New features in the Macintosh version of Journal Zone

1. Switch Skins!
A new skin is available in addition to the default ‘console' skin. The
‘tablet' skin provides a ‘look and feel' that may suit older students and
adults. The interface is trim and sleek allowing larger text areas.

2. Disable the Graphics Library
You can now control the presence of the Graphics Library. This may be done at installation or may be controlled by the individual user.

3. Change the Journal Starters' Categories
In addition to changing the journal starters within the existing categories,
you can now change the categories! This flexibility supports subject-specific categories such as sentence starters for science, math and so forth in addition to the default categories of Plan, Reflect and Elaborate. The categories you choose are limited only by your imagination.

The Macintosh version is currently only available in English.
