Dear customers,

In the meantime 3 months have passed and Comosoft is pleased to release LAGO version 5.12 with many improvements and new functionalities/features.

With LAGO 5.12, the Flash-based applications have been completely removed and can no longer be activated via the central configuration. We have also implemented many new features in our LAGO Whiteboard module, which enables product and category managers to plan even more effectively and efficiently while having access to review the layout anytime.
These are just a few examples of a number of new enhancements, and we continue to focus on adding additional features in our PIM, DAM, Admin and Proof modules.

Please review our release notes to see what LAGO 5.12 has to offer and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

This is new in North America, but a really good idea…

We are starting a new global release webinar series that will include a preview of all new features. These webinars will be scheduled following the distribution of each newsletter going forward. Please be on the lookout for invitations to join our new release webinars in the coming days.

Best regards from Hamburg and stay healthy

Peter Jozefiak
Managing Director

  • General
    As of LAGO 5.12, all Flash-based applications are no longer available
    and have been completely removed. It is also no longer possible to
    activate them via workspaces or via central configuration.
  • LAGO Whiteboard
    The “Apply Page Layout” function has been intelligently optimized
    and is now even more accurate in determining whether an element
    layout should be applied or not. In the past, only a check for the
    presence of components was performed. This has been extended to
    include additional checks that determine whether an element has
    been moved to a new raster field of a different size or page layout,
    and whether the raster field has been resized by a user.
    Additionally, it is now possible to automatically apply the page
    layout when closing a page (if necessary) due to user changes.
    The function for automatically selecting suitable element layouts
    based on raster field sizes has been extended to also allow for the
    use of element layout categories. This allows for a working method
    where multiple element layouts of different types are available for a
    given raster field size. When resizing the raster field, the system
    now compares which category the current element layout has and
    then assigns a matching element layout of the same category and
    size.
    Element layouts settings have been enhanced by allowing existing
    and placed assets to be used when reapplying an element layout via
    template setting. This setting prevents having user selections and
    additional assets from being placed when decisions have already
    been made regarding which asset to use from the previous selection
    process.
  • PIM
    LAGO PIM has been enhanced with a variety of features:
    • Changes to the sorting of article asset assignments
    • Zoom function for the preview list of documents
    • Display of assigned elements of a document
    • Easier maintenance of proxy equivalence variants
    • Update logos of a project
  • Proof
    It is now possible to change the names of correction mark
    types and to define default values for the “Title” and
    “Description” fields for each type.
  • DAM
    In DAM, it is now possible to add all assets of the light table to
    the shopping cart without selecting the assets beforehand.
  • Admin
    A function has been added to LAGO Scripting to check for the
    presence of a value in a menu.
    Additional functions are now available in LAGO Admin:
    • Configuration of transfer tasks
    • Configuration of translation imports
    • Configuration of structure definition imports
    • Configuration of offline document imports
    • Configuration of asset purchase order imports
    •Sorting the property type assignments for article
