There are a few new features in this release that I hope you’ll enjoy along with several bug fixes. You can download the new release here.
Automatic backups. There is now a setting in the preferences to enable the automatic creation of a ZDT backup file whenever the application is closed. The preference is under Window > Preferences… > General and is disabled by default.
Key Assist. This is accessible using Help > Key Assist… (Ctrl-Shift-L). If you have trouble remembering what keyboard shortcuts the ZDT supports, use this feature to see what shortcuts are available in the current view that you’re in.
Definitions pasted as is. When using copy and paste from an external source that’s in the proper tab delimited format (simplified, pinyin, definition), the definition will be added in unchanged. When pasting in individual chinese words/characters, then the current dictionary’s definition will be used.
Remove user dictionary option. I removed the user dictionary from the list of available dictionaries. It seemed to be more confusing than helpful so I just removed it. I’m investigating other ways to incorporate it back in.
Please see the changelog for all of the details.
