Error description

  • The default mode when opening source in Rational Developer for i
    (RDI) 9.6.0.6 with the Remote Systems LPEX Editor is to open for
    Edit.  This default can be changed to Browse when the preference
    "Open source in browse mode" is enabled.  When this is selected
    then option 2 (Edit) in the Object Table view will incorrectly
    open the source in Browse mode when it should be opened in Edit
    mode.
