What’s new in Blackout 1.7.1
Blackout 1.7.1 introduces new functionality for native excel redactions as well as a small handful of quality of life updates aimed at providing additional information for users. Several bugs have also been squashed as a part of this release. Continue reading to learn more about what’s included in this release!
Automated Native Excel Redactions
Support has been added for configuring and creating inverse redactions on native excels utilizing automated jobs. The create native excel redaction job page has been updated with a new button that allows for the specification of inverse redactions. Inverse redactions may be placed in a variety of different ways including row, column, sheet, and cell scoping.
Delete Automated Markups
Deleting a lot of markups from a Blackout job can be cumbersome. No indication is given on when the job is going to finish. With this release blackout now provides a progress indicator letting you know how much work has been completed so far and how much is remaining. In addition to these changes, we have made significant improvements to the speed and performance of deleting markups.
Markup Sets - Has Redaction Flag
With the Native Excel Blackout Update we unintentionally removed this feature due to several performance improvements we made. Moving forward with Blackout 1.7.1, automated image jobs will properly set this flag for the markup set that is used to run the job.
Minor Bug Fixes and Improvements
- Redacting columns with gradient themes in a cell will no longer combine the Blackout redaction or highlight color with the gradient theme
- Significant improvements to load time have been made on the manual native excel details page
- A loading screen has been added when using the “Revert Document” button from the Relativity viewer to indicate that the document is being rolled back
- Warning messages encountered when running an automated job will now persist through consecutive runs of that job until the underlying conflict has been amended
