Notable Changes in Igor Pro 7.07
- Dramatically increased the speed of loading Excel .xlsx files containing very large numbers of strings.
- Addressed incorrect handling of comma and semicolon when double-clicking just before the comma in "123,456,789" and "123;456;789;" or when option-right-arrowing or option-left-arrowing in such text.
- Windows: Fixed Window Tiling/Stacking Area dialog when Igor's MDI frame window is positioned on a secondary display.
- Fixed setting of the "from cell" and "to cell" vallues in the XLLoadWave dialog when changing the selected worksheet.
- Fixed Find Text in Multiple Windows dialog to allow searching for case variations of the same word (eg. "wave" and "WAVE").
- Fixed initialization of Y axis coordinate system control in Draw dialog.
- Windows: In Igor Pro 7.00 through 7.06, if an ActiveX client launched an Igor instance, a crash would occur if the client called an Igor method before Igor finished initializing. Now the client call to CreateObject (Basic) or CoCreateInstance (C++) will not return until Igor has finished initializing.
- Windows: The errorMsg output from the ActiveX Server Execute2 method was broken in Igor Pro 7.00 through 7.06. It now works.
- Windows: The history output from the ActiveX Server Execute2 method was broken in Igor Pro 7.00 through 7.06. It now works.
- Fixed an infinite loop in the Notebook Action dialog if you clicked the Generate LoadFile Command and then chose a file outside of the Igor Pro folder.
- Fixed handling NaN values when using ImageThreshold with a threshold wave.
- Changed increments on the profile width spin-box in Image Line Profile dialog.
