Error description

  • If a layout DXL column specifies a canvas colour, other layout
    DXL columns to the left which do not specify a canvas colour
    will also have the colour changed.
    
    If more than one column specifies a canvas colour, the one
    located furthest to the right will dictate the colour of those
    which do not specify it.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create 2 layout DXL columns in a module using the following
    code:
    
    Column 1 :
    
    '
    displayRich 'should have a white background'
    '
    
    Column 2 :
    
    '
    DBE canv = getCanvas
    if(!null canv)
    {
        realBackground(canv, realColor_Red)
        realColour(canv, realColor_Black)
        display 'Red Canvas'
    }
    '
    
     - ensure that the second column is positioned to the right of
    the first
     - observe the background colour of the first column, it should
    be white, not red
    
    Workaround:
    
     - explicity specify canvas colours in all layout columns
