PDF Filename in Web Export
When enabling the PDF download button for web export, the PDF's filename will now match the documents filename. For example, if your documents filename is ReleaseNotes.xar, the PDF filename will be ReleaseNotes.pdf

Selector Tool Handle Visibility
Selecting very small objects previously caused certain resize handles to not appear at 100% zoom (or, depending on the object, at an even greater zoom). We've improved this by showing the resize handles at all zoom levels, no matter how small the object is.
