  • Added support for home and end keys in text fields
  • Added "Show all dimensions" checkbox in Import Setup"
  • Fixed bugs with a subset editor when the subset is modified by importing a HAT file. The editor window did not correctly pick up the changes made to the subset.
  • Added an extra check for recalculation when closing a subset editor. If changes were made, but not calculated and the subset is in use by open templates then it will be automatically recalculated before closing the editor window.
  • Fixed a bug in macro command Export: when both a template name and a file name were specified and no templates were found, all templates were exported.
  • Modified error message handling in macro command Export: fatal error messages are logged in the error log file instead of aborting the command execution.
  • Mac OS X: Fixed text strings in exported graphics. The system does not inclue ATSUI strings in PICTs.
  • Changed the way how field title width is determined for analysis windows. Starting from HAT 5.2b4 space was reserved so much that all characters were always visible. This resulted in problems in certain files with very long field names: items that were positioned to the right were moved too far to be accessible in most laptop screens. Now an upper limit of 150 pixels is defined for the field titles.
  • Fixed File operator offset bug: offset values were not correctly stored in HAT-files
  • Updated HAT file version number to "050928"
