In IBM Rational Rhapsody, if you add custom colors to a comment, add a stereotype with a "Comment" as the meta-class, and then try to format this meta-class, the custom colors will no longer be visible from the "Fill Color" option.
The following steps reproduce the problem:
- Create a Project > Model > Diagram
- Add a comment to the model from Add New > Annotations > Comments and drag it onto the diagram
- Click the Fill Color icon from the toolbar and add, for example, six custom colors of differing hues and luminosity
- Save all changes
- Add a stereotype
- Right click the stereotype and select Format... > Comment > Format selected Metaclass... > Fill Color > Other...
Expected Result: The custom colors added in Step 3 are available
Actual Result: The customer colors added in Step 3 are not available
This has been identified as a product defect under APAR PM69742.
