So, What's New in WinPed 10?
Please check the WinPed version shown on your CD (or under the About menu in the program)
then check all the features that were added since then (as shown below).
You asked for it, you got it!
What's New in WinPed 10 Editions (April, 2009)
A New form to Enter and Edit 7-Generation pedigrees. It contains all the entries of the first 5 generations, and it continues on to 6 and 7 generation entries. It has the same look and feel as the standard 5 generation form except that now it extends from zero all the way to 254 entries. It includes Load and Paste, Undo Paste, Upper Case, Upper and Lower Case (using the built-in and your own U/L case dictionaries), Auto Color, Find, Find and Replace, Delete, etc., and Undo (for all entries), plus all the short cuts to copy, and edit entries. You can copy and paste entries from the Internet. When done exit and save the 7-Generation pedigree.
Added buttons to 'GoTo 7-Generation Pedigree' on the main pedigree form and on the Display/Export form. Also, when you are working on the regular 5 generation pedigree form, and you reach the last entry (entry 62), and click Next Page, you'll be asked if you wish to go on to the 7-Generation Pedigree form.
The Find and Replace in All Pedigrees feature is now 10 times faster (on average) than in previous versions (and can be more than 50 times faster under certain circumstances). This speeds things up significantly when the number of pedigrees in your library exceeds several hundred or several thousand pedigrees.
Line Breeding results are now sorted according to length for easier viewing (especially when you are looking at the line breeding results of a 7-generation pedigree). Click here to see an example.
Added an option to print on 13x19 inch (A3+) paper, for wide carriage printers. So now there are 5 paper-size choices (Letter 8.5x11 inch, Legal 8.5x14 inch, Tabloid 11x17 inch, A3+ 13x19 inch, and A4 European size). If you don't have a wide carriage printer to print on Tabloid size or A3+ size paper we can do that for you Click here to see samples.
You can now include a Picture and Line Breeding on 5-Generation pedigrees on all paper sizes in Portrait Orientation, and include a picture on 5-Generation Pedigrees on all paper sizes in Landscape Orientation.
Added a box to enter the number of copies to print, finally :-)
Updated AKC event-entry form and UKC event-entry form (with all the more than 60 check boxes on that form). Both forms had to be completely redone.
Added a choice for printing Picture-Water-Mark in medium or large size.
The Stamped-Picture Border (in which a small picture is stamped all around the pedigree) now displays correctly proportioned pictures using the correct aspect ratio of the pictures. Furthermore, two new check boxes have been added: "Sqr" and "Mirror".
If you check the "Sqr" box then the Stamped-Pictures will be scaled to Square pictures that may not be correctly proportioned (unless the original stamped picture was square), but generates a border with sides of equal thickness. This selection is useful for pictures that have extreme aspect ratios (too tall or too wide)
If you check the "Mirror" box then the right and the bottom sides of the border will be mirror images of the left and top sides of the border, respectively, which gives the border another interesting looking property. Click here to see an Example. Note that some old printers (like the HP 5740) may have a bug in their printer driver and may not print a mirrored border correctly particularly in Landscape orientation (even though they may display it correctly in preview mode). In that case just uncheck the "Mirror" box.
The built-in border image has been removed. Now if you load a picture then click on load border you'll be asked if you wish to use that picture for a border, which helps create beautiful stretched-picture borders or stamped-picture borders. If not, then you can load the border of your choice.
Added the GC (Grand
Champion) title to the built-in dictionary
of upper/lower case.
What's in those New WinPed_Editions (June, 2008)
Three new editions are introduced:
WinPed_Plus (same as WinPed_9.9)
WinPed_Standard (All the WinPed_Plus features less Accounting and less the AKC, UKC, CKC forms)
WinPed_Basic (All the WinPed_Standard features less some of the advanced features. See tabulated summary.)
For a tabulated summary of the features of each edition click here
What's New in WinPed_9.9 (February, 2008)
A new Stretched Picture Border is now available as an option in addition to the Stamped Picture Border. The new Stretched Picture Border can look intriguingly "rustic". It is always harmoniously color coordinated with the printed animal-picture when you use the animal-picture itself as the stretched border. Or, you can load any colorful picture you wish (including those that may be larger that the screen) and use it as a stretched border. The possibilities are endless! A Stretched Picture Border is printed much faster than a stamped picture border.
A new option (check box) to print the words: Sire, Dam, Gr Sire, Gr Dam above the names, in 3- and 4-Generation pedigrees is now available. This feature helps some of your novice customers recognize "Who is Who" in the pedigree.
A new option (check box) to move the filled-in info down on printed AKC Show Entry forms is now available, so that the entered information would be lined up better opposite the various items on the form. (Some Multi-Function, All-In-One, printers are off by about .12 inch in the vertical direction).
For extra-long entries in the pedigree, the program will automatically reduce the font size to accommodate very-long entries in 3-, 4- and 5- generations. This feature was partially included in late releases of WinPed_9.8.
Display of border-pictures on Wide Screen Monitors is now more properly scaled on the screen.
Display of pictures that are Larger than the Screen is now more properly scaled on the screen.
