load provisional values for all variables in Designer Print menu

In the Designer provisional values can be assigned to variables.
For testing it would be helpful to have an option in the Print menu to load the provisional values for all variables.
And also a function in the Dynamic Data Manager to export the provisional values as a “.values” file would be desirable.

christian,

You can already export all variable information to an XML structured ".NLVR" file via Dynamic Data Manager > Export Variables. This includes all Initial Values and Provisional Values for variables. What other functionality do you need here? It is not ".values" format, but surely you can extract information easily. :)

Mytch

Hi Mytch,

LMS requires the ".values" format for SampleValues. In order to use the provisional values as SampleValues in LMS, export to “.values” format would be helpful.

The provisional values in the Designer are a great thing. What we are missing is an option in the Print menu to load the provisional values for all variables. This would allow to test label printing to different printer models with provisional values during designing the labels. With such an option issues could be identified earlier and much easier and testing efforts would be reduced significantly.

Regards,
Christian
