DB/TextWorks,” is a limited version of Inmagic Presto, that enables many new Web-publishing capabilities for DB/Text, while allowing textbases to continue to be created and maintained in DB/TextWorks."Presto for DB/Text works with both SQL and non-SQL versions of DB/TextWorks.

Presto for DB/Text has been designed for customers that require advanced Web-publishing capabilities without the need for custom programming, which is often necessary when using WebPublisher PRO. Presto for DB/Text does not replace WebPublisher PRO, however; WebPublisher PRO will continue to be enhanced and supported. Presto for DB/Text just gives DB/Text customers an additional option for publishing information to the Internet or their intranet.

See the data sheet for more information about Presto for DB/TextWorks.