What's New in WinPed_9.8 (November, 2007)
Create your own Macros (Short Cuts), up to 11 of them, and put them in the function keys F1, F2, F3, ..., (these are the keys at the top of your keyboard). Among the original built-in Macros are German titles: SchH1, SchH2, SchH3, FH (in F1, F2, F3, F4), Obedience titles: CD, CDX, UDX, UDT (in F5, F6, F7, F8) and Conformation titles and certifications: Ch., Am/Can Ch., ROM, OFA (in F9, F10, F11, F12), and many more titles are stored in the subsets of F1, F2, etc., like in Ctrl+F1, ...., Alt+F10, .... etc. What is a Macro (or a Short Cut) and how do I use it ? Here is an example of using a built-in Macro: As you enter names in a pedigree, instead of typing Am/Can Ch. you simply press F10 and the words Am/Can Ch. automatically get typed for you ... 1 key stroke instead of 10. In addition to the built-in Macros in WinPed, now you can create your own Macros for titles and words that suite your needs. To do this, you use the keys Shift+F1, Shift+F2, ..., Shift+F11 (Shift+F1 means hold down the Shift key and press F1) and you simply enter the titles, names, or sentences you wish to use, in each Function Key. What if you forget what you put in each function key? Just press Shift+F12, and you get a list of the function keys and the titles, names, or sentences that you put in each key so far. You can also see the other lists of the built-in Macros. Can you change the Macros you already put in? Yes, of course.
Create your own Personal Dictionary of Titles that may not be in WinPed's built-in Dictionary of titles and certifications. WinPed checks the spelling of titles and certifications when you click on 'Upper and Lower Case', and words like ROM/C or OFA GS- remain in upper case, and those containing mixed upper and lower case like SchH3 remain in tact. With the unending stream of titles, you can now enter, save, and edit your own Personal Dictionary, and populate it with titles like AJP, HIBdsc, WCX, MHX, ROMPX, ... etc. which may pertain more to your breed and your sport.
Litter Record was redesigned from the ground-up to conform to the latest AKC form. The new WinPed Litter Record screen form includes an editing box, and an optional box to enter Mating Date which was eliminated in the new AKC form. You can enter up to 80 characters in the Colors and Markings box and up to 3 lines for New Owner - Name, Address, & Telephone. You can print the new Litter Record form without using the "PrtScrn" key (as in the old versions of WinPed), which now makes the printing completely independent of screen resolution. And, Yes! you can load and print the old WinPed Litter Record files (10-entries) in the new WinPed_9.8.
3 New Entry boxes were added in WinPed's Additional Information section: 1) MicroChip type and #, 2) Hip and Elbow (OFA, OVC, etc), and 3) a box for Other Info. where you may enter any other identification or certification information (DNA, CERF, Tattoo, etc). You check the boxes for the items you wish to print on the pedigree, and Yes!, you may select ALL 11 boxes in the Basic info tab plus Breeder and Owner boxes. All this Additional Information (including your business name, address, etc., and a Picture) can be printed on beautifully designed 3- or 4-Generation pedigrees in Landscape orientation.
'Fill/Change Breed Name in All Files' in open folder, was added in Search form.
AKC Award info. , was added in Import Window, which means you can copy and paste the AKC info in the Import Window and then click on "Send to WinPed" button to automatically place the dog's Name, Sire's name, Dam's name, Sex, Reg#, Breeder, and Owner (7 lines) in the proper boxes in WinPed.
New buttons were added in the Display/Export window to Export: 1-Gen and 3-Gen in Catalog Format then copy and paste in MS-Word for publication in Club Catalogs (for example, as in the Annual Wire Fox Terrier Catalog).
New buttons were added in the Display/Export window to Export: 3-Gen and 4-Gen with Name, Sex, Registration#, Breeder, and Owner names displayed above the pedigree, which is a preferred format in some Club Newsletters and publications.
The titles 'JE' and 'SE' but not 'ME' were added to WinPed's built-in Dictionary for Junior, Senior, and Master Earthdog titles. We didn't include 'ME' because it will interfere with "Follow Me", "Me and My Gal" that may be found in dog Names. Also added 'SOD' and 'DOD' (sire and dam of distinction) to the Dictionary.
Note, the last four new additions were included in WinPed_9.7 release C.
Made several enhancements for printing on A4-size paper (used in Europe and many parts of the world).
What's New in WinPed_9.7 (March, 2007)
Pedigree Research: WinPed's Import window now includes a button to convert imported "Framed" pedigrees into WinPed format. In Framed pedigrees on the Internet, each name and its titles is placed in a frame. The Frames are also known as Boxes, or Tables. By copying and pasting the whole framed pedigree into WinPed's Import window, then clicking the Convert button, each entry including titles is automatically placed on a single line. Some framed pedigrees, including those obtained from the AKC (for a fee), may need to be copied and pasted in MS-Word first then copied and pasted in WinPed's Import window. Unframed pedigrees are very easily imported with a direct copy and paste in WinPed's Import window.
You can import 3-, 4-, or 5-generation pedigrees (as usual, here 5-generations means 5 generations behind the animal which is considered 6-generations in some databases).
Also, if you prefer, you may use Ctrl+C to copy highlighted information to the clipboard, and use Ctrl+V to paste it.
While you are in MS-Word window, edit the entries inside the frames (if needed) by deleting lengthy descriptions (as in some German pedigrees), fill in any blank boxes (unknown ancestors) with some xxxxxx (as in incomplete pedigrees), then highlight the frames (or boxes) on that MS-Word page, press Ctrl+C, and paste that info (Ctrl+V) in WinPed's Import window. Now click on the Convert button.
