Control Diagram Editor S.V. 6.0
Does anybody has some information about any improvements done in 800xA S.V. 6.0 to the Control Diagram Editor introduced in 5.1 FP4?
Do you mean like the information about new Features from the System 800xA Release Notes Document (2PAA111899-600)?
Here copied from PDF:
The auto-routing of graphical connections in the Diagram editor has been improved. The diagram layout has been improved reducing the number of crossings, unnecessary bends and long connections. Multiple connections to the same port are handled in a better way, reducing the need for manual adjustments.
The below listed are the enhancements made to diagram editor.
•Connection dialogs will remember their last position, and reappear at the same position the next time they are launched.
•New Diagrams and Diagram types no longer generates error due to lacking FD code block.
•Enabling EN no longer result in bad layout of object ports.
•Enabling and then disabling EN no longer results in triangle symbol indicating that there are hidden ports.
•Using port visibility on a structured variable object with connected ports no longer disconnect ports.
•Auto complete functionality in connect dialog used to move the cursor last in text when text was modified, making it hard to modify the text.
•Long variable names were not shown in connect dialog since the drop down menu was too narrow.
•Auto complete functionality now shows automatically generated SFC variables like example, StepName.X.
•Direct connected variables now have menu commands for Search and References.
•Connection editor for a block now show the length of string parameters.
•Split page operation could generate internal compile error.
•Split page could result in incorrect data flow order numbers on the objects.
•Adding Split and Join blocks could cause the editor to crash if very short block names were used.
•Find in Editor command now search inside block descriptions.
•Find and using Replace All could cause Control Builder to hang.
•Some problems with display of online values have been corrected.
•Project Documentation for Diagrams and Diagram types now include tables for hidden ports with connections, and for link variables.
