Hello everyone, after one month holiday, we release V2.40 today.  This release includes some important new features and enhancements to ease the container usage, 7 bug fixings are also included.

Easier Container Usage

We have implemented some useful new features for Group container, including:

  1. Allow moving member within element group.
  2. Allow adding member to existing element group.
  3. Allow extracting member from existing element group.

Also we have made two related enhancements:

  • Auto grouping multi-selected elements before embedding into non-group container.
  • Can embed element into nested container.

All these together provide a much better experience on container usage.  You can embed multiple elements into container a time; you can embed more element into a container even it has embedded element already; you can extract any embedded element from its container; you can move or resize the embedded element…  The animation below shows the example of container usage, which has become much more flexible.

Element Path Links

If you use container a lot in your plot, sometimes you may feel difficult to select a specific container or embedded element.  From this version you can find the “Element Path Links” in the floating tool pane if you select an embedded element or a non-empty container element.  These links can help you to quickly select the container, the sibling or child element for current selected element.

Fixed Bugs:

  • Bug_0223: “Manage Categories” window (not pinned) will be hidden time by time if floating tool pane is translucent.  (Thank Mark for reporting)
  • Bug_0224: Multiple instances of custom element may have duplicated ids for embedded element.
  • Bug_0225: Element is not valid after being embedded into ScrollableContainer, until moving the container a bit.
  • Bug_0226: Copy a Tabs (or Vertical Tabs) element that contains image elements, then paste it to another plot, the images are not migrated to the plot.
  • Bug_0227: Can not click to switch tab in edit area for Tabs or Vertical Tabs if they are embedded.
  • Bug_0228: Element chooser: select an embedded element, then select a non-embedded element, the embedded element should be unselected.
  • Bug_0229: Newly created, unsaved plot can not use the display controller to show/hide elements.