Note: Many framed pedigrees including those generated by Sit Stay or at PawVillage.com can be (should be) copied and pasted in WinPed's Import window directly, without having to copy and paste them in MS-Word first. Edit the extra lines (if any), select "Names From Table" and click on "Send to WinPed". Done! And similarly, practically all unframed pedigrees can be copied and pasted directly into WinPed's Import window (as before).
Note: Some databases require permission, membership, or a one-time fee to use them. PawPeds.com (especially for Cat breeds and a few Dog breeds), PawVillage.com, and several others are presently Free.
Added a Delete 'Sire and Dam' button to the Import window. This deletes the words 'Sire' and 'Dam' (if present) from imported pedigrees.
Added a Trim to End button to the Edit menu (in the main WinPed pedigree form) to trim excess (cluttering) info near the end of entries (this is particularly useful for editing some imported pedigrees). Trimmed entries are shown with a yellow background for easy inspection and there is an Undo button if you make a mistake.
Added a Send to End button to the Edit menu (in the main WinPed pedigree form) to move working titles from the front of the name to the end of the name (this is particularly useful for editing some imported pedigrees where the SchH, FH, HGH, CDX, UD, ROM, etc. titles are lumped together with conformation titles and placed before the name instead of after the name!). As usual edited entries are shown with a yellow background for easy inspection and there is an Undo button if you make a mistake.
AKC Agility Entry Form, updated and now includes the FAST CLASS and new Agreement. And as before, you can easily fill it up (with the click of a button), edit it, save it, and print it.
Added AKC Rally titles RN, RA, and RE to dictionary.
What's New in WinPed_9.6 (October, 2006)
Create 6- and 7-Generation pedigrees from your collection of pedigrees (with one menu click). It works great if you have a WinPed pedigree library. Here is an exceptional example of intensive line breeding in the 6th and 7th generations on Lance of Fran-Jo (a famous German Shepherd Dog):
Am/Can GV Ch. Lance of Fran-Jo ROM OFA GS-401 (7,6,7,6,7,7,7,7,7,6,6,7 - 7,7,7,7,7,7,6,6,7,5,6,7) , 26.56%
where Lance's genetic contribution (blood contribution) adds up to 26.56%, which is more than what he would have contributed (25%) if his name appeared in the 2nd generation as a grand sire. Note that Lance's name shows up only once in the 5th generation on the Dam's side and that his genetic contribution primarily comes from the 6th and 7th generations on both sire and dam sides.
Explanation: The numbers in parentheses to the left of the dash denote the generations where Lance's name appears on the Sire's side, and those to the right of the dash denote the generations where his name appears on the Dam's side. Note, 6-generations means 6-generations behind the animal (or 127 names in the pedigree) and 7-generations means 7-generations behind the animal (or 255 names in the pedigree).
Print Colorful 6-generation pedigrees on a Single page (Letter-, Legal-, or Tabloid-size paper).
Display, print, or e-mail, 6- and 7-generation pedigrees with Line Breeding results.
Save created 6- and 7-generation pedigrees.
What's New in WinPed_9.5 (February, 2005)
Print Elegant Looking Pedigrees. Both Vertical and Horizontal lines form brackets of solid lines. Horizontal lines automatically extend to bracket short, one word, names whereas vertical lines (as before) are open to allow long names to go in-between.
You can now Preview the Stud Service Contract, Edit it, Print it, Save it separately, and/or export it (with a copy and paste) to WordPad or MSWord. Or, you can just go ahead and print it without previewing it. And, as before, you can include a picture of your animal or of your logo, with the contract.
UKC Entry Form has been completely redone from the ground up, to conform to the latest release 02-05.
The Reminder Calendar, has been revamped considerably: 1) Now you can double click on any of the 22 message boxes (or press F1) to open a large editing box. To close it, press F1, or <Esc>, or double click it. Use the editing box to paste long announcements or a series of events that you may have received in an e-mail or you got from the Internet, or use it to enter a long 'To Do' list. 2) Click on a 'Start Date' which may be Mating Date, Beginning of Heat Date, Vaccination Date, or any other special date, then enter the number of days following that special date (e.g. 63 days for gestation period), and the program will calculate and highlight the corresponding date on the calendar. Enter your reminder message for that future date in any of the text boxes. 3) Print a particular reminder or print them all. 4) Number of characters per message box was increased from 300 to 2000 characters. 5) Added a new Help message that can be printed instantly.
The short cut Alt+<Enter> (for filling in info of ancestors already present in the pedigree you are working on) no longer includes an automatic change to Upper and Lower Case to avoid applying that feature to titles that are not in the WinPed dictionary or to titles that are not properly entered with no spaces (e.g. ,ROM,OFA, which may be replaced by,rom,ofa. Of course you could easily edit such entries by replacing the "," with a ", " with one click in the Edit menu). Upper-Lower case can be applied (as before) from the Edit menu or by pressing Ctrl+L. Also in 'Fill'em All UP' feature (in the Find/Fill/Search window) you now get an option to keep the entries as they are and not to apply Upper-Lower case, while still automatically coloring champions in Red, etc., and of course Filling Up missing entries in All the Pedigrees with entries that are found in other pedigrees.
