Changes from 2.48.1 to 2.49:

New Features:

  • Added button 'More' to the right of the custom string fields list in the entry dialog, which shows the context menu.
  • Added dedicated context menu for auto-type associations in the entry dialog, which provides the following new commands: 'Copy Target Window(s)', 'Copy Sequence(s)', 'Copy Item(s)', 'Paste Item(s)', 'Duplicate Item(s)' and 'Select All'.
  • Added button 'More' to the right of the auto-type associations list in the entry dialog, which shows the context menu.
  • Added optional 'Auto-Type - Enabled' main entry list column (turned off by default, can be turned on in 'View' → 'Configure Columns').

  • Controls in the accessibility/automation control tree are now ordered by their visual locations (if the option 'Optimize for screen reader' is turned on).
