Some results working with events in a project are not consistent.
Level Shift events:
Adding a Level Shift event in project might not be consistent when you add a Level Shift event to a project using:
Project -> Event Repository -> New…
Original changes made to Level Shift events in SAS Forecast Studio 4.1, specified slope and duration of the event explicitly instead of relying on the HPFEVENT procedure's default values.
The same event type can be created in more than one way using different syntax.
For example, event duration=0 with a Level Shift event type creates the equivalent of a Point event since the Level Shift goes away after one period.
To handle situations like the above when using automatic processes, all options will be specified explicitly and default values will be adjusted.
For example, duration=ALL will be the default for Level Shift events.
When working with combination events:
Project –> Event Repository -> Combine…
Currently, a user cannot unselect or remove a simple event which was automatically selected while creating a combination event.
Simple events will no longer be static.
