IMPROVED [Editor] Removed auto scroll when huge segments are detected

In order to preserve a context when working on segments, when a segment is focused, the scroll is adjusted to view both the previous and next segment. However, this lead to unwanted results when working with very long segments. This behavior has been remove when such a scenario exists.

NEW Job workflow configuration pages: Improve display order of supplier groups

Job Management, Project Managers - WM-1811

IMPROVED [Editor] The behavior of the job's list has changed

The job's list used for navigating between jobs in the editor used to display all jobs in your platform. We think that it is not very relevant to display closed / cancelled / inactive... jobs, and in the case where you have a lot of jobs, it could take a very long time to display them.

With this development, it is now possible to display only jobs with "Proposal", "Not Started" and "In Progress" status which have been created in the last month.
You will still be able to retrieve the other jobs in your Wordbee platform in the Jobs tab.

IMPROVED Dynamic supplier groups: When supplier has multiple qualifying services select by preference the one in the default price list

When a supplier has 2 or more services that all qualify in a dynamic supplier group (e.g. you add the same service twice in 2 different or the same price lists), then we currently order all services by descending rating and pick the first one. We now have slightly changed this mechanism: We now sort the services by how good the language codes match, then by descending rating and finally by the price list name (with the default price list in first position). This means that if all services have the same rating, the system will prefer the default price list over any other.

NEW Populate supplier invoice details from an Excel file - And calculate cost on top

FIX QA rule: The ignore case option in the Terminology Check QA rule not working in all cases

If you tick the ignore case option in the Terminology Check rule, the system must disregard and case differences when searching for terms in the source text.
