Miami, Fla.-based Deneba Software has released the first update to Canvas 7 since November. The update is being offered as a free download to registered users of Canvas 7 via the company's Web site. Canvas 7.0.1 includes an enhanced HTML export tool, which supports older browsers and offers two options for formatting output: HTML 4 with table layout and HTML 4 with cascading style sheets (CSS/2) layout. The HTML 4 with table layout will automatically arrange page elements into HTML table formats. Other enhancements include:

  • An auto-updating feature, which automatically searches for new downloads and installs them without user intervention;
  • One-step painting, which eliminates the need to define a bitmap area before beginning to paint;
  • Global channel resolution adjustments, which allow the user to alter the resolution of all channel masks within a document;
  • Smart selection of objects, which allows users to click behind the transparent areas of objects to select objects behind them.
