PH04204: UNEXPECTED BEHAVIOR WHEN WRITING BIDI COMMENTS IN LPEX EDITOR
Closed as program error.
IBM Rational Developer for z Systems - RDz - v188.8.131.52 behaves differently than ISPF when developers write mixed hebrew and english text using BIDI "visual edit line" in LPEX Editor.
There is no known workaround at this time
1. "Field reverse" mode in context menu was not marked as 'checked' even when this mode was 'on'. 2. In "Replace" mode, on typing, the cursor used to stay put, so the ongoing typing inserted characters at the same position replacing previous by newly typed. 3. In "Replace" mode the "Delete" and "Backspace" worked incorrectly. 4. The "Auto push" mode got interfered with "Field reverse", so on typing the cursor was shown 2 positions left to the character being inserted (in other words caret got advanced to the left with one position gap from inserted character).
"Auto push" and "Field reverse" modes are now mutual exclusive, so when one is turned on, another is turned off and vice versa. "Field reverse" (including accompanying 'replace typing 'mode') is persistent for given document, i.e. if it has been turned 'on' in any VF(Visual Field) invocation, it remains to be 'on' during the following VF use until it gets turned 'off' by the user. "Field reverse" (including accompanying 'replace typing 'mode') is persistent for given document, i.e. if it has been turned 'on' in any VF(Visual Field) invocation, it remains to be 'on' during the following VF use until it gets turned 'off' by the user. On subsequent VF invocations (ALT+) the aforementioned behavior repeats, i.e. caret jumps to the rightmost position suitable for text typing and typing mode switches to 'replace'. All this on condition that line is empty from the caret position to the right (or asterisk is present at the last position). The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V184.108.40.206 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
