Panorama X10.1.2

16 November 2018

Modern database solution.

Overview

Panorama X combines the best elements of database and spreadsheet technology into a single package, making it an unparalleled tool for working with and analyzing any kind of information. Like a spreadsheet, Panorama X is RAM based for speed and flexibility, but with all of the data processing power of a full-blown database application and more. Panorama provides incredible performance when sorting, searching, performing analysis, and even when doing complete data restructuring. Even if a database already contains tens of thousand of records, Panorama X can quickly conquer tasks like shifting misaligned data, splitting or merging fields, correcting mis-formatted or improperly capitalized data, search and replace, phonetic searches or even searching with a formula or regular expression. It's like a Swiss Army knife for your data!

What's new in Panorama X

Version 10.1.2:
  • Fixed direct formula display in Web Browser Object, it was broken in Mojave (not sure why it worked on any version of macOS). This fix also restores display of charts in Mojave
  • Added explicit support for emojis. The new expandemojis( and emojicheats( functions convert between actual emojis and emoji abbreviations like :smile:, :purple_heart:, :thumbsup:, etc. The chr( function now works with emoji characters
  • The chart( function no longer interprets a negative value in the first line of chart data as a column title
  • Panorama now runs the .ModifyFill procedure (if it exists) after operations that modify an entire field. (This only happens for operations initiated manually by the user, not when these operations are performed within a procedure. If a procedure needs to call .ModifyFill, it must do so explicitly. There is a new statement, RunModifyFill, that will do this for you.)
  • When referencing an already open database, Panorama now allows .pandb to be included as part of the filename. For example farcall "xyz.pandb","test" will work if the xyz database is open
  • Dragging to the Text Import wizard now works even if the wizard isn’t the topmost Panorama window
  • If a field has the Editable option unchecked, you will no longer be able to paste into it in the data sheet, or to cut, delete or clear it. If you try these operations, you’ll just get a beep
  • The alignment options for the rectanglealign( function are now case insensitive, so for example either center or CENTER now works. This also carries thru to the zoomalign statement
  • Allow holding down the control key to pop-up the menu in summary/crosstab lists, (previously only right clicking would work)
  • Panorama 6 Installer wizard updated to download from provue.com server instead of ipodorganizer.com, also updated to so Help panel shows new Classic help page, instead of the old Code7 page
  • The info("proceduredatabase") function now correctly returns the database name when called from a drag receiver object
  • When Using a File>New>New Empty Database, the inspector panel for the newly created A field now contains the correct information (field name, type, and other options)
  • The Field Menu is now truncated when a Form window is open. Everything that is field specific is eliminated, leaving only the sort dialog, summarize and analyze dialog, etc. All field specific operations are only available in the data sheet
  • Panorama X now has the CFBundleSignature (creator code) ‘PANX
  • so that Apple Events can be sent to it. (This change does not affect AppleScript, only Apple Events sent directly by other programs outside of AppleScript.)
  • Removed duplicate "puzzle
  • images that were taking up extra space for no reason
  • Added printpvaddress C routine that will convert an address (64 bit integer) into hex with an emoji on the end. Should be handy for internal debugging
  • Documentation corrections submitted by Eric Werner, Michael Kellock, Thomas Cooper, Bruce De Benedictis, James Cook, Craig McPherson and Laurence Veinott
  • thank you all

For me, the $300 for 5 years was a no brainer. I've found Panorama to be the answer to my prayers whenever I've needed to keep track of things. I've been using the old version for what seems like forever and it has never let me down. This new version ensures that I'll be using the program for the next decade at least.

Panorama X is, simply stated, incredible software: super-fast (RAM-based), powerful, programmable, and compatible. It is ready for any task to be thrown it's way, including meshing with iOS applications as well as scaling to millions of records. It is logical to work with and readily programmable. Form generation is straightforward. The documentation is outstanding. Video tutorials, available for purchase, are quite useful. It is now compatible with Mojave and also very stable. The software model is subscription based with the most expensive option being $15/month and the cheapest, $5/month ... for a 5 year subscription. If you don't use the license for a month, then there is no charge. I'm not aware of similar subscription pricing for such a powerful product anywhere else.

