ID Known Issue
100185

Return
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.

110487

Return
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.

Return
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.

Return
The 12th element in the Inputs.ctl Cluster of a Statechart is always disabled
