One of the major changes in this release is to our interface with WPTools
( - there is a new Addict 3 / WPTools Parser and demo available on the third Party site that demonstrates this new approach.

What's New with Version 3.4

Version 3.4

* Major update to WPTools integration pieces to permit hookup of multiple controls to a single Addict instance and usage of LiveSpell without installing additional components.
* Allow the word at the cursor in a live-spelling control to be spell-highlighted if the control does not have focus
* Changed WordAcceptable to return False if an excluded word is encountered, rather than forcing all apps to check separately for excluded words.
* Added the ability for Control parsers to specify their TComponent (used in determining the proper form for dialog parenting)
* Fixed a dialog parenting / control issue with WPTools where the spelling check dialog would come up under a WPTools component located in a modeless window.
* Fixed possible range check problem when using the LiveSpelling RichEdit components
* Added exception handler for problems loading a MSWord custom dictionary whose file is locked or otherwise can't be opened.
* Added a fix for JvxRichEdit to better work with LiveSpelling
* Fixed an occasional problem with the AutoSpell component attempting to reference the FocusControl when there was no FocusControl.
* Added a fix to propogate LiveMenuOptions properly to RichEdit subclasses when using AutoLiveSpell components Any further questions can be sent direct to me
