AMDER: Actor Missing Dialogue Error Report v1.3.0.0
Release: 2012-06-12Support: From this DonationCoder forum thread

AMDER: Actor Missing Dialogue Error Report, is a tool to register the Episode, Actor, TimeCodes, and some states for actors missing a dialogue to express for a play/tv-show. The Error Report can then be saved into an .xls or .xlsx file, sorted by Episode number, for feedback to the script supplier.

Allows to load from a previously saved Error Report, or a specifically formed .csv file, containing "missing dialogue" for text, and optionally parsing page numbers marked as 'pgno ' from that same text. Setting the option in Settings, also all "(Song...)" lines can be extracted from that .csv file, with the same page number option. Several .csv files can be appended to be combined into a single Error Report, and read in one sweep if the Batch option is enabled.

This tool was requested (in a private IRC chat) by Saira on the DonationCoder forum, related thread: csv import

- Download, then unpack the zip-file in it's own directory, prerequisite: .NET 4.x runtime, all external libs required are included.
- Run AMDER.exe, either directly or by a user-created shortcut.

Local files:
Files are saved to the Documents folder (initially proposed), but can be located in any normal document location
Settings are save to a user-specific ApplicationData directory

Optionally remove any files saved
Optionally remove the user-settings file (UserAppData)AMDERUserSettings.xml
Remove the directory containing the executable and dll files
