Control Expert V14.1 FBD Editor

Hi,

 

I'm having an issue with the FBD Editor in Control Expert V14.1.

Note: My colleagues have the same issue.

 

The FBD Editor is not allowing me to click and select the input/output pins of a FB.

Instead when the left mouse button is pressed, the cursor changes to that shown when the "Link" tool is selected.

Below a screenshot of the cursor when the left mouse button is clicked.

In previous versions of Unity Pro a single left mouse button click on a FB input/output pin selects the pin.

 

Has anyone else had similar issues?

Does anyone know of solutions to this issue?

Speaking to Schneider Tech Support, they advised that to select a FB pin you must click on the pin description inside of the FB square.

Clicking on the FB pin itself will begin creating a link to another FB.

 

This is a new 'feature' that first appeared in V13.0.

So basically:

 

  • Click the pin if you want to make a connection to another pin/function block
  • Click the label to select the pin - for example if you want to invert it
  • Double-click either to be attach a Variable to the pin.

 

Hope this helps.

Oops ... and one more I forgot is that you can right-click either to get the options menu.
