  1. Hi,
    New to DT. I’ve installed version 2.0.5 overwriting 2.0.4 (Mac El Capitan) dragging the mounted dmg to the applications folder and choosing “Replace”, as suggested here. When opening 2.0.5 all “preferences” parameters are the same as in v 2.0.4 where some of the core options were modified. Is this correct or did I fail to remove configuration files in some other system or library folder? Did I have to uninstall or delete v2.0.4 first?
    Thank you.

  2. Hi there,
    thank you very much for this great software. I use it very often. But after the last dist.-upgrade in my “siduction”-linux-os I don’t know, where does ver. 2.0.5-2+b1 store the jpgs after developping? (if it really stores them at all?) And how can I make the Letters smaller?
    Thank you for every hint

  3. Cool. A good thing just keeps getting better.

    One feature that may be useful would be to be able to reset the exposure and black point independently by double-clicking in the left or right field of the histogram, respectively.

    Just keep up the good work. Much appreciated!
