OpenTBS Changelog

New in version 1.8.3

February 4th, 2014
  • This version supports the new TBS parameter "parallel" and fixes three bugs:
  • The changed picture is another picture in the document or an empty picture.
  • This could happen if you used the parameter "changepic" with both [onload] and [onshow] or both MergeBlock() and [onshow].
  • Some TBS fields seem to be ignored in ODT files edited with LibreOffice 4 or higher. This was due to a new RSID feature in LibreOffice which inserts invisible XML elements.
  • No data is displayed when merging numerical cells in ODS files built with LibreOffice 4 or higher. This was due to a new attribute in subjacent XML elements.

New in version 1.8.1 (September 2nd, 2013)

  • The loaded template can now be a PHP file handle.
  • MS Excel Sheets are now saved with explicit references for rows and cells, so merged templates are viewable with LibreOffice and other third viewers.
  • Keywords for changing cell types are the same for LibreOffice and MS Office.
  • TbsZip 2.14 is now used.
  • A bug where a DOCX file could be corrupted when using "block=tbs:page" and the last paragraph of the document has no text was fixed.
