Once again – a compilation on all blogs to get you started into the release 1.6! More content will follow in next weeks, I will also accumulate here blogs from others as in the release 1.5 (Design Studio 1.5: What’s New in? A (technical) View).
Update Feb 2016
Some new blogs included which were created by community last months. Good work all!
Taking a while in the release of Design Studio 1.6, I want to give you some introduction to some “bigger” features in the this release. Of course there are also other areas of enhancements, which can be valuable for your scenarios.
Today here the compilation of links for the topics which I could prepare until now. More will follow until New Year.
A new component for highly customizable tables, also with micro charts. You can define a view on your data – independent of your drill down (to some extend of course).

2. Spreadsheet Component
A component which is capable of planning with copy and paste support. Looks like an excel grid for data entry.
Small, but practical feature for offline demonstrations (works only in local mode). You can export any data source to CSV version using the “Initial View Editor” and then use the CSV later for data access. The value is – also filter components are supporting this data source.
With small scripting you can achieve a global filter function. Somply look for scripts on Slit Cell Cell Container – getDataSources(). With this, you can get a list of data sources in the container and distribute the filters on it.
5. Custom Measures and Top N at Runtime
In Context Menu you will find some options for local calculations and top N function which helps you data analysis.
6. Drag and Drop capability for Crosstab
Crosstab is now also supporting the drag & drop.
7. Integrated CSS Editor in Designer
Small, but effective – in designer you can directly edit your CSV file. This reduces effort also in upload to BIP repository.
The complete new mode “M” (called main) which is available when you create new application. Some functions are not supported yet, but you can already try out.
A component for better display of icons, available in main mode.
A small, but interesting technical component to allow additional action menu in the selected context.
Chart component with more flexible configuration options.
