  NiXPS v1.5.1: the best NiXPS app ever!
Today we released previews for our NiXPS v1.5.1 update to selected users.
By name it is a minor update, but the software contains a lot of bugfixes, improvements and even some extra features. We also took some time to improve the UI of the app:

  1. New toolbar icons: zoom controls & page navigation.

    We've added buttons for zoom in, zoom out and fit page on the toolbar for quick access.

  2. Reading a large doc: space is your friend

  3. XPS documents can be large, so we want to make sure screen reading is a pleasant experience. One can navigate page per page via the page list panel, but to improve screen reading we've added a shortcut to help reading: space.
    When you hit space, the preview window will advance the text a substantial bit - but not a complete page, so you do not get disoriented when reading.
    Like all things you need to get used to it, but give it a shot, we're sure you'll like it: open a large document, View>Fit Width, and then during reading just hit space to advance the text.


  4. Cleaned up the tool dialogs

  5. The interface for the extract, merge and search & replace tool has improved. You'll notice cleaner dialogs, with a better focus on displaying the important information to the user. The user is also presented with an improved UI for giving in the required parameters.




Most of these changes come from sharing experience with users. We want to make sure that the application is a pleasure to use, and a lot of this comes from having a good UI.

We expect to go final with v1.5.1 later this week.

Enjoy!
