SAP GUI 750

Has anyone been the daredevil and used SAP GUI 750 in anger yet?

I installed it and quite like the convergence with Fiori via the Accept SAP Fiori visual theme option, but I would be interested in any experience of real use.

Best regards

Frank

    I have not done much with it yet, but so far, things are fine...

    Belize-Theme is something new I have to get used to (save and cancel in the lower right, back (F3) in the upper left, menu entries I know hidden, less information displayed on the screen = more scrolling/searching..)

    but that's ok!

    best

    Just discovered an issue. When you install new GUI you can't open a service connection with SAP. When opening oez file you are getting error saying "Library librfc32.dll cannot be found".

    This is probably due to replacement of librfc32.dll with NWRFC.

    We updated to it recently and I just installed patch level 5 on 2018-06-05 (today) which is the latest patch level available. The one thing that is annoying me about it is that there used to be three views of your connections - explorer view, tree view, and list view - tree view and list view seem to have disappeared or someone in my company did some INI customizing. I have searched all over SCN and support and even asked a question as to where they went - no answer. I don't want to color someone's opinion that something changed without knowing why it changed, so I'm wondering if it was on purpose by SAP or that someone on my end did some INI customizing that I can "un-customize". I am a list view guy myself so that is why I want it back.

    As for the new theme (Blue Crystal)- I am not a fan of it. The icons are too washed out in my opinion and make it hard to figure out what is what. I still think the tradeshow theme is the best but I think I read or heard that all but the blue crystal theme is going away in version 760.

      We've been running 7.50 SP4 a number of months, but also mainly keep to the 'classical' Themes. We've found little to no issues. Very interesting statement on the future direction (7.60) and the replacement of some themes ...

      See Blogpost "SAP GUI for Windows 7.60 will not feature Classic Theme and Enjoy Theme" that mentions something similar : link

      Sounds like a custom job on your end. I still have tree view and list view available.

      But we're on patch level 3, soooo...

      I agree about Blue Crystal. I'm no fan. It makes it much harder to distinguish between colors. This seems to be a general industry trend (see MS Office 2016, for instance), and I've written before that I think it's a general conspiracy to convince those with older eyes to retire early and make room for the young guns...

      But, we're trying to implement Personas here, and specifically to make it work within the SAPGUI rather than WebGUI, and we found that it only works if Blue Crystal theme is chosen (we're on GUI 740 still, by the way). So, we may just have to get used to it. Otherwise, we still use Signature theme throughout, as we found that after a GUI upgrade, some FI functionality didn't work with newer themes. Seriously. I don't recall offhand specifically what it was, but it was the weirdest thing, when we tried to use Corbu (I think), our Accounting power users complained that some of the older transactions they used heavily ceased to work properly. Switching back to Signature eliminated the problem. So, I'm a little worried about what this might mean for us after the next GUI upgrade, or after rolling out Personas more generally.

      Steffi - thanks - I am thinking it was a custom job too. Does anyone know where the documentation is for the config files? I tried to find it but wasn't too successful.

        You need the SAPgui Administration Guide. That explains how to change all this stuff. This is in the zip file alongside the installation files.
