Known Issues

  1. Different keymapping: GraphicsWindow.LastKey returns different characters. Ex. [1] key returns “D1” on SBD v1.2 but “1” on SBO v0.91. 
    • STATUS: can't repro on SBO v0.91 / GraphicsWindow.LastKey is not supported yet for SBO v1.0
  2. AND/OR don’t work: Program stops at an instruction with And/Or operations on SBO v0.91. Sample code: KFQ075(O). 
    • STATUS: fixed for SBO v1.0

    • STATUS: can't repro on SBO v0.91
  4. No window title: No GraphicsWindow.Title and TextWindow.Title are shown on SBO v0.91. GraphicsWindow.Title is just ignored. But TextWindow.Title makes the program result in no output. Sample: SHV441(O). 
    • STATUS: GraphicsWindow.Title and TextWindow.Title are not supported yet for SBO v1.0
  5. DrawText acts as shape, changing font changes all drawn font size: Not as Shapes but FontName and FontSize can be changed after DrawText on SBO v0.91. Sample code: KSQ033(O).
