Understanding end user needs and creating user-friendly interfaces are high priorities for every application developers.
And as you may know, the 4D language lets you alias table and field names in order to make them more readable for end users. This allows easier translating and readability in standard dialogs (query, sort, and formula editors), but also filtering out any table or fields that should be kept away from end users sight.
During 4D Summit 2018, we had requests to extend this feature to 4D Write Pro. Well, we listened and it’s now available with 4D v17 R4!
By now, you should be familiar with the WP Get position command. At the very least you’ve read about it in this blog post. Introduced with v17, it helps you get information about the location of elements within your documents.
4D v17 R4 spices things up … now, it also returns coordinates!
We’re pleased to announce that a new feature has been added to 4D Write Pro. In page mode, a vertical ruler can be displayed on the left side of the page! This lets you graphically manage the vertical margins. And if your document contains headers or footers, the spaces between them and the body of your document can be modified easily thanks to this ruler.
Becoming more feature-rich with every R-release, 4D v17 R4 introduces the ability to export 4D Write Pro documents in .docx format!
