Error description

  • Problem
    RTF which contains nested or duplicate header information would
    previously (v9.1) be interpreted correctly. However, in 9.3 any
    text in nested RTF will not show at all.
    
    To Reproduce
    
    With a current object, run DXL such as the following:
    
    '
    Object o = current
    
    o.'Object Text' = richText
    '{\\rtf1\\ansi\\ansicpg1252\\deff0\\deflang1033
    {\\fonttbl{\\f0\\fnil\\fprq1\\fcharset0 Times New Roman;}} {\\b
    Some Value }} {\\rtf1\\ansi\\ansicpg1252\\deff0\\deflang1033
    {\\fonttbl{\\f0\\fnil\\fprq1\\fcharset0 Times New Roman;}}Some
    other value
    {\\rtf1\\ansi\\ansicpg1252\\deff0\\deflang1031{\\fonttbl{\\f0\\f
    nil\\fcharset0
    Tahoma;}}\\viewkind4\\uc1\\pard\\f0\\fs20 And some more.\\par}}'
    
    v9.1 would show:
    
    'Some Value  Some other value And some more.'
    
    v9.3 shows:
    
    'Some Value '
    
    Possible Workarounds
    None, but DXL to convert the value may be possible.
    
    Additional Notes
    If the value is saved as an .rtf file it will open successfully
    in Word, but show blank in Wordpad.

    The rich edit control used in DOORS was updated in DOORS
    9.3.
    Unfortunately Rich Edit Control version is depended on
    current release of Microsoft Office, and each new release of
    MS Office introduces new version of RTF.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Current build (9.3.0.3) of DOORS was able to handle
    concatenated RTF. The fix implemented deals also with embed
    RTF within other one.
    

Temporary fix
