Merops October update

24 October 2019

We've updated the Merops Cloud!

Layout

Much better paragraph and layout preservation

  • NEW: Tab stops and line numbers can now be preserved
  • IMPROVED: Much better preservation of graphics, bullets, list IDs, and heading IDs
  • FIXED: Where paragraph returns did not align with recognized document structure, Merops inserted a paragraph break instead of correctly displaying separate paragraphs
  • FIXED: Errors in table border preservation
  • FIXED: Some colour-coding wrongly appearing when turned off
  • FIXED: Errors in paragraph indent preservation
  • FIXED: Paragraphs wrongly merged/broken in many places

Plus, a new internal testing system for output Word documents will improve reliability of future updates.
