The new Cashculator 1.2.2 adds support for switching databases which are located in different folders. This allows using multiple copies of Cashculator on different Macs and share the same database, for example, with the famous Dropbox service.
This also opens the possibility to have multiple Cashculator databases and switch between them. For example, you might want to split your business and personal databases, if you share the business database.
To switch to another existing database, in Cashculator’s preferences you change the database location like previously. But now, if the selected folder already contains a database, in additional to “Cancel” and “Overwrite” commands, you have a new option: “Use existing database”. If you click it, Cashculator will immediately restart itself with the database in the selected folder.
Other changes in the release include:
- NEW: Database backups are now always saved in subfolder of the folder where your database is and not always in “/Library/Application Support/cashculator/Backups”. In conjunction with the ability to to load different databases from different folders, you’ll have separate backups for each database. Also, this allows you to better control the backup process of your database backups and in security aspect, if you keep your Cashculator database in a secured volume.
- NEW: Added context menu to scenarios. Now you can right click on a scenario to access common function.
- BUG FIX: negative numbers can now be entered in reconcile table’s starting balances.
