Buttons on the Manager module’s top toolbar
Before this update, the top toolbar contained two options: “Browser” and “Preview.” The “Browser” option could be expanded to show the Manager’s other viewing modes (Browser; Map; Compare; Two Browsers Side by Side; and Two Browsers, Stacked). The browsing modes are now expanded next to each other on the top bar: Map, Browser, Preview, and Full View. To the right of these are buttons for the Browser’s display modes: One Browser; Two Browsers, Stacked; Two Browsers Side by Side.
The Compare mode has been removed.
A new Full View mode has been added.

Buttons on the Develop module’s top toolbar
Before this update, the top toolbar contained two options: “Browser” and “Preview.” Clicking “Browser” or any of the modes after clicking the option switched you out into the Manager module. Now the modes are expanded side-by-side. Clicking the Browser no longer switches you into the Manager module; you remain in the Develop module.

Buttons on the Editor module’s top toolbar
Before this update, the top toolbar contained two options, “Browser” and “Preview.” Clicking “Browser” or any of the modes after clicking the option switched you out into the Manager module. Now none of these options are available in the Editor.

Compare Images
This function has been completely removed from the program. It is no longer available as a mode in the Manager, nor can it be found in the Preferences window. But pictures can still be compared in ZPS – use the Preview function for this.

Full View
This newly-added function is available as a mode in the Manager and Develop modules. See here for more information.

Metadata Tokens
Most of the controls for “variable text” have seen deep changes to how they look and work: they now use “metadata tokens” instead. Thus at present, the program uses variable text in some places, and metadata tokens in others. See here for more information.

System icon
In the spring 2022 update (build 371), the View | Preferences | Thumbnails window lost the Show icons for pictures’ Default Programs in their thumbnails option, and it was no longer possible to show these icons in the program. The autumn update has restored this function. It is now located in View | Preferences | Thumbnails, under a new name: System Icon.

Folder Display and Sorting
New options controlling how folders are sorted have been added to the Display and Sorting window. Before the update, only file sorting was available. Also, you can now have different file sorting options for every folder. See here for more information.

Changes to How Files in Projects Are Replaced
If you have created a project in the Print or Video module and in the meantime some of its files have been moved to a new location, the program alerts you to this.

Drawing Circles and Squares in the Editor
The Editor’s object placement tools now offer one-click placement of a geometrically precise circle or square. For more information, click here.

Automatic Photo Rotation
Vertically-shot photos are now automatically displayed vertically in Print Photos projects within the Print module.

Picture Cropping
Print Photos and Contact Sheets projects in the Print module now provide a small toolbar at the top left for changing how a picture in the project is cropped.

Filmstrip Scrolling
Before this update, items in the Filmstrip could only be scrolled horizontally. Now a vertical scrollbar can be shown in the Filmstrip, using an option in the Display and Sorting window.

The Display and Sorting Window
Some of the functions in this window now differ depending on whether you have entered it from the Browser or from Preview mode. This is true in both the Manager and the Develop module. In Preview mode, this window now offers functions for the Filmstrip.
