  • InqScribe 2.5.0.299 Beta Update

    Posted on October 16th, 2020 Alex No comments

    We’ve just released another update to our ongoing 2.5 Beta for macOS! This release includes further refinements and bug fixes. Here’s what’s new:

    • Use of emoji no longer causes inaccurate Find/Replace results, timecode coloring, or timecode selection.
    • XML exports do a better job filtering out invalid XML characters.
    • Better auto-deactivation of USB devices that aren’t really input devices.
    • Better window placement in certain multiple-monitor configurations.
    • Rapid play rate changes no longer lead to actual and reported play rate getting out of sync.
    • Minor UI improvements and bug fixes.

    Download the update from our website here. Or, update your existing 2.5 Beta by opening the app and selecting “InqScribe > Check for Updates.”

  • InqScribe 2.5.0.289 Beta Update Available Now for macOS!

    Posted on January 28th, 2020 Alex No comments

    A new version of our InqScribe 2.5 beta is now available for macOS. As you may already know, version 2.5 is an upcoming update that brings a new HD interface, an improved media engine, and full Catalina support. Both this public beta and the soon-to-come official release will be free to current InqScribe license holders (more detailed information about the 2.5 beta here).

    This new 2.5.0.289 beta update is mostly concerned with bug fixes and small tweaks. Here’s what’s new:

    • Fixed a bug where InqScribe wasn’t saving to external hard drives
    • You can now click the volume “speaker” icon to mute and unmute audio
    • “Mute” has been added as a shortcut command
    • “Skip Forward” is another new shortcut command– it lets you move the current play position ahead by a specified number of seconds

    If you’re already using the 2.5 beta, you can get the new update by selecting “InqScribe > Check for Updates” within the app. If you’re new to the 2.5 beta, download it beta fresh from inqscribe.com/download#versions. Windows users, hold tight! The 2.5 Windows build is coming soon.

    For more information about the 2.5 beta, read our initial release post here. If you encounter any issues with the beta, or if you have any questions, contact us at support@inqscribe.com.

  • Announcement: InqScribe 2.5 Coming Soon!

    Posted on August 27th, 2019 Alex No comments

    If you’re on a Mac, you’re probably wondering how InqScribe will handle the release of Catalina (macOS 10.15). After all, InqScribe 2.2.4 is a 32-bit app, and Catalina phases out support for 32-bit apps.

    We’ve got you covered!

    Yes, we are currently preparing a new release, InqScribe v2.5, due out next month as a free update. This 64-bit version is focused mainly on Catalina compatibility and bug fixes.

    A robust v3 release, which will be packed with a host of new features, is still in the works. But since v3 is not ready yet, we’re putting out v2.5 to bridge the gap. With that said, v2.5 is not without some significant refinements of its own.

    We’ll announce the release on this blog and in our newsletter once it lands. To sign up for our newsletter, simply fill out the form here. Interested in joining our beta-testing group? Send a note to support@inqscribe.com.
