We at DF Studio are always on a mission to improve. In the spirit of progress, we strive to develop groundbreaking new features in each software release, and, sometimes, even in between development cycles. Thanks to suggestions from our clients, we were able to add new features as well as address some pesky bugs in this month’s point release.

Some DF Studio users may have noticed that these changes have already taken effect. For a full description of the features and fixes in this release, please read on and see what we’ve been up to.


  • To better assimilate our communications into our corporate clients’ branding and structures, we’ve redesigned our outgoing emails. For example, thanks to some helpful feedback from real users, all Messenger notifications now highlight the sender’s messages and instructions above any other accompanying information.
  • Single-Sign On (SSO) enabled clients now have the ability to create local Users for their accounts. This is helpful for organizations with users outside of their SSO authentication.
  • We’ve added “Source Project folder” to our menu in the Text Export feature, allowing users to export more thorough, detailed lists of assets and their groupings.
