'S'ubtotal displays and clears the subtotal. 'T'otal displays the sum of previous subtotals and clears the total. The 'TS' operator displays the total without clearing it. 3) New Tape menu Clear selection that clears the lines from a tape, while retaining the setup and configuration options. 4) A problem with Automatic Decimal placement in numbers has been fixed. Use the 'D'ecimal selection on the Setup menu to turn on the automatic decimal feature. 5) A problem with line value references has been fixed. Line values allow you to use the value from another line. For example, L17 refers to the value of line 17. 6) Performance improvements, including better use of background recalculation. 7) The Help screens have been expanded and reorganized with more examples and better assistance for new users. 8) The demonstration tapes (DEMO1, DEMO2, DEMO3) have been modified to use the new features in this release. 9) The program now remembers whether the Edit Window in the tape is open when you move between the tape and the menu. 10) The print file name for writing a report to a file can be changed at the point of starting the report, rather than having to go to the Report menu Options Setup selection first. 11) The GPM (gross profit margin) function now works for mark downs (with a negative percentage), as well as for mark ups.
