I agree. @Liz_Lynch @praveen can we have a bit more detail about these changes? Ideally including video and or images. Especially for the UI stuff. A few of us have been here on appsheet for years and we sometimes struggle to understand what you’re referring to. So beginners will have no chance.

You bet!

Here is an image of the slider UI showing the slight change to the look and feel.

Let me track down more information about the Save issue! :slight_smile:

O I C, nice. Did the issue where the slider increments caused a Valid_IF on the number get sorted? So if the slide was in increments of 5, the number had to be divisable by 5

My recollection is that was fixed some time ago. I’ve not tried recently to confirm, though.

Thanks for sharing screenshot, I got it!
Also we see this over our apps.

Just to feed additional thought to improve user experiences, if user double clicks or tap quickly twise over the number label of this slider, user can manually type number into it. As far as I know this is kinda of standard UI for slider type of interface these days.

Thank you

Thank you for a much nicer-looking slider control. It will be great if we can apply format rules for colors and prefixes such as currency or number (#) symbols for the slider controls.

A feature request is in place.

BUG:
Detail view within a map view shows the percentage symbol stacked.

Also, when no value is present, NULL, it shows pretty ugly.
