New in this documentation release

Build 4.2.45

  • Changes have been made to the Branch and Clone features. Branched objects will now contain the same ID as their source objects. Clone objects must now contain unique IDs so the option Use same ID has been removed form the Clone dialog box, see Clone a map, topic, or image.
