What’s new in Datylon Release 50

Our main work was more “under the hood” in the last months. It means that with the release R50, we updated our stack to make sure our products remain futureproof. Nevertheless, we also implemented several new features that some of our users requested. We hope you will like them and find them handy as well. Read more about what’s new below.

More legend options

Legends are essential in understanding a chart and they are often an integral part of it. We added the following — legen… wait for it… dary! — improvements:

  • When using the autofit feature in sizing & positioning, you can now choose whether the legend is allowed to overlap the chart or not.
  • The order of the legend list can be reversed if needed to better match the order of the series layers in the chart.
  • The color of the legend icons can now be linked to the color of the series (= encodings like bars, lines…), or the color of the data marks.

Rotated text object

Not enough space for a horizontal axis title? Do you need a rotated, data-driven annotation? Good news! Now you can rotate Datylon text objects and fit them in where and how you want them.

JSON download for your convenience

To help developers build an interface via our API to the Datylon Server, we added the option to download data in JSON format from templates, designs, and workbooks in the web app. Read more about Datylon Server.

There are a few more important improvements and fixes that will make your life a lot easier. Read more in detail about them in the R50 release notes in the Datylon Help Center.

To benefit from the updates made to Datylon for Illustrator you must download the latest version. If you’re an online user, you can also try them in our Datylon web app.

Happy datavizzing! 😉
