  1. Justified Alignment With Condensed Font Spacing

    Justified alignment with condensed font spacing is resulting in left alignment instead of justified alignment in the PDF output. A basic template attached to this request can demonstrate this issue.

  2. Windward Tags need to support Tick Mark

    We have bought your software windward tag and about to go live and the pdf needs to mandatorily support tick mark instead of x mark.

    Windward Support Team,

    We have checkboxes to design user choices in Auto Tag Windward form, but when we generate the pdf , windward is not generating a user friendly checkbox UI element as part of pdf generation. Windward puts a x mark what we need is a tick mark

    In the attached image it is indicated very clearly that at the top section where there is a x mark is what windward generates .

    However…

  3. Display header/footer with Out tag templates

    When using an Out tag as a BASE64_TEMPLATE type, the header and footer from a docx used as the template is not displayed on the generated output document.

    Import tags support this functionality, but we would really like to use Out tags for performance.

    Hello Reporter,

    This idea has been reviewed but declined for development. The reason is that we don’t expect implementing this functionality for the Out tag to result in performance increases. Storing these files on a fast file server is more likely to improve the performance of the template. This is our suggestion for improving the performance of this use case. Thank you for your suggestion and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our software.

  5. OfficeToPDF, eliminate Word startup

    Using the OfficeToPDF feature involves significant additional time and part of it seems to involve the startup of Word application. Suggestion is to have a running instance in the background and use it for all related requests/processing.

    Hello Reporter,

    We have reviewed this idea internally but it has been declined for development due to lack of votes over the last year. Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.

  6. Add Excel as a supported data source type

    Backward as it seems, it would support platform-independence.

    I'm developing an app right now for the small business where I work that interfaces with a SQL Server ERP to do unsupported processing before reporting. But, using Excel as a buffer means that if they change to an Oracle ERP I won't have to change the code - just create a query in the new ERP to generate the spreadsheet. Moreover, Excel is supported and working fine in the designer - it shouldn't take much to add it for the engine.

    Hello Reporter,

    This request is one we have received in the past. The reason we do not support Excel as a Datasource is because, in our experience, the lack of enforced structure in the data ends up causing problems in all instances. This leads to a frustrating user experience, and to users, the problem is presented as a Windward issue, not as an Excel data structure and continuity issue. For this reason, our policy on Excel is to not support it as a Datasource. Thank you for your idea, and please submit any other suggestions you have to improve our products.
