Fidelity matters - Tel Aviv edition

Wed 22 Apr 2015, 06:43 AM

In case you wonder how collapsed sections render with CoexLinks Fidelity (the kind of thing we have to worry about so you don't have to), remember that whatever we do in Tulsa, we also have to do in Tel Aviv, except backwards in heels, er, I mean right to left.

If you don't read Hebrew (I certainly don't), concentrate on the shape of the section titles... or just notice that the section titles are completely missing in the Notes rendering. No matter how important the section title is for categorization, identification or clarification, the section title just goes poof!  You may also note that in email systems that render less well, such as Outlook 365 where gradient colors are not supported, CoexLinks Fidelity makes sure they degrade nicely to a solid color.

You can try CoexLinks Fidelity just by requesting an evaluation license, installing the software, adding a few lines to the NOTES.INI and restarting the server. No other changes needed. Just add fidelity and stir.

Ben, The Hebrew edition of Notes does have some quirks. Presumably the same paragraph and title would look proper in regular left to right in English.

Nice job coex does with it.

Thanks. Some of it is unique to right-to-left settings (such as the image switching sides), but the loss of the section title happens for all email rendered by the client. If it is rendered by the server, the section title is preserved, though it can be hard to tell it apart as it just has the triangle and text but no way to see where it ends.
