Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.0.1

    the cursor jumping to an unexpected location, possibly
    resulting in user typo or mistake if the user does not notice.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • After performing a Find All operation in a COBOL file opened in
    System z LPEX, deleting text may result in the cursor jumping to
    an incorrect location.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The COBOL parser was incorrectly resetting all the line classes
    during parsing resulting in the cursor jumping to incorrect
    locations while editing during a filtered view as the result of
    a find all operation.  The COBOL parser will now only reset the
    COBOL parser classes when parsing the line.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
