Error description

  • learTeam Explorer ignores setting of user defined type manager
    (binary elements) if
    the element extension is not added in CTE preferences as binary
    type. If this is not done
    and there are needs to perform some non-trivial merges, instead
    of just 'copy over' you will
    be presented wiht a 'merge dialog'.
    The CTE client should work as the 'native' client and recognize
    the binary element type
    from the 'supertype' used.
    
    WORKAROUND
    When a 'custom' element types is created you need to edit in the
    CTE settings to make CTE
    recognize the element as binary.
