4D Write Pro: Where are my formulas?

Automatically translated from English

When a 4D Write Pro document contains external elements resulting from expressions or formulas, they are visible when the “Display expressions” mode is used. Still, they are blended into the text when the values are displayed. This is what you want for a final document, but it is sometimes useful to easily view these calculated values while writing the document. Well, 4D v19 R3 is giving you new display options for this purpose!

4D Write Pro: Easily locate all the breaks

Automatically translated from English

4D Write Pro documents support five types of breaks:

  • line breaks
  • paragraph breaks
  • page breaks
  • section breaks
  • column breaks

 

Sometimes, you need to locate a certain type of break to replace it with another, or simply delete all its occurrences in the document. To make this possible, we developed a new function: WP Get breaks.
