  33. Fixed a bug when copying and pasting items in the Direct Editor. Certain characters were being replaced with different characters.
  34. Fixed a bug that occurred when using extra large fonts in the editors. The script items were being truncated because they were too large. This has been fixed.

  63. The edit password is now required in order to make any changes to the macro from the Macro Explorer (i.e. renaming, enabling/disabling, deleting...).
  64. Increased the speed at which the log file is loaded when viewing the macro properties. This should decrease the delay when displaying the properties.

  67. Fixed a precision bug in the decimal variable commands.
