            Shawn, looks like you're fond of the mapping stuff :-)


            The two pain-killers are Filter Presets and Legend per Measure.

            Every single our customer came up with the two hemorrhages :-)


            I personally favor everything that helps

            building data structures suitable to the task.

            So Joins on Calcs and DnD Unions are my favs.


            As for dashboard layout options, I was surprised

            by the (strong positive) emotional response to Distribute Evenly.

            Thinking about it later, I would expect this option to ease

            designing of a whole dash layout (think of grids).

            Together with spacing & padding it gives control and flexibility.


            And again it remembered me about early days of the web,

            when we've been doing invisible pixel gifs as white space boxes,

            then came CSS and we've got design grids all of a sudden.

              Hi Jonathan - My team is working on the margins, padding, and borders feature plus distribute evenly.  We'd really like to get your input and perhaps have you take a closer look at what we're planning for version 1.0 of this feature.

                Any update on the Distribute Evenly feature?  I wanted to use it but it doesn't seem to be available.  Did the feature get delayed?

                  Hi Hope,


                  It is announced to be generally available

                  in upcoming version 10.3.

                  Not ready in Beta 1, though.

                    Hi Hope Stiles and . YuriFal--


                    It didn't make it in to 10.2 beta 1, but we expect in beta 2.  I'll post an announcement. 


                    Looking forward to your feedback.

                      Distribute Evenly is in 10.3 Beta 2!  Items added to layout containers get evenly distributed with a single click. It's exposed as a menu option for horizontal and vertical layout containers in Desktop and the Web. 


                      Join the beta and send us feedback!
