Known Issues

  • If switch 'UpdateViews' is set to true the label of the VIEW is modified. If you insert a section on the sheet, the default for the text of the section is the label of the VIEW. Therefore instead of just the expected text 'A' or 'B' a complete browser node text is displayed.
  • If the switch UpdateFunctionalDocuments is set to 'true' in the config file, some of the browser names of Frame Generator parts may not be updated.
  • The switch UpdateContentCenterFiles is not evaluated. Content Center Files are updated if attribute UpdateLibraries is set to 'true'.
  • Browser name of an IPN as a component in a VIEW of a drawing cannot be updated.
