General

All applications have been materialized, so that content can be shown faster. This causes the following changes:

  • You can now search for content without the leading %. Read more here.

  • The layouts are not the same in each view. So you can search for a program and will see the same columns in the results area and in the details area.

  • Your user-specific view of the results and details area can change after the update. If you do not want to lose the familiar list view of columns in the results and details area you created for yourself, we recommend saving your personal views before the roll out of the new version. In order to save your personal views, please proceed as follows:

    BEFORE CreateCtrl ContentExplorer Update

    1. Go to the results area and right click the column header
    2. Select Save layout > File.


    3. Select a destination folder that you can find later.
    4. Enter a name for the view (e.g.: Program_View) and proceed with Save.
    → An XML-File will be saved at the destination folder.
    5. Repeat these steps for all other views that you want to save. For example, if you work with programs and series a lot and have a specific layout of columns there, save your layout for programs and for series.

    AFTER CreateCtrl ContentExplorer Update
    When you first start CreateCtrl Content Explorer after the update, the columns of the results and details area may not be like in the old version. To retrieve your personal view, please proceed as follows:

    1. Right click on the column header.
    2. Select Load layout > File.


    3. Select the destination folder, where you saved the exported XML-File before and select the XML-File you want to import and proceed with Open.
    → Now your personal column layout will appear.

  • If you remove a user from a user group, there will be a delay of 15 minutes until the changes are active.

  • If you rename a parameter (e.g. you rename a Genre), all affected data will be processed. The status of this processing can be seen in the status bar.
    The number means, how many entries need to be processed. As soon as the status bar is green, the details and results area is up to date.
  • A button Materialize database has been added. This button is only accessible by CreateCtrl in case of troubleshooting.
