  • This update only applies to Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud 2015 and later.
  • Removal of forum link within plug-in menu (forum is no longer available).
  • Installation of updates is more stable in this and coming versions (Windows version needs a few extra minutes compared to Mac).
  • Activation/usage of plug-in is optimized to work faster, plug-in will not be affected when server/control center updates are performed.
  • Windows: Issue of crashing upon start of plug-in has been fixed. For previous plug-in versions of Windows 7 users and later, please use this fix: Within the Adobe InDesign folder > Right-click on the application 'InDesign.exe' file and select Properties > Compatibility > Check the box called 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' > Windows 7. Doing this will avoid the plug-in from crashing and acting incorrectly. If needed also select the other files within the plug-in folder and do the same.
  • Even though no new features was added in this specific version of 5.0, we decided to separate it from the older versions of 4.x. So that if needed, we could release updates for older versions (or updated installers) and new versions without mixing them with each other in terms of versions. Many things have been improved internally to offer users a better experience when new versions are released. There are plans for coming out with new features for Grid Calculator Pro Edition (Creative Cloud) sometime in the coming future.
