Release Date: September 3, 2019
- After you export results of a Browse tool to a file, you can click the hyperlink in the pop-up window to view that file.
The Input Data tool can be converted to a Dynamic Input tool through the Context menu.
New one-tool examples for spatial: There are thirteen new, one-tool examples including Buffer, Create Points, Find Nearest, Generalize, Heat Map, Make Grid, Poly Split, Poly Build, Spatial Info, Smooth, Spatial Match, Spatial Process, and Trade Area.
- Designer now has a beta version of Italian available.
The autorecover feature automatically recovers your files in Designer.
The Results window (located at the bottom of your workflow) is now even more interactive. By clicking on a column headers' ellipses and selecting to Sort and/or Filter, you can add the tool(s) to your workflow by clicking on the icon at the top, far-right of the Results window. Click Revert to Original in the icon's drop-down to go back to your Results window's original state.
If you have more than one version of your macro, you can view which version of the macro is used through the Context menu.
You can enable and disable the sound that plays when a workflow completes. In the User Settings menu, select Play Sound at Completion of Workflow.
You can drag and drop a folder from Windows File Explorer directly onto the canvas to create a Directory.
Overview window enhancements:
- The Overview window now shows you at a glance what tools have finished running.
- Double-click anywhere in the Overview window when you are zoomed out to zoom in again.
Press the space bar to close the Finished running window.
If you clear an annotation for a file, it reverts to the original file name.
Designer now recognizes text (.txt) files when you drag and drop them onto the canvas.
A blue border now appears when you select the comment box.
When Designer is closed with any unsaved workflows, a prompt appears with options to save any unsaved workflows.
When copying and pasting tools, you can now simply point to the canvas and Designer will paste the tool there.
The Output Data tool can be converted to an Input Data tool through the Context menu.
You can now save the Browse tool as an Output Data tool page or a Macro Output tool.
The Browse tool configuration window displays the Sum for numeric columns when data profiling is enabled.
Calgary tools include file names in annotations like the other input and output tools.
The Email Tool can be manually configured to use SMTP authentication and encryption types.
