126.96.36.199 New Features
Released to Clients on 12/10/2015.
This release includes the following additions and modifications to functionality:
The BPP Asset Manager dialog now has a personal property Segment sort order selection, positioned below the lower right corner of the grid. The sort order settings are saved with the User configuration. They are loaded when the grid configuration is loaded. This sort is in addition to the existing Sub-Segment sort selection and has the same options.
The selection has the following sort orders available:
Data Entry Sort – sorts by segment ID, set when the segment was first entered
Year Acquired Sort
Sorts segments by the Year Acquired field
If ‘Year Acquired’ on segments is the same, subsequent sort will be by segment depreciation type then depreciation code
Sorts the segments by Type code
If ‘Type’ on segments is the same, will subsequently sort by segment year acquired
The Asset Manager dialog now has both Segment and Sub-Segment sort selections.
Prorations are now consistently prorated against the total Assessed Value before being compared against the remaining property value. This applies the maximum exemption value.
Before this, the proration would be applied to the remaining taxable property value after applying all exemptions. An exemption worth 100% of the assessed value that was prorated for 6 months would be applied to 50% of the remaining value, instead.
We implemented Windows settings in release 8.1.25 that will give the PACS applications an updated feel specifically with drop-down fields and dialog boxes. This may affect the way you work if you ‘tab’ through a PACS screen.
There is a feature in Windows so that the underline does not show up under the shortcut key on controls (e.g., buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels, etc.) unless the user presses the Alt key.
Solution #1 – Using the Alt Key
Press the Alt key to show the underlines, and the focus rectangles will begin to appear consistently.
Solution #2 – Changing the Windows System Setting
Go to Control Panel and choose Display
On Display Properties, choose the Appearance tab
Uncheck “Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key”
Click OK until you are out of Display Properties
Go to Control Panel and choose Ease of Access / Ease of Access Center
Choose “Change how your keyboard works”
Under the heading “Make it easier to use keyboard shortcuts”, check “Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys” as shown below
