Little things that can make DIAdem more and more user friendly


Here are the product suggestions I have for DIAdem, after going through the pain of creating a single report page:
1. Option to set the background color of a header in a table (not the entire table)
2. Option to prevent the column lines from going through the header section of the table
3. Group objects together in Diadem, (like PowerPoint ?)
4. Make DIAdem font size correspond to MS Office 's font size
5. Option to make individual Column/Row lines bold and set background color for each individual column/row

I like the font idea.


Thanks for your information. Using your first suggestion really works well, and the suggestion about the fonts is much easier now. Thanks a lot..
