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
- 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
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.
