MarcEdit 5.1 update

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

Couple of quick changes. 

  1. Delete Fields – you can delete multiple fields using “xâ€? syntax, where the ‘x’ is no longer case sensitive.  For example:
    a) 900 – deletes the 900 field
    b) 90x – deletes fields 900, 901, 902, 903, etc.
    c) 9xX – deletes fields 900, 901, 902, 903…910, 911…920, 921, etc.
    Originally, x’s had be be lower case.  I’ve modified the code so that this is no longer case sensitive.
  2. Edit Subfield Function:  When working with Control fields (00x fields) – MarcEdit use to require data in the Position element.  If the position element is empty, the program will do a usual find/replace – including prepending and concating data.
  3. MarcEdit Preview Function (Bug Fix):  If a user loads a MARC file directly into the MarcEditor – the program would lose the temp file – so if you clicked on the link to load the entire file into the MarcEdit, it would get lost.  This only occurred when users opened a .mrc (MARC) file directly into the MarcEditor.  In all other contexts, the preview link works as documented.

If either of these affect your workflow, you can download the update here: MarcEdit_Setup.msi
