Bug Fixes

  • Addressed a longstanding issue which caused Messenger links to expire four hours earlier than intended.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented some buttons in Mobile Messengers from performing their intended functions.
  • Corrected a configuration which caused confusion when clicking buttons in a Messenger preview. Clicking these buttons now displays an appropriate notification regarding their functionality in preview mode.
  • Resolved an issue which caused the View Menu to function improperly when viewing a Messenger’s assets as sent.
  • Addressed a problem which caused incomplete entries on the Activity page when Messengers were expired before links had been sent to recipients.
  • Addressed an issue which could create confusion as to whether view-only metadata fields were editable in Mobile Messengers.
  • Added visual adjustments to clarify when metadata fields are disabled for input.
  • Clarified the controls in the Metadata Inspector with a slight visual update.
Uploads & Assignments
  • Fixed an issue which interrupted the ingestion of some NEF files, resulting in incomplete preview images in DF Studio or difficulty downloading files.
Asset Workflows & Organization
  • Corrected a problem which had suppressed the intended behavior when switching to Thumbnails view from 1-Up: the last-viewed asset from 1-Up view is now highlighted in the Thumbnails grid immediately after switching.
  • Resolved a bug which could interrupt the double-click to open an asset in 1-Up view from Thumbnails view in specific configurations.
  • Addressed some issues that could cause unnecessary additional data loading when selecting an asset.
  • Corrected a bug which could cause unexpected behavior when interacting with separate DF Studio Projects in separate tabs or windows of the same web browser.
  • Fixed a problem which prevented the timestamps in the Asset History from updating automatically.
  • Resolved an issue which caused the “Captured” date in the Asset Inspector to display incorrectly in some situations.
  • Clarified the meaning of controls in the search overlay.
Security & Protection
  • Fixed a problem which would prevent VSP from being displayed on video previews played in full-screen mode.
  • Resolved an issue which could cause the VSP overlay on video playback to interact unexpectedly with other elements on the page.
