"Refresh-Layout - Button" for Presentations


We switched by end of last week to the 12.5. Version, which brought the number scaling functionality. As a workaround we used in the last 2 years a TEC_Divisior-Entity which enabled us already to have a kind of number scaling feature —> BUT: every DataView contained a lot of blocks just for making this possible. With the new version we did a rebuild and changed all dataviews. The problem is now for our approx. 100 presentations —> they are not getting this change and it would be great if there would be a possibility to update the layout of data views in existing presentations to get the most recent configuration without setting up all the slides in presentations again.

    like the idea.

    I would even propose to have two kinds of presentation types:

    • one for screens which will not be updated if the original screen is changed
    • one where screens are always updated according to the original screen

    Whenever I change smth on a screen which is used in presentations, I always need to check whether the presentation took those changes as well. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't (haven't really found out when it does…).
