Attributes PM16993 When an enumerated attribute is configured to be multi-valued, and it has a default value, you can attempt to edit in the attributes dialog box when you are in shareable edit mode. The list of options for default value should be grayed out.
PM08039 If you use RDS for authentication, values assigned to attributes can fail to appear, or can fail to be recognized as valid when assigned.
PM25835 Attributes of the Username type cannot have a value other than the currently logged in username when configured with RDS.
Change Proposal System PM28011 Where insertion Change Proposals (CPs) exist within a group, and those CPs suggest values for the same new attribute, a conflict error is reported. Since the attribute values suggested apply to different objects (the new objects) there should be no conflict.
Dialog Boxes PK96101 The database properties window jumps if a user selects it and its tabs when the Rational DOORS client machine has the DPI setting at 120.
PM07477 The Japanese translation of the Views menu is incorrect in two places: the label for the Views menu and the View option that is displayed when you right-click the menu bar of a formal module.
Discussions PM18088 If you are entering a comment, and you change the status of the View Closed Discussions check box, the discussion collapses and you lose any comments that you have entered.

DXL PK84551 On rare occasions, modules demonstrate a performance issue where a module with just 7,000 objects takes 90 seconds to save, even when you do not modify the module.
PK97148 When using the draw perm: 1. The Y coordinate is not the baseline (bottom of characters), but the top of characters. 2. When drawing a label, the background is modified (the text appears to have a white background).
PM11682 The DXL security of the Rational DOORS system has been improved to allow only trusted DXL to be incorporated into the system when the corresponding security functionality is enabled.
PM24338 The create() perm appears to succeed when creating types in read-only mode. It should return an error, but it does not.
Word Export PM18324 When a specific template is used to export to Word, the first headings are largely missing (replaced with a solitary letter "r"). Subsequent headings may also be missing, and there may also be other extraneous "r" characters instead of empty object text.
PM11348 Exporting to Word omits numerical characters that are not prefixed by non-numerical characters in Analysis wizard columns.
Filtering PM18334 In the advanced filter definition, when Is Empty or Is Not Empty conditions are set for enumeration type attributes, Rational DOORS displays attribute Is Empty attribute value.
PM09630 When you attempt to add a specific filter (using a combination the mouse and the keyboard), Rational DOORS throws the following DXL error: -R-E- DXL: attribute must be multi valued.
Find/Replace/Goto PM01773 When using Find, if a user edits an object's text, and then clicks Find Next without clicking out of the object, any changes to the text are lost and the user is not informed.
PM04589 Two types of database search have started to fail: - name and description searches involving both the "." character and asterisks as wildcards. - contents searches as above, but also using the Use wildcards option.
Graph wizard PM01658 When you use the graph wizard, choosing the bar chart option, and then choosing the labels option results in no labels being visible.
History PM10223 Making history viewable in redlining mode makes parts of the GUI misleading.
PM15123 A user only needs modify access to a module in order to turn on or off the generation of link history.
Installation PM00175 When Rational DOORS is installed on a UNIX system, the file ownerships are not set correctly. The installation process suggests that you name the user doors. But if you do so, you will find that some files are owned by root and some by user 2010.
Manage Users PM06358 If you are using RDS in corporate mode, a user that contains brackets "(" or ")" in their DN will not be able to log in to Rational DOORS.
OLE PM10976 Running oleActivate on an object with a static DIB image throws an error that says "This picture or object is static and may not be activated." and then the perm returns "true". If the OLE cannot be activated it should print "false".
Partition Rejoin PM22280 When you partition out a module excluding a particular attribute and then create that attribute (same name, type, etc) in the Away database, the rejoin will fail with the error "Rejoin failed: Failed to rejoin partition"
RIF PM19811 When you export a RIF definition in which a module has a layout DXL column that uses DXL to trace changes in a target module, and the 'locks for local data' is set to 'no locks' or 'no locks. exported data is read only', then an error is displayed when you try to export the RIF partition, and it will fail.
PM18310 RIF packages can fail to import with the error "SAX Parsing Fatal Error Failed to import RIF" as a result of bullets.
