Original issue fixed in 1.1.0.34The errors view, on the responses tab, is now used by the Acknowledge Errors button and status to determine if any errors are present

I've looked into this and the current behaviour was originally by-design but I can understand it causing confusion. The idea was that it should be possible to reset the different views independently of acknowledging the error. By supporting granular control over each view I hoped more scenarios could be supported. For example, it may be desirable to not explicitly acknowledge the error so that the flag acts as a reminder, but still clear the error view to monitor new errors arriving.
To address this issue, I'm considering renaming buttons where necessary, to clarify their scope, and also adding a split to some buttons with a drop-down menu containing actions that clear broader scopes.

For example, the Acknowledge Errors button could look something like this:

| Acknowledge Errors | v |
| Reset All
| Clear Statistics
| Clear Response View
