pearLabelizer - what's new?

pearLabelizer is a completely new implementation of my classic Mac application pearAddress. It is still a work in progress but it's getting better and better (hmm, at least I hope so).

Version 0.6.3

  • Fixes Lion Compatibility


Version 0.6

  • pearLabelizer is now Universal Binary (support for PPC and Intel Macs).
  • Added AddressBook field 'Nickname'.
  • Address Book Printing now also accepts Smart Groups (however, Smart Groups don't support distribution lists in Tiger's Address Book).
  • Added newline and space stripping: if a line ends up empty because there is no value for the specified keyword, the line is removed automatically. If multiple keywords are on a single line, the first space after an empty keyword is also removed.
  • Invisible newline characters at the end of entries are now ignored.


Version 0.5

  • Added additional AddressBook fields like Prefix, Suffix, Notes, Relation Names, Chat, and more...
  • Printing addresses from AddressBook groups now automatically selects the address according to the settings of AddressBooks distribution lists.
  • Fixed issues with Tiger
  • Updated online-help with added FAQs


Version 0.4.1

  • Added drag & drop support for moving around individual labels.
  • Added support for deleting individual labels via drag & drop onto the docks trash icon.
  • Added vCard drag & drop support (i.e. pearLabelizer now accepts vCards directly from the Finder).
  • Fixed a nasty bug that prevented some addresses and groups of AddressBook from being printed.

Version 0.4

  • Added support for saving and opening label sets
  • Added an option to automatically save current label set on exit (and then load on startup)
  • Added an option to keep labels selected, if individual text is provided for them.
  • AddressBook contacts are now printed alphabetically sorted per group.
  • AddressBook groups now appear alphabetically sorted in the selection list.
  • Main window can now be constrained to the label sheet aspect ratio.
  • Texts defined on a per label basis now also print in AddressBook printing mode.
  • Fixed a bug that caused wrong interpretation of label meassurements under some conditions.
  • Fixed a bug that caused spaces after commas in AddressBook entries to disappear.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the setting "Use selection for first sheet only" in AddressBook printing to be ignored.
  • Fixed a bug that dropped already made changes of label sheet parameters when switching the meassurement unit.

Version 0.3.1

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Print menu item from getting enabled if no global text was entered (thanks to Aleksandr Antsiferov)

Version 0.3

  • Added keyboard shortcut for preferences.
  • Added support for import/export of label definitions.
  • Support of multiple Address Book templates (like label definitions).
  • Added Address Book support for phone numbers, email- and birthday-fields.
  • Now the Print... menu item is only enabled if any labels are selected.
  • Automatic selection of the whole keyword when clicking on it inside the Address Book template field (therefore easier formatting).

Version 0.2

  • Added Address Book Printing function for printing address labels of all members of Address Book groups.
  • Major usability enhancements concerning labelsheet definition handling.
  • Added MacOS X Service capability.
  • New icon.

Version 0.1

  • First official release
  • Currently missing features known from pearAddress:
    - no support for series printing (supported since V0.2)
    - only available in English at this time (opposed to the german-only version of pearAddress)
