Some attributes missing in Format Cells

Tanushree asked on February 15, 2021

Hello team,
In Flex Monster 2.1 version, “Currency align” attribute was present under “Format Cells” popup.
This is missing in the new version of Flex Monster.
Can this be made available in new FM ?
Attached screenshot for reference.

Hello, Tanushree,
Thank you for your question.
We would like to kindly explain that the currency alignment feature is not missing in the latest version of Flexmonster.
In fact, the currency alignment feature was improved to support a wider range of currency alignments. As a result, it is represented by two attributes: "positiveCurrencyFormat" and "negativeCurrencyFormat".
Please see our Change number formatting using the Toolbar tutorial for guidance. 
Please let us know if this helps.
Kind regards,

Thanks Veera for the explanation, that was useful to know!
I see another difference in old versus new FM version:
In FM 2.1, We could select ‘All Values’ in the dropdown under Format Cells and the change would be applied to all columns.
However in new FM 2.8, there is ‘Default Values’ option in the dropdown and it doesn’t apply formatting to all columns. We have to select each individual column name from the dropdown to apply the changes in all cells.
Can there be ‘All Values’ in new FM Format Cells so as to apply formatting to all columns/cells in one go?

Hello, Tanushree,
Thank you for your response.
We are happy to hear that you found our explanation helpful.
Regarding number formatting:
Our team would like to kindly explain that the "Default values" and the previous "All values" option’s logic is the same: it sets the default number formatting rules to all measures.
Please consider that both "Default values" and "All values" have the lowest priority: if a certain measure already has a specific number formatting rule assigned to it, "Default values" and "All values" won’t override it.
We would like to bring to your attention that in the latest version of Flexmonster, the number formatting UI pop-up has been improved: now it is also possible to select several measures and, therefore, apply number formatting to several measures in one go.
We hope this helps.
Kind regards,
