• PATTERNMAKER REVISION HISTORY (OLD)
    1.0.19 December 1, 2004
    Initial Release
    1.0.20 December 13, 2004
    Modified plug-in to load in Cyrillic languages (such as Russian)
    1.0.21 December 24, 2004
    Optimized some of the patterns for certain PostScript printers.  This revision will convert the patterns of any document created using previous versions when you open the document.  Also fixed a small problem that would shift the patterns when you modified them if you had shrunk the bounding box of the page item containing the pattern.
    1.0.22 December 27, 2004
    Fixed a problem that snuck into 1.0.21 where changing an existing pattern by switching the pattern type caused an error message to appear.
    1.0.26 July 20, 2005
     PatternMaker is now version 1.1 for CS and CS2.  It's free and comes with three patterns.  More patterns sold separately.
    1.2.32 November 3, 2005
     PatternMaker is now version 1.2 for CS and CS2.  It has been updated to support BarcodeMaker and PatternPack 1.2.
    1.2.33 November 6, 2005
    PatternMaker now plays nicely with INX and InDesign CS2 libraries.  Also, due to issues on the Mac side, we don't show our splash screen on startup anymore. Fixed an issue some users were having: on rare occasions, an activated plug-in would claim to be expired on startup, even though it wasn't.
    1.3.34 January 30, 2006
    Support for new BarcodeMaker release.
    1.3.35 March 13, 2006
    Patterns now default to CMYK black, not RGB.  When dragging a snippet pattern onto a page, we sometimes didn't keep the font name; now we do.  Also, installers are here on Mac and Windows!
    1.3.36 April 23, 2006
    Added options for BarcodeMaker
    1.3.37 June 19, 2007

    An unnecessary error message was popping up when deleting a swatch. That is now fixed.
    2.0.0.10 August 22, 2007
