Product 4D Write Pro bookmarks

A new feature in 4D Write Pro: “Bookmarks”!

Bookmarks can now be created inside 4D Write Pro documents. But what are bookmarks exactly ? A bookmark is a named reference matching a text selection of a 4D Write Pro document.

Several bookmarks can be present inside a single document. Once bookmarks have been created, they can be retrieved as a list of names, then using one of them allows retrieve the range of the corresponding text.

View properties in 4D Write Pro

From 4D v16, you can define at design phase the way a 4D Write Pro document will be displayed in a 4D Write Pro area. Without writing a single line of code, you can define several view attributes such as the resolution, zoom, page view mode. Advanced properties are also available to define whether you want to show 4D expressions or values for instance. Again no code to write, just a checkbox and it’s done.

Protection of 4D Write Pro dynamic expression evaluation

With 4D v16, 4D Write Pro is now providing a higher level of protection regarding the evaluation of 4D expressions in documents.
Developers can now fully rely on 4D for checking the evaluation of these expressions. By doing so, end-user machines and databases will be automatically protected from any possible side effects.

A valid 4D expression can be a field, a variable, a 4D command, a statement returning a value, a project method, and so on.

Starting with 4D v16, “unsafe” 4D expressions will no longer be evaluated and an error will be displayed instead.


4D Write Pro commands in preemptive processes

With 4D v16, you can improve your database scalability using the new 4D Write Pro commands in preemptive processes.

If you are doing routines for creating or converting documents programmatically – e.g. invoices … you can now do it with preemptive workers as most 4D Write Pro commands are now thread safe!


Headers and footers in 4D Write Pro

4D Write Pro is moving forward with 4D v16!

You can now insert headers and footers in your 4D Write Pro documents but also retrieve any existing headers and footers when opening an existing .4w7 document from the 4D Write plugin.

You can define document sections and add headers or footers for all or independently per section. You can have different headers/footers for the right and left page, or for the first page of the section. Of course, headers and footers can be styled as the rest of the document (font, color, margin, padding, borders…) and can contain images as well.


Insert in-line pictures in 4D Write Pro documents

You want to insert your company logo in the signature of all your 4D Write Pro documents when they are being created? Or you want to add a product image for each of your invoices lines?

With 4D v16, it is now possible to insert inline pictures programmatically in your 4D Write Pro document with the dedicated command WP INSERT PICTURE!


4D Write Pro User Interface

With 4D v15 R4, it is now possible to design your own 4D Write Pro interface with dedicated commands. There are a lot of new commands for manipulating attributes for selections, paragraphs, images inside a document, or the document itself.