The Special Notes text in the Sales Contract has been expanded to several pages.
IABCA (International title) forms have been discontinued.
What's New in WinPed_9.4 (October, 2004)
AKC Show Entry form has been updated and now includes the latest Agreement (9/04).
Ability to load a Header from a Premium List for a single show, or a Header for a Cluster of shows. The Header is the paragraph at the top of an Entry form describing the host club name(s), location(s), date(s), entry fee(s), etc. A Header can be captured as an image (or picture) from the Internet, when the Entry form is displayed as a PDF file using Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5.0 or higher. (Available FREE from Adobe's website at www.Adobe.com). For printed material, the Entry page can be previewed, the Header cropped, scanned, and saved. A Header Picture can be loaded into WinPed's Show Entry form or into WinPed's Agility trial form; and when you print, WinPed will automatically scale the Header Picture and insert it at the top of the printed Entry form. Details on how to create a Header Picture are given in a Help file on the WinPed CD. As usual, your filled Entry form is printed, not just a blank entry form.
In addition to Fill-It Up, Fill'em All Up has been added to the Search and Fill screen. Fill'em All Up, searches All the pedigrees and fills them All up, unless of course certain entries are not found anywhere.
Multiple Find and Replace in all entries on a given pedigree are now possible, with a single click. For example, if you import a pedigree from the Internet or from an e-mail, and the entries included commas that separated titles with no spaces following the commas, as in: CD,CGC,ROM,OFA,CERF can now be changed to CD, CGC, ROM, OFA, CERF with a single click on the Replace button to replace "," with ", " or to replace the commas "," with spaces " ". What good is that? a better look for one thing, and when you click on Change to Upper and lower case, you wouldn't get Cd,cgc,rom,ofa,cerf because there were no spaces after the commas. As before, all entries that were changed become highlighted with a yellow background for easy recognition and an Undo button is available to change things back if you make a mistake. And, if you end up introducing double spaces, because the entries had a mix of no spaces and some spaces, you can find and replace all the double spaces with a single space with a single click on the replace button.
New titles have been added to WinPed's Upper and Lower Case dictionary to keep certain words and titles in upper case (e.g. PAM, GS, RR, MF, HR).
What's New in WinPed_9.3 (March, 2004)
AKC Agility Entry form has been updated and now includes the latest Agreement for Agility Entry Form (9/03).
3-Generation printed pedigree has been redesigned so that now you can print any entry (name and titles, etc.) on one line or on two lines. To print any given entry on two lines, type an extra space at the location where you wish the line to wrap around. The second line can be used for printing registration numbers (e.g. for registering clubs of none-AKC breeds), long list of multiple working degrees, long list of health certifications, or any other suitable purpose. As usual you can include a picture, a watermark, and LineBreeding. And you can print in portrait or landscape orientation. The introduction of an extra space does not affect the LineBreeding computations and does not interfere with the printing of 4- or 5-generation pedigrees.
Color and Quality are now optional to print on the pedigree as part of the Basic info. Several breeds almost always have a certain color and it may be unnecessary to state the color of the animal on the pedigree form. As for Quality, some breeders may not wish to specify the Quality of a very young puppy on the pedigree. If you don't wish to include either or both of these attributes on the pedigree, just do not enter the Color and/or the Quality, in the Basic Info part and uncheck the yellow boxes opposite them.
Similar to Find, entries affected by Replace or Delete (on a displayed pedigree) are now marked with a yellow background when the changes are made. If you make a mistake, an Undo button has been added to restore original entries. This feature was incorporated in later releases of WinPed_9.2.
Better memory management (especially when running Accounting under Windows 98 or Windows Me). This feature was incorporated in later releases of WinPed_9.2.
What's new in WinPed_9.2 (December, 2003)
An easy to use and intuitive Accounting module to keep track of Income and Expenses:
* There are two forms one for Income and one for Expenses. Each form is arranged like a small book with 12 pages (tabs) and each page holds 17 rows. A row is composed of 3 boxes to enter your data: Date, Item, and $Amount.
* You can be as detailed or as brief as you want in your Item descriptions. For long Item entries, press F1 on your Keyboard (or double-click the item box), to display the content in a bigger box for viewing or editing. For clearer organization of the typed material, you can create paragraphs by pressing <Enter> on your keyboard. When done press F1 again (or double-click) to close the Editing box and transfer the text to the Item box. It sure beats scrolling back and forth in the Item box.
* There is a Find text. The program will search all entries (including Dates, Items, and $Amount) and highlight those it found with a Red background. Original color backgrounds are restored by clicking the Clear Red BG button or closing the Find window.
* There is a Calendar to click the dates on and to enter them, in a uniform way, in the date boxes. Click a date, then click the date box. Also, if a date box is empty, and the cursor is in it, then just press <Enter> on your Keyboard and the date on the Calendar will be entered in the blank date box. To change a date either click it to edit it for a simple change, or double-click it to replace it with the one you pre-selected on the Calendar.
* There are 15 Categories with different designated colors. Click on the category radio button and the mouse icon changes to an Arrow and a Question Mark (this sounds familiar to previous users of WinPed) and then click on the $Amount box to color it with the same color as the Category you selected (and thus associate the $Amount with the Category). You fill in the Category names as you go. None are pre-assigned.
