There is one more thing.
- modify events per click
If you right click on a BT courve you can modify the time of events like CHARGE or DRY via
a popup menu.

These are some of changes and their explanations in artisan version 0.5.4
- adds events by value
Events by value draw faster than events by type. There is no penalty of performance when
drawing more than 20 events by value or any other higher number. At the end of a roast,
you could always convert/visualize to events type. It is just a mode. They are made in the
same principle ans events by type but instead of using only 4 bars (four event types),
events by value use 11 bars. Lowest bar is for no value. Then second lowest bar is for
value 0, thrid lowest bar is for value 1, etc, up to value 10.
Events by value are configured in the menu Config/Events...
- adds custom event button palettes
A palette is a memory footprint of a button configuration. There are now 10 memory
allocations to store button configurations (there are 10 palettes). Palettes allow
categorization and unlimited expansion of of event buttons. Each palette can be accessed
by using the keyboard shortcut numbers 0-9.
Let me give you an easy example. These steps show how to program 3 palettes of 3
Go to Config/Events/Buttons:
Press button [B Defaults]. This button generates automatically 4 rows (from 4 event
types) of buttons with a range of values from 0 to 10. Now you have created new buttons
but they have to be saved in a palette if you want to have more than one configuration.
Then go to palette tab (third tab) and save buttons as palette #0 (you have made one
Go back to tab Buttons (second tab). Enter number 190 in color pattern. Then go to
palette tab and save buttons as palette #1 (you have made palette #1).
Go back to tab Buttons. Enter number 300 in color pattern. Then go to palette tab and
save buttons as palette #2 (you have made palette #2).
In this example, you have saved/programed 3 palettes. Instead of just changing colors,
you could have programmed the buttons for any other purpose or configuration.
Now close the Event Configuration Dialog.
Press keyboard ,, and see how the buttons change. (ie. pallete #0 is restored
with the keyboard shortcut , etc)
There is also an option to save-restore the palettes to a text file in the third tab. For
example, It could take some time to do all the work of programming the buttons, and then
lose the work for some reason. For example if you ever had to do a Factory Reset (in the
Help menu), then all the settings and all the palettes would be lost. With a text file,
your time of hard work programming the buttons could be saved.
- adds virtual device from plot
There is a new button to add a virtual device from the Tools/Extras math plotter
- adds K204 CSV import
new import method
- improves Designer
Now it is easier to use Designer to create profiles from pen and paper. For example, you
can record the main points of a roast with a pen, then transfer the data using Designer to
create a profile.
- improves Statistics
One more option was added to hide/show the evaluations and other minor improvements.
- improves Help dialogs
New help dialogs were added to help in the development of artisan and to find bugs
- improves relative times
In the Roast properties (and other places), you can edit the CHARGE time with more
flexibility. This time is important because the other mark times are relative to it.
- adds axes Reset time.
Now you can tell artisan what max time you want to reset to after pressing Reset.
- many bug fixes
