EpicTable 1.3.5 is available now via http://www.epictable.com/download.
Based on feedback from a new customer, I’ve addressed a couple issues with sharing/unsharing maps and tabletops and the interaction of that with the two ways of opening a map or tabletop: “Open (Shared)” and “Open (Private)”
Inconsistencies in Sharing / Unsharing Maps and Tabletops
Ensures that when you open a map or tabletop as Shared, it will be shared with all participants. Likewise, if you open the map or tabletop as Private, it will unshare it if necessary.
This release is a free update and is backward compatible with earlier versions of EpicTable. To install the patch, simply download the installer from http://www.epictable.com/download and run it. You can install it right over top of your existing installation.

EpicTable 1.3 is available for download. This is a free upgrade for all licensed EpicTable users, and it’s completely backwards compatible with 1.2.
Those of you who visited us at Gen Con already got to see the new features in this release. (And for you guys who bought EpicTable at Gen Con, this release is slightly updated from the one you have, so you’ll want to update when you get a chance.)
You can simply install this version over top of your existing one. Or if you’re ultra-cautious, you can install it side-by-side with your existing EpicTable.
Go ahead and download the latest version of EpicTable while you read about the changes.
Free the Tabs!
The primary focus of this release was letting you move tabs. Reorder them—which was a longstanding request—and more importantly, undock them and allow them to be dragged to a secondary display. This feature lets you drag any map or tabletop to a secondary display, either for your own use or for the players’ use. Using this capability, you can put a map on a big screen TV or a projector.
Dragging tabs around is pretty cool, but Player View unlocks a key scenario—using fog of war and putting the player’s view on a big screen or projector while you sit behind your laptop screen with the GM view. Now, you can do just that.
A secondary focus of this release was making map and tabletop tabs more useful and their associated menus less confusing. One thing that’s been a bit confusing is that maps and tabletops are basically the same thing, at some level. You can put things on them, move things around on them, fog of war and grids work on both of them, and so on. However, the ribbon separated them because I’ve always thought of maps and tabletops as distinct concepts. I still do, but having some options under “Maps” and some options under “Tabletops” was misleading and confusing, and hid a lot of power from you unless you were adventurous enough to try map options on tabletops and vice-versa. In this new version, the “Maps” and “Tabletops” ribbon pages are consolidated and actions and settings common to both are extracted into their own tabs.
There are a handful of bug fixes in 1.3 as well. For a full list of changes, check out the What’s New page.
