Often you'll find yourself changing back and forth between the two – a time-consuming and sometimes cumbersome task. Although you can freely undock and redock the tool windows in the Designer (did you know?) you still have two windows that basically tell one story – the story of your report.
In version 20, we'll make these windows much easier to work with and much more powerful.
The "Objects" and "Report Structure" windows are unified in one new "Objects" tool window. This greatly simplifies working with complex projects as you don’t have to switch between the two windows anymore at all. The whole project is available at a single glance.
On a side note, this increases the usability of the former "Objects" window as the new window now features a toolbar for clipboard operations and changing the order in which objects are printed.
This feature is also needed to lay the foundation for a much bigger feature I’m going to talk about in the next feature focus.
