  1. Support Mirosoft Word DOCM file format and Macros

    We have many Microsoft Word template with Microsoft Word Macros in them (Word > Developer > Macros).
    The templates are saved in DOCM file format.
    Currently, Windward Report Designer supports using the DOCM templates with Windward Report Designer, to create outputs successfully and to save the output in DOCM file format, but the macros are not available in the output.
    Windward Report Designer shall support Microsoft Word DOCM file format and Macros, so that the Macros can be run after output generation.

  2. Page Break advanced property

    Develop a Page Break advanced property for the ForEach tag that does not start with the first iteration but rather with the second iteration so that if the ForEach tag is at the beginning of the document template, a blank page does not render for that first iteration.

  4. Allow entering Array-type Input Parameters

    It would be great if we could add an array-type variable of either String or Number type as an input variable. This could be used to filter datasources with a IN statement, for example.

  5. Ability to output equations in WindWard

    In the latest version of WindWard it's not possible to output Microsoft Equations, in the output .DOCX file the places where the equations should've been are left empty.

    Ideally, the equations are shown in the generated output.

  7. Scatter chart - same size for markers in plot area and in the legend

    Hello,

    Right now when working with a scatter chart in Word if you have different sizes for the markers they will be shown as different sizes on the plotted area, but in the legend the marker sizes are the same size.

    In the attached picture 1 and 2 have different sizes on the plotted area and in the legend they are the same size but smaller. Right now only marker sizes 3 and 4 behave normally (the marker size is the same on the plot and in the legend).

    I was told that this is a known limitaion.

    Can you…

  8. Faithful chart element rendering to pdf and html

    Faithful reproduction of Word rendering of charts for pdf and html, without using the Word rendering option. In particular, support all the series and series point label options, also the ability to add a "Picture or texture fill" into series "data label shapes" as a fill.

  9. Better ways to format X-axis in a Word chart

    In a Word chart I can't format the X-axis easily. More formatting options would be nice to have.

    For example, sometimes our data starts from 10 and then it increases by a factor of 10, so 10, 20, 30 and so on. In the screenshot that I attached you can see in black the way WindWard displays the X-axis and in red the way I would like to display it.

    Also, there's no way to automatically change the gap between labels so that they would always be separated nicely, no matter how long or short the data on the X-axis…

  10. Allow for dynamic drop down based on amount of returned rows

    Currently, when a drop down is created in a cell (static or dynamic) the drop down is removed when the report is generated.

    Either add a Windward drop down function (ideal), or support Excel generated drop downs.

    Another helpful addition to this would be to make the drop down options distinct (optional, chosen by user).

  11. Configure tags to accept xml inputs with different root elements

    Is it possible to configure Windward Designer tags to accept xml inputs with different root elements? For example, the sample template would produce valid output if the root element was "John" or "John_202205". In other languages, you do not always need to specify the root element. For example, you can use // to “ Selects nodes in the document from the current node that match the selection no matter where they are.”

  13. Faster opening Windward templates (data source timeout)

    We often use XML data sources hosted by a local development server. When this server is not available (not started or not a developer machine), WindWard Designer takes an big amount of time to figurfe out the resource is not available. As a result, a document takes about 2 minutes per data source to open. Our documents often have 2 data sources making it 4 minutes, etc.

    See video:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/q52y77v6yeh6eyk/4MinutesToOpenWindwardTemplate.mp4?dl=0

    The attached document is the one used in the video, but it occurs with any document of which the datasource points to localhost while the server is not running.

  16. Add the ability to format output data in Chart Tag

    This would be similar to the formatting that can be applied to an Out Tag through the Properties tab. This would help to format data that's displayed in a Chart data table fields.
