      Description

      Product: Data Integration
      Version: 5.0.7
      Operating System: All

      The ability to define colour coded regions would make complex transforms/jobs much more readable by allowing you to break it up without having to actually move steps out into a new transform/job via mappings/sub-jobs etc. There is a work around to use the note feature in PDI but this is very cumbersome and makes it more difficult to select and move steps.

      Please see attached image as an example.
