What’s New in Layer: May 2022

1. New and Improved Table View

Table view is now faster and more responsive. We have updated Table View to be the default view used in categories (replacing Gallery View). By default, the default Table View will display the first five fields in your category.

2. Added multi-select support to Person Fields

Person fields now allow for selecting multiple people. Newly added users will still receive a push notification.

3. Simplified keyboard navigation in Text Area Fields

When tabbing between Text Area Fields, the field will receive focus before the text area controls

4. Toggle sorting of Lookup values in Document View

In the block settings for a Lookup Field in Document View, we’ve added an option to sort the Lookup values alphabetically. By default, the values will be sorted by their corresponding Related Element Field value (for manual Lookup) or they are unsorted (for Auto-Lookup).

5. Added bulk edit support for Select fields

Select Fields can now be updated in bulk in Table View.

6. Revit 2023 Support

The latest version (3.2.0) of Layer’s Revit Add-in supports Revit 2023. Visit https://layer.team/download to download this version.