Is Panorama X still being developed and supported??

Not entirely clear.

There's nothing else like it in the Mac world that I know of. Filemaker Pro is disk based and has very slow I/O. Panorama is RAM based and very fast.

The speed is useful for manipulating large data sets (>5 million records per table).

But further enhancements to Panorama X are still needed.

Panorama X is now only offered from a subscription based model. Those who do not mind such practices will argue that it is certainly the fairest possible offering of such a model. Perhaps it is, as it will go dormant, for the months that you do not open it during your subscription period. Theoretically, this could extend the subscription period indefinitely if you are not actually using the software. This seems to be a red-herring type argument. If you are not using it, then why try to justify it's cost? Panorama is a very powerful workhorse if you are looking for a database tool. It is amazingly fast, flexible, customizable, and accurate. As others have commented here, Panorama will do things you never thought of and do them extremely quickly. When I was first introduced to Panorama it was as a tool to take a large database in a different program, dump the data into a huge text file, and then use Panorama to reorganize that data for import into a completely different database build. Panorama made short work of that task as it works in RAM memory and loads very small text based files in it’s code. I assume this has largely been continued with Panorama X but I have not actually tested Panorama X as it is now subscription only. I am happy to continue to purchase upgrades from good developers - and Provue is certainly one of them. I strongly dislike subscription based models. I will pass when it comes to monthly payments for anything other than car insurance, mortgages, phone and internet services, and health care. Software development should stand on it’s own. In an economy of free choices, I will vote with my dollars. Sorry Panorama - and sorry for me too. I really liked that program.

For people who know and use other databases I've always gotten a kick out of showing them some of Panorama's basic capabilities. For instance, easily correcting capitalization on thousands of city names; San FRancisco, san francisco, SAN FRANCISCO to San Francisco with a simple Upperword( formula. Panorama has always been full of simple solutions for what one would assume are common capabilities, but they're not common. Panorama is one of those products you can pick up and be productive with almost immediately. If you're not experienced at database design, no problem. Adding, deleting or combining fields on an existing database is a quick task and doesn't stop or slow down use of the database. As an advanced user, Panorama is nothing less than a complete programming environment for me. It's built in compiler allows me to write very advanced processes for my demanding commercial clients. From within Panorama I'm able to run shell scripts or generate and run AppleScript , Python, PHP, Ruby and Perl. My Panorama programs can receive JSON and respond in kind making firm connections with iOS and Android apps. Panorama X blows away its predecessors. It's incredibly modern and sophisticated with a low minimum threshold for the user's skill but boundless capabilities for those who are ambitious to craft complete database systems.

I've been using Panorama (and its predecessor OverVue) since the mid 80's. It is without a doubt my favorite Mac app of all time. (For awhile HyperCard rivaled it, but unfortunately HyperCard is gone.) Panorama is so powerful—and you can automate just about anything it does. It can be complex, but it has a great help system—and if you get stuck, Panorama's discussion forum is the best I've seen—a super helpful and friendly community. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can give Panorama X is that it is so much fun to use!

Panorama X ("Ten") is the long expected major step in the evolution of my all time favorite database application. I know its predecessors (Panorama, OverVue) since 1985. It is now built for modern macOS and for international use (UTF-8). And it has a unique subscription model: $15 for 1 month, $100 for a year, $200 for 30 months or $300 for 5 years (so $5/month). MONTHS WHEN YOU DON'T USE THE SOFTWARE DON'T COUNT! I happily pay this modest fee for an always up-to-date version of this powerful database environment — that's presumably less than you have to pay for other application's updates in the same time.

I won't pay Adobe to rent their software and I most certainly won't pay ProVUE for Panorama. I have Filemaker which I don't have to pay for every month.

What was always a great, incredibly powerful database management program has now left its somewhat quirky GUI behind and blossomed into modern times with even more power and flexibility. Easy for the beginner and almost without limits for the serious database programmer. Great Help files and tons of how-to videos at your fingertips to guide you along the way. Give it a try!

You really need to make it clear that the $15.00 fee is per month.
