New features

One of the major improvements is the introduction of the so-called Auto Picture Creator: In this new docking pane you can easily select the section of the structure picture that shall be drawn (e.g. unit cell range), apply design schemes and many more options with just one or two mouse clicks. Diamond will instantly create or update the structure picture automatically according to these settings. This new feature can be used instead or in addition to the classical step-by-step building up of the structure picture model.
