DD Solver Version 12.96e
A new option provides more space for the west hand.
Formerly there was not enough room to display a suit
with 10 or more cards.This version also corrects some
problems with the Letter card style and also Undo trick.
This version cleans up a problem with Swedish duplicate
games and also does a better job of displaying West's
cards when holding a long suit.
It's been almost 2 months since the last update. This
version adds a new capability to the Filter feature. It
is now possible to filter deals based upon LTC: either
Opener's, Responder's, or the combined LTC for the
declaring side. On the main menu of the Filter screen,
click on Points and select from among TP, K-R, HCP, or
A new feature in the Custom Dealer screen now provides
for swapping two hands with one click. The Filter Screen
now correctly indicates DD and non-DD opening leads. Sub
versions a and b fix two bugs.
DDS now processes the complete file even when there is
an error in one or more deals. Several changes made to
handle Swedish online tournaments.
New Filter feature added. In the indicated screens, you
can now filter on Total Points and K-R as well as HCP. A
bug in Custom Dealer was fixed.
This version includes a different card back for the Old
Cards. It also fixes a problem creating PBN files.
Formerly DDS did not correctly create deals that had ten
or more alerts. It wrote them out of order.
There were a few problems with the new cards that were
introduced in the last version of DDS. I'm sure you will
find this a much
version. All four card styles have been improved: Old
cards, New Cards, Symbols, and Letters. In general, the
New Cards will look best if you have Zoomed the program
(using the Ctrl + feature) to at least 140%. Hover your
mouse over the Date (upper left corner of the screen) to
see the current DDS zoom percentage. Each Ctrl
plus/minus increases/decreases it by 10%.
Many thanks to

For several years I've been unhappy with the look of the
cards in DDS. As I hope you know, you can change the
size of all objects on any DDS screen by clicking Ctrl +
to increase or Ctrl - to decrease. If you increase the
size of all objects, the cards would get bigger but also
more "jaggedy" and pixelated. There is now a new option
that lets you select higher resolution cards that will
have far less pixelation. I'm thinking of removing the
old style cards in a month. If you want me to retain
them please send me an email.
