4D Write Pro brings good news with 4D v18 R2: deleting inline or anchored pictures can now be done in a snap! Say hello to the new command, WP DELETE PICTURE.
With 4D v18 R2, 4D Write Pro is able to manage formula objects inside documents. To do so, four new commands have been created: WP Get formulas, WP Insert formula, WP Compute formulas, and WP Freeze formulas. They all can be used with intuitive targets like document, body, headers, etc. And as you may have guessed from the command names, formulas are no longer text expressions but powerful formula objects!
In 4D v18, we shipped a cool feature allowing you to easily manipulate tables with new commands and standard actions. We’ve got even more good news (especially for those who prefer UI over coding): we’ve extended these new capabilities to the 4D Write Pro widget interface. Now, a new tab lets you manipulate tables directly from the widget!
4D Write Pro has been designed to create all kinds of documents, from the most simple to the most sophisticated. To achieve this diversity, documents can hold distinct parts, like paragraphs, sections, headers, footers, etc. Once filled in, 4D Write Pro behaves in such a way that all of these parts can be read. However, sometimes some parts must be resized according to their content. This is typically the case for headers and footers whose height can change automatically. This functionality is generally very useful, but sometimes it’d be more practical to set the heights of headers and footers to constant values (even if their content may be truncated and no longer be fully visible).
Want to use 4D Write Pro to create HTML emails with static pictures in the text? Maybe something like a fancy newsletter with pictures of the top ten destinations in the world, or simply include your company logo? Wondering how to accomplish this? Wonder no more because with the 4D v18, you can in three simple steps:
You already know that 4D Write Pro allows you to create tables and append rows to them. With 4D v18, we’ve got more thrilling news! We’re excited to announce that managing the insertion and deletion of rows and columns is not only possible, it’s also very easy. This can be done either by programming, thanks to four new commands, or by using the interface (via the widgets or the contextual menu). Keep reading for more details!
4D v16 R4 made your dreams come true with the delivery of a huge feature: tables. Real tables where text automatically wraps to fit the column size and don’t “break” when your data changes! Since then, you’ve been able to create tables with as many rows and columns as desired. Plus, you can define the style of the table, each row, column, or cell, including the width of the columns. Most of these operations were achieved by programming, but what if we told you that with 4D v18, the width of columns can be resized by end users?
For 4D Write Pro, 4D v18 brings good news: the arrival of style sheets! We’re thrilled to announce that you can now manage your own style sheets for paragraphs or characters.
View settings are used to define how a document should be displayed. Until 4D v17 R5, these settings could only be modified using the contextual menu or standard actions. Now they can also be set and get within an object using new commands, as we explained in this blog post. But you can do even more, because these settings can be saved and re-applied afterward! You’ll definitely appreciate having your settings saved!
