Error description

  • Problem
    When entering backslashes or curly parentheses in discussions,
    these will not appear when you use a Discussion layout DXL
    column to display them in a column. They will appear if you
    escape them using a backslash
    
    To Reproduce
    - create a new module
    - create an object. In place edit on the object text and paste
    the following into the 'comment' field
    
    \
    \\
    {
    }
    \{\}
    
    - add a Discussion layout DXL column
    
    The column which has been created will contain:
    
    \par \
    
    
    {}
    
    The behaviour is similar in the 'summary' field. Entering \{\}
    will give you '{}'. Curly parentheses or backslashes need to be
    escaped to be displayed correctly.
    
    Possible Workarounds
    none really.
