Error description

  • The DOORS Info Center for this section
    Configuring ? Configuring the Rational DOORS display? Setting
    your display scheme
    states 'You can use the default display scheme for the database,
    which is set by the database manager, or a different display
    scheme.'
    
    This statement can mislead one to think that the 'database
    manager' is able to define and a new database-wide default
    display scheme under the DOORS Database Properties ? General ?
    Default display scheme.
    
    However, you can only use the 4 display schemes listed there:
    Modern
    Classic
    International Modern
    International Classic
    
    You can not use a custom scheme a 'database manager' has defined
    in their own Tools ? Options ? Display menu.
    
    It seems that it should be explicitly stated that the only other
    'different display scheme' that can be used are customized per
    user in their own Tools ? Options ? Display menu and not a
    database wide setting.
