The purpose of this version is to make the system more open, easier to use and complete.
The changes are the following:
- Matrex is now able to import xls (Excel) files: open a Matrex project, from the project menu open the import dialog and load the Excel file:
Here you can select rectangles of cells that you import as matrices in the project.
- Matrex has now a context help. Pressing Ctrl-F1 (or F1) in each window, the browser shows the help page for that window.
A copy of the help is available online.
The help has also a summary page and can be full-text searched in the search dialog:
- The 2D charts have been simplified and improved. Now there are only 3 kinds of charts (category, xy, time), but you can display their series in up to 7 different ways (line, line3d, bar, bar3d, area, scattered, scattered line):
- The Expression Parser is now able to interpret expressions containing +,-,*,/,^ operators. The operators are translated to the related functions.
Now it becomes really easy to build projects in Matrex.