* Income and Expenses files are saved separately, and you can create as many as you need, for the present and for future years.
* Program calculates Totals for a Month, a Quarter, and Year to Date. Program also calculates Totals by Category.
* On the Income form, it calculates Projected Income by Category and also a Year-End (and a Month-End) Total Projected Income. The Projected Incomes change as the days go by and as your 'average daily income' changes.
* On the Expenses form you can enter estimated Budgets for the various Categories.
* You can Sort your entries by Date or Group them by Category.
* You may Print your data for a Month, a Quarter, or a Year to Date, in one of two forms: a short form or a Long Form. The Long Form is for long entries in the Item boxes that you may wish to see in detail (with word wrap lines, for as many lines as you may have in the Item box), otherwise if you select the short form then only the 50 characters will be printed and you reduce the amount of printed paper. If the entries do not exceed 50 characters, then the two forms will be about the same.
* You may also print Year to Date sums by Category.
* The program also calculates Net Profit (Loss).
* It is a very flexible program and if you need to use more Entries or more Categories, you can create a new file for what you need and save it separately.
The new AKC Litter Record with 10 entries and now including date of sale, replaces the earlier forms (9 on one page or 12 on two pages).
What's new in WinPed_9.1 (July, 2003)
AKC Agility Entry Form, including a provision to enter and print Jr. Handler information (if applicable).
UKC Entry Form (United Kennel Club), which includes: Conformation, Jr. Handler, Obedience, Agility, and Weight Pulling.
IABCA Show Entry Form and Registration Application Form (International All Breed Canine Association).
A new button was added on the AKC Show/Obedience Entry Form to Enter and Print Jr. Handler information (if applicable).
Added New Titles to the Dictionary (for Upper and Lower case and AutoColor): SOM (Sire of Merit), DOM (Dam of Merit), and LOM (Legion of Merit) for Boxers. HF (Hall of Fame) and PE (Plateau of Excellence) for St. Bernards. And added VH1, VH2, and VH3 (Dutch titles equivalent to SchH1, SchH2, and SchH3), and KNPV (The Koninklijke Nederlandse Politiehond Vereniging, or Royal Dutch Police Dog Association) titles for GSD, Bouvier des Flandres, Rottweilers, and other service-dog breeds.
Changed the built-in macros in F1, F2, F3, ..., keys on the keyboard, to the modern notations SchH1, SchH2, SchH3, IPO1, IPO2, and IPO3, replacing the old notation of SchH I, SchH II, SchH III, etc.
What's new in WinPed_9.0 (March, 2003)
* Five lines of text (or 600 characters, instead of 240 characters) are now available for your Special Notes of additional guarantees or conditions that you may wish to include in the contract.
* Check boxes in the Quality section that describe the quality of the animal being sold were increased to 13 boxes: which in addition to Pet, Showable, or Show, now include: Agility, Companion, Field, Herding, Hunting, Obedience, Protection, Schutzhund, Sledding, and Tracking. Printing anything from the Quality section is completely optional.
* Definitions of Pet, Showable, and Show (and a separate Definition for Limited Registration) are optionally printed on a separate page or on the back of the Contract.
* Selling by Installments can be included in the contract. Features include Total Price, amount of Down Payment, Remaining Balance, Number of Installments for Remaining Balance, and Payment Schedule (Biweekly, Monthly, or Bimonthly, etc.). All necessary calculations are made by WinPed.
* When you save the contract, all selected and unselected check boxes and all filled in information is also saved.
What's new in WinPed_8.9 (January, 2002)
Reminder Calendar: The following new features were added:
Two buttons were added: Mating Date and Whelping Date. Mating Date button just tells you what to do (which is to click on the date the mating occurred, and then to click on the Whelping Date button). When you click on the Whelping Date button, an option is displayed to enter the expected number of gestation days, default is 63 days, i.e. if you just press OK the program will assume 63 days, otherwise it will use the number of days that you enter. Then the program calculates and highlights the expected Whelping Date on the Calendar. Type yourself a Reminder Message. Done!
The maximum number of reminder messages that you can enter is now up to 16 instead of 10. And, as usual, when you start the program, your reminder message will be displayed 10 days before the designated date, and it will continue to be displayed (each time you start the program) until you delete it when it has served its purpose.
A Sort button was added to stack the message entries (i.e., eliminate blank ones) and sort them by date. If you forget to click the Sort button and you exit the Calendar form, the entries are automatically, stacked, sorted, and saved.
A Print button was added to print the Reminder Calendar dates and messages (automatically sorted by date).
A new and more exact method was implemented to calculate and display both the day of the week and the date when the program displays your reminder message (e.g. Monday, January 7, 2002).
What's new in WinPed_8.8 (November, 2001)
AKC Litter Registration Application Form, was completely redesigned (again) to comply with latest AKC requirements (2001). The new Screen display for entering the required information and the printed form(s) replace those introduced in earlier versions (8.6 and 8.5). Using WinPed_8.8, the printed Litter Registration Application forms (two pages, front and backside) are copies of the official AKC version (2001). And, yes, the program calculates the required fees.
AKC Show-Entry Form, updated using the newer style and latest AKC modifications in the Agreement statement (2001).
