***** NEW FEATURES as of v3.0 release  05/07/2016 ********

In response to user feedback and demand, the new version of autoCrat now has the following upgrades and new features:

 -- A single, simpler user interface.  We got rid of the sidebar.  Everything happens through the primary dialogue.
 -- More modern design/interface.
 -- Cleaner code under the hood. Hopefully you notice faster performance and more reliable triggers.
 -- Single document mode.  You can now produce a single document for a merge job.  E.g. a single doc or PDF, with each row of data that meets your job criteria merged into it.  Previously you could only create one document per row of data.  This was one of the most asked for feature requests.  (NOTE:  This only works for docs at the moment, not spreadsheets)
 -- Image merge.  You can now merge images into your docs from a publicly hosted image URL.
 -- Hyperlink merge. Easily add hyperlinks to your merged Google docs.
 -- New Robot!  The autoCrat robot got a major redesign thanks to the immensely talented Måns Swanberg (mansswanberg.com)
