Fixes/Changes in 2.5.1.7

  • WORD MENU IS NOW COMPATIBLE ON INTEL MACS 10.5 and higher: The software now runs on native Intel machines.
  • CHILD-SAFE LEXICON REMOVED: Due to technical issues, the Child-Safe Lexicon option has been removed.
  • WORD MENU 2.4 NOW WORKS WITH MOVIE MAGIC SCREENWRITER 6.0.3 AND ABOVE: If you have Movie Magic Screenwriter 6.0.3 or higher, you can highlight a word and then have it search for that word in Word Menu by clicking the Word Menu Icon* on the Toolbar. NOTE: Presently, under 10.7 and higher, you may need to launch Word Menu and have it running in the background for Screenwriter to request word lookup. A fix for this will be in the next release of Screenwriter.

    * Please refer to the Movie Magic Screenwriter 6 Manual on how to add Word
    Menu to your ToolBar.
