Error description

  • The RTF Export function does not insert a page break at the end
    of a section if:
    - the user specified page breaks before object 1, and
    - the last object in a section is a table (symptom I)
        OR
      a section has no child objects (symptom II)
    
    Steps to reproduce symptom I:
    1. Create a formal module with the following contents:
        1 Scope
          1.1  This is a test
        2 References
          (2 x 2 table inserted below Heading 2)
        3 Requirements
          3.1  This is another test
    2. Export to Rich Text Format:
        - General tab:
            Layout = Book
            Include DOORS Heading Numbers is checked
            Issue a warning when an unregistered OLE object is expor
    ted as a picture is checked
        - Advanced tab:
            Break before 1 is selected
            All other fields are grayed out
    3. Open the RTF file with MS Word 2003.  Observe that there is n
    o page break between sections 2 and 3.  This is reproducible wit
    h MS Word 2007 as well.

    1. Create a formal module with the following contents:
        1 Scope
          1.1  This is a test
        2 References
        3 Requirements
          3.1  This is another test
    2. Export to Rich Text Format:

    ****************************************************************
    If you export to RTF, selecting page breaks at level 1, only
    objects which have non-table child objects, will have page
    breaks after them
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to allow objects with table child
    objects to also have page breaks following them.
