Bixby Developer Center


Version 8.1.0

Updated: May 21, 2020

Welcome to v8.1.0, the 20J release of Bixby Developer Studio. This release contains enhancements and bug fixes for Search and Replace, Stories, and Training V2.

Training V2

New Context Menu Items for Editing Utterances

We've added three new context menu items to help edit training utterances: "Extend Annotation", "Extend Role", and "Clear All". "Extend Annotation" and "Extend Role" will extend the label to include the highlighted text. "Clear All" will remove all annotations and roles from the highlighted text.

Clear All



Bixby Studio can now export a story with screenshots! When you run a story in the Simulator, it captures and stores screenshots. When you press "Export Story", Bixby Studio creates a story that includes all these screenshots.

If you have an existing story without screenshots, you can provide them by pressing the "Capture Screenshots" button in the Story Editor. You can press the "Capture Screenshots" button at any time to capture them again if your capsule implementation changes.

Screenshot files are stored within your story folder, and can be checked into source code control. Re-running a story in the Story Editor no longer captures screenshots automatically, so you must click on either the "Export Story" button or the "Capture Screenshots" button.

Adding Steps

We removed obsolete buttons at the bottom of the Story Editor sidebar that were for adding new steps.

Now to add steps to a story, select the final step and click on the [+] button below it. This takes you to the Simulator to add new steps. Adding new steps to an existing story automatically stores screenshots for those steps.
