CaseTalk Viewer v2.7 has improved it's support for documentation. It uses the annotation block to express the business meaning of the columns in the table, and also accompanies this with an example population.

Every time you now start a new session, you may specify the defaults for your custom attributes to keep track of this specific session scope. AND additionally you may now for the first time ever, reorder the roles in the expressions by opening up the expression edit dialog and drag the object types to the destination you desire.

CaseTalk Modeler 8.12 contains some grand and brand new features, enabling you to construct your model without the immediate mandatory details our FCO-IM community is used to. These functions have been added to both provide more speed during intense modeling sessions for advanced users, and also to provide a less steep learning curve to beginners.

Also our menu structure has received a big, long overdue overhoul. The "tasks" menu is now available from the main menu, contextual menu's and provides menu items for constructing and editing the model in various ways. This also adds to the visible power of the method and tool.
