Emergency changes to Windows designer to restore stability (Completed 23/12/2020)

Next sprint abandoned while we restore stability to the windows tcMenu designer application and make it possible to download and use all current patch releases of the software. Store version will update much slower in this case, and the download version will update quicker. New version available in BETA, being tested before being made the stable version, and put on the store.

Status Est Project Task
Done website Move the contact us page to use the helpdesk based solution and completely remove the current solution
Done website Add a download area to the main site for users who do not want to use the designer store application
Done tcMenu Ensure on windows that save really means save, remove all the pre-checks for changes and just ALWAYS save
Done tcMenu Sometimes after adding and item the editor does not update the actual item (related to above)

Sprint: Speak and spell (Completed 12/12/2020)

Continue the work to make tcMenu more accessible to new users. Make sure we get the documentation updated to match the latest versions of all the libraries. We need a firebreak where we put embedCONTROL on the backburner for one release, to let us get what we’ve got fully documented.
