On this page:
http://www.eclipse.org/4diac/documentation/html/4diacIDE/applicationModelling.html#MapNetworks
"All mapped Function Blocks are marked with the following icon mapping [icon] Furthermore, if the option "sync FB Color with Device Color" is active, the color of the FB changes to the Devices color during the mapping process."

Questions:
1. Is the icon "icon mapping" absent now?
2. Where is the option "sync FB Color with Device Color"?
3. What about the color of the SubApps changes to the Devices color during the mapping process?

Hi,

Thanks for pointing this out. It think we need to update our documentation here.

The icon mapping has been removed I think with version 1.8.0 at the same time we made thy synch with device color the default behavior. The reason was that giving the FBs teh device color was much a better feedback than the icon.

Currently there subapplicaitons are not showing the color of the device. This has allready been reported in the old issue trakcer [1].

As you are using subapplications I want to bring up a warning here. In the current stable versions subapplications are an experimental feature and using them may destroy your project. Please be carefull when using them. We are currently heavily working to bring a stable and usefull implemetnation of subapplications back to 4diac. This is planed for 1.9.0. A preview for the new subapplication implementation is planned for 1.9.0 Milestone 2 which we hope to release end of february beginning of march.

Cheers,
Alois
