  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Problem is with the DOORS handling non displayable pictures in
    objects. When converting RTF to DRML, non displayable pictures
    return 0 to RPE, which while processing returns error. Either
    DOORS must not allow adding these kind of pictures to object or
    must handle them smooth once allowed.
    
    While exporting object image, there is no check done by DOORS to
    verify if the picture is valid or not. When the picture is not a
    valid one, accessing picture values without null pointer check
    is causing DXL runtime errors. Fix needed for 'drmlText' perm in
    DOORS
