Main differences between version 1.2 and 1.20h

(Windows version only) - Doing a Horizontal or Vertical Split could cause a GPF on some computers.

(Windows version only) - The Right Mouse Button can now be used to select a piece or a point (or with the Shift key a group of pieces or points) without danger of causing movement of the selection.

(Macintosh version only) - If no printer driver is selected, New Sloper could cause a type 4 crash (div by zero).

(Windows version only) - If there were more than 99 pieces in a pattern, Select Piece caused a General Protection Fault.

(Windows version only) - Closing the last window and then opening a new one sometimes produced a GPF, but only on some computers.

(Windows version only) - Long seams were not always printing.

(Windows version only) - Printing a sloper or pattern file produced a GPF if the path (filename, including directories) was longer than 32 characters.

Text is now left-justified in both the New Piece and Body Measurements dialogues.

(Windows - dongle version only) Improved dongle-reading for users with bi-directional printers.

Minor cosmetic changes to accommodate foreign language versions.
