Version 10.0 Released Follow
Who else has tried Version 10? There are a lot of new features and powers to it, but at the same time, a couple things have gotten more confusing:
> See my screenshot - It appears "Screen Data" has been replaced with "Embedded Data", but nonetheless, there are two fields on this screen that I should be able to change right on here: The Name, and the Type (previously called Data Source). But, I have to click that edit button next to each option to be able to change it. I can't simply click on the "Name" field and edit it, nor does clicking on "Embedded Data" bring me a dropdown box like it used to.
> There's now no way to cancel changes to a field I've been editing properties for - since everything edits in real time. I can Undo, but only one change at a time.
> If I have two fields, un-grouped, I used to be able to select both objects by drawing a box around them, double-clicking into one of them, editing the x/y position, and the other object would move with it the same amount in the same direction. This doesn't seem to happen anymore? To make matters more weird, it doesn't even work if they ARE grouped. If I use the "Group Position" function, I still get weird results where one field will move but not the other.
> I was "missing" on grabbing barcodes, and I realized this is because clicking now in the white space NEXT to a human readable, but still would be within the object's selection box doesn't appear to count as selecting the object anymore. I have to click on the actual barcode, or the text of the HR, but next to the HR is not acceptable.
- Multiple templates per label document? Great work! - Not being able to make each template a different size? Not good. Although, I guess that wouldn't be of as much use unless we could point each template individually to a different printer.
- When I double-clicked into a text or BC object on 9.4 and below, the Screen Data field would be highlighted, allowing me to immediately enter data. I now have to click and highlight manually. I realize I can use the Data Edit tool to quickly change data, but that is not how I am accustomed to editing data, and switching between the arrow and the data edit tool is just as cumbersome (Unless there is a keyboard shortcut I'm not aware of).
I'll have to continue updating this thread as things come up. Thanks for listening.
