New Feature in P4 v1.14 May Change How Digitizer Map Functions

If you use digitizer tablets to collect data with P4, you may need to check your digitizer maps to ensure they are still functioning as you expect. Version 1.14 included a change to how the Set Multiple Field Values digitizer command handles setting values in comment fields (e.g. Text Comments, Conditional Comments). 
 
A new feature in v1.14 allows comment values to be overwritten instead of appended to when using the Set Multiple Field Values command on a digitizer map.  In earlier versions of P4 the Set Multiple Field Values command would always append to a comment field by default. In version 1.14, the Set Multiple Field Values command now overwrites by default. To append to comment fields, you need to check the Append Values box in the Command Details, as in the screen shot below.
