LiveTiles Page Designer Update: January 15, 2020
This week’s LiveTiles product release notes for Page Designer includes a new custom styling editor in the Page Settings, an update to the People Search and People Directory Tiles, changes to our support links in the product, 5-column rows, and many bug fixes. In both V4 Classic and V5 Classic, the support links update will be available. The rest of the release content only applies to V5 Classic.
New Custom Styling Editor
In the Page Settings Custom Code Tab, there’s a new editor that sits on top of the Custom Code Head and Custom Code Body editors. This new editor is for CSS specifically, and any CSS changes in this editor reflect on the Design Canvas as well as the end user view.
People Directory and People Search Tiles
Custom fields selected in the Tile Settings will display in the list of results. This means results can display more than just Name, Job Title, and Location. These custom fields are added through the Additional Fields section in the Tile Settings Data tab.
Another inclusion is the option to hide the About Me that appears when selecting a user from the results. This can be toggled through the General tab of the Tile Settings. Alternatively, if the box isn’t checked and a user doesn’t have anything in the About Me, it will automatically hide from the results page of the user.
Links Updated to New Knowledge Base
We have changed where our knowledge base is stored, and as a result some links were pointing to the old knowledge base location. We have updated those URLs to now point to the correct location.
5 Column Row
New to the Responsive Canvas row layout choices is a 5 column row. When selecting a row in the Design Canvas, click on the Rows tab at the top and select the 5 column row.
Bug Fixes for V5 Classic
|Media Picker||When selecting media in the media picker, content uploaded from deleted users wouldn’t load, and would case the media picker to crash. This has been fixed.|
|Documents Tile||Clicking load more would scroll back to the top of the results when the tile loaded more. Now it will stay in place at the bottom as more results load.|
|Documents Tile||In some cases, a Documents Tile on a page would cause a duplicated scroll bar to be hidden behind the scroll bar. Resizing the page would reveal the duplicate. The duplicated scroll bar was fixed.|
|List Tile||The Office Documents click behavior was always downloading documents instead of honoring the selected setting. Now, they’ll honor opening in app, in browser, or downloading.|
|List Tile||Previously, currency fields in the list weren’t properly formatting in the List Tile. Now, currency will work as expected.|
|Text Tile||Advanced Styles weren’t being applied when the text tile was set to use a header.|
|Text Tile||Collapsible headers would cut off parts of the context menu in the Design Canvas.|
|My List Tile||Custom views set in the SharePoint list weren’t being respected. They’ll now show/hide content and order based on the custom view.|
|RSS Tile||Fixed an issue where the font color was only working on the Carousel Layout.|
|Fixed Width Canvas||The canvas settings were in a different order than the Responsive Canvas. It has been fixed to match Responsive ordering.|
|Image Tile||Image Tile – Solid strings weren’t wrapping in the tile. In IE, it also wasn’t wrapping with word breaks.|
|Image Tile||The Aspect Ratio settings were disabling the Slide Up hover effect. This has been fixed.|
|Twitter Tile||Twitter no longer supports Internet Explorer with their API. We’ve included a message in the Twitter Tile when it loads in Internet Explorer that will also link to twitter.com directly.|
