Error description

  • Problem
    When you export a module from DOORS to Word which has an
    attribute for which there are frequently blank values you may
    see a noticeable increase in the space between objects in the
    resulting Word document. In DOORS 9.2, for an object that has a
    blank attribute and also object text, where blank attributes are
    output to Word, the style following the heading will not be
    returned to 'normal' as happens in DOORS 8.3.
