New features

The following features have been added to this release of Content Station:

Changes

The following change has been made for this release of Content Station:

  • Publication Overview performance improvement. In previous versions of Content Station, the Publication Overview instructed Enterprise Server to clean up the page thumbnails that are stored in the File Transfer folder when a specific action was performed. The downside of this process was that it had to wait for this task to be completed before it could continue, thereby possibly resulting in slow performance. This action has therefore been removed from Content Station.

To make sure now that the File Transfer folder is regularly cleaned up, it is recommended to make sure that the Enterprise Server Job named TransferServerCleanUp is scheduled. For more information, see Working with Enterprise Server Jobs.

  • Publication Overview: sharing URLs. The URL of the Publication Overview now also includes the Filter parameters. This makes it possible to easily bookmark the URL for re-use, or share the URL with other users.

Changes

The following changes have been made for this release of Content Station:

New features

The following feature has been added to Content Station 11.1 build 158:

  • Digital editor: Access Right for controlling if local styling can be applied. An Access Right is now available with which you can control if a user should be able to apply local styling to text in the Digital editor by using the editing tools that appear when text is selected.

The editing tools in the Digital editor

Figure: The editing tools in the Digital editor.

This affects the following styling:

  • Drop shadow
  • Font size
  • Font color

Note: Bold, italic, strikethrough, underlined, uppercase and lower case are always allowed to be applied or cleared because these styles are used to for example emphasize text.

Disable this option when pure channel-neutral articles need to be created and users should be prevented from applying local styling.
