    Graphic Workshop Professional 15 Revision 10

<http://www.mindworkshop.com/gwspro.html>


*Graphic Workshop Professional 15* has been updated.

*In this release: *

  * *Move and Copy:* A bug that could cause the Move and Copy function
    of Graphic Workshop to crash if it was initiated from a browser in
    smart thumbnail mode under some configurations of Windows has been
    stomped... mercilessly and totally. These things always turn up two
    hours after we release an update... count on it.

    Check the Help → About window — if you have revision 9 or earlier
    installed, we strongly recommend downloading and installing this update.

 From the previous release:*
*

  * WebP Security:**TheGraphic Workshop WebP library has been updated to
    the latest release, 1.4.0. We'd like to take this opportunity to
    urge all users of Graphic Workshop to update to this release.

  * Crop:**Graphic Workshop's Crop window now has a constrain feature.
    Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard when you draw a cropping
    selection rectangle to constrain it to be a perfect square.

  * Archive Manager: The Graphic Workshop installer now includes file
    associations for all the archive formats supported by Archive Manager.

  * Anti-tampering: One of the integral anti-tampering strategies
    included in Graphic Workshop has been hardened to make it even more
    difficult to get around.

  * Screen Capture:The Graphic Workshop Camera screen capture has been
    updated. It now occupies somewhat less memory. The Manual Selection
    mode includes a constrain feature, just like Graphic Workshop's Crop
    window, above. A spurious window frame that could appear in the
    Manual Selection mode under some configurations of Windows has been
    disabused of this behavior.

  * Re-View: Hold down Ctrl and Shift and hit T on your keyboard to
    re-view the most recently viewed picture in your current Graphic
    Workshop browser window.

  * Runtime: The installer for the 64-bit edition now includes
    msvcp140.dll, which is part of the Microsoft redistributable
    runtime. It's supposed to be installed with Windows, but we've
    encountered several reports of late by users who found it was
    missing, and were thus prevented from using Graphic Workshop.

    We're reasonably certain that having an extra copy of msvcp140.dllin
    Graphic Workshop's parent folder won't result in any problems. In
    the event that we turn out to be wrong in this regard, and you see
    an error message when you run Graphic Workshop that mentions it,
    please contact us.
