Error description

  • Change in the behavior of the replay function.
    
    At V5.2.6 level, when you click to check the replay box for
    one route, a checkmark appears in the box and that line is
    highligted.  If you then click a second route, the same happens
    to it, but the first route clicked is no longer highlighted.
    That holds true if additional lines are also checked. The
    checkmark remains in the box for every route clicked, but only
    the route most recently clicked is highlighted. Then, when you
    right click and select the option to replay, only the
    highlighted route is replayed, not all of the checked routes.

    Circumvention:
    
    There are multiple ways around this. For all of them the first
    thing to do is use filters on the Activity screen to limit as
    far as possible so that only routes that do need to be replayed
    are displayed.
    
    Option 1: If it is possible to use the filter so that all of
    the routes displayed need to be replayed, then just click on
    the replay checkbox in the column header line. That should both
    highlight and check all of the routes. Then, right click either
    the top or bottom line and select the replay option.
    
    Option 2: If it is not possible to use the filter so that all
    of the routes displayed need to be replayed, then examine the
    screen looking for blocks of consecutive files that need to be
    replayed. For any such blocks, either click the top route in
    the block, then press and hold the Shift key and click the
    bottom route in the block or vice versa. That should cause all
    routes in the block to be highlighted and checked. Then, right
    click either the top or bottom route in the block and select
    the replay option.
    
    Option 3: If the filter has a number of routes that need to be
    replayed, but each one has a route that does not need to be
    replayed both below it and above it, click one of the routes as
    normal first. For all the rest, press and hold the control key,
    then click each of the other routes. All the routes that need
    to be rerouted should be highligted and checked. Then, right
    click either the top or bottom highlighted line and select the
    option to replay.
    
    You will need to add a comment each time that you click the
    replay option, but each highlighted line should be replayed and
    take the comment. Depending on how well the filters work to
    limit the diplayed routes to ones that need to be displayed,
    you may need to click to replay a number of times, but not as
    many as if each route were done individually.
