Chartsmith Enhances Keynote Integration, Expands AppleScript Support

Reston, Virginia – April 16, 2003 – Blacksmith announced today, the
immediate availability of Chartsmith v1.2.1. This release of the popular
charting and graphing application for Mac OS X provides enhanced Keynote
integration, expanded AppleScript support, along with several data parsing
and user interface enhancements.

Chartsmith v1.2.1 includes enhanced support for Apple’s Keynote. Now when
users request a Keynote document export from Chartsmith, they can also
choose a theme from a list of all installed Keynote themes. Additionally,
users may also elect to include their Chartsmith chart notes as Keynote
slide notes.

This release of Chartsmith expands the functionality provided to
AppleScript users. Chartsmith’s AppleScript dictionary has been updated to
provide commands which support bulk data loads and license detection.
License detection allows AppleScript developers to detect if Chartsmith is
running in demo mode where image export is not allowed. Charts created
through the Applescript can be viewed directly in Chartsmith even if
Chartsmith is running in demo mode.

Also included in this release of Chartsmith are improved interface
controls, better data parsing, and enhanced axis and grid labeling. Chart
borders now have color control. Axis titles and tick labels each have
position controls and currency symbols =A3, =A4 and =A5 are now supported fo=
both data parsing and axis labeling.
