Jarek,

Quiet day today so I am looking intensely at the newest version of BIoEra Pro. I was about to add some elements to an older design when I saw the new list of elements. Names starting with a letter and then an underscore. Not sure what this means and how they should be used. I checked the user manual and the changelog but could find no information,

Can you clarify this?

Thanks

The dialog with the list of new element has 2 options:
- Categorized Element
- Elements

The first option is the default and it shows a shorter list which is categorized on the right panel (using radio buttons). For example you can select a Float version of an Oscilloscope or DoubleFloat (higher precision) version.

If you see element names starting with a letter and underscore then you probably have selected the second option \"Elements\", and you see all elements. The categorization is done based on those letters (F_ is float, D_ is double float etc.). It might be easier to use if you switch back to the first option.

Thanks,

I like having the longer list available as some of elements I use show up there but not in the categorized list.
I was just curious about the new naming convention. Is there Or will there be a document that explains their functions?

This document contains more information about this topic:

http://www.bioera.net/architecture.html

Look for \"Element naming\" chapter at the end.

The architecture document is exhaustive but would be much improved and more accessible with a list of the corresponding icons and how they're categorized and used.
