Visualise that old slide is old
With the new Dynamics Version 1.11, the Validator feature for presentations has now been updated to make it possible to enable validator without locking slides.
When an unlocked slide is updated by Validator, the existing slide in the users presentation is kept, and the updated slide is inserted after the existing slide. A noticiation is added to the existing slide to make it clear that it is outdated. This allows the user to copy his changes over to the new slide if he has made modifications to the existing one, and then he can manually delete the existing slide afterwards.
To use this feature, a template needs to be Dynamics Version 1.11.
Excel task pane does not open automatically in some cases
In some cases even if the option "Open task pane automatically" was set the task pane was not being opened after starting Excel.
The problem has been resolved by making a more reliable check to understand if the task pane must be opened or not.
Add-in version 22.214.171.1243
Excel background process never ends requires
When inserting an Excel object into Word, there is an Excel process generated on the background. Such process would not close if Templafy add-ins were enabled, because Templafy would load the task pane on the embedded Excel instance, hence, impeding it from ending. Down the line, this was causing some issues with some 3rd party tools for Excel.
We have now made sure that the Templafy Excel Add-in is not fully loaded when Excel is running in the background so that it can be disposed correctly by Word.
11546 Switch to Newtonsoft.JSON
The parsing of the configuration during the startup of the add-in is now done using Newtonsoft.JSON to improve the loading time
126.96.36.1996 October 16th 2019
11553 Add new custom document property flag for communicating with ExternalSystem
Fetching data from a Document Management Systems (DMS) and filling it into the document creation form now requires a TemplafyRequestExternalSystemData Custom Document Property in addition to the existing TemplafyExternalSystem property.
The existing "DMS flow" is not changed and does not require additional configuration.
