Hi
Many of the error messages are getting much clearer. It would be great if the error message could include a suggestion of a possible fix or a link to a webpage with examples of how to fix common errors.

for example
Running ACE
Error: Unknown reference 'Mod1' detected in the entity 'Var1' in model 'ACE'

While users will know that this means they need to check if Mod1 is included in the ACE model it would help new users (and I can't see how it would hurt) to add a suggestion ie

Running ACE
Error: Unknown reference 'Mod1' detected in the entity 'Var1' in model 'ACE'
Suggestion: Check if 'Mod1' is included in model 'ACE' by looking at the object that holds 'ACE' model

thanks
Sarah

Or even....

directly show the contents of the ACE model for them?

Here are the contents of the "ACE' mxModel, but no sign of anything named 'Mod1':

mxModel ACE.... etc
