Error description

  • When we do an export using the light RPE in DOORS 9.3 (File ?
    Export ? Rational Publishing Engine ? PDF), the PDF output
    misses a space in ?page number of Total page numbers? section in
    footer. The issue is seen only if the total number of pages of
    the output document exceeds 10 and it is seen in both book and
    table layout. Attached is the screenshot.
    
    I could reproduce this with standalone RPE 1.1.1.2 and with
    templates (?book.dta? and ?table.dta?) in the location
    ?C:\Program
    Files\IBM\Rational\DOORS\9.3\lib\dxl\standard\export\RPE_light\s
    ource\DOORS\examples?.
    
    To workaround this issue I have edited the templates with an
    extra space before the ?Total Pages Number? field. This looks
    good from the 10th page onwards but in turn added an extra space
    before the ?Total Pages Number? field in pages 1-9.

    The PDF output misses a space in ?page number of Total page
    numbers? section in footer. The issue is seen only if the
    total number of pages of the output document exceeds 10.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Improved the way the "Total Page Numbers" element is
    rendered in the PDF output.
