Wouldnt it be possible to record all Data used to create an LL File? So that you can reprint every LL File as it was when the Print happend? This would enable LL Files to be reprinted in all Export Formats. Callbacks would be Stored with their respective Values (Wmf File...

We're looking at a way in LL24 to embed selected export results into the preview. While it requires a multi-pass approach at print time, it enables exactly the features requested here: e.g. save to Word from the standalone viewer or use the Storage-Conversion-API to .ConvertTo(@"c:\temp\MyDoc.docx"); Promoting this request to "planned" state.
Planned
We would like to have new functions or properties to customize the following things of the preview control. - add option to change the standard width of the thumbnail bar - change the highlight color (blue) of the page thumbnail - change the highlight color (blue...

In the backlog for LL24. Promoting to planned state.

I would like to see a crossreferencing function within the designer. This would be helpful to find out - while the Designer is running - if a Variable or Field is used somewhere in the LL Document. Result could be highlighted in the Layout when used directly or in expressio...

Now that user variables, can be rearranged and copy/pasted, it seem that only thing missing is possibility of renaming them.  That would be handy. Now I have to copy its value, create new one, give it the value and remove the old one. And of course open file and do Find/repl...

Another update - we'll likely support Search & Replace, so I consider this request fixed. A nice addition later on may then be to automatically do a S&R, however that's the easiest part of getting the job done :).
Planned
The collapsible/expandable areas feature is a great addition for report containers. However, my data is flat and based on groupings. I'd appreciate a way to collapse my groups as well, i.e. only the group header and group footer are displayed initially and the group header wou...

It would be extremely helpful to convert preview files to XLS / XLSX and DOCX. These are, according to documentation at the time (for whatever reason) no valid target formats.
Export  |  8/1/2016  |  1 Comment(s).
combit - Jochen Bartlau commented
LL24 will have a way to optionally embed other export formats into the preview. Files created this way will also support a conversion to any of the embedded file formats, including DOCX and XLSX. I'll blog about this feature shortly.
Planned
I would like to use nested tables in table headers and group headers, containing data of a main table other than the current table. Currently i'm doing this by faking headers and group headers with data rows. Because of this, i'm losing some benefits of header lines, like ...
Designer general  |  9/18/2017  |  1 Comment(s).
combit - Jochen Bartlau commented
On the backlog for LL24. NB: for group headers, this will work just nicely. For table headers (which are usually repeated on each page) you'll run into trouble as soon as the content of the nested table exceeds one page. However, these cases will most likely be handled via a separate table in the report container.
Planned
The storage API is missing a counterpart to LlStgsysAppend. Please add a LlStgsysSplit function that extracts a page- or job index range to a new preview file. This would make the storage API complete and you would be able to freely rearrange the contents of preview files.
API / Components (.NET, VCL,…)  |  10/20/2016  |  1 Comment(s).
combit - Jochen Bartlau commented
We'll introduce an extension to the LlStgsysConvert-API in LL24 that will allow to extract page or job ranges. You'll also be able to delete single pages and jobs from a preview file.
Planned
Dear combit Team, would it be possible to show the page numbers in the sketch bar as an overlay? I think of something similar as in PowerPoint (see screenshot). Thanks a lot in advance. Best regards, Oliver Waibel

Please allow the export of PDF files into a .NET memorystream. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.memorystream Today we loose a lot of performance as we first have to export the PDF file on disk, read it into memory afterwards to extend the PDF file metadata...

End users often have to operate with two viewer controls. One which can use your LL reports and a second one to view PDF files. This mostly results in different settings, icons, look&feel and even different ways to save, print, mail and so forth. Wouldn't it be great if the...

If an object is to big for the choosen pageformat List and Label generates endless pages and never stops. It would be good, if List and Label recognise the problem and stops.

Anyone voting on this suggestion - please add details in which cases you're affected by the behavior. This will help us identify the scenarios that need to be fixed.

It would be nice, if the Hyperlink$() Format also works in PDF-Files. At the moment the pdf-reader can like real urls like www.google.de But if you create a link like Hyperlink$(Articlenumber, "www.google.de") it does not work.

This is one of the few still missing export formats.

The quality of the topics varies a bit - it seems newer APIs are documented in greater depth whereas older APIs are sometimes not really documented at all. I understand that the methods of the Core object are seldomly used, however having a sample for all "central" methods and...

We've put considerable effort into improving the help quality in LL21, adding new samples, chapters on web reporting, documenting all relevant web classes etc. However, this is an ongoing effort, so I'll leave this suggestion open for voting anyway.
