    Hi,

    When will MIP introduce a simple and streamlined process to add a theme from the explorer window?

    The current process is a long winded and out-dated in my opinion.

    It should just be a right-click in the explore window on the layer and add the theme (not considered or recognised by your developers to be a priority?)

    Cheers, Mike

    I like this idea, Mike.

    I'd also like to add a link to your idea on this in the Precisely Ideas.

    How much work would you think we need to put into the initial dialog to create the theme?
    Basically, we could just let you select the type of theme and the column(s) to use.
    After this, most of the possible changes could be controlled from the Theme tab on the ribbon.

    Hi Peter,

    As you suggested Peter - works well for me.

    Being able to selected the layer in the explorer window, then right click and select theme, and then selected the theme: type; and column - compete!!

    As you mentioned: Basically, we could just let you select the type of theme and the column(s) to use.

    Selecting the theme from the tool bar, then looking through the long list of files for the correct layer (old-hat) seriously, it needs a revamp!

    Cheers, Mike
