What’s new in PlanMaker 2012?
SoftMaker Office 2012 will be released this year. Right now, we are preparing the public beta test which will soon be announced.
To whet your appetite, we will be talking about the new features and improvements in SoftMaker Office 2012 in the coming weeks here at the SoftMaker Blog. Be sure to come back regularly to find out about the latest news.
Let’s start with PlanMaker 2012. It closes the last remaining compatibility gaps with Microsoft Excel:
- XLSX import now also allows seamless access to XLSX files created in Microsoft Excel 2010.
- PlanMaker 2012 can now also save in XLSX format, which means that Excel 2007 and 2010 can access your PlanMaker calculations without taking the detour to XLS format.
- User-defined number formats are now fully Excel-compatible. Even the most complicated user-defined formats will now be imported and exported correctly.
- Finally, we added the format Format/Cell/Text that lets you format cells as text even if you enter numeric values.
- PlanMaker 2012 supports charts not only on worksheets but also on separate chart sheets.
But better compatibility was not the only thing we worked on. We also added new features, such as data consolidation, a command to split cell contents to multiple columns, new chart types, and commands for automatically removing empty rows and duplicate values.
And Excel diehards will gladly find that the commands Copy down and Copy from left are now also supported by PlanMaker.
