  2. Table of Contents /t field code not performing as expected - Feature

    /t seems to be broken when it is used in Table of Contents. When generating a doc output, the TOC ignores the /t and includes all of the headings/styles in the document. Updating the TOC in the output fixes it, which means something is occurring in the generation of the output.

    In addition, when multiple unique TOC's are in a document, all of the TOC's will break if only ONE TOC has the /t field.

    Deleting /t and only using /o is the current mediocre workaround. But it would be great if /t could work so we could use our…

  9. Currently windward supports ToC(Table of Contents) in docx file but not ToF(Table of Figures)

    Generating docx report using windward updates/supports only ToC not ToF(Table of Figures). This is a much needed feature when dynamically generating reports as a word file. It would be great if this feature is added to windward.

  10. Ability to output equations in WindWard

    In the latest version of WindWard it's not possible to output Microsoft Equations, in the output .DOCX file the places where the equations should've been are left empty.

    Ideally, the equations are shown in the generated output.

  11. Images in HTML specified as absolute URLs

    We use Winward to generate HTML content for marketing emails. These mailers often have images included along with the text. However, some email clients block images in HTML that are embedded inline using base64 encoding. An alternative solution is to specify the source of the image as an absolute URL.

    For example, the following inline embedded image:
    <img src="data:image/jpg;base64, iVBORedghAAAfrdsdge=">

    should be replaced with:
    <img src="https://www.myserver.com/car.jpg">.

    It would be great if Winward could support adding images specified by absolute URLs into templates.

  12. XPath 2.0 Connection debugger

    When connecting to a data source errors can occur. In many cases there is too much information about the error for it all to be view-able in the connection editor.

    SQL data sources solve this problem with the connection debugger. There should be one of these for XPATH 2.0 aswell.

  13. Allow entering Array-type Input Parameters

    It would be great if we could add an array-type variable of either String or Number type as an input variable. This could be used to filter datasources with a IN statement, for example.

  14. Support Unix Time

    Support Unix Time and be able to format that as a date or datetime

    Perhaps a new macro could do this for us.

  15. Add color picker to Conditional Formatting Rule Manager

    Dear Windward,

    To select a color in the Format wizard, a color picker would be very helpfull instead of entering hex values manually.

  16. PDF/A-3 support

    Dear Windward team,

    the Java engine already has the ability to render PDF/A-1b compliant files. Would it be possible to extend it to other PDF/A conformance levels, mainly PDF/A-3?

    Thank you very much!

  17. Encrypt PDF Output in Windward Solo

    I am a new Windward Solo user. We love what we are seeing; we need to deliver individual PDF documents which are password protected via email. It's confidential financial info. We will have the password in the batch select query. The recipient will know the password as we will describe in the email body text. In working with Kelly (your support), we came up with the idea of adding a check box next to PDF when selected as an output option, then having a field where a field can be selected from the batch select (plus perhaps the ability to…

  18. Password protect excel output

    The same way you can protect a PDF with a password, it would be great if we could do it for excel files too.

  19. Allow more than one field for Ordering the data

    I am currently using Json file as my Data Source, not sure if other data source have same problem. Currently we can sort data based on only field, some times we need to sort the data based on multiple fields. Please try to accommodate this change in the upcoming release.

    Hello Reporter,

  20. Configurable Watermark

    Add the ability to conditionally add a watermark to a word template based on an input parameter.

    Use case:
    We have an invoice we send to our customers that is a draft. We apply the wording "draft" as a watermark to the template. Once the customer has approved the invoice, we send them a final copy which is identical to the original without the word "draft" as a watermark. Currently, we have to maintain two identical templates to handle this. It would be ideal to only have one template where an input variable controls the display of the watermarked text.
