  • Text output (often printed) supports selectable wrap column and two modes of wrapping automatically, and the headings of columns wrapped the same.
    • Column Mode - if last column in line is column to wrap in and has more than a minimum number of characters on line will wrap in column for easier printing (see image below).
    • Line Mode - when many more columns to still be printed, the remainder of the line is wrapped and indent to align with start of second column for easier reading
  • Text mode remove extra spaces from end of all lines
  • File Modifier can be set as well as extensions, shipped default is to add '-BOM' to filename and use extensions '.csv', '.txt', '.html'
  • Sorting in Value mode now also secondary sorts by Part Names (C1, C2..) for better groupings.
  • All settings for the controls on the Main dialog box can be edited in an include file see Help and comments in file. This way the user does not have to set their preferred method every time.
