New Infographic Template in the U.S.
When analyzing within the U.S., you can employ a new infographic template, “Dominant Tapestry” to see key demographic indicators for the dominant Tapestry segment in the study area. This new infographic provides a detailed description of residents, their lifestyle choices, what they buy, and how they spend their free time.
Projects Panel Filter
Do you work with many layers and need to reduce visual clutter? With the September 2021 release, you can focus solely on the layers or categories you need in the Projects Panel by a new filter, collapse and expand feature.
Custom Text Fields
Ever need to add custom information to infographics as you share them with team members? You can find a new option to add a custom text field when creating a custom infographic template. When you run the infographic with text editing enabled, you can now add custom text before exporting the infographic to PDF. For example, the following screen shows how to enable the text editing panel in an infographic during an edit mode (on the left). The image on the right shows the exported PDF of the infographic with the custom text.
