What's new in 4.2

The most important change in ModMan 4.2 is a much improved system for generating reports from the existing tracking system (click here to download a document describing how tracking can be used in ModMan 4.2). Other small changes include:

  • A validation check to test if reviews and protocols are linked to the topics list.
  • A validation check to test if all additional references have links in the text of review.
  • Improved printing of the topics list (properly indented).
  • Different colours for reviews and protocols in exported topics list.
  • Topics list can be expanded to a given number of levels on screen.
  • Cursor is placed under heading when opening the text on a certain section.

What's new in 4.1

In addition to fixing the known bugs in ModMan 4.0.2, the following changes have been implemented:

  • Review/Protocol/Title tracking screens have been redesigned with a bigger list at the top, which is always visible. The tracking (chasing) table has been moved to a separate page so there are now three pages: Review details, Tracking, and General Notes.
  • Review/protocol/title tracking screens show the location of the RevMan that ModMan links to in the title bar.
  • The symbols '+', '-', or 'x' are used on the tracking screens to mark reviews / protocols as included, not included, or broken links.
