Since the introduction of our feature portal three years ago, it has become an important driver for our innovation. If you filter for "available in latest version", you'll find some fourty features we've built into the product on your request. So here comes a big "thank you" to everyone participating! Your help, effort and ideas are more than welcome anytime. Of course, we've implemented some of the top voted demands into LL24. One of them has been to enable the customization of the preview window's look and feel.

And you can customize the selection frame's color, style, margin and rounding. A couple of additional customization options for the thumbnail bar are also available. The result could then look like this:



This way, your reporting tool can be embedded even more seamlessly into your existing application. Thanks for the useful suggestion - delivered :)!
