Release notes sprint 73, 74 & 75

Which features have been worked on/added to Lytho since the latest release?

Because of the holiday season, we have combined the features of sprint 73, 74 & 75 into one single release.

New UI for the Lytho settings

In the past sprints, we've worked on a new Lytho settings UI. The homepage and Asset manager had been given a facelift in the sprints before, so we couldn't leave the settings behind.

Besides giving it a prettier look, another big change is that we've switched from the tab structure to a more sleek and clear index where settings are grouped in a more organized way.

Quitclaim visibility and publishing restrictions automatically applied to the linked assets

We are excited to release the feature where publishing and/or visibility date, set on a quitclaim document, will automatically be applied to the assets linked to that quitclaim. No more need to copy all restriction dates from a quitclaim to all its linked assets as Lytho will do it for you!

Translations for templates

Lytho can be configured to your own preferred language. However, the templates created in Lytho are not translated by default and will always be visible in the language, chosen by the template manager. To solve this problem, we are introducing the translations for templates. Translations for the template name, description, default field input, and output name can be imported into Lytho in two ways.

1. The template manager can export all current translations to an Excel file, fill in the translations and, import the file again to make translations available for all template users. 

2. By using the Lytho settings Translations page to fill in all the missing translations.

Both ways are demoed in the video below.

Hide template fields for the user creating a publication

In addition to the translations for templates, Lytho template input fields can be hidden from users since the latest release. When creating a publication, hidden fields will always show the default input, set by the template manager. But because this default input can be translated with the template translations import, you can use one single InDesign template, to create Lytho templates for multi-language purposes.

To hide a template field, go to the fields tab in the template settings, expand a template field and select the checkbox 'Hide for end-users'.
