Version 5.3q 07/03/2017

 1. Sometimes, the order of terminals of a terminal strip was not saved correctly.
 2. The assignment of terminals and cables was sometimes not correct after duplicating a page.
 3. Sometimes, the exchange of a logo bitmap within a drawing frame was not stored correctly.
 4. After cancelling the piston length dialog of the insert dialog, an item with the amount of "0" was added.
 5. The dialog for adding a symbol to a custom database now shows all custom libraries. In case of assigning a symbol which does not match the selected database, the symbol is automatically copied to the corresponding custom library.
 6. The identcode text is now placed better, so that it does not interfere with connectors. Moreover, the text is no longer part of the symbol group, so that it can be moved without ungrouping the symbols.
 7. The list box for selecting the main component of a sub-symbol is wider, so that also long designation strings can be read.
 8. Designation rules, the cross-reference representation and the language of projects and pages can now be copied from global settings of the options menu. As a default, page and project properties are no longer inherited from the global settings at runtime so that the representation is not dependent on  individual settings of

a PC. However, this behavior can be changed by setting the registry entry "InheritFromGlobalOptions" (HKCU) to the value "True".
 9. After resetting to factory settings, "Insert from product catalog" did not work until next FluidDraw start.
10. When inserting from Festo Quick Search, objects are now placed on the active page, if possible.
11. Objects inserted from file could sometimes overlap.
12. The drawing frame file was not always found if a page was not part of a project.
13. Two terminals that are connected by a bridge did not appear as targets in the terminal assignment diagram.
14. The link to the Wibu WebAdmin from within the license dialog did sometimes not work.
15. Predefined attributes of custom databases cannot be erroneously renamed.
16. The input area as well as the character map of the text object now consider the delected font.
17. DXF import improved and new options added.
18. In order to avoid confusion, page numbering can optionally skip letters "I" and "O".
19. A warning is shown if translation tables contain numbers or designations as text IDs.
20. The insert dialog now shows translations for custom translation tables.
21. The translation table is now available in the parts list view.
22. Column widths within translation tables are calculated better.
23. Some column headers were not translated if the target language was not available as program language but only as product catalog language.
24. For symbols that consist of a group a text element holding the product data is inserted even if the option "Insert symbols with type attribute" is disabled.
25. In the drawing layer dialog, the layer properties can be adopted from another page. The page selection dialog now shows the project pages in hierarchical view instead of a flat list.
26. The browse attribute dialog now shows all objects in hierarchical view. Moreover, the dialog considers the page language and translation tables, if available.
27. The scale operation is automatically switched off for very tiny objects in order to avoid unintentional scaling or rotating when trying to move the objects. The tolerance can be adjusted with the registry entry "AutoScaleMinSize" (HKCU). The value '0' switches off the automatic.
28. The function "Enable scale" has to be activated explicitly. Until now, for drawing elements and tables the scale mode was entered automatically if the mouse cursor was close to an edge. This automatic can be re-activated by the Registry entry "AutoScaleMode" (HKCU).
29. The warning for duplicated connector labels is suppressed if the corresponding superordinated objects have different designations.
30. The option "Object appears in parts lists" of the common properties dialog was not applied for macro objects.
31. Assigning pen properties did sometimes not work for dimensioning.
32. Zoom factor and scroll positions are stored in addition to window positions on exit.
33. Project texts export no longer contains designations but project description, page descriptions and folder descriptions of the project tree.
34. Unplaced objects were sometimes updated with a delay.
35. When inserting Festo products, the type is automatically applied as identcode if there is no identcode assigned. This automatic can be switched off by the Registry entry "SetTypeAttribAsIdentCode" (HKCU).
36. The option "foreground/background" is now also available for text objects. Thus, e.g. texts within drawing frames can be placed in background.
37. CSV import is more tolerant of column delimiters.
38. The project tree was sometimes not updated completely.
39. Archiving projects could overwrite the original files in rare cases.
40. Layout bug in print dialog resolved.
41. In case there is no license available when launching FluidDraw, all currently running FluidDraw instances including user and computer names are listed.
42. When inserting identcodes from clipboard, product data are assigned in addition to symbol expansion, if internet access is available.
43. The designation of copied sub-objects was sometimes not applied correctly.
44. Alignment of grouped objects did not always place corresponding texts correctly.
45. Parts list cells with "read-only" attribute could sometimes be edited. However, the changes did not have any effect.
46. Calculation of macro extensions improved.
47. The last data set of shopping cards was sometimes not processed.