A New option was added to print pedigrees on certain printers whose "non printing area" is too large, so that they wouldn't chop off part of the Frame or Border. This feature was already included in later releases of WinPed_8.7.
What's new in WinPed_8.7 (October, 1999)
Picture Watermarks are now automatically scaled. If the watermark picture is too large it will be automatically scaled down (reduced in size) to fit the printed pedigree page and if it is too small it is automatically but optionally scaled up, i.e. you will be asked if you wish to enlarge it. Text Watermarks are also scaled up or down, automatically, using 3 different font sizes, instead of one size fits all.
What's new in WinPed_8.6
AKC Litter Registration Application Form, was completely redesigned to comply with latest AKC requirements. The new Screen display for entering the required information and the printed form(s) replace those introduced in WinPed_8.5.

In the screen display of the form, you simply enter the applicable registration fee. Other recent modifications in the printed form are included. Also, separately print AKC instructions for filling out the form and information on Artificial Insemination. (Form was completely redesigned in WinPed_8.6 to comply with AKC requirements, see above).
AKC Show-Entry Form, updated with the latest AKC modifications in Agreement statement.
Sales Contract (new features). Check boxes for Agility, Field Trial, Obedience, and Schutzhund; a check box to print Definition of Limited Registration at the bottom of the contract; doubled the size and the maximum number of characters in the Special Notes text box where you may include other guarantees or limitations (e.g. Limited Registration, or limitations on returning puppies within 48 hours other than for health reasons, etc.); and data entry boxes were made larger and display a larger size font.
Print Pedigrees on A4-size paper (3-, 4-, or 5-generations, portrait or landscape, with frames or with borders, automatically scaled pictures, and watermarks). This is the paper size used in many other parts of the world. WinPed has gone International! (This is in addition to the standard letter-, legal-, and tabloid-size paper used in the USA).
Extract, Cancel, and Undo/Redo Extract button automatically changes from 'Extract' to 'Cancel Extract' to 'Undo/Redo'. Use it in conjunction with Fill-it Up (and with your WinPed database) for some amazing results.
Fill-it Up! Automatically fills up pedigree form with missing ancestral names (including those names, whose pedigrees were not saved separately, but whose partial pedigrees exist in other pedigrees). By successively extracting names in the fifth generation, and using 'Fill-it Up', you can generate 10-, or more, generation pedigrees, and trace back ancestral names and their pedigrees for as many generations (along as many ancestral lines) as you have data for. With Load and Paste, Extract, Undo/Redo, and Fill-it Up, WinPed has reached a new level of flexibility and sophistication! (Fac.toid: a 5-generation pedigree has 63 names, a 10-generation pedigree has 2047 names.)
Save List of Pedigree Files (in any folder) into one file and send that file as an attachment to your e-mail. Or, print it using Print List of Files feature (which was introduced in a previous version).
An Ornamental Default Border replaces the previous default border, and several new borders were added to the border images collection in the Samples folder.
Frames printed in Aqua, Blue, or Red. Black was dropped.
Royal Blue color is now used in printed pedigrees for animals with working titles, ROM, OFA, etc., instead of the Aqua color used in previous versions (this feature was introduced in some late releases of WinPed 8.4).
Help Messages. Line-Breeding Help message was re-written to clarify definitions of In-Breeding, Line-Breeding, Outcrossing, difference between percentage of genetic contribution (Line-Breeding percentages) and probability of inheritance (In-Breeding coefficient(s)). The Average-Line-Breeding figure was dropped. Several new Help messages were added elsewhere in the program.
The utility that converted our old DOS Pedigree files into WinPed files has served its purpose and is no longer part of WinPed. It is available as a separate utility program for those who may still need it.
What's New in WinPed_8.4:
Screen Resolutions. Now, WinPed can be used with screen resolutions ranging from 640x480 pixels (or VGA, which is still popular on some desktops, laptops, and notebooks) all the way to 1280x1064 pixels (and everything else in-between).
Litter Record expanded to include 9 puppies on one page or 12 puppies on two pages (6 and 6). Use either form in higher screen resolutions (800x600 pixels or greater), or use the 12 puppies form (6 and 6) in lower screen resolution (640x480 pixels). What if you get more than 12 puppies? Easy, just start another file, and contact your local TV Station :-).
Show Record is now printed in a nicer format, and comments section expanded even more.
Picture or Logo in Stud Service Contract. Load, view, and optionally print a picture in upper right corner of Stud Service Contract. Picture automatically scaled when printed.
Picture or Logo in Sales Contract. Load, view, and optionally print a picture in upper right corner of Sales Contract. Picture automatically scaled when printed.
More New Titles and Abbreviations were added to WinPed's built-in "Dictionary of words to be kept in Upper Case" when you select Change to Upper and Lower Case in pedigree form. (New abbreviations include: WWKC, GPCA, ARBA, CKC, SKC, UKC, and AKC).
What's New in WinPed_8.3:
Health Records and Expenses. To keep track of vaccinations, eye exams, cropped ears, docked tail, hip and elbow x-rays, screenings (Brucellosis, von Willebrand), and any other Vet. visits. Including dates, comments, and expenses.
CKC Show-Entry Form. Print it blank or filled. Bring-in info from the pedigree with one mouse click. Very high quality output (similar to that of the AKC form in WinPed 8.2).
