Replacing a block diagram constant when configuring a statechart state node or transition node may not delete the original block diagram constant
Replacing a block diagram constant with the "Select a VI..." option in the statechart state node or transition node configuration dialog may not delete original block diagram constant
Workaround: Delete the original block diagram constant manually.
Deleting cluster constant in statechart configuration guard/action diagram can crash LabVIEW
In the Guard or Action diagram of the Configure State dialog box, if you try to delete the contents of a block diagram cluster that is typedef'ed, and then delete the cluster constant itself, LabVIEW might crash.
Workaround: When deleting a cluster constant in the Configure State dialog box, delete the entire constant at once instead of deleting the contents first.
Issue with copying/pasting states/transitions between different statecharts of the same name in different application instances
Copying and pasting a statechart diagram from a statechart state or transition in one application instance to a different statechart of the same name in another application instance generates an error.
Workaround: Ensure the statecharts between which you want to copy and paste states/transitions have different names.
Cannot rename statechart groups
If you try to change the name of a statechart group of triggers, you will not be able to. Similarly, if you create a new group of triggers, you will be unable to change the name from the default name initially assigned.
The 12th element in the Inputs.ctl Cluster of a Statechart is always disabled
When creating an Inputs.ctl for a statechart, the 12th element cannot be selected when configuring the transition from the Diagram.vi.
If an object in a search result is deleted, all the search results get grayed out
If an object in a search result is deleted from a State or Transition, all other search results corresponding to a State or Transition get grayed out
