    1819GUI improvements: 
    1920* Topicmap Panel: 
    20     * ### New look & feel (Box Renderer) (#577). 
    21     * Right-clicking the canvas brings up a Create menu with the same topic types as listed in the toolbar's Create menu. The created topic is positioned where the right-click is performed (#529). 
    22     * In the topicmap the associations are displayd along with their values (as entered in the detail panel when an association is selected) (#34). 
    23     * As a shortcut double clicking a topic or association enters edit mode (#526). 
    24     * Clicking on canvas removes current topic/association selection (#523). 
    25     * In various situations a proper cursor shape is shown: While something is moved a grabbing hand cursor is shown. While an association is drawn a crosshair cursor is shown (#552).  
    26     * Topicmap uses full window height. There is no dead space at the bottom anymore (#543). 
     21    * New look & feel (provided by the Box Renderer plugin): 
     22        * Topics are rendered as solid boxes with a reduced-size type icon in the corner. This way the topic content takes center stage (instead of the icon). 
     23        * The content of Note topics is displayable right on the topicmap. Note topics have an expand/collapse handle. The goal is to increase the topicmap's information density. Don't show a proxy, but the real thing. 
     24        *  Each topic box can have an individual color (independent of topic type). The color is set via context menu. The goal is to provide the user increased means of expression as known from graphics applications. 
     25        * Associations can be drawn by pulling the topic's type icon. No context menu and no Shift key is involved (although these gestures still work.) 
     26    * Create topics directly on the topicmap: right-click and choose a type from the list. The topic is created on-the-spot (#529). 
     27    * Associations are displayed along with their values (as entered in the detail panel) (#34). 
     28    * Shortcut: double clicking a topic/association enters edit mode (#526). 
     29    * Clearing the Detail Panel: clicking on the topicmap removes current topic/association selection (#523). 
     30    * Mouse cursor shapes: while something is moved a grabbing hand is shown, while an association is drawn a crosshair is shown (#552).  
     31    * The topicmap uses full window height. No dead space at the bottom (#543). 
    2732* Detail Panel: 
    2833    * "Related Topics" list: 
     
    4045    * In the toolbar, beside the Create menu, there is a "Create Note instantly" button. It can be triggered via Alt-n. The button creates a Note topic instantly (#529). 
    4146    * When clicking the logged in username (upper/right corner) and the respective User Account topic is already contained in the topicmap but outside the viewport, the topicmap is translated to bring the revealed User Account into view (#570).

    43 General improvements:
