Error description

  • When a Microsoft Word document that contains both Hebrew and
    English Text is imported into DOORS. The resulting Module has
    the Hebrew and English Text mixed up.
    
    This makes the text unreadable in DOORS.
    
    - Saving the Word document as a RTF file and importing it into
    DOORS too results in the same behavior.
    
    No workaround found.
