You’d like to use 4D Write Pro, but don’t have the time to create a toolbar from scratch? We’ve created a sample application with a ready-to-use toolbar, including two icon families, so you can choose the toolbar style you prefer (flat design or classic). And on top of that, we also added a complete menu bar! Check it out and reuse it for your own applications!
You need a custom 4D Write Pro toolbar for your application but you’re concerned it might take too much time to implement it? Good news, with 4D v16 R4 standard actions can now be assigned to checkboxes and pop-up menus. Save time with this ready-to-use feature and easily create a user-friendly interface perfectly matching your needs!
You can now create a pop-up menu to control the font size or the border style for your 4D Write Pro area just in one click, no code needed! Just assign the action using the property list and it’s done. And the object status and value will be automatically updated by 4D depending on the context and text selection! Simple and powerful…
With 4D v16 R2 you can display a graphical horizontal ruler at the top of the 4D Write Pro area ! Thanks to this horizontal ruler, the text can be easily formatted.
Prior to the existence of this graphic ruler, tabulations could only be managed by programming or using the 4D Write Pro interface widget. From now (4D v16 R2 and above), when the ruler is displayed (this is optional) the final user will have the opportunity to manage margins and tabulations easily and graphically.
One common usage of 4D Write was to create documents automatically, such as invoices, reports, orders, based on templates created or designed by the end user.
4D Write Pro v16 will support this usage with the new concept of bookmarks, that can be used to easily build new documents section by section.
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.
