EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4 is an update to EXP 5.1 that is available free of charge to owners of EXP 5.1. The requirements for installing this update are as follows:
- EXP 5.1 must already be installed on the computer.
EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4 replaces the following files in an EXP 5.1 installation:
- You do not need to install any earlier service packs before installing Service Pack 4.
- Files saved by EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4 are compatible with earlier releases of EXP 5.1.
- If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows may display a security warning when you run the downloaded file. It is safe to click the Run button to proceed.
Changes from EXP 5.1 Service Pack 3 to EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4
- After EXP 5.1 was released, Microsoft released a security update for Windows XP that altered the way Windows processed Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) graphics. Because of this
change, versions of EXP 5.1 prior to Service Pack 4 are unable to print EPS graphics correctly. Only the EPS preview image, if any, is printed. EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4 supports
the new behavior of Windows and restores the ability to print EPS graphics. Note that this fix to EXP only applies to newly imported EPS graphics. If you have existing documents
that contain EPS graphics, you need to re-import those graphics. For information on how to do this quickly for multiple graphics, refer to the section in the EXP User's Guide
titled "Using Linked Graphics".
- Versions of EXP 5.1 prior to Service Pack 4 contain a very minor scaling problem when rendering an EMF graphic. The rightmost and bottommost
coordinates in the EMF image are not displayed. Service Pack 4 for EXP 5.1 corrects this problem.
- All versions of EXP for Windows prior to EXP 5.1 Service Pack 4 can update at most 4,096 AutoNum codes per document. Service Pack 4 for EXP 5.1 raises this limit by a factor
of sixteen to 65,536 codes per document. Note that this change does not affect the WXP file format. A document containing more than 4,096 AutoNum codes can still be opened with
earlier versions of EXP 5.1.
Changes from EXP 5.1 Service Pack 2 to EXP 5.1 Service Pack 3
- Versions of EXP 5.1 prior to Service Pack 3 may exit Print Preview mode if the document contains Enhanced Metafile (EMF) graphics. Under certain circumstances, Windows
incorrectly reports to EXP that it was unable to display an EMF graphic when in fact the graphic was displayed properly. EXP 5.1 Service Pack 3 ignores the erroneous error report
and remains in Print Preview mode.
Changes from EXP 126.96.36.199 to EXP 5.1 Service Pack 2
- Versions of EXP prior to EXP 5.1 Service Pack 2 contain numerical inaccuracies in the logic that displays tick marks and default tab stop positions on the ruler. In certain
cases, tick marks or default tab stop positions are not displayed in exactly the correct locations. These inaccuracies have been corrected in EXP 5.1 Service Pack 2.
- EXP now supports GIF graphics files.
- EXP now supports TIFF graphics files that use LZW compression.
- EXP now enables you to change the zoom level using the mouse wheel. If you hold down the Control key while rotating the mouse wheel, you can increase or decrease the current
document's zoom level.
- EXP now supports the mouse wheel in Print Preview. By rotating the mouse wheel, you can move to the next or previous page.
Changes from EXP 5.1 to EXP 188.8.131.52
- EXP 5.1 contains a bug in the logic that displays control codes (Show Codes), page numbers, automatic numbers, and footnote marks. This bug is fixed as of EXP 184.108.40.206.
- In EXP 5.1, there is a problem with the "Repair Installation" option for EXP in Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs dialog box. If the EXP51.exe file gets repaired, the
user's authorization code is removed from the system. This problem is fixed as of EXP 220.127.116.11.
- The LaTeX converter in versions of EXP prior to 18.104.22.168 contains logic that forces paragraphs tagged as "Normal", "Heading", or "Declaration" to structure level 1 (the
outermost structure level). As of version 22.214.171.124, that logic has been removed. EXP now respects the user's setting of structure level in all cases.
