AX7 UI is getting even better


Just ran though this Office Mix: https://mix.office.com/watch/1ohsrrpsd02e1 and it shows the new UI features coming to AX7 CTP8 and the upcoming release. It looks very nice!

I strongly encourage you to look through it as there are a lot of nice to know things in it.
I highlighted a couple of things that I thought was cool below in this blogpost… and it is almost everything. 🙂 Click continue reading below to look at the highlights.
