New: "Analyze / Output Preferences... / Always list self directed": for elements that are interactions which are not self directed, the self directed component will still be listed in the output.
New: "Analyze / Output Preferences... / Limit interaction count": for elements that are multidirectional the user can select the number of recipients the program should list the output for. e.g.: selecting only 2 means that only those interactions will be listed that were directed against two recipients but those that were directed against one, three or more will not be listed.
New: "Analyze / Output Preferences... / Output only for...": output will be only generated for the selected subjects.
New: "Analyze / Output Preferences... / Regard overstretching elements as one": if a behavior/event is divided by a a marker then the program will not count this element twice (once for the phase before and after the marker) when calculating Frequencies, but only count it once for the phase where the behavior/event started. When calculating Durations / Percentages the whole duration of the behavior/event will be counted for the phase where the behavior/event started. When calculating Percentages this will lead to the increase of "Total Time" (length of phase) with the additional length the behavior(s)/event(s) stretch beyond the marker. This setting does only apply to Frequencies and Durations / Percentages.
Improved: "Save from Zero Point", "Save until Last Element", "Save as Numbers", "Everything in one line" and "Output File Format" moved from "Analyze / Output Options" to "Analyze / Output Preferences..."

MAJOR BUG, PLEASE READ!
This bug was causing data to be saved erroneously when coding multiple subjects, possibly causing data loss!
It was present since version 10.06.10.
Within one cell (same time point and same category) only the data for the subject with the highest number was saved.
DATA FOR SUBJECTS WITH A LOWER NUMBER WAS NOT SAVED!
When loading the data the only saved element was moved to the first subject, so re-saving the data completely scrambled subject membership.
Now the program saves the data correctly and displays the remaining behaviors at the correct subject given data was not loaded and re-saved in the meantime.
I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and will try to be more strict about testing the program before releasing updates!
I would like to remind everyone about the necessity of backing up the data before using a newer version and of testing the programs new features before starting actual work.
