    1818GUI improvements: 
     
    2626    * Topicmap uses full window height. There is no dead space at the bottom anymore (#543). 
    2727* Detail Panel: 
    28     * Redundant topics are suppressed in the detail panel's related topics listing. A topic is regarded redundant if 1) it is already represented in the detail panel's upper area (the "model-driven box structure"), and 2) there is a "Composition Definition" in the underlying model (#315). 
    29     * The "what's related" topic listing in the detail panel is grouped by Topic Type (instead Association Type). Thus the group headings are more user friendly (#315). 
    30     * In the detail panel's related topics listing for each topic the respective association type is shown beneath the topic (#315). 
    31     * The direct child topics of the selected topic (which are not appearing anymore in the page panel's related topics listing) can be revealed via the page panel's upper area (which shows the nested boxes): when hovered the corresponding box it is highlighted and a pointer cursor appears. On click the underlying topic is revealed in the map (#315). 
    32     * In the detail panel's "related topic" lists: when the topic is contained in the current topicmap its icon is surrounded by a thin red line (instead of dimming it). When such an icon is clicked the respective association is revealed (in case it was hidden) and the topicmap is translated to bring the topic into the viewport (in case it was outside the viewport) (#579). 
    33     * The "what's related" topic listing in the detail panel is sorted case-insensitively (#521). 
     28    * "Related Topics" list: 
     29        * Redundant topics are suppressed. A topic is regarded redundant if it is already represented in the detail panel's upper area (the "model-driven nested boxes") (#315). Suppressed topics can still be revealed in the topicmap, namely via the page panel's upper area: when hovered the corresponding box is highlighted. A click reveals the underlying topic. 
     30        * The topics are grouped by Topic Type (instead of Association Type). The respective association type is now shown beneath each topic. The Related Topics list is much more readable this way (#315). 
     31        * Revised icon vs topic label click behavior: the icons of the topics which are contained in the current topicmap are now surrounded by a thin red line (instead of appearing dimmed). Clicking such an icon a) reveals the respective association (in case it was hidden), and b) translates the topicmap to bring the topic into the viewport (in case it was outside the viewport) (#579). 
     32        * Long topic labels are not truncated (instead of applying a limit of 50 characters) (#315). 
     33        * The topics are sorted case-insensitively (#521). 
    3434    * Long words (like file names) are line-breaked. No horizontal scrollbar appears in the detail panel (#537, #575). 
    35     * Long topic labels in the detail panel's "related topic" lists are not truncated anymore. Formerly there was a limit of 50 characters (#315). 
    3635* Menus: 
    3736    * Long menus (exceeding the screen) have a scrollbar. The former upper/lower "scrolling areas" are gone. You can use the mouse wheel or whatever gesture for scrolling (#534).
