Kanji Sieve for Windows

Finally.
I’ve cleaned up the display as best I can for Windows. I don’t know whether it is just that I am am used to the display on the Mac, but I’m not 100% happy with how it looks on Windows XP. Maybe it looks better on a more recent release.
I’ve changed the colour to blue for the interface elements. Windows requires the Meiryo font or rather will probably look best with Meiryo. Unfortunately I cannot manage to resolve the display of the Chuta dictionary from within FileMaker, which cuts down the amount that is automated for a Windows user. Mac and Windows use the same base file and I just detect which platform it is running on and the changes happen automatically (more or less!). From the next version (whenever that might be) I hope to have a simultaneous release through more checking as I go along.

The downloads are here and I have a movie demonstrating Kanji Sieve instead of help files.

––update 01Aug10––
And already I have an update. When I was setting conditional formatting for Windows I inadvertently removed the record highlighting from the list view. Version 0.3.2 adds this back. I haven’t uploaded full packages for this just the Kanji Sieve Data.usr file. Replace the .usr file in v0.3.1 with this file. Unfortunately I haven’t implemented import of records yet, so any records you have will have to be re-entered.

  1. Hello Robert.

    Congratulations, program looks great with Windows XP Home SP3, Vista Pro and Windows 7 Pro.

    Everything seems to work OK. Will test Dictionary and FlashCards next week.

    Many thanks,

    Tom

  2. Hi Tom,

    Thanks for having a look at it.
    I’ll email you a copy this weekend that has the chuta pane enabled for windows to see if it works on a version of windows later than XP. Or maybe you might have some thoughts about what is happening.

    cheers
    Robert
