Error description

  • If you setup a hyperlink in Word such that the text displayed is
    something other then the link address itself, then copy it into
    DOORS and export it out again to either Word or HTML, the
    resulting link will be broken.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - in Word enter some text (e.g. google) then select it and open
    the Edit/Insert Hyperlink dialog
     - specify the address http://www.google.com/
     - ensure the link can be followed
     - copy and paste the link into DOORS object text
     - verify that the link still appears the same and can still be
    followed
     - export the module to Word or HTML
    
    The resulting link can't be followed. Observing the properties
    of the link in Word shows the address now as 'HYPERLINK%20'
    
    Introduced since 9.2.0.5.
