Oct 20, 2023 - We go live!

GraFx Studio, GraFx Fonts & GraFx Media go live!

GraFx Media

rn_icon

GraFx Media is the application on CHILI GraFx that enables you to manage template assets in one central library. Assets in GraFx Media are shared across GraFx Studio & GraFx Publisher. Asset management for GraFx Publisher can still be done in GraFx Publisher but with GraFx Media we offer an improved UX to manage assets more efficiently.

Features

  • You can upload an asset with format .eps, .jpg, .pdf, .png, .psd, .tif & .ai
  • You can create folders
  • You can rename or delete an asset
  • You can filter on format of assets

GraFx Fonts

rn_icon

GraFx Fonts introduces the concept of font families & font styles to CHILI GraFx and brings better brand consistency to CHILI GraFx. Important to know is that fonts in GraFx Fonts can only be used in GraFx Studio. Fonts used in GraFx Publisher are managed in GraFx Publisher separately.

Features

  • You can upload a font style & font family
  • During the font upload you can change the font family and font style
  • You can sort & delete font styles & font families
  • You can access font styles details

2023-10-11_15-31-50

GraFx Studio

rn_icon

This is a big day for GraFx Studio, as it is now available for use in production!

Managing templates and collections and access to the Template Designer workspace are now restricted to admins and template designers. Other users can use templates to create projects with personalized and localized content, but cannot edit the original templates.

Even though it is now in production, GraFx Studio renders are not yet counted, as we want to give our users some time to get used to the new application first. We hope you enjoy it and are curious to hear your feedback!

Features

Actions

Actions can be added to a template to define how it should react to user input. Actions let you show/hide a frame or variable, select a layout, change a variable value, change a color, and much more. Triggers can be set to control when actions should be executed.

 

It was already available as an experimental feature but is now available for production use.

GraFx Fonts

With the introduction of GraFx Fonts, we also introduce the concept of font families and font styles in GraFx Studio. You can now add font families to the Stylekit of your template and the font styles from this family will be available for use in the template.

This is a breaking change! All existing templates need to be updated (GraFx Publisher fonts are not accessible anymore through GraFx Studio and will fall back to Arial). This means you have to upload your fonts to GraFx Fonts, add them to the Stylekit of your template, and apply them again to the text and/or styles. Projects created from these templates are also impacted, it is advised to delete them and start new projects from the updated templates.

Image variable settings

Inside the image variable settings, the template designer can specify the folder inside GraFx Media where the assets for that variable are located. This results in a better experience for the user and prevents access to other assets.

 

For custom media connectors this also enables custom settings for image variables, as defined by the connector. Custom media connectors enable you to use assets from an external DAM system in GraFx Studio templates (this is still in experimental mode).

Improvements

  • Writing actions has been made easier with the introduction of helper functions
  • Renamed triggers that are used inside the action script (This is a breaking change! Please update any action that uses triggers.changedVariable, triggers.changedFrame, etc.)
  • Improved error indications in the list of actions
  • Proper support for undo/redo of actions
  • Improved visual feedback on the canvas when an image is unable to load
  • UI improvements in the Template Designer workspace
  • UI improvements in the Studio UI
  • When integrating the Studio UI you can configure the download and back buttons

Fixes

  • Fixed issue with undo/redo and saving of changes to horizontal text alignment

Sep 19, 2023 - GraFx Publisher

rn_icon

  • Output: Improve error handling of a corrupt PNG during output

Sep 12, 2023 - GraFx Studio

rn_icon

  • Fixed issue with output generation in both Template Designer workspace and Studio UI
  • You can now delete multiple paragraph and character styles, colors, and actions at once

Improvements to Actions (experimental feature):

  • An error icon is shown in the list of actions if the action contains errors
  • We added more flexibility to get and set properties in an action
  • We changed the method name to change the visibility of a frame: .include() is replaced by .setVisible()
    This is a breaking change! Please update any template that uses this method (here you can find an example of how it works). Projects created from these templates will also be impacted, so it is advised to delete them and start new projects from the updated templates.

Sep 12, 2023 - GraFx Publisher

rn_icon

Fixes

  • Fixed failing document preview because of failing preflight checks if a required variable is empty

Aug 30, 2023 - GraFx Studio

rn_icon

With this release, we introduced improvements to the GraFx Studio Smart Template editor

  • You're now able to reorder actions (this impacts the order of execution when multiple actions have the same trigger)

releasenotes

  • Action script is saved even if it contains errors (indicated with a red squiggly line). This is useful when you're in the middle of writing an action and you need to close the action interface to check something

releasenotes

  • Visual improvements to the action interface
  • Rename action trigger to "Selected layout changed"
  • Force action names to be unique
  • Show notification when closing or reloading GraFx Studio with unsaved changes
  • When inserting an image variable in an image frame that contains an image, this image is automatically set as default state for that image variable
  • Dialog to edit a character/paragraph style is not hidden behind the animation timeline anymore
  • Fixed issue with error tooltips
  • Add percentage sign behind line height value
  • Selecting another layout exits text editing mode
  • It's no longer possible to use a URL for an image variable (an asset ID must be used)

We also improved the GraFx Studio UI, the interface for the self-service use-case

  • Automatically zoom to page when another layout is selected by an action
  • Shortcuts to select another tool are disabled to prevent end-users from accidentally going into inline edit mode
  • Shortcut to open the debug panel is disabled
  • Show indicator and block new downloads while download is in progress

Aug 30, 2023 - GraFx Publisher

rn_icon

  • User management in GraFx Publisher has changed to API User management. You are now able to manage GraFx Publisher users in CHILI GraFx platform. Existing users in GraFx Publisher are unaffected, but we advise migrating these users to CHILI GraFx.

releasenotes

CHILI GraFx Platform API

Improvements

  • GET /subscription/id and /subscription/id/renders were migrated to use GUIDs. Now all our endpoints use GUIDs for identifying entities.

Boost Platform Performance

GraFx Publisher comes with more than just a name change, this year it is all about improving platform performance. We've listened to your feedback and revamped our platform infrastructure to deliver blazing-fast file operations, including moving, copying, and deleting. This means you can work efficiently even in large environments! 🚀

Note: Smaller environments might not notice significant changes in performance.

🔔 Heads up: We've fine-tuned the ResourceItemGetTree and ResourceItemGetTreeLevel API endpoints to optimize performance. Now, these endpoints return only the first 10,000 items, ensuring a smoother experience for all users.
