What's new in Daylite 4.1?

Daylite 4.1

New Features

Daylite Search has been significantly extended and improved with the following:

  • It now searches Notes, Emails and Forms. Further, it searches all major fields, including details, addresses, custom fields and more.
  • The search popover now displays secondary information which shows how an object matched the search criteria.
  • If the search returns more results than what can be displayed, you can click the "more" button to see additional results. If you still cannot see the object in question, you can click the "Show all results in list" button to display them in the main window list view. Within the main window list view, you can apply further filtering using the filtering popover (magnifying glass).
  • You can specify multiple words separated by spaces in the search field to perform compound searches. This new depth of searching extends to linking popovers throughout the application as well.
  • You can use the keyboard arrow keys to navigate the search popover and in addition specify a global hot key in the General preferences to access the search while in any other application.
  • The search keyboard shortcut has been changed to Command- Option-F to make it more consistent with other apps and accessible from anywhere within the app.

  • You can print calendars by specifying page size, date range, font size, mini calendar and legend. Use Command-P or File -> Print.
  • You can now specify whether to start the calendar on the first day of the week (respecting the first day setting in System Preferences) or looking forward from yesterday onwards.

You can also specify whether the background row color is derived from the category on the object, alternate row color or no background row color. Further, you can specify if you want vertical or horizontal grid lines.

  • Inline FScript is used to extract data from Daylite and JSON is used to transfer that data into the Javascript environment.
  • Reports can have multiple pages. Users can navigate from page to page using hyperlinks with arguments. Hyperlinks can also be used to go to specific objects within Daylite.
