  • Added ZIP archive versions for Windows users in both Full and Symbols Only versions. These require manual installation, and are only recommended for users who do not have the ability to download .exe files or don't have administrator privileges on their computer and can't install the .exe version.

March 29, 2005

  • Added SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) version in .zip and .sit archive packages for those users having trouble with the EPS version.

Version 5.1.1 (Windows installer versions only)

  • Bug fix for the two windows installation packages. For some users the installer was not correctly identifying the presence of Adobe Illustrator on their machines. This fix changes the installer so that unlike 5.1, it does not prevent installation. It simply warns the user that it can't find Illustrator and so they may have to browse to the Illustrator presets directory manually.

  • New eps and svg versions for non-Illustrator users
  • Updated installer to better support non-English versions of Illustrator
  • Mac interactive tutorial now in hqx format
  • Created Mac versions as StuffIt archives, not PC zip as previously
