Last night we submitted v2.6.2 of Stock + and Stock + Pro to Apple for them to review. Included in that update is a new ticker preset called “Classic”. Classic attempts to mimic the styling of the v2.5 and earlier ticker, the one you know and love.
One of the improvements of the new ticker is the ability to dynamically load themes without having to wait for an update. So if you would like the Classic theme right now, you can go ahead and download it.
To install and start using the new ticker theme, double click on the downloaded .zip file to unzip it. Then double click on the .tickerpreset file to install it. If the preset installed correctly, you should see the following message.
You can now select the installed preset from the app preferences. Like so:
Other changes in v2.6.2 include:
- Wider range of ticker font sizes. The ticker font can now be made even smaller.
- Single stock tickers no longer scroll.
- Ticker context menu (right click on ticker) has been added back in with quick access to commonly used items (hide ticker, open preferences, quit app).
- Bug fixes
We expect Apple to finish reviewing the 2.6.2 update and release it sometime late next week (around the 19th or 20th). Until then feel free to send us any questions or comments and we’d be happy to help you out in any way possible.
