More features in the 4D Write Pro interface widget

The 4D Write Pro toolbar and sidebar continue to grow with more functionalities to help you create documents even faster and easier.

With 4D v18 R6, you can :

  • increment or decrement text
  • copy/paste the ruler
  • change the background color of a paragraph
  • change the style of a word (uppercase, lowercase, etc.)


In the Home tab, you can define the background color of a paragraph and apply a text transformation like Capitalize, Uppercase, or Lowercase.

In the Margins tab, you can increment or decrement the text and copy/paste the ruler.


Wondering which attributes are impacted by the copy/paste of the ruler? Answer: the margin, the first text indentation, the text direction, and the tabs.


In the Margins and Alignments tab, you can increment or decrement the text and copy/paste the ruler.
