Correction on STM32 Micro Explorer configuration utility

I recently wrote about MicroExplorer from STMicroelectronics - STM32 visual configuration tool. And I put a hint there: "Hint 2: Manually selecting an input/output role for a pin (such as Open Drain Output) will prevent you from choosing a peripherial in the drop-down menue. The utility will not tell you that there's a conflict - it will just not allow you to choose a peripherial. So my advise is - select all the peripherials first and then start playing with inputs/outputs manually."


Luckily, this is not true. If there's a conflict, Micro Explorer shows you possible candidates for the conflict - on mouse over:
If you hold you mouse over a conflict sign, you'll see what's the problem
Happy configuration!

Cheers :-)
