Performance creating a very large number of invalid pairs
Performance of creating new invalid pairs would lag as the number of invalid pairs in the plan grew to be very large. This is no longer a problem.
Problem updating plan properties with IE
There was an issue where you’d get a file download dialog upon updating plan properties (name and project) with IE browsers. This has been fixed.
HP Quality Center exports (BETA) without auto-scripts
The contents of the step description field was not correct when there was no auto-script defined. This is resolved.
Feedback when saving auto-scripts
Feedback is now a dialog rather than a flash which was too subtle.
There was a rare case on specific browsers where note tooltips would show to the left where no space was available rather than to the right.
Formatting of Excel exports
The formatting of the Excel exports was greatly improved so the default column widths are more reasonable.
Couldn’t create multiple invalid pairs
Fixed this temporary problem.
Export to HP Quality Center (BETA)
<p> In addition to Excel and CSV, you can now export to an Excel file that is designed for importing into HP's Quality Center tool. Click the export link and you'll see a checkbox for HP Quality Center in the export dialog.
HP Quality Center exports are best when you are using auto-scripting (bottom panel in the Create Tests tab). Each paragraph (up to a carriage return) is interpreted as a test step in the export.
Feedback on this new BETA feature is welcome!
UI glitch on Firefox on Linux in the Define Inputs top panel.
For those keeping track, this was a problem that would only be guaranteed to be tested with 3-way strength testing. So something like: Browser = Firefox, OS = Linux, Action = Create a New Parameter
Login page keyboard support
Made the tab order correct and the enter key work on the login page of hexawise.com so you can login with just the keyboard.
New Web browser FAQ entries and compatibility mode info
FAQ entry listing supported browsers and detailing how to turn off IE compatibility mode.
In the IE 7 info dialog box, it now mentions the fact that you may be running in IE 8, but in IE 7 compatibility mode.
Error exporting plans with certain Unicode characters in their auto-script
Thank you for reporting the issue Carlos.
Made the strength description more clear
The “n-way interactions means” dialog now shows an n+1 tuple that is less likely to be covered in explaining what’s not necessarily covered in an n-way strength test.
Resizing issue on an already expanded auto-script panel
There was an issue if the auto-script panel was open when the tests were generated, it would then re-size the input text area to the full panel size and push the preview out of the panel.
Unicode encoding issues in notes and invalid pairs
Some Unicode characters caused issues when used in notes and invalid pairs. This has been resolved.
Ctl-u shortcut key in auto-script changed to ctl-y
The Ctl-u shortcut did not work on many Windows machines.
CSV export files have .csv extension rather than .txt
The more specific file extension on the exports will help it get to the right editing application and the application do the right thing with the file.
CSV escaping of parameter names in combinations.csv export file
These were not properly escaped (double quotes in CSV).
Handling of /login when you are already logged in
Going to /login (lots of people have that bookmarked) redirects you into the app now rather than making it seem like you need to login again.
Styling of the export dialog
Made it more pretty.
Optimized top panel of “Define Inputs” for narrow screens
Tweaks to make sure the display is as effective as possible at low resolutions.
Fixed a UI glitch when expanding browser height
Expanding browser height now properly provides the extra space to the left panel. Before it allocated the space “below” the panel until you refreshed or navigated to a new page.
Excel export has a table of contents
The Excel export is spread across multiple sheets and this was often overlooked by Hexawise users that are not used to multi-sheet Excel files. The first sheet of the Excel file is now a Table of Contents for all the other sheets with links to them.
Header sizing on narrow browser windows
The header has been optimized for narrow browser windows so that the right side navigation will not push off the screen unless it absolutely has to.
Export to CSV
Not everyone has Microsoft Excel of course. You can now export your plans to a zip file containing a CSV file for each section you have data for (Parameters, Tests, Invalid Pairs, Value Expansions and Notes). Simply select CSV in the export dialog (Excel is still the default).
