  • A new major release of Attribute Changer is available with some cool new features.

    Under the hood, large parts of Attribute Changer have been rewritten. While it’s not visible for the end user, it’s important to do code cleanup and rewrite from time to time. You won’t either live 20 years in your house without doing housekeeping and renovation work.

  • Attribute Changer celebrates its 20 year birthday.

    Initially, Attribute Changer was developed for personal use, but some friends convinced me to share it with the Internet community and I did not expect such a success over the years. Back in 1999, peaks of 50 monthly downloads were counted. Nowadays, an average of 16.200 downloads is counted per month from this site only.

    Ever wanted to have an idea what changed in Attribute Changer since version 1.0? Please have a look at the version history.

    Many thanks to you all! Without your support, Attribute Changer would not have reached this milestone.

  • I’m pleased to announce the availability of Attribute Changer 9.10. This version features a significant technical change that will impact all future releases of Attribute Changer.

    In fact, Attribute Changer was developed since the beginning in Delphi, but the direction taken by the new owner of this product makes it no more an option for the development of Attribute Changer.

    Version 9.10 is now developed using Lazarus/Freepascal and so will be all further releases. The shell extension has been converted from C++ to Freepascal.

    This release includes the following fixes and enhancements:

    · Option to reset user settings to default values
    · Context menu entry to paste selected date/time to all other date/time fields
    · Localized button captions in dialog boxes
    · ‘Paste Attributes’ button action now includes ‘Change name’ listbox
    · Log export now autogenerates filenames with date and time stamp
    · Warning dialog boxes now use localized button captions
    · More detailed messages for invalid user entries in input fields
    · Updated user guide

    With the new context menu entries, you are able to copy the selected date, time or both values and paste them to all other date or time fields.

    It may happen that a misconfiguration has been done and you’re unable to figure out what happened. The Reset button deletes all configuration data and Attribute Changer will load default values.

    I hope you enjoy this release as much as I did during development. Many thanks to all the beta testers for their valuable feedback, it’s much appreciated.
