Leaner repeated sections and grids

Orbeon Forms's repeated sections and grids are powerful. For example they support adding, inserting, removing, and moving repeated content freely.

But in some cases, users can prefer a simpler interface without all the bells and whistles. So repeated sections and repeated grids now support a minimal appearance, which you can enable via properties for all forms or for specific forms. It's entirely opt-in.

Compare the default appearance of a single-line repeated grid:

with the new minimal appearance:

You notice that the minimal appearance doesn't include the row dropdown menus, that the grid lines are missing, and that you simply have Add/Remove links at the bottom.

For more details, see the documentation. This feature will be available in the next major version of Orbeon Forms and we hope you'll like it!
