Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1.1.2, when
    clicking between 2 characters, the cursor is placed before the
    character on the left side of the click position rather than
    between the 2 characters.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1) For example with word "MOVE", click between O and V
    2) Expected result is to have the cursor placed between O and V
    but result is that
    cursor is placed before O
    

Local fix

  • Either click on letter V rather than between O and V or click
    very close to the left of V.
    

Problem summary

  • In Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1.1.2, when
    clicking between 2 characters, the cursor is placed before the
    character on the left side of the click position rather than
    between the 2 characters.
    

Problem conclusion

  • LPEX was changed so that when in insert mode, a bounding box
    making up half of each adjacent character is used to determine
    where to position the cursor after a click, that is, in between
    the two characters. In insert mode, the bounding box of each
    character is used instead, as in the existing functionality -
    clicking anywhere in a characters bounding box will cause the
    cursor to be positioned at the start of that character.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
