Novità di think-cell 10

Support for macOS

think-cell now supports macOS in addition to Windows. think-cell works with Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac version 16.8.171111 or later, running on OS X Yosemite (10.10) or later. (learn more)

User Interface

think-cell is now on multiple platforms and we used the opportunity to refresh the user interface. Elements menu icons, context menu icons and several other places have a fresh new look.

Context toolbar with row of chart type icons

Redesigned Data Links dialog. You can select all charts linked to a specific Excel source file with one click, e.g., to update all of them. (learn more)

Data Links dialog

When an update to a linked chart is pending, this is indicated now by a green outline when the chart is selected. Using the contextual toolbar you can update and revert as before, but now you can also directly switch to automatic updates for this chart.

Context toolbar with row of excel link icons

One less click is necessary to change the chart type, because the dropdown list has been replaced with a row of icons representing the chart type to switch to.

Context toolbar with row of chart type icons

Grounded waterfall segments are easier to identify now. The respective icon is displayed even when the grounded segment is not currently selected.

When you select a series in the legend of a scatter or bubble chart, all points or bubbles belonging to this series are highlighted in the chart.

Same scale and axes

Setting two or more charts to the same scale is now persistent, instead of a one-time action. This is signaled by a context menu button to disable the Set Same Scale connection: Active set same scale context menu button. Later changes to the data of one chart will also affect the other chart, always maintaining the same scale. And you can set charts to the same scale even when their axes are not currently displayed. (learn more)

Using the same scale for multiple charts works even with axis breaks. Setting the same scale does not remove existing breaks, and adding an axis break to one chart will add it to other charts using the same scale.

Two charts set to the same scale with an axis break

It is possible to reverse the axis direction by choosing the axis order from the axis' contextual toolbar. Scatter and Bubble charts support an inverted axis, while column, clustered and area charts switch to a flipped chart. In a line chart with two axes, you can even set just one to a reversed order. This helps highlight negative correlations between data series:

Combination chart with one reversed axis

Same scale is also supported for a value-based or date-based X axis. For example, you can easily set two line charts to show the same years, even when the date range covered by the data is different. (learn more)

Two line charts set to the same scale

Scatter and bubble charts now support same scale. Whether the X- or Y-axis should use the same scale is set independently.

Save and send slides

When sending slides, you can use Gmail instead of Outlook. To enable this, you set "think-cell Send With Gmail" as the default email program.

Default progams dialog with think-cell Send With Gmail selected

The Save Slides command uses a dialog which includes your Quick Access folders. The options to choose which slides to include and whether date and time should be added to the filename are at the bottom of the dialog.

Save slides dialog with options to choose included slides and append date and time to filename

When using "Save Slides..." and "Send Slides..." the filename better represents your choices: if you choose to send the entire presentation, the file name does not contain slides numbers, for example. Also, appending the date and time to the filename can be controlled with the respective dialog box option.

Color and style

The font color of text in labels can be chosen and is not reset, even if the label background changes. (learn more)

Chart with colored labels and font color control

The Load Style File command makes it easy to load previously used style files. Initially it contains all styles included with think-cell for easy selection.

List of recently used files for Load Style File command

The color scheme for new charts is always taken from the think-cell style. The most recently used color scheme is now irrelevant when inserting a new charts. If you previously preferred a non-default color scheme, please set the default color scheme in a think-cell style. The setting can be made per chart type.

JSON

Include named text fields when preparing templates for JSON automation. You can then create slides with text content based on JSON input while using the full power and flexibility of smart text fields.

Named Text Field element in Elements menu
  • You can call the JSON automation process from the command line.
  • You can run the JSON automation as a server.
