Presto 6.1 is now available for download from our customer portal, myBCDsoftware.com, and our public website. This release contains several new features including a collapsible mobile side menu, the ability to reconnect after losing your Internet connection and various Visual Editor enhancements.
Slide-Out Mobile Function Key Menu
You can maximize screen real estate on mobile devices by configuring the side function key menu to collapse and expand on mobile devices. This is consistent with what users experience when using mobile applications in their daily lives.
Reconnecting after Lost Internet Connection
If you’re accessing your Presto application in a way that’s susceptible to connectivity fluctuations (perhaps while walking around a warehouse with a tablet) you may find your sessions hang. In Presto 6.1, if you try to take an action on a screen while your connection is down, Presto will prompt you to reconnect your Internet session, giving you the opportunity to continue where you left off.
Visual Editor Improvements
Presto 6.1’s Visual Editor includes the following enhancements:
- Improvements to adding tabs to screens: We’ve simplified the process of adding tabs to screens and breaking up the content between them. For example, tabs automatically ‘snap’ together so you no longer have to manually align them. Presto’s Visual Editor also supports vertical tabs (stacked along the left or right side of a screen).
- Inline editing: If you’re adding text constants or containers in the Visual Editor, you can now edit the text inline.
- HTML5 input types: Presto now supports HTML5 input types such as email, telephone and date.
