  • Fixed Issue: The New Version tool caption is not displayed. This issue was introduced in


  • Fixed Issue: When the Comments Explorer is displayed in an asynchronous view and comments are saved using the Save Comments tool on the view toolbar or ribbon, the comments and attachments shown in the Comments Explorer are cleared. This issue was introduced in #3122

Saved Views

  • Fixed Issue: When a saved view is renamed in the View Selector Explorer Bar or the View Selector Tree, using the Rename Saved View tool in the context menu, the renamed view is initially updated; however, when the view selector is refreshed and when the application is restarted, the saved view is no longer listed and is also not accessible from within the Managed Saved View dialog. #3123

SQL Connections

  • Fixed Issue - Unclosed SQL connections on the server causes an error when attempting to perform more than 667 insertions, and also prevents connecting to the database when the number of unclosed connections exceeds 667. These issues were both introduced in Version #3119

View Metadata Editor

  • Fixed Issue: In the View Metadata Editor, when the Preview tool is used to open a view, and the operation fails due to an error with resolving the view’s metadata properties, the view is not opened and no error is reported. This behavior occurs when the NamedPropertySets is assigned a property set that does not exist. #3116

Workbook Scripting

  • Fixed Issue: When a WorkbookScriptToolController references a procedure that calls ExecuteProcedure and the Procedure argument is a formula, an error similar to the following occurs: #3118

    Unable to initialize tool controller <tool key>.

    Unable to initialize the workbook script for the WorkbookScriptToolController tool <tool key>. Error loading Procedure <procedure name>.

    The specified Procedure does not exist.

  • Fixed Issue with SaveWorkbook method: When a view’s workbook script calls SaveWorkbook after the view is initially built, and the user subsequently attempts to rebuild the view, the workbook with the saved changes is opened instead of the view template, which is stored in the repository. This issue was introduced in #3120
