articy:draft - Version 2.1.0.26075

Released: 2013-06-26

articy:draft - General

  • NEW - Location layers & locks: All elements on locations can now be grouped. Single location elements and entire location groups can be made invisible and/or locked to prevent from accidentally selection/editing.
  • NEW - Excel import/roundtrip: Objects can no be exported in a way that they can be re-imported again. This allows to make a roundtrip e.g. for a balancing run or to import data that articy:draft has never seen before.
  • NEW - Calculated strips: Templates can now use the new property type strip (calculated). Such a strip can receive a user-defined query that automatically fills the strip.
  • ADDED - Hyperlinks: All articy objects now provide a possibility to copy a hyperlink to the clipboard. This hyperlink can be used in other applications and, when clicked, shows the particular object inside articy:draft.
  • ADDED - Russian: Articy:draft has been fully translated to the 'Russian' language.
  • IMPROVED - Strips in flow editor: The attachment strips of flow fragments and dialogues now have an inspect button that opens a popup showing all contained attachments. This is especially useful, when lots of attachments per flow element are used.
  • IMPROVED - Export dialog: The export dialog is now able to store the settings of the XML, DOCX, XLSX, XLSX (for re-import) tabs in user-named presets.
  • IMPROVED - Object picker dialog: The dialog that allows to pick an object (preview image, link/jump target, custom slot property) now shows a preview while browsing for the desired object. Additionally the tree of pickable objects now collapses to the previously selected object when opened. Finally the dialog is now resizable.
  • IMPROVED - Location links: The tooltip of location links now also show the description of the linked object.
  • CHANGED: The save file format for articy projects has been changed to 'ARTICY 2.1'. Projects need to be converted (see how to update your projects).
  • FIXED - Memory usage: The unneccessary increase in memory usage over time is fixed now.
  • FIXED: Various issues with importing Final Draft documents.

articy:draft - Multiuser

  • NEW - Use existing Perforce workspaces: Multi-user projects that use Perforce as a repository can now use an already existing workspace instead of creating a new one.
