  2. Enable Split Y-axis scale functionality in WINDWARD Word Templates

    Enable Split Y-axis functionality in WINDWARD Core.

    Example scenario -
    Large molecule (Total antibody and ADC) will have a different y-axis scale. Small molecule components will be in different y-axis scales. Both need to be plotted on the same y-axis.

  3. Add use of error bars (SD and SEM) for charts/graphs.

    While Windward templates allow for graphs/charts to be used, it does not have the capability to use/show error bars. This is a standard functionality for excel/word office products and the ability to do so with Windward sourced graphs/charts is important to the user community.

  4. Show customized datalabels in charts

    In PowerPoint charts it is possible to define a set of data label values (e.g. 71*) to be displayed instead of the value score label. In the attached file I have created an example containing both a value, a linebreak and a text.
    This could be very useful in many situations, e.g. to highlight important findings in data.

  5. Support Mirosoft Word DOCM file format and Macros

    We have many Microsoft Word template with Microsoft Word Macros in them (Word > Developer > Macros).
    The templates are saved in DOCM file format.
    Currently, Windward Report Designer supports using the DOCM templates with Windward Report Designer, to create outputs successfully and to save the output in DOCM file format, but the macros are not available in the output.
    Windward Report Designer shall support Microsoft Word DOCM file format and Macros, so that the Macros can be run after output generation.

  6. Support Hidden styles in templates

    If a Document Template has hidden styles defined, then the generated document (.docx) file should generate the document with those styles hidden.

    One of our clients that generates their documents from our system using Windward, has very clearly defined corporate styles and an expectations that all of their staff will only use those styles in Word Documents to ensure that they are providing a united, consistent front for their customers.

    The templates have styles defined based on their corporate style guide. When a document is generated, the hidden styles are displayed again, which means that our customer has stopped using…

  7. Configure tags to accept xml inputs with different root elements

    Is it possible to configure Windward Designer tags to accept xml inputs with different root elements? For example, the sample template would produce valid output if the root element was "John" or "John_202205". In other languages, you do not always need to specify the root element. For example, you can use // to “ Selects nodes in the document from the current node that match the selection no matter where they are.”

  10. Better ways to format X-axis in a Word chart

    In a Word chart I can't format the X-axis easily. More formatting options would be nice to have.

    For example, sometimes our data starts from 10 and then it increases by a factor of 10, so 10, 20, 30 and so on. In the screenshot that I attached you can see in black the way WindWard displays the X-axis and in red the way I would like to display it.

    Also, there's no way to automatically change the gap between labels so that they would always be separated nicely, no matter how long or short the data on the X-axis…

  12. Let's make the Invalid PDF error message cleaner and easier to read

    We have encountered situations where the software is attempting to Import a PDF which is invalid. This of course fails. The issue I have is with the error message, which at least now says "Invalid PDF", which accurately describes the problem.

    AutoTag version: 22.1.0.85
    Exception: Error: Invalid PDF attempted to be imported! Details: Index: 613, Size: 613

    I think it would be much nicer to fix this so it does not appear that the program blew up, with a long stack traceback. This issue should produce a cleaner error output that omits the stack trace. In this case you have…

  17. Chart with multi-level axis

    Hi Windward team!

    Multi-level axis is a standard excel feature but it is not currently supported by Windward.

    It would be very useful so that - for instance - we can group locations by priority, or by area.

    See attached screenshot.

    Our priority would be to get it in Word templates.
