EA v16 invisible objects are now visible in the project browser
« on: October 14, 2021, 04:45:42 pm »
A feature that I didn't notice in the readme.txt is the fact that classically invisible elements such are notes and boundaries are now visible in the project browser, in a separate, blue package.

I find that a great improvement.

Fully agree, Geert, but personally I would prefer the blue package to be at the bottom, not at the top.

Yes, it's useful sometimes, but is there a setting to hide that folder?   Viewing and/or where it appears should be a user settting.

I started testing EA16 beta and spotted this improvement ; it's already proven to be useful in maintaining reused text elements within a diagram navigation.
+1 on the option to hide it

...but why the { } characters after the little blue folder - which I like.
Does this have some secret meaning, known only to curly-bracket-language people?
Of which I am (clearly) not one...
