Oracle User Productivty Kit (UPK) 12.1 What's New Preview
By Marc Santosusso on Mar 17, 2014
UPK 12.1 is quickly approaching and the UPK Product Management team would like to share with you a few examples of the improvements this customer-driven release delivers. If you've already read the Statement of Direction for Oracle User Productivity Kit (UPK), you will have a good idea of what's coming in UPK 12.1, but today we're going to give you a chance to See It!UPK 12.1 now offers the ability to preview from the Library tab. In addition to being a popular customer request, this feature is a great complement to the Record It! wizard as the content contributed in this way is stored in a dedicated library folder where it can be previewed before an author decides to add it to an outline.
Another hugely popular customer request has been the ability to delete multiple frames in the Topic Editor. We're sure you'll be glad for this improvement in topic-editing efficiency.
UPK's highly customizable document outputs offer tremendous value for the various phases in a project lifecycle, but there's always room for improvement. The Print Area feature In UPK 12.1 allows authors to define the area of each frame that will appear in the action step of the document outputs. This gives authors more control over the visual component of document outputs, making them even more versatile.
UPK 12.1 introduces a completely redesigned Web Page Editor, addressing the most frequently requested customer enhancements including tables, multi-level lists and lots more. Perhaps the most important aspect of these improvements is that they are delivered to both online and document outputs, continuing to fulfill UPK's promise of truly single-source content authoring throughout the content lifecycle.
Last, but certainly not least, is the completely new Screenshot Overlay feature which will allow authors to quickly and easily edit one or more screenshots to effectively mask sensitive data, create additional bubbles of text, add emphasis to a particular area of the screen, and much more.
So, there you have a sneak peek into some of the improvements planned for UPK 12.1, coming to Oracle Software Delivery Cloud very soon. Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
