  • Option to display insert trace of endline space

    • Under Community Review on 25 Feb 2021
    Recently, when a space insertion is located in the endline, there is no trace and bar displayed in Xyview. I would suggest to add an option in JT/DT to choose to display it or not to display it for different purpose.

  • Extending/Enhancing XPP frills processing

    • Under Community Review on 20 Nov 2019
    Frills processing has been a long time with us and it has been a very useful 'extension' to XPP. However there are a lot of limitations in the current implementations. If only we would have: Allow for multiple fg macros on the same line each triggering...
