1. Event List: Promotions Tab Feature

There is a new feature added to the Promotions Tab that will more clearly show the sales promotions that, while active, cannot be used for the performance because the price codes they exclude do not allow them to be used.

The ‘Sel’ Column now shows 4 icons:

  • Green Check - means that the promotion is enabled for all the selected performances
  • Red X - means that the promotion is disabled for all the selected performances
  • Yellow Circle - means that the promotion is enabled for at least one of the selected performances, but not all
  • Grey Circle - means that the promotion is enabled for at least one of the selected performances (but not all) AND there is at least one performance where the sales promotion cannot be used because the price codes it is valid for are not enabled.

2. Printing Labels Down the Page

Mailing Labels can now be printed down the page (then across) in addition to the default across the page (then down). This may help those who find it easier to work down the label page when transferring them to envelopes. Refer to the Label Style and Position section on the help page.

3. 32 Bit Support Ends September 15, 2019

Most venues are using 64 bit and have been transitioning over the past year. Thank you to all who have done so. There are a few workstations till running 32 bit which will see a more insistent message that Sept 15, 2019 is the final date that 32 bit will be supported.

After Sept 15, 2019, if you are still using 32 bit Theatre Manager, it will still continue to work for the foreseeable future. When Apple releases Catalina (OSX 10.15), they will no longer support 32 bit after a 15 year transition - and that will simply cause 32 bit TM not to run if you upgrade your Mac. We suggest updating to High Sierra or Mojave before the release date if you still need to run 32 bit.

What the Sept 15, 2019 release date signifies is that all new features will be placed into the 64 bit version of TM and they cannot be carried back to the 32 bit version due to technology limitations. We’ll do our best to make sure that 32 bit still runs, but there will be no big fixes or guarantees.
