In the last weeks we’ve worked hard to improve the overall performance of articy:draft, especially for those of you working with very large projects (> 100k objects). We know that some of you can’t wait to feel the impact of these improvements, so we decided to make them available as soon as possible. If you want to test the upcoming version 2.3, you are very welcome to install the just released 2.3 BETA build.

Besides performance improvements and minor fixes the 2.3 update also contains some new features:
  • Flow to Word export: You can now export all your branching flow structures into an easily readable .docx-file, which you can e.g. use for voice-over recordings.
  • .XPS export: You can now export your flows and locations to .xps (a vector graphic format), so you can send your visual designs to others more conveniently or print them and decorate your office walls
  • Better usability for editing templates: Get from the property sheet of an object to the template editor with just a single click.
Click here to see a more detailed overview of the recent changes.

But please keep in mind: This is a beta version and it’s likely that you find a bug or two. So, thanks a lot to everybody who is helping us to hunt them down!

This announcement informs you about the most important changes and improvements introduced by version articy:draft 2 SE version 2.2. (articy:draft SE - Upgrade to articy:draft 2 SE DLC required)

You can also find a detailed change list here.

New! "Conditional flow logic"

The most significant set of improvements concern modeling logic in the Flow using variables, conditions and instructions.

Global Variables
In a new area in the project structure called “Global Variables” you can create variable sets (i.e. “Quest Variables”) and fill them with variables, sometimes called “flags”. Variables can be Boolean (true / false) or Integer numbers.

You can use those variables in condition scripts or assignments.

New flow nodes: Conditions / Instructions
To use conditional branching points or pieces of script code in the Flow, you can add these two new node types. The text fields for conditions and instructions support syntax highlighting and auto-completion.

Make sure to switch this on in the Flow-settings for migrated projects.

Conditions and instructions as property types in templates
A new “script” property type allows you to use text fields for scripting (with syntax highlighting and auto-completion) in your templates.

Circular node connections
You can now connect a node’s output pins with its input pins to create loops.
