Error description

  • Attempting to do a three-way merge for a project results in the
    creation of empty description fields
    
    Error Description:
    Sometimes when you perform a base aware diffmerge you can end up
    with empty description fields in your merged model. These can
    cause differences when involved in further diffmerges, which is
    a fault, since both description fields are empty, yet only the
    ones from the base aware diffmerge are noted in the merged
    packages sbs file.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    This problem can occur when you choose to exit DiffMerge without
    first selecting to save your progress. In order to make sure
    that this problem is prevented, instead of exiting and then
    being prompted to save your diffmerge, you should save your
    diffmerge progress before selecting to exit the DiffMerge
    application.
