Error description

  • The number of '?' and '?' keeps increasing automatically, when
    they are used to enclose hyperlinks or network paths which have
    a space in their address.
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue.
    
    1) Open a module in DOORS
    2) Enter any hyperlink or network path with space in it and
    enclose it with angular braces.
    e.g ?http://my sample website.com?
    3) Save the module and we can see that the number of angular
    braces increases.
    
    The same behaviour is observered if we enter the data in below
    method
    
    1) Right click on object --? Properties
    2) Enter the data in Object text or Object heading field
    3) Click on 'Apply' and the number of angular braces increases.
    
    NOTE: This behaviour is observed only for hyperlinks and network
    paths which has a space in between. For normal text data there
    is no issue.
