[Factory] Add group columns not included in the module settings (CS-2558/RP-2928): importing a prcx with option "add group column" in ImportXML tasks set to "True" led to a bug that set the option to "False" in the imported rfl.

Attributes for pasting formula must scroll over the displayed ones (RP-2855): copy/paste formula operations did not consider only displayed columns.

Error in Feature Ranking (RP-2515): with the Enable-multi plot option checked, the system returned an error if no plot was selected. The issue has been solved, since plots are not refreshed if at least one entry is not selected.

Released November 06,2023
New default for option "typestr" in ImportJson (RP-2858): default for option "typestr" in ImportJson has been changed from "type" to None. Prcx from Rulex4, when imported, set the value of the option to "type" (if a value is not already present) to mantain back compatibility.
Unknown internal error when trying to run WF in Rulex Factory (RP-2873/CS-2507): a bug was present when importing a prcx that had "priority first" as priority policy, that led to error when trying to compute the flow. Now the bug has been fixed and Rulex Platform correctly imports this type of prcx.
WRT for Factory (RP-2868/CS-2514): presence of a bug on Workflow Review Tool that led to an error in case some option check by the WRT were not set. Now the bug has been fixed, the WRT accepts both "Workflow" (as in Rulex 4) and "Flow" in the sheetname field.

Context Help not working correctly (RP-2842): context help in tasks was not showing correctly the option name at pointer hover.
Python path not well escaped in Python Bridge (RP-2877): the Python path in Python Bridge and the Rterm executable in r bridge were not correctly escaped with respect to the windows path separator "\". As in the other import tasks, now the path is treated by using the Unix-like path separator "/".

Export to Text File: S3 bucket path ignores the first character (RP-2785): handled paths in s3 Connector not starting with "/" char.
Make default column width command raises an error if applied on a column with no width modification (RP-2750): if an untouched column is selected and the Make default column width option in the context menu is selected, the result is a backend error, since no column has modifications to be set. This corner case has been managed by preventing the backend call if no columns have to be changed.
Deleting a rule in a conditional formatting has no effect (RP-2753): if on an attribute all the conditional formatting rules are deleted, they still persist, since the new layout has no attribute entry anymore. This case is now managed.

Unable to set Sharepoint connection through Response Uri Pencil icon (RP-2739): the pencil icon became disabled when the Response Uri is set to any entry different from Local File System.

Tabs seem not to close if closed with focus on a different tabs (RP-2780/RP-2767): if the cross icon on Rulex Task tabs in standalone version was clicked with the focus on a different tab and the task which was about to be closed has pending changes, the tab seemed not to close itself because the warning dialog was shown on a not visible tab. The issue has been solved by moving the focus if the task can’t be closed due to pending changes.
Issue in fast switching between Attribute and Data Tab (RP-2783): if the user switches fast between the Attribute tab and the Data tab, some remaining calls from the precedent tab will were sent to a no longer existing dataset, leading to a Key error. Now a loading mechanism has been introduced to discard all the calls happening during the loading phase.
If the license can not be validated, the standalone version remains hung on the splash screen window (RP-2809): if the license couldn’t be validated, the standalone version remained hung on the splash screen window and the error was returned only in the logs. Now the issue is solved, and the error is visualized in the correct license alert box as already happens in the Cloud version.
Nominal query panel graphical glitches in the Attribute area (RP-2810): the nominal query panel had some graphical defects on the Attribute area.

Unexpected change type for binary column (RP-2765): when editing a binary column by inserting in a cell one of the values already present in the column itself, the type was wrongly changed to nominal. Now the column remains binary. It changes to nominal only if a value different from the one already present is inserted.

Some string cells in an XLSM Excel file are not imported (CS-2429/RP-2744/RP-2727): the parsing of string cells in an XLSM Excel can lead to a missing value if macros are present. Parsing has now been corrected.

Styling possibilities in Data Manager (RP-2350): style column management has been added to the Data panel of the Data Manager task. Columns can now be formatted at persistent level both conditionally or not.
Attribute order selection was not preserved if numbers are present as column names (RP-2737): JSON convertion in communication between web frontend and backend changed the selection order if numbers were used as attribute name. Issue is now solved using arrays instead of dictionary to represent attribute selection.
Manage Roles always visible (RP-2708) (Cloud version only): the role manager was always available in the User Context Menu and the groups were not correctly visualized internally. Now the Role manager is visible only if current user and groups owns at least one role and dialog has been corrected to show users and groups available.

If a window is not the upfront window it can not be minimized (RP-2706): when trying to minimize a window located behind another Rulex Platform window, this would have focussed again without minimizing itself.
If an error is returned during Data Manager operations from GUI, the history sometimes is not cleaned (RP-2726): if the unhandled exception is returned by a session command, the history is not correctly cleaned.
Rulex Platform Execution Parameters (CS-2424/RP-2696): in Rulex 4, the stop-policy "Stop Neighbours" acted like the "Continue" stop-policy, so the stop-policy has been changed in Imprort Prcx from "Stop Neighbours" to "Continue" to mantain the same behavior. The default stop policy for a new flow has also been changed to "Continue".
Changing any Execution parameter throws an error (CS-2425/RP-2694): the prcx import operation prevented from changing the execution parameters of the imported flow, due to a bug in the import operations. Now the bug has been fixed and in the next prcx import operations it is possibile to change the execution parameters.
Restore behavior of "Stop Neighbour" as Rulex4 (RP-2730): the behavior of "Stop Neighbour" stop policy has been restored as it used to be in Rulex 4. Therefore, previously introduced conversion in prcx import to "Continue" stop policy has been removed.
Error 22: no further information released in Rulex Platform (CS-2432/RP2722): a bug on import from sharepoint caused the task having "Wait until the file is present" option selected to fail instead of waiting. Now the bug is fixed and those tasks show the correct behavior.
