Work in 2014 provided a few new features, improvements to existing features, and a variety of bug fixes. The most important improvements and new capabilities provided in the G7 software are these:

  • Improved Documentation: The G7 documentation was revised heavily in 2012 and has been updated in 2014, with new Help files, Users’ Guide, Reference Manual, Tutorial, and other documentation. Companion documents in HTML and PDF formats also were updated. In particular, recent software improvements and extensions have been added, and cross reference hyperlinks have been added to the Reference Manual.

    4. Added the xl printer command to set page orientation and print area, and also the ability to print directly.
    5. Extended existing routines to select and control graph sheets in addition to worksheets. These include the xl open, xl create, and xl name commands.
