    The Process Designer allowed multiple sections of a coach to
    be created with control IDs that differ only in case (for
    example, "section5" and "Section5").  These control IDs can be
    automatically generated or specified by the user.  When the
    coach is displayed in Internet Explorer, the browser considers
    the control IDs to match (case-insensitive) and therefore does
    not correctly render the sections.  Firefox does not consider
    the control IDs to be matching and therefore does not exhibit
    the problem.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This issue has been fixed in the Process Designer; a warning
    message (dialog) will be displayed if two or more control IDs
    differ only in case (previously, only control IDs that matched
    exactly would generate the warning).
    
    An interim fix for Process Designer in BPM Version 7.5.0.1 has
    been published to Fix Central.
