These are useful comments on version 4.5.1 features that did not make it into the printed documentation.
Improvements were made to avoid some of the Type 11 errors that occurred in versions 3.5 through 4.5. Because of this change PowerMac users will no longer need to modify the HMTS resource (ID=1) to improve how Helix Express uses the System's Thread Manager.
You could not copy text from a Field containing a certain type of popup menu.
Some Styled Text type popup Fields would display garbage characters if the text did not match a menu selection.
Changing the type style in the Data Rectangle's Conditional Style/Color dialog would not always work properly.
Update Collection could generate an ID=28 System Error on a Mac SE and possibly other Mac models.
Using the Delete key to remove the last character in a Field could cause flashing to the right of the insertion cursor.
The "Enter Override" could be disabled when the View is opened by an auto-open Post.
A rare situation could lead to a record being entered by pressing the Enter key when the "Enter" command was not on the User's menus.
The posting thermometer dialog would report "Posting from -1 source records." in rare situations.
A certain crash occurred on a PowerMac 7200/90 because of a change that was made to this model's ROMs. The crash may not be limited to this specific model.
A validation error would not always stop a Sequence from executing.
NOTE: If you are running the Helix Client and Server on the same Mac, be sure to apply the patch file "Client & Server Same Mac 4.5.1" which is in the Expert Tools folder. This patch should be applied to the Server application and all copies of the Client application which will be used to visit the Server.
The other files that shipped with Helix Express 4.5 (Helix Utility, Helix Translator, Helix Help, Custom Helper, etc.) have not changed in 4.5.1.
If you are not using the Client/Server software, you do not need this file. If you are using the Helix Client/Server software you should also download the Helix Express 4.5 -> 4.5.1 Patch.
If you are not using a Helix Express Runtime Engine, you do not need this file.
