[b:29nfymuo]What’s in this update?[/b:29nfymuo]

Modeler has a new feature called Category Item Generation that allows you to configure and automatically generate items for a category in a matrix (QM-20727).

Modeler has a new Solver feature that lets you identify a cell for which to optimize results based on Input Ranges and Constraints, using Linear, Smooth Nonlinear or Evolutionary algorithms (QM-21923).

For usability, Modeler auto-complete has been added for expressions within filters, conditional formatting, chart labels and descriptors (QM-19873, F0071809).

For usability, the Formula Editor in Modeler now shows auto-complete suggestions (including structural components such as matrices, groups and items, categories, functions and recursion keywords), as you type in a formula, or when you press Ctrl+Space (QM-19868), and you can now use the TAB key to insert tabs in a formula line to indent if desired (QM-7734).

Constrain Input includes a new Value type, Dynamic List, that allows you to construct a constraint using a Range, a Select or an Expression (QM-21854).

Qloud now supports creating and using multi-column sort: as you select and apply sort choices, Qloud applies the appropriate sort icons to the columns. (QWC-2533).

Qloud now includes Expand All in the right-click context menu for items you have selected: use this to ensure that any selected, collapsed material is expanded (QWC-2751).

Qloud now supports an improved type-ahead feature similar to Modeler, when there is a drop-down list for a constrained input cell (QWC-2501).

Enterprise Qloud Administrators users now have a Status page that shows the Qloud version as well as the versions of Quantrix Modeler with which the Qloud version is compatible (QWC-2722).

Enterprise Qloud users can now share with groups of users provided groups are set up by an Administrator (QWC-2935).
