Other fixes and improvements:
Fixed rendering speed

We've eliminated issues with heavy memory leaks when the Main Character is selected in the Edit Mode.
You can now create as many keyframes as you want and won't run into any mismatches amongst them.
Fixed bugs with gizmo - it no longer disappears when you leave the Game Mode. – Dynamic Objects no longer disappear.
Validated Camera Limits to avoid the use of inverted values.
Fixed Undo-Redo and Duplicate operations to ensure this feature responds to all changes made in the scene.
Hotkey (CTRL + S) no longer affects Camera settings.
Fixed crash issues caused by the following operations: window resize, switching between modes, character modifications, physics and graphics calculations, and memory leaks.
The Physics Tab becomes visible by default when the collider edit tool is selected.
Changes in the Transform Panel are now re-calculated instantly in the 3D view.
📢 WHAT'S NEW?
Now shared textures will be applied automatically across different models and materials.
We've implemented the update system into the launcher window, that will inform you, when the new version is available, and what features or fixes will be delivered with the update.
MANU is now fully portable: all required libraries are included, so you don't need to install them.
All lists work much faster now, especially, when you need to collapse or expand them.
The Scene Tree is now using more icon types to separate various objects, so it will be easier to add proper objects to the timeline.
Unsupported or broken models will not cause crashes: Instead, MANU will warn you about the specific issue.
From now on, global objects Sun and Sky can be added to the animation from the Scene Tree.
All values typed in keyframes will be applied automatically.
Groups can now be ungrouped.
A horizontal scroll is now supported in all panels.
Retarget is now limited to the supported features of the specific object type.
Overall performance and stability are now improved.
