I installed and maintained special edition at a local restaurant 6 years ago. I make menu changes for them weekly, and I have ZERO problems.So, I recommended it to another restaurant and installed it for them, as they only have one terminal. I also installed it on one of their laptops to create the menu on the laptop and then transfer it to the server terminal. During menu creation I am having severe errors occur. For instance, cannot copy and paste buttons, when in design mode if I click on a list button to highlite it the list pops up over the button and I can no longer grab the button to move it. Crazy things I have never experienced before. Any thoughts? Could it be that the server terminal and the laptop are networked and the Special Edition software is reacting to that?
The report designer module has changed. Whereas before copy and paste was relatively easy, now you must click on the background before the paste. Using Control+c and Control+v are also more useful. Notice the palate has added copy and paste functionality to the left of the buttons. This is to help you know when copy and paste are active and available.
ALSO, after pasting, leave design mode for run mode and return to design mode to see the changes. In some cases, the changes appear immediately. In other cases, you must switch to run and back to design to see the changes.
We are working on some enhancements to make the process more intuitive.
