New possibilities for configurating the short search:
It is now possible to define connected searches right from the beginning. This means that, for example, in CENSUS you can reach all the antique monuments which are contained in the documentation of a certain artist with one single function (for formatting instructions see the Administrator's Manual).

Individual fonts for each database: For some time DYABOLA has been able to display all the letters of the Greek alphabet, as well as various diacritical signs. As it became necessary to use further symbols to fulfil the requirements of various databases, the extended DYABOLA fonts have now been individualised to complement each database. If you need specific additional symbols for your project, please refer to info@dyabola.de.
