  7. Windward Community

    Hi,

    I would be interested to exchange knowledge with other Windward users, see what they do and show what we do.

    Would be great if Windward could facilitate this :)

    Cheers,

  8. 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.

  9. Designer Input Parameter type Boolean

    Designer supports a number of types for template variables, but not type Boolean.
    We read the types of the template variables in order to decide which interaction element to provide to the user on our application's GUI.
    For some cases a number of tick boxes shall be provide on the GUI.

  10. Information Tag

    Good morning,

    I believe it would be useful to have a new tag, that does not affect the output you generate, but that can be used to store information within your document. It would only contain a free text field wherein you can type 'whatever you want'. Would be useful for a work in progress ( storing notes), but also when a document is finished, to describe the process for when another user has to do adaptations to a file. I know it is technically possible to use a set tag for this, but I would consider it less confusing…

  12. HTML rendering in PowerPoint

    We understand the Out tag can render HTML when the Type property is set to TEMPLATE. This is not possible in PowerPoint. We need to have this feature in PowerPoint as it is one our core docs requiring HTML.

  14. Ability to view number of pages rendered by environment

    A way to identify the number of pages are executed per environment to determine if we are nearing to allowed license and get alerts to make a decision on increasing the Max Allow usage/Over usage without any disruption to client functionality. Additionally this feature helps in identifying if there is any unwarranted executions happening on a specific environment.

  17. Enhanced Text Form Field Properties for PDF Output

    Please add support for additional text form field properties for use in PDF output. Specifically:
    1. Multi-line fields (text wraps, carriage return support)
    2. Character limits (text can be entered up to character limit)
    3. Scroll long text (vertical scroll bar is automatically added to compensate for text that extends beyond the boundaries of multi-line text fielt)
    4. Auto font size (as a user types in text, the font size changes to fit the text in the box)

  18. Catch exception on expired license

    When using the RESTful Engine with an expired license the application throws a 500 with an unhandled exception. I would suggest you improve your application by catching your exceptions and throwing meaningful error codes and messages to the client.

    I get the exception when calling the version endpoint with an expired license. I tried uploading the Postman response but that doesn't work either. Below is the stack trace.
    [LicenseException: Expired license key ]

  19. Include Rich Text Control in PDF output

    We want to generate PDF forms, so we are using different Word form controls. We found that plain text control is exported into the PDF output as a PDF field, however it has some limitations with text length and wrapping. We are very interested on using rich text controls, since they allow better formatting, longer and wrapped text and inserting tags inside the control to pre-fill the PDF form field.

  20. Escape key to exit the Edit Tag window

    Would be great if we can exit the Edit Tag window by pressing ESC key.
    Minor improvement - agree - but can be frustrating as it is part of basic standard usability.
