    Open Hours Utility deletes comments in tab17

    Open Hours Utility deletes comments in tab17. (We get the message:'Updating the open hours will cause all remark lines (beginning with "!") to be deleted....')

    Is this intentional? Comments are valuable entries in the table but are lost in tab17 if the open hours utility in the gui is used.

    Below is a quote from the Version 18 Release Notes:
    Note that tab17 has an additional column [column 7] for a comment which can be added using the new interface. If you have added comments by prefixing them with an exclamation mark to your tab17 table, you should move them to the new column before you start to use the interface – all comments that have been added with an exclamation mark will be deleted when the table is updated using the GUI-based interface.

    See KB 16384-22130 in regard to the "Updating the open hours ... " message.
