- Fix for REMOVE command for a sheet or a module.
- Support for renaming of the entire signal of a polygon to a hierarchical name
in case of a board w/o consistent schematic (unnecessary restriction has been
- Fixed restoring window positions from an eagle.epf, if there is an additional
setting in eaglerc for the default window behavior in maximize state
(generated via Options / Window positions in Control Panel).
- Fix for hyphen not being displayed correctly as HTML text if enclosed by
'<nobr>' tag on Windows XP.
- Re-activated translations of standard button texts (for 'cancel', 'back' etc.).

after release of V7.3.
