Autumn is a golden time of year. A perfect time to cuddle up with your Macbook and let your creative juices flow. We hope that our newest update for Mail Designer Pro 3.0.6 inspires you to create even more amazing newsletters. We’re happy to announce that as of today you can download the Mail Designer Pro 3.0.6. The new version has a lot of improvements for creative professionals.

NEW: Replace Image

We’ve all been there: You’ve designed a great header image with the perfect font, logos, call-to-action button – everything. Then your clients asks you to change the background photo for something “more fun”. Ugh.

Introducing ‘Replace image’ – simply swap out any image for a “better” one, while keeping the size, position and layout of the original.

It’s easy to replace the original picture with a new one in exactly the same location, with the exact same size as before, and all of the original layout properties of the picture layout block. When you replace a picture, the graphics and fonts remain where and how they were.

Mini Makeover: Style improvement

It’s easy to lose track of everything when you use a lot of styles. You guys have told us what you like about styles and what needs improving: First off, the lock is gone. Next: we’ve improved the indicator that lets you know which style is currently selected. And we’ve also fixed a few bugs that could occur when switching between styles and ’No style’ text. And we’ve also removed the confusing ‘All emphases’ option – simply select all text and hit ‘Remove’ instead.

Additional Improvements

  • Shadows are exported correctly
  • The color picker has been improved and we’ve fixed some color profile issues that could lead to colors being slightly off
  • You can now hit Shift+Return to inert a simple line break instead of starting a new paragraph
  • Resizing with modifier keys works like in other apps
  • An issue that could cause exported PDFs to cut off has been fixed
  • Alignment guides are now underneath layout block edges, so they aren’t accidentally selected when you’re trying to adjust your layout

Let us know if you have any comments or thoughts on the new update! Your Mail Designer Pro Team

VPN Tracker 365: Ready for Sierra & PPTP VPN for macOS Sierra

By | VPN Tracker | No Comments

macOS Sierra will be out on September 20th and brings a number of improvements and security updates. So we wanted to give you an update on what it means for VPN Tracker.

VPN Tracker is ready for macOS Sierra

VPN Tracker 365 is ready for macOS Sierra today – so you’re all set and can start using Sierra immediately. We’ve improved a number of back-end components so things work smoothly with the new version.

And of course this update is free for all VPN Tracker 365 plans.

But that’s not all…

PPTP VPN – now in VPN Tracker 365

Apple has removed support for PPTP VPNs in macOS Sierra. That means you’ll no longer be able to connect your PPTP VPN via System Preferences.

So we’ve added PPTP support to all VPN Tracker 365 plans: it’ll find your existing PPTP VPN connections and automatically import them for you.

Then you can simply connect to your PPTP VPN with VPN Tracker. You can even take advantage of features like VPN shortcuts and automatic connection actions. PPTP VPN support is available with all VPN Tracker 365 plans only (PPTP is not integrated in our one-time purchase version VPN Tracker 9).

We’ll be rolling out PPTP support as a free update to VPN Tracker 365 customers over the next few days – if you’re eager to give it a try, download it today and test it free.

Spot Maps – map your smart home network devices with macOS Sierra

By | Spot Maps | No Comments

Spot Maps, our network scanning and mapping tool, is now ready for macOS Sierra.

We’ve all got a lot of devices on our home and office networks nowadays – Macs and PCs, but also increasing amounts of smart home devices, wireless printers, routers etc.

Figuring out how all those devices are connected can be a challenge: How do you get to your printer’s configuration page? Which IP address does your Apple TV have? And what services are running on your Raspberry Pi?

Screen Shot 2016-09-06 at 10.16.29

Spot Maps makes it easy to figure all that out and lets you drag and drop devices onto a visual overview of your network.

Spot Maps includes support for tabs under macOS Sierra, so you can easily create multiple maps of your network, e.g. one for each floor or office building.

Take control of your network and devices – with Spot Maps.
Try it free today.