10-Event Reminder Calendar. Reminder Calendar extended to 10 events (see more details in 8.2 below). Accessible from Main menu and from Health Record window.
New Export Window Features. 1) Export window now includes LineBreeding (in addition to Pedigree, and Business Name). 2) Copy and Paste to word processor (to customize, or to send as an attachment to an e-mail). 3) Copy and Paste to your Web Authoring program. Now with support to MS-FrontPage (97 or 98) and to Netscape Composer (version 4.0).
New Titles and Abbreviations were added to the built-in set of words to be kept in Upper Case when you select Change to Upper and Lower Case (e.g. BPIS (Best Puppy in Show), BPISS (Best Puppy in Specialty Show), BSP (BundesSieger Profung), II, III, CC, ... etc.).
Print List of Files in any folder. This feature was already added to the latest release of WinPed 8.2_M.
What's new in WinPed_8.2:
AKC Show-Entry form. Print it blank or filled. Bring-in info from the pedigree with one mouse click. Very high quality output.
AKC Litter-Record form. To keep track of all necessary information about a litter. Again, bring-in info from the pedigree of the puppies, with one mouse click.
A 5-event reminder Calendar. Very easy to use: Click a date ... type a Message. Message will be displayed 10 days prior to selected date, and will continue to be displayed every time you start WinPed, until you erase it. Set up to 5 messages and dates, no particular order. Calendar works from Year 0 to the Year 9999. None of that 'Year 2000' stuff here. :-) (but do check your hardware for Y2K compatibility).
3 Multi-Line text boxes named 'Records etc.' (and renamed Comments in WinPed_8.3) to keep records of e.g.: Winnings, Health Record (now available separately in WinPed_8.3), Training Progress, or any type of record that you wish to keep a track of. It's like having three, built-in, mini word processors. The 3 multi-line records are saved as part of the pedigree info., they replace the old 3 single-line text boxes for 'Comments, etc.'.
Print Multi-Line 'Comments, etc.' as part of Report, or ... click on 'Print Now' and selectively print one, or all, of them without having to print the whole Report.
Two types of Watermarks: a Text Watermark and a Picture Watermark. Print one or the other at the center of the page (on letter, legal, or tabloid size paper, in portrait or landscape orientation). What's a watermark?, it can be a text (like your Kennel Name) automatically printed in a very light grayish-blue color using a large italic font and creating an elegant background to the printed pedigree, or it can be a faint-color emblem, logo, or picture, on which the pedigree is printed. A Watermark is printed at the same time as the Pedigree, the Border/Frame, and a Picture are printed. Needless to say, printing a watermark, or any of the other features, is optional.
A new tab for 'Breeder' info., under Additional Information, with an on-off checkbox for Breeder/Owner to bring in (or clear) information instantly.
Print-Options window redesigned and now includes a new check box for Watermark and a button to view it prior to printing. Auto-Select checkbox eliminated.
Added items to Show Record window.
Menus redesigned to accommodate new features, and several convenient features added to many windows.
Features added to WinPed from version 7.6 to version 8.1
(Updated October 11, 1997)
What's New in WinPed 7.7:
*** A new menu added for Import/Export:
(i) Import is a new addition in WinPed 7.7 and it allows you to bring into WinPed: 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-Generation Pedigree files, that would have been copied to your word processor (WordPad), using copy and paste, from e-mail or from the World Wide Web (WWW) on the Internet. (Always respect copyright notices and check with the copyright owner.) This feature was much improved later in version 7.8.
(ii) Export now has new features: both portrait and landscape mode, scroll bars, easy access to WordPad, and a nicer font.
*** A new option was added for printing horizontal and vertical lines on a pedigree certificate.
*** A new form for Sales Contracts was added.
*** The Text Colors box (in the lower left corner of the main window) was redesigned and split into two boxes. The AutoColor button is now bigger, a new Chng2Black button was added (instead of being under a menu option) and manual text coloring functions were redesigned.
*** Overall WinPed7.7 is much faster than WinPed7.6, especially in using the File Utility routines where things used to slow down because of long file names when the number of files approached 1000. The display of the long file names is now nearly 20 times faster!, and accordingly the caution message in File Utilities menu, about slow performance (as the number of pedigree files approaches 1000) has been removed.
What's New in WinPed 7.8
*** The Business Name is automatically saved in a special Folder and automatically loaded every time you used the program, so that there will no longer be the annoying message about loading the Business Name file, unless it is an empty file and you did not save it as a default file when prompted to do so the very first time you used the program.
Technical Note: In version 7.9 the path was changed from (C:\Windows\WinPed_Stuff) to a simpler path of C:\WinPed. In either case, you did not have to know that or to type anything special.
*** If you have a lot of files in a folder, then to Open (or to Load and Paste) a file you need not type *KeyName* , just type the KeyName and WinPed will put the *s around the name and find the list of files that contain that KeyName. A KeyName is ANY set of successive characters in the file name you wish to load. If you type *KeyName* then this will still work, and will override WinPeds attempt to save you a few keystrokes. Careful with using only one *.
