DF Studio is pleased to announce that the following changes have been deployed to all accounts throughout this past December. Up-to-date information on the latest releases can always be found in the Release Notes listing.

Enhancements

Metadata
  • Primary asset identifiers (Asset Name and DFS ID) are now included any time metadata is exported to a text file.
Asset Workflows & Organization
  • Project and Collection views have been updated to incorporate continuous scrolling, for a quicker, more seamless viewing and editing experience.
  • The navigation performance in 1-Up view has been re-engineered for faster navigation with no delay in between the display of asset previews when moving rapidly through images.
  • The loading of thumbnail previews when scrolling through proofsheet views has been accelerated, so that previews load immediately after scrolling stops.
  • The performance of the proofsheet when filtering or changing views has been enhanced to make operations more immediately responsive.
  • Visual refreshes have been applied throughout many views, to add clarity and consistency and make workflows more intuitive.

Bug Fixes

Messengers
  • Corrected a misconfiguration which caused the default asset sort in Messengers to be different from the intended (filename alphabetical) sort.
  • Provided more intuitive labels for the watermark position when configuring watermarked previews in an outgoing Messenger.
  • Fixed an issue which caused the “Messengers” button to be omitted from the Project Inspector for Projects from which Messengers had been sent.
Selects & Approvals
  • Corrected a bug which caused the Approvals View display to ignore the specified background color from the Viewing Preferences.
  • Addressed an issue in which the Approvals View display rendered asset filenames illegible in List View.
Metadata
  • Restored the “Back” and “Skip” buttons to the Metadata overlay.
  • Removed the confirmation step when exporting metadata to a text file.
Uploads & Assignments
  • Addressed an issue which could cause “placeholder” icons to remain in the place of asset previews after the completion of asset uploading and ingestion.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the “Upload” button to appear in folders where a user did not have permissions to allow uploading files.
Asset Workflows & Organization
  • Corrected an issue which caused the buttons in the Add to Collection overlay to remain disabled when adding assets to a new Collection.
  • Fixed a problem in which the view failed to refresh after adding items to the current Collection from the Bin.
  • Addressed a bug which presented sorted assets in the wrong order in some cases, requiring users to reload the page.
  • Resolved a problem which caused Collection assets to remain in rearranged order after canceling a rearrange operation.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the workspace to appear empty after moving assets from the Bin.
  • Changed the label in the Collection Inspector from “Owner” to “Creator” to make it clearer that this refers to the user who created the Collection, and does not indicate anything about the user’s past or present Collection permissions.
  • Restored the proper operation of the “next page” keyboard shortcut when navigating through assets in a Project or Collection.
  • Fixed an issue which could cause the wrong asset to open in 1-Up view when double-clicking a thumbnail preview.

  • Addressed issues which affected the reliability of moving around the 1-Up preview when the zoom tool was activated.
  • Restored the buttons to Files View for selecting assets by name or finding assets within a Project or Collection.
  • Corrected a problem which could cause an error after creating a new Collection from the Collections overview screen.
  • Fixed an issue which could affect the appearance of the Project Inspector when selecting Projects from a Library view.
  • Addressed a problem in which the view did not scroll to keep the user’s selection visible when advancing the selection using keyboard commands.
  • Resolved an issue which caused the “thumbnails per page” setting to persist after the setting was changed, requiring users to reload the page.
  • The improper “Delete Project” title bar has been corrected on the “Remove Collection” overlay.
Collaboration
  • Fixed a bug which caused the visual annotation drawing tools not to behave as expected near the edges of larger 1-Up previews.
  • Addressed an issue which prevented the resizing functions from working properly in the visual annotations “Move” tool.
  • Resolved a bug which prevented creating a new Note in the Notes tab.
Publishing
  • Corrected an issue which caused the button for re-enabling a Web Portfolio to appear in the Collection Inspector for Collections that had never had a Web Portfolio configured.
