Today we released version 1.2 of ShapeChef. Click here to download the installer for this free update.
ShapeChef is now fully compatible with PowerPoint 2016 for Windows. In particular, we have added support for the new Office UI themes so that ShapeChef seamlessly blends in with the Office 2016 user interface.
When right-clicking on a category header in the shape library, you will now see additional “Expand/Collapse” menu items that let you expand or collapse multiple categories with a single click.
Until this version, the ShapeChef application was installed to the current user’s “AppData\Roaming” (%AppData%) directory, and the user data (shapes, logs, etc.) were stored in the “Documents” (%UserProfile%\Documents) folder. From now on, all ShapeChef-related files are stored under “AppData\Local” (%LocalAppData%). Existing files will be moved automatically when you start ShapeChef 1.2 for the first time.
We have made this change to mitigate performance and synchronization problems in corporate environments that use roaming profiles and/or redirect user folders to network locations.
