What’s New in Trifolia 2.16?

Released on Thursday, Oct 23, 2014

Retired Template Status

Trifolia now supports a “Retired” template status, representing a template that should no longer be used. The Retired status is only used on templates that have been versioned. The Retired status omits the template from the main body of the MS Word document and includes an additional appendix table listing all retired templates and their descriptions. Upon retirement, a template’s description should be modified to describe why the template was retired.

After selecting the “Retired” status, you will be reminded that the “implied template” reference and all constraints in the template will be automatically removed. This ensures that template references do not linger in the retired template, inadvertently causing additional templates to be included in the exports.

View Template and Implementation Guide

The “View Template” and “View Implementation Guide” screens have been improved for consistency and visibility of clickable links.

Export Schematron Inferred Templates Option

The option to exclude inferred templates from a Schematron export has been reintroduced. Implementation guides that repeat constraints from implied templates in the implying template need this ability so that validation messages aren’t duplicated.
