Who doesn’t want a larger portion?

Unfortunately, the recent release of Movable Type 3.31 broke Icon-o-matic. Fortunately, I’ve updated it!

Don’t be misled, though, this is as much a maintenance release as it is a feature release. Icon-o-matic 2.08 has a new feature for those of us running MT 3.31:

  • the Show & Hide option. Show & Hide is just a simple link and an easy way to get the Icon-o-matic palette out of the way. (Sometimes, when I’m concentrating on writing, I find it a bit disruptive to have all those flashy colors hanging around—this cures it.)
  • Additionally, the palette works a little more intelligently, expanding as necessary to fill the screen when the right-hand mode is used. This has the effect of being a bit more useful if you use Icon-o-matic for larger images.

Please note that Icon-o-matic 2.08 will only work with MT 3.31. Users of MT 3.2 should try Icon-o-matic 2.06 (though it doesn’t include the new Show & Hide feature).

If you’ve already purchased Icon-o-matic you can get version 2.08 by redownloading from the link you received in the purchase e-mail. (Alternatively, e-mail Dan for help.) If you haven’t yet, you can purchase Icon-o-matic for only $10. (Versions 2.08 and 2.06 are included.)
