TOPIC: Home Inspector Pro 5.6.7 for Windows Release

Home Inspector Pro 5.6.7 for Windows Release 9 months 1 week ago #66152

Home Inspector Pro 5.6.7 for Windows is ready for the public! The Mac version will be ready soon. This is a MASSIVE update for HIP users. Other software would call this a full version paid upgrade, but not us!

Note that HIP is now a 64 bit only program. We made the decision to no longer support old 32 bit machines as it was holding us back more and more on new features. If you're running an old 32 bit machine, it's time to upgrade. 64 bit machines have been out for more than a decade now.

I'll be posting new videos here and under Tutorials on the site showing off new features.

You can download 5.6.7 by logging into the site and going to Downloads or just click:

www.HomeInspectorPro.com/dmdocu…/HomeInspectorPro.exe

Tons of new cover page designs added to the Home Inspector Pro/Cover Page Layouts folder. Test them out from the cover page designer using the import feature!

Added the ability to add icons to the next of each section header. Use Report Settings->Section Colors & Print Order to add icons up to 200x200 (we recommend 100x100).

Added an image icon overlay feature. You can now add icons with a single click to denote issues such as safety, electrical, maintenance, etc, which will directly overlay onto a photo.

Rating icons have been added. Instead of a boring checkbox to note that something is a safety issue, not accessible, etc, you can now use a good looking icon to get your point across!

Option added to save PDF files directly to the template.

Option added on PDFs to ignore margins. Previously PDFs inserted within the report were shrunk to 90%. This ensured there was no conflict with content in the margins (page numbers, company name/address, etc) but it meant things were shrunk a little. The new option inserts the PDF at 100% which looks better, but assumes you have made sure the PDF content will not conflict with report margins. Set this under Edit Documents->PDFs.

The ability to add photos to the report and submit directly to RecallChek has been added. First drop down box on a photo is the appliance type. Enter the brand in the second.

Old spellcheck method removed and replaced with a new spellcheck and grammarcheck!

New option added to remove borders around the summary page items.

Added a new option to Report Upload to ISN: Mark Complete. If you do not mark a report upload complete you will still be able to upload other reports or repair list later. This is useful when you have several report types on a single properly.

Photos are now allowed to be placed into the summary even if there's no summary narratives selected for that particular item.

Transparent color option added to page borders.

Transparent color option added to header background color.

License information added to bottom of Company Information screen to see license type, expiration date, etc, at a glance.

New options added under Edit->Company Information to quickly add/remove licenses.

Variable drop down box has been added into Add/Edit Text on Cover Page Designer.

Template listing in Open/Save Template change to be case insensitive (capitalization doesn't matter).

Caption field is much longer allow guys to see more text at a glance.

Sped up saving of inspections on Mobile Sync tab.

A recent Mac OS update caused images to batch import in a random order. This works around that issue to ensure they're imported in alpha order.

More descriptive messages added if there's an issue generating a report.

New folder created when opening new templates to avoid possible conflicts.

Improvements to keep tooltips on narratives out of the way.

Cleanup tool tip text

Fixed cut off icons on Photo Panel

Fixed issue where if there was no item description text it would be replaced with a single space when downloading

Edit Template window would sometimes require 2 clicks instead of 1 to select a section.

Edit Template was auto closing after adding new items. Will now stay open until actually closed.

When downloading mobile inspections that had no description text under each item and extra space was added. This has been removed.

Removed extra period added when section number is turned off but item numbering is on.

Fixed a bug causing issues with Cover Page Designer if no date was set on the inspection.

Fixed Bold font setting not saving under Cover Page Designer.

Fixed an issue with renaming lists when the list being renamed was a subset of another list name (i.e. rooms is contained within the name bathrooms).

Fixed an issue with special characters being inserted into Photo Captions when an apostrophe was in the caption text.

Search color setting selected under Application setting was not saving.

PDF's being added to inspections were improperly being linked to the template as well. Corrected now so they are only saving to where you want them to save.

When downloading, do I rewrite the old HomeInspectorPro.exe file in ProgramFiles[x86] HIP folder ? What about the HomeInspectorPro5.exe that is also in the HIP folder, should that be deleted?

When trying to download Home Inspector Pro 5.6.7 for Windows, I get an "insufficient permission error" and the download is canceled.
Is it my settings on the computer, or something to do with the HIP site?
Thanks
