Strategy breakpoints are cleared for all charts
Revision:  1.0

Problem was introduced in version:  
R8.0a, PAC Control
R5.0a, ioControl

SYMPTOMS

In a PAC Control strategy, if two or more charts with breakpoints are running in Debug mode and one of the charts with breakpoints is closed, then all charts are cleared of their breakpoints if Yes is selected from the Breakpoint warning message. The Breakpoint warning message is displayed after a chart with breakpoints is closed.

The breakpoint hand icons are still visible on all blocks, but the strategy does not pause on those blocks.

To duplicate the problem:

  1. From Debug mode, open two running charts.
  2. Place one or more breakpoints in each chart.
  3. Close one of the charts and select Yes from the breakpoint warning message.

The other chart will now not stop on any block with a breakpoint hand icon.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, you can either not close a chart with breakpoints in it, or you can manually remove the breakpoints before closing the chart.
