Usability & Compatibility
A major focus of this release has been on usability and visual enhancements as
well as making Faswin completely compatible, and compliant with Windows Vista
and Windows 7 requirements. There are literally dozens of new usability
improvements throughout the program, most of which you won't overtly notice.
One very important improvement for many is the ability to set the font size
which Faswin uses. Although we've made the default font size slightly bigger by
default, you are free to select your own preferred font, and font size. This
makes reading the screens easier especially for those of us getting older.
You'll find a Select Font item in the Tools
Under Windows Vista, and Windows 7, program data should no longer be stored in
the Program Files area of your hard drive. Faswin 3 makes it easy for you to
move your data, if you choose, to a new location. It also allows you to easily
use data stored on a network drive. You'll find a Change Data Folder
option in the File menu that lets you do this.
Easier to capture, and update assets.
By including all the necessary information for an asset on a single screen, the
amount of effort it takes to capture an asset has been reduced. There are also
numerous usability improvements when capturing assets.
Importing Asset Information from Excel
If you need to edit a number of assets at the same time, you can import these
changes from Excel. This allows you not only to input new assets quickly, but it
also allows you to modify existing assets. You may choose to import as many, or
as few, settings for an asset as you like.
Exporting data to Excel, PDF and Email
Coupled with support for importing from Excel is improved support for exporting
to Excel. All the browses in the program, including the asset list, sales list,
and others can be exported to Excel by using the Send-To button. Indeed this
button allows you to send the list to Excel, PDF, Word or even straight to the
printer. You can also choose to send the resultant file (PDF, Excel etc) to
another person via Email.
When printing, you can choose to print to either the normal printer, or to a PDF
file. PDF documents are the de-facto standard for electronic document storage
easily allowing you to print later on any printer. They are also easy to email
and can be viewed on any computer which has the free Adobe PDF reader installed.
They are also web-ready and can be added to internal or external web sites if
Improved Print Previewer
The print previewer has been completely overhauled. It now has the ability to
display multiple pages at the same time, or to zoom into a single page. You can
also choose to print the whole report or select which pages of the report to
All the reports have had a cosmetic makeover and have an improved layout.
