Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 19.0.0.1 or 20.0  and use the
    Python
    Integration Essentials. From the SPSS Community on IBM
    DeveloperWorks you downloaded and installed the TEXT extension
    command.
    
    Using the Python TEXT extension command, you run this command
    below as an example.
    TEXT "<html><font face="Verdana" size="6"
    color="#00AEEF">Section C. 2.1. " + "more text" +
    
    "</font></html>".
    
    Then you saved the resulting Viewer SPV file, close the output
    window, and reopen the file.
    
    You notice that the initial output in the Viewer is correct.
    However, When reopened, the text block formatting is lost.
    Furthermore, the log item that should show the command now shows
    the formatted text.
