4D v16 R6 introduces a new concept of communication between processes: shared object and shared collection variables! They are a solution so you can avoid using interprocess variables (which can’t be used in multi-thread mode). Thanks to this, you will be able to easily share information between preemptive processes.
Pictures speak louder than words, or so they say. In fact, according to researchers the brain processes images 60,000 times faster than words. 4D Write Pro is constantly evolving, version after version, to support more and more picture-related features. After in-line pictures and background pictures, 4D v16 R6 gives you the full control over picture insertion at a specific position in a document, in front of or behind text, as well as anchored to the page or specific parts of the document (i.e., header, footer, sections).
We are pleased to announce the launch of beta testing for 4D v16 R6! This release is loaded with enhancements and new features that you won’t want to miss!
Let’s take a look and discover what’s new in the 4D v16 R6 Beta:
- Improvements to the 4D language and new emerging concepts – so you can write better code … faster
- Increased security of 4D Web Server – so you can have better rankings on web security audit tests
- Pictures in absolute position with 4D Write Pro – so you can have even more control
- Ability to convert existing 4D View documents to 4D View Pro – so you can upgrade easier
4D v16 R5 is now available!
Enhanced security, 4D language improvements, more commands to handle your 4D Write Pro documents, and an automatic mode for 4D View Pro advanced lists, are the highlights of 4D v16 R5.

No matter what line of work you are in, you may want to know how to use tabs (left, right, center, decimal tab). They are quite useful as, for example, they allow you to structure documents by separating and indenting your information.
In typography and design, details matter. But getting details just right can be quite time-consuming. 4D Write Pro now provides an additional functionality to fine tune your design in an instant: leading characters. You know the repeated dots or other characters in a table of contents … the ones that go from the end of the text in your first column to the beginning of the text in the second column? That’s them!
From Object Notation to 4D Write Pro and security to straightforward tips, 2017 had it all! Let’s take a look back with ten of our most-read posts. Here are the topics that grabbed your attention in 2017:
We’re in the visual and interactive content era. It’s becoming increasingly more and more prominent. Take a look at digital community statistics and you’ll discover that YouTube is the second most popular social network.
At some point, most web developers want to include videos in their sites and coincidentally, databases frequently contain links to videos (either hosted locally or on the web). This post shows you two ways to include videos in your 4D applications.
