New in4D v19R6


4D Write Pro.

Better with Every Release.

Whether for catalogs or inventories, automatic document generation is now greatly simplified with the possibility of defining a “datasource” for the tables of 4D Write Pro, which will automatically feed the rows of these tables.

This allows end-users of your application to design or edit templates that will be filled automatically with data.

To help mitigate the downside of broken images, 4D Write Pro is shipped with a new view option, enabling you to make empty images invisible.
