Here are some of the main updates we have made to Hutch:

Our pedigree launch is in motion! We’ve released several new updates this week and have invited 60% of users to try it out. Here’s what’s new:
  • Increased the font size for printed pedigrees to make them easier to read. This required changing the layout slightly and limiting the printed pedigree to 6 fields that show for all four generations. Online pedigrees can still show all fields and up to 8 generations.
  • The placeholder rabbit image will now be hidden if the photo is disabled in Pedigree Settings.
  • The new pedigree design auto-centers on the main rabbit’s card and zooms out by default when 5 or more generations are showing.
  • Fixed gray boxes that appeared around the pedigree cards on the PDF version on Apple devices for one of the border styles.
  • Fixed a bug in the 8-generation view which caused words to overflow the bounds of the cards.
  • Fixed a bug that wasn’t importing the entire line of a rabbit when copying from an existing pedigree.
Other Updates:
  • Fixed a bug that was causing some images to be stretched when uploaded through the mobile app.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the iOS app to crash when adding breeder notes.
