  1. Vision version 2.0007 released

    Posted on

    Another free upgrade is available for all Vision v2 users. V2.0007 is for both Windows & Mac. It contains:

    Keyboard Shortcuts
    For those who like to use the keys to make things happen more quickly we have added lots of key shortcuts for you to use. You can read about these shortcuts once you have updated to v2.0007 by clicking the Help menu in Vision and then selecting Keyboard shortcuts.

    Repertorisation Chart
    We have made lots of improvements to the repertorisation chart

    Automatic saving of your settings
    If you change the settings on your chart, for example, the Analysis type, Order, or Filters, Vision will remember these and automatically set them up for you the next time you start Vision.

    Show only number of rubrics
    It is now possible to suppress the display of boxes denoting Kingdom Colours and Remedy Grade Totals. This is provided for those users who wish to focus solely on the number of rubrics each remedy covers in the case without the distraction of other coloured boxes. You can access and set these in the Preferences option for the Chart. Here is an example from MacVision:




    New Blend feature
    Vision can now remember your favourite settings in the Chart. All you need do is make the changes to your favourite settings and click the Save Blend button the toolbar of the Chart. Thereafter, if you make any amendments to those settings and want to quickly go back to your regular, favourite settings just click the Restore Blend button. Here is a screenshot from WinVision:

    Keyboard
    All of the keys on your keyboard now control the display of the Chart in the way you would expect. You can use the arrow keys to scroll Left and Right through the remedies and Up and Down the list of rubrics. The End and Home buttons take you instantly to very first or last remedy in the Chart.

    Improved way of finding a remedy on the Chart
    In Windows you can now start typing letters to make Vision jump to the first remedy that matches what you are loking for. If you were looking for Sepia somewhere in your Chart just quickly type SEP and press the Enter key to make Vision jump to it.

    In Mac you must firstly use the keyboard combo of Ctrl+R and then type as described above.

    This is a much quicker way of finding remedies compared to the previous method (find remedy in the chart toolbar) or scrolling through the entire list.

    Version 2.0007 will be automatically updated on Windows systems (if you give permission of course). Mac users will need to download v2.0007 from here https://www.miccant.com/downloads

  3. Adding your own images or videos to rubrics

    Posted on

    When browsing the repertory you can now add your own images or videos to any rubric in any repertory. To add your own media file(s) select the rubric you wish to use and then either:

    Right click the mouse on the rubric (Windows) / Ctrl + Click (Mac). On the small menu that will be displayed you can select media and then whichever option is relevant. 

    Mmedia

    When adding you can select any media file in a common format (e.g. JPG, PNG, MP3 or MP4 etc). After adding a media file then the next time you are borwsing the repertory a blue microphone symbol will be displayed next to the rubric to alert you to the presence of a media file.

    You could use this feature to explain a clinical rubric with either a photo or video for future reference. Or you could add a media file which might be a video of a case in which this rubric was a prominant feature...and so on.


  4. Learning more about Families in v2.0006

    Posted on

    A new quick access feature is available in v2.0006 to make learning about families oF remedies a little easier. If you click on the Remedies tab to get a list of all the remedies in the Vision database there is now a new filter button under the tree:-

    Clicking this button will cause Vision to replace the alphabetical list of remedies with a display that shows all of the Families used in Vision. You can then browse and then click on any family to see information on the right side of the screen. Any information for the family you see displayed in blue and underlined is a clickable feature. To access any information Vision may have about any remedy click the classification information of the Family displayed in blue underline in the top left quadrant (you can use the taxanomical classifications in the first 3 rows e.g Lepidopetra or the common name of the Family  - Butterflies Moths in the example below):



    When you have selected a family you can also see a list of all remedies belonging to that family in the bottom right of the screen. And you can click any family member there to immediately 'jump' into that remedy to read more about it.



    Here is additional information on using Family data in Vision:

    You can use Vision to select a Family and get information on it as a learning exercise in addition to using Families in an analytical way when working cases

    Here are responses to previous questions in the previous version of Vision:

     "I was attending a webinar by J.Hardy on trees today and he was filtering out rubrics in that have minimum of 3 remedies in a family classification - is that possible in Vision? If so - how? Also can I filter out the same way some info just specifically on a family?"

    To do this click 'Comp Rx' on the toolbar, choose your repertory and chapter and then choose the Family to filter with (top right).  

    "Also, how can I access information on the family right away? I was thinking to check out Euphorbiaceae information and to see all the remedies in it. Went to Comp Rx but could not find that family in there. Are there different ways - see all rubrics, or just read on the family in general? Please help.

    In Vision we use Families to provide easy access to the families used in homeopathy using their common names in a simple, easy to scroll list. So you would scroll the list and select Spurges as this as the common name for Euphorbiaceae. We use ‘Kingdoms’ to provide a proper taxonomical hierarchical naming standard (APG4). So with Kingdoms you would need to choose the Plant kingdom, Eudicots and then you will see Euphorbiaceae

    There are a variety of other ways to access family info in Vision. Examples:

    If you have any rubric or group of rubrics selected in the repertory browse you can click the Families button in the toolbar to see the leading families for that condition/rubric:-

     

    Another obvious place is on the repertorisation chart where you can change the Presentation to Kingdom or Family (to show you the ‘leading’ families in your case):-




    abd you can drill down into any family by double clicking on any family bar:-

    and finally, a final double click on any remedy will take you to the materia medica of that remedy (if there is any mm data for that remedy).


    You can also select the Filters on the repertorisation chart to limit the display to only those rx in your desired family:-
