Heretto UI

New

  • To help you properly reuse your variables we've added a context map selector in the single topic editing mode.

Fixed

  • The more the merrier! You can continue to add an unlimited number of new reviewer accounts up to your account’s reviewer limit, if applicable, even when you’ve already used all of your licenses. Now your authors and editors can get the feedback they need.

Content Manager

Enhanced

  • We were silly and removed the Location link in the Resource Drawer. What a mistake. We've added it back.

  • Using / or \ in the search bar was breaking the search. No longer. Use those slashes all you'd like.

  • When downloading a folder or release you can download as many as 15k topics! That says a lot because you no longer have to reconsider your workflows.

Fixed

  • You've annotated an image in your topic editor. Worry not about a broken link icon. You can happily publish your documents with annotated images and all your content will accurately show.

  • Looking for that perfect image? To add or replace a new image, once you've uploaded it the image will be automatically selected in the Select File window. No need to browse your entire list of images. Simply choose Select.

Topic Editor

Enhanced

  • The message block has a fresh look. When you apply a message block in the topic editor there is a fabulous refashioning in style and text presentation.

Message block styling in topic editor

Fixed

  • We now fully support specialized tables in our topic editor table tools.You can count on correct structure and no more complications with editing!

  • The result of the local links you created in the Content Editor broke and could not be accessed. We exterminated that bug. Now the local link you create will resolve and let you add context to your content.

Map Editor

New

  • We make it hard to forget. When you set the element name settings on a map under the gear icon, your preferred choices will be remembered.

Fixed

  • You dragged a new topic into a sub-map in the map editor and a <data> element was inserted. How inappropriate! So we fixed the bug. When you drop a new topic into a submap a <topicref>, <mapref> or other more appropriate element is inserted.

Publishing

Enhanced

  • Docusaurus publishes in multiple languages are now delivered in separate zip packages, which only makes sense.

  • When you publish content using Cloud DITA-OT you can select the Debug publish check box and the output file will contain your source content in a debug publishing job.

Added

  • We've added the ability to configure additional parameters for PDF Generator publishing.

  • Docusaurus builds are now handling glossary terms as tooltips in the final output.

Fixed

  • Docusaurus now correctly builds maps that are using glossary terms as keyrefs.

  • We've squashed a bug that was causing an internal server error message when trying to preview a publish from the publishing scenario configuration interface for the PDF Generator.

  • Need to render the same topic multiple times with small changes in the content? No problem. When you use branch filtering with reuse and conditional processing PDF Generator will render your content exactly no matter what conditions you apply.

Checking In

Hi. How is everyone? We know the past couple of years have been tough. We've all been busy. Life has seemed extra chaotic for most of us.

We want you to know that we're with you.

Take care of people, and yourself. Help your colleagues. They'll appreciate it. Ask for help if you need. That's an okay thing to do.

Let's all keep our heads up. There are great things ahead.

Branching

Fixed

  • For some reason, the "include linked files" box wasn't checked by default. It is now, and so if you don't want to include dependencies when branching, you'll need to uncheck that box.

Fixed

  • Staying on top in a business is key. When you need to get the job done using the Merge Editor in a small screen space, we fixed the "Merge selected changes" button so it no longer shifts down from the main top bar.

Assignments

Added

  • Now that we've added a new configuration for assignments, managing your schedule has never been simpler. In the assignment creation pop-up you can create custom recurring tasks.​

  • Whether for a single end-user or a group, we make it easy to create workflows. When you assign steps to a coworker or a circle of team members, no worries. Everyone in the workflow process will be notified.

Fixed

  • Notify fields in Assignments apparently had gone on vacation. They're back now and excited to work.

  • Links to assignments weren't routing users to the Assignments UI. Thanks to a great team of developers, they are once again routing correctly.

Activity Interface

Fixed

  • Activity Logs for Archived or Resolved Comments should not report the person who wrote the comment, but instead the person who archived or resolved the comment. We fixed this bug and you can say farewell to Activity Log inconsistencies!

Verifications

Enhanced

  • All dependencies and all their verifications can be viewed in the map Verifications list.

Added

  • You can view relevant table headers with columns in Recurring Assignments.This handy table lets you glance over your recurring tasks and their interval. Managing your schedule has never been simpler!

Figure 14. Recurring Assignments with Relevant Headers and Columns

  • In the Recurring Assignments view you have the option to delete a specific assignment from the list. You can easily control future assignments and remove the things you don't need.

  • When you create a Recurring Assignment we've added a Show recurring assignments check box that lets you keep only those assignments in your workflow that support recurring.

Figure 15.
  • In assignment verifications you can specify a grace period for your topic that will start counting once it’s been verified. Your topic doesn't need to be re-verified during the assignment, eliminating time wasted re-reviewing!

Fixed

  • This squashed bug is easily verifiable. When you're a member of a group, you have the option to create a new verification for any file and assign it to your group. This means that anyone in the assigned group can now Provide ad-hoc Verification.

Search

  • Hard to find? We increased search tab performance when loading large taxonomies. This makes finding what you need easier to find and intuitive to use. We enjoy making your life easier.

Localization

Enhanced

  • On the "Locales" tab you can review the various locales present for a file. You also have the ability to upload new Locales. ¡Totalmente impresionante!

  • When you create a source package and you've selected All Resources or Only Changed Resources, that information is provided in the job summary.

  • When you create an XLIFF package and you’ve selected the Include Existing Translations check box, that information is provided in the job summary.

  • When you create a media package and you've selected the All Media or Only Changed Media files option, that information is provided in the job summary.

Fixed

  • Updated locales for binary files, such as images, are reflected correctly in the Locales UI.

Miscellaneous

Fixed

  • We've rebranded! Unfortunately, new account emails were still sent from no-reply@easydita.com. They're now sent from no-reply@heretto.com.

  • Topichead wrapper elements now include the lang attribute.
