Version 2023.251

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a problem where Grunt could hang if undoing object insertion immediately after inserting.

Version 2023.243

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where some users could not start Grunt under specific circumstances.
  • Fixed some issues with opening protected presentations.
  • Fixed a problem with the chart series editor, which could be infinitely long if you had an infinite number of series. It now, sensibly, gives you a scrollbar instead.

Version 2023.236

What's new

  • The monthly labels in the date axis in Gantt are automatically trimmed if there is no room to display them in the chart.
  • We've removed a limitation in some Conditional rules on what value sizes could be set as arguments.
  • Added user feedback when trying to connect to a .csv file. This file type is not supported but can easily be converted to a supported .xls file.
  • We've ensured that the bracket labels in Gantt always line up pixel-perfect with Milestones labels, regardless of the font size.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where named ranges were only sometimes used as the connected address for Macro-enabled Excel workbooks.
  • The origin line could not be selected and changed for some charts with negative values.
  • The logo rule is more robust and handles changes in search terms better.
  • Fixed a bug in the data editor where the first right-click did not spawn a context menu as expected. It now appears every time.
  • Other minor stability and performance fixes.

Version 2023.230

What's new

  • We've slightly updated our Financial table templates to reflect updated best practices.
  • When adding conditional rules, we use Slide Master accent colors instead of "random" colors at insertion. You know, since random color is probably not what you wanted.
  • In Bubble/Scatter charts, label lines are now always drawn toward the circle's center - which looks nicer than our previous approach.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug preventing the drag-drop of images and other files to work as expected.
  • Fixed an issue with charts containing axis breaks, where the click area of the chart would be larger than the actual chart.
  • Arrow key navigation did not work for text starting with an empty line. In addition, the Home and End keys did not work as expected when editing text. Both issues are fixed.
  • In rules using conditions, the number input field would accept any number inputted but display it as rounded after committing. This is fixed to always display numbers as typed.
  • Fixed an issue causing Visual Grids with Fill conditional rules to crash if the grid contained no values and the min value was set to "Relative."
  • When selecting multiple markers in a line chart, the marker toolbar did not appear when clicked. This is fixed.
  • We've simplified available modes for marker colors in line charts in Visual Grid and set the default to link it to the series color. We've also fixed the preview color of marker colors in charts.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the axis reset buttons from being clickable in Visual Grids.

Version 2023.224

What's new

  • Value jumps are now much more straightforward to reposition. Just drag directly on the "leg" of the Value jump to move it where you want. We've also improved the repositioning interaction for CAGRs.

Bug fixes

  • Improved stability for data connections, fixing several cases where it could stop responding.
  • Fixed an issue where rules in groups did not look disabled when they were. We've also fixed the ordering of rules in groups, which was inverted.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the adjustment of bubble sizes in bubble charts.
  • Labels in charts starting with an empty line did not appear in the charts but should now be visible again.
  • Label visibility options are again available in Waterfall charts in Visual Grid.
  • Fixed an issue with the color picker where only the first 10 custom colors appeared.
  • Fixed an issue where the default line marker color was not linked to the series color in combo charts by default.
