What's new / updated / fixed ?


* Documents : (NEW) Overhaul MS-Word document and application connection methods to deal with hidden and multiple instances of MS-Word.
* Documents : (NEW) Add ability to select the MS-Word document to communicate with when multiple documents are open (e.g. "fill doc" when multiple are open, PP asks "which one?").
* Documents : (NEW) Option to bring Word to front when PP is used to open a Word document (default = yes).


* FIX : Reports - Ensure "left aligned" report items respect left margin position on [estate summary], [estate overview], [accrued income] and [balance sheet] reports when left margin set to small width.
* FIX : Laserform - where a previously saved LFM (XFD) is re-opened and re-filled, sometimes "save to document history" would not execute. Changed to use ActiveDocument.SaveAs() method rather than CurrentRingFormDocument.SaveAs().
* FIX : Laserform - add IRISLFM_COMConnected when calling IRISLFMFormsHasActiveDocument() method in case LFM object has not been initialised.
* FIX : If switching between an active matter and new but un-activated matter, ensure ClearMatterNames() called so that toolbars disable certain elements correctly.
* FIX : Title of "Dr" was missing from drop-down list in estate matter list browser. Free-typing of the title was possible, however.


* Optimise : When first opening main form and last top/left position is used do a sanity check that the form isn't going to be positioned outside the current monitor viewport. If so, open at top-left?


* UI : (NEW) Split path and filename in MRU document list under "FILE..Documents" for easier viewing.
