Re: merge utility

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)

This has happened before. It seems to occur when the old and new programs are just not compatible. If faced with such a situation, I'd make sure to import any specialized dictionaries and let the rest go. I went from 15 to 16 without a full merge, because 15 had some minor damage, and I didn't want to cripple a brand new release; it was easy and problem free to make the few tweaks I regularly use.

I don't know how appropriate or beneficial this could be, but if someone on the list would be willing to craft a petition regarding this issue, we might be able to get enough signitures to make an impact.

Sometimes, I just scratch my head at these kinds of decisions.

I certainly will sign any such petition, if it is created.

I'm looking to upgrade to Jaws 17, possibly during the college teaching semester break, but that won't be for about 8 weeks for me at this point, and I sure would like to have the use of the merge utilities feature again.
I know there have been issues with it at times, but the convenience and ease of using it far outweighs any problems, in my opinion.

I'm going to write to FS Tech Support and ask for this deficiency to be fixed. I hope others will do the same so they realize how important this is.
Can you imagine a popular commercial application forcing users to start all over again with the settings they've created over the course of years? Note that "merge" was misspelled in the subject line, which I've corrected.

I agree completely. Enough said.

I'm very upset for fs removing the murg utility option in jaws 17.
They have the excuse that older version settings can know longer being
important in 17. I don't know if I must laugh. If they new that it
would happen, why did they not make a priority to implement a
replacement tool wich could be in 17?
Now you have to manually change everything? Is it possible perhaps to
use the settings packager to acomplish that?
I find it so tragic that they spend the hole year on smart navigation,
wich is not even such a remarkable feature, really this was going to
be more bennifishil to more people and now that its not ready it will
affect everyone negatively.
