Today we released yet another Datylon version packed with improvements and new features on different levels: from new styling features to enabling to buy multiple licenses of Datylon for Illustrator. Furthermore, we worked on Datylon Server, our ever more popular solution to automate the production of charts and reports. Keep reading to discover what's new in version R51!
TEXT STYLING OPTIONS
Better readability & more elegant labels
Sometimes you find yourself wanting to add footnote numbers to labels. Or underline words, or add a forced return to your chart label. All of it (and more to come!) is now possible with the new text styling options in both Datylon for Illustrator & Datylon web app. You can style the labels using ^markup symbols^ - both in static labels and in the data itself. _Woah!_
ADVANCED STYLING OPTIONS
Think globally, act locally
Avoid Babylonian confusion and create your charts and reports in your local language. With this release, you now have a choice from 31 different locale settings to format datetime labels.
The more the merrier
As of now, it is possible to purchase one or more subscriptions online for someone else. In the Datylon web app, you can view and manage your subscriptions, and assign license keys to yourself and to your co-workers.
Datylon Server update
Datylon server now accepts a "visible" chart property within a JSON data file. This new feature allows you to automatically hide or unhide charts by means of the data feed. This gives you more flexibility for automated reports e.g. visualizing different chart types depending on the number of categories in your data set.
But there is more. We also added more data management options and improved the process of exporting artboards to the Datylon web app. Some other functionalities were also implemented - we recommend you read more in detail about them in the R51 release notes in the Datylon Help Center.