*** The Simple Stat. fields for titles (like Ch., CDX, etc.) are now all optional so that you can use titles that are more suitable to your breed (for example: JH, ORC, etc.). A set of default titles (Ch., Sel., GV, ROM, VA, and SchH is loaded when you start the program. These titles may be edited and replaced with others, then when the pedigree is saved these titles are saved with it. You can also save these titles as a new set of default titles that will be automatically loaded when you start the program. If you load a pedigree, from an older version of the program, and that pedigree did not contain Simple Stat. titles, then the title boxes will be blank (for that pedigree) until you type something in them. The report that contains the Simple Stat. data now reflects those new titles.
*** In the Simple Stat., a smarter search routine is now used which can differentiate between two titles like CD and CDX or WD and WDX, so that it would not count the CD in CDX twice.
*** You can now import all 3 types of pedigree formats from e-mail, and the WWW including those presented in a Table with several cells (boxes).
*** There is a Spare Screen for Importing pedigrees using copy and paste. It is no longer necessary to import a pedigree that you would have saved as a text file, ... etc., as it was in version 7.7. Importing a pedigree into the Spare Screen is much simpler and more visual in version 7.8
*** You can now print a Frame made of two solid lines, one thick and one thin, in color (Black, Blue, or Red), around the pedigree at the same time as you print the pedigree.
*** Using Upper and Lower Case now detects the presence of commas and parenthesis and work more intelligently. For example: CD, ROM, OFA or (OFA) will now automatically remain in upper case instead of getting Cd, Rom, or (Ofa) etc.
*** Several Sporting, Herding, and Agility titles were added so that they are automatically capitalized (using Upper and Lower Case) and appropriately colored (using AutoColor).
*** Accessing Borders is now through the Print menu, instead of using a separate menu. A Borders and Exit Borders button was added to the Print 'Window'.
What's New in Version 7.9:
*** Option to Print 3-Generations has been added to already existing 4- and 5-Generations, mainly to accommodate the printing of Pictures
*** Loading, viewing and printing of Pictures is now possible. Picture are printed with 3- or 4-Generations in portrait or landscape orientation (on letter, legal, or tabloid size paper). Pictures are automatically sized, automatically located on paper, and automatically printed at the same time as the pedigree is printed.
*** More features were added to the Import (or Spare) Screen, to accommodate importing 4 different types of pedigree formats from e-mail, the Internet, the www, or a word processor. And, it is still as simple as copy and paste.
*** A new button was added, on the Print window, for quick access to edit and change color of Business Name data.
*** The Print window was redesigned, to accommodate a check box to print Picture, and all sorts of precautions and messages were added to minimize the possibility of printing a picture where it should not be done (e.g. Attempting to print picture and 5-generations, Business name, Basic Info., LineBreeding, and certification, on letter size paper, in landscape orientation. There is just not enough space to print all this while maintaining legibility of text and picture.) Also more pleasing colors were used in the Print window.
*** The following file formats for a picture are acceptable: GIF, JPG, BMP, and several others. PCX file formats cannot be loaded at this time. If you have some it should be easy to convert them to GIF or JPG using a program like PaintShop Pro version 4.12 by JASC.
*** New visual tools were added under the View menu where, at a glance, you can see the distribution of repeated names in a 5-Generation pedigree form, displayed on a single screen. This distribution is a visual measure of line breeding and inbreeding. As if you got a marker pen and colored all the repeated name entries. You may also see the distribution of OFA animals, or the distribution of any word(s) you wish to test for, like titles: Ch., SchH, ROM, JH, AO, WDX, or a Name, .. anything you can think of. Entries that contain the word(s) you search for turn red, whereas the other entries remain white.
*** As mentioned earlier, the special utility screen that allowed copying, renaming, moving, deleting, etc. file names is no longer a part of WinPed_7.9 because all it offered can be accomplished by using the Open-file dialog box (thats the window that you see when you select Open from the File menu). Just click on a file name (or on a folder name), keep the mouse pointer on the name and click right mouse button. Now select: copy, cut, rename, delete, etc. If you select copy or cut, then you can select a different folder click right mouse button again and now use paste, to paste it in this other folder. To create a new folder, click on the new folder icon on the Open-file dialog box, a folder icon will be created and its name will be New Folder. Type the new name for this new folder.
Note: To cut, copy, etc., several files or folders in one sweep (i.e. extended selections, using the Ctrl- or Shift-key) use Windows Explorer.
Whats New in Version 8.0:
*** A Stud Service Contract has been added.
*** A Show Record Form has been added, which includes Show name, location, handlers name, judges name, class entered, placing, etc. and Also includes a multi-line text box for judges comments and/or your comments. Expenses for that show, entry fee, handler fee, transportation, etc.
*** Distribution of Repeated Names (which gives a visual representation of the amount of inbreeding and line breeding present on a 5 generation pedigree chart), and you can also print this chart.
*** Distribution of Anything in a loaded pedigree: name, title, working title, . . . , a visual representation of anything you wish to see in a 5 generation Pedigree. Like using a marker pen to highlight all the dogs that are OFA, or ROM, or Ch., . etc.
*** Several improvements were made in printing pedigrees that include a picture.
Whats New in Version 8.1:
*** Now you can load a picture or clip art, in any of the acceptable file formats (see above), and use it to create a decorative border and print it at the same time as you print the pedigree. The old borders were eliminated from the program, because they required a separate printing pass. Now the choices for a border pattern are infinite.
*** The Print window was redesigned to accommodate the new Border options.
