  • Fixed an issue in which the text representation of History view did not always refresh immediately when edits were made or undone.
  • Ensured correct enabling and disabling of the "Edit History" control in History view when the history is modified.
  • Corrected an issue that allowed duplicate primers with the same name but different sequence case to be imported into a file.
  • Corrected various issues that could occur when attempting to add features to the common features database, or importing such features, if they were marked as not visible in the original document.
  • Ensured correct export of common features to the specified folder.
  • Addressed issues that prevented collections stored on Windows network shares from being listed as recent collections in the File → Open Collection menu.

  • Ensured that the chosen enzyme set and enzyme visibility are retained when undoing sequence edits.
    (Reported by Scott James)
  • Ensured that bold is correctly used to highlight unique cutters after undoing sequence edits.
