SlideFab 2 v1.8 is available now. It brings a couple of logical improvements to the Slide Loops feature. This feature can be used as an alternative or an enrichment to the overall iteration when creating multiple copies of a given slide. Of course, this new version is also available as all free SlideFab 2 LITE edition.

What’s new in SlideFab 2 v1.8

Logical improvements and other changes:
  • Slide Loops: When the total number of slide copies to being created was 0 then SlideFab did not do anything to the slide. Even exclusion conditions were ignored. Now SlideFab will handle such cases as if the slide exclusion condition was true. So, SlideFab won’t put the slide into the output presentation.
  • Slide Loops: So far SlideFab left the content of the Slide Loop Counter cell untouched after finishing the Slide Loop. However, there are cases when Excel formulas need to check whether a Slide Loop is currently running. Accordingly, SlideFab will clean up afterwards and empty this cell properly.
  • A couple of code changes were conducted to improve overall SlideFab robustness when automatically creating slides.
