WordQ Updates


Windows

4.1.8 - Fixes several issues with Word 2016, and this version will also allow any pre-installed WiViK with pre-installed WordQ2 to use this version of WordQ. (The WiViK-WordQ4 tool is now part of the WordQ4 install, so it no longer needs to be run separately.) Also includes French dictionaries that incorporate the new spelling rules.

Mac

4.2.1 - Will automatically detect and enable Enhanced Accessibility mode on Pages and Keynote apps. Also fixed a previous bug that WordQ was not able to exclusively predict user-added words.

Special notes for macOS 12.12(Sierra)+ users. Apple has tightened the security control of the recent OS, As a result, the following settings which could be done automatically will require manual work by the user in order to make WordQ fully functional:

- In the new macOS Sierra, the Keyboard Input menu (usually located at the upper-right corner of the screen) will not be automatically enabled, making WordQ word prediction not working. User has to manually enable it once after the initial installation, and it will stay enabled for future. If not, WordQ will be able to detect (but can't fix) this situation and display an instruction about how to manually enable WordQ IME. (e.g.: System Preferences > Language & Region > Keyboard Preferences... > Input Sources; make sure that the 'Show input menu in menu bar' check box is checked).

- Accessibility privilege is no longer automatically grant, although WordQ.app is properly code-signed. However, WordQ will be able to detect this situation and prompt user to manually do it.

- If a dmg package contains only a simple non-install utility (for example: WordQ demo extender WDQ420170901.dmg) and it is downloaded from Web, Sierra will put it in quarantine. When running such a quarantined utility, althought it is properly code-signed, Sierra will try to prevent it from being launched by double click. The work around is to right click on the item and select 'Open' on the pop-up menu.
