Data Designer Improvements

Update 1.13.1 The update addresses Data Designer

In addition to no longer requiring you to have a model open, Data Designer is now accessed through the application's Tools menu. The interface contains a wealth of information to help you get started using the feature, including a brand new Welcome Panel.


Collections of data, previously known as objects, are now called Tables. A table can be given a short description in addition to its name, and every table includes headline information such as the date it was created and the date it was last updated.


Safeguards have been added to reduce the risk of users deleting data by mistake. This includes a double confirmation when deleting tables and their properties, and validation to stop linked tables being deleted until their links have been removed.


Two new property types named Geography and Document have been added, and the New Table Property has been redesigned to make it easier to understand and implement any type of property.


Editing table data is now done using a new interface, which allows you to add and edit rows in a batch. When you commit a batch, all changes will be applied at once. Deleting a row is an independent action that occurs immediately, and does not need to be committed.
