Re: Customisation of Buttons Missing Sorting Function

That is as I feared, based on the change report for the build. I'll opt to continue using AB 2013 Build 23, as I have been.

Re: Customisation of Buttons Missing Sorting Function

This and many other important features were removed as part of the implementation of the new UI. We've been told that it will be reinstated in a future build.

Actually, the release of the Alpha 1 pre-dates the release of Build 107 by four months (please see the date of the original post). So far, there has been no newer release than AB 2013 build 107.

Re: Drag and drop to open new tab no longer works in Faceboo

Update: I don't know why I didn't try this sooner, but I just noticed that Ctrl+drag does work in Facebook to open the link in a new tab. :thumbup: :D Just tried this, but without success. Although Ctrl+drag DID give me the correct cursor (like a little rectangle with something in it [a dot? a plus...

Re: sidebar gone

Weird, no? I hate to sound jaded but, no, nothing is too weird for AB 2013 alpha/beta/build 100 series, where the functions you loved best about AB have now been deemed too passe' to support, in deference to a layout or UI nobody asked for. If somebody could come up with a way I could move my 105 a...

Re: AutoFill edit doesn't work

I don't know when this function broke, but I have the same problem in AB 2013 build 23. Basically, the only way to edit or modify an AutoFill is to create a new one (rather than edit or copy the old) with the new info. I have 105 AutoFills, most of which I created years ago, and (of course) over tho...

Re: The most annoying changes and omissions in build 107

I totally agree with the reservations from build 107. I really appreciate Anderson for the enormous project he has been single handed creating over the years. But, usually changes in the functions of a program or its UI come as a response to users suggestions/requests/complaints. I do not recall an...

Re: Drag and drop to open new tab no longer works in Faceboo

It hasn't worked for a while, and I'm pretty sure that it is Facebook-specific rather than AB-specific. It stopped working concurrent with an upgrade to Facebook about ... 6 months ago, maybe? My take is that Facebook has redefined all "drag & drop" actions to be, instead, "drag & drop into the upda...

Re: Search "g data" don't give me a correct result

If I understand correctly, lolo1 wants to use NON-Avant Google to search for (exactly) "g data". However, when lolo1 puts "g data" in the address bar, Avant interprets that phrase as "use Avant Google to search for 'data'". Lolo1 doesn't want to search for "data" alone, and also doesn't want Avant t...

Re: Print Preview Button - GONE

There was Copy but no Paste. why not use ctrl+C and Ctrl+V? We've had this discussion before over the years: Some people are mousers and some people are keyboardists (and sometimes physical disability determines which you'll be). For this reason, it's never a good idea to have ONLY a keyboard metho...

Re: What happened to Search within site?

The last version which has this feature is 2013 build 23. This, I just don't understand. I can understand deciding a former function/tool is deemed too obscure to include on the default, fresh-install toolbars, so that function/tool is made available only in the Customize Toolbar list (so that a us...

I'm having the same problem (in AB 2013 build 23): The Windows "Save As" location dialog pops up in a peculiar way wherein the title bar of the dialog is visible IN FRONT OF the AB bars at the top of my screen, but the majority of the dialog is hidden behind the content pane of AB.

Re: Coming soon... ?

I, too, hope there's a new CORRECTED version or build to install soon. I stopped updating once I hit AB 2013 Ultimate build 23, but even that installation is getting flakier the longer I use it (lilac screen, bad zoom handling, bad tab handling, "avantbridge" pop-ups, etc., etc., ad nauseum).

I believe xiaobing said that highlight & "search on this page" had been combined into one toolbar button.

Re: Secure Site Icon

I believe that "green blur" (or, more specifically, the web address preceded by an icon on a green background, & with "https://" in green font) *IS* the only way one can tell they're on a secure page, now.

After taking a quick look at Orion, I would seriously consider jumping to it *IF* I was sure that it could import my Avant-specific Bookmarks and--much more importantly--Autofills.
