    In the case where no symbol/label is selected, the utility runs in a mode that opens and closes each drawing, which may update drawing for following purposes: (1) data is updated through automation when drawing is closed, which might leave content in label outdated. (2) rule file is modified when drawing is closed. In this case, open and close drawing will make drawing graphic match data in database and latest rule file.
