- Fixed a bug that prevented the On-The-Fly-Totals from updating as they should, reduced the height of the Invoice Printer dialog to better fit monitors with limited resolutions, added a new Preference to allow the default background color of the Company Area on printed invoices to match the color used in older versions of the non-Pro TinyBooks, updated the text in the Help Window, etc.