Suspect Links PM19077 When link suspicion is cleared, an exclusive lock is taken on the link module involved, and is not released until the formal module is closed. This prevents other users from clearing suspect links that use the same link module.
PM23705 With RDS in Corporate Mode, search is indexed for common attributes. However, the search for tdsosntusername is not indexed. This is an invalid call as this attribute is used only in standalone mode. In corporate mode this call should not be made.
Views PM09856 When you already have a module open with the Manage View option window open, and you then open another module (after the alert is displayed that says the lock for the module is available), if you make changes to the second module and try to save it, Rational DOORS throws a DXL error.

Access Controls PK98930 If an attribute has "None" access to "Access (Definition)" and "R" (or above) access to "Access (Value)", such attributes are not included in "Find" operation.
PK90347 When a user creates a baseline for a module that has links coming from a different project that has both the source and link module where they have NO access to the other project, the source links disappear for all users in the current version and baseline of the module.
PM14559 With a database name containing hyphens, it is not possible to preserve specific access rights when you restore to the same database. Instead, the permissions are set back to inherited.
Attributes PK99389 There are circumstances involving a long series of steps around inserting columns and changing such columns to be different attributes, where the following system attributes can be edited: - absolute number - created by - created on - last modified by - last modified on
PM07151 If there is an attribute (module or object) that contains a large amount (hundreds of kb) of xml as its value, certain operations will take considerably longer than previously.
PM09120, PM10061 Selecting an attribute by pressing a letter (under Tools -> Filter -> Define, activating the "Attribute" pull down) no longer moves from attribute to attribute, if those attributes have the same first letter .
PM12881 If you have an attribute that is based on the 'user name' type, removing the user from the database on which values are based will remove the data from display in any baseline.
PM14799 In a module, if there exists a multi-valued attribute that has multiple values assigned for objects within the module, and you remove that multi-valued status, a diagnostic log is displayed.
Cut, Copy, Paste PM13087 When you cut an object that has a deleted child object and then try to save the module, you will be asked if you want to delete or restore objects that are on the clipboard. Choosing 'restore' will undelete the child object.
Database Server PM16734 Long folder names (around about 800 characters, but less than the 980 character limit) can cause Rational DOORS to crash.
PK90667 The following error message can sometimes occur when you try to insert a new object:?-R-E- DXL: creating object: Lock request timed out.
Rational DOORS and Rational Quality Manager integration PK89797 When you try to send object text that contains upper ascii characters from Rational DOORS to Rational Quality Manager, the following error message is displayed, and a test plan is not created. Error message: The command could not be executed.
PK91102, PK98897 When you export requirements from Rational DOORS to Rational Quality Manager, the following error is message is shown: "An error occurred while exporting data to Rational Quality Manager. (500) Internal Server error".
PM13494 When using the Rational Quality Manager Interface for Rational DOORS it is not possible to generate a Trace report when a table is in the module.
PM13499 When using the Rational Quality Manager Interface for Rational DOORS it is not possible to run a test report when requirements are after a table object.
DXL PM18923 The DXL documentation example for setLocale is incorrect.
PK99275 You cannot attach a callback to a field DBE because this function is not called if the user types ENTER when the field has the focus, which is the expected behavior.
PM02209 There are occasions that result in attribute DXL being executed more than once. If you assign either null, or an empty string, or make no assignment, the DXL will be run 3 times (occasionally 4 times) for both string and text type attributes.
PM08545 In the Rational DOORS 'DXL Reference Manual' under 'Operating System Interface > Operating System commands > system' an incorrect example is given to demonstrate use of the system perm to run DOS commands.
PM12860 When you are using the Rational Directory Server, the "for User in userList" and "for Group in groupList" do not work.
PM16375 Add ins locations are not picked up by Rational DOORS when it is running in batch mode. Using exactly the same settings in non-batch mode is successful.
Excel Export PM18401 Exporting large modules to Microsoft Excel performs poorly in 9.2.x compared to 8.3. Specific data can show a decrease in performance up to 800%.
Find/Replace/Goto PM15646 If you do a Find in a module window to search for some text, and then press ESC intending to close the Find window, both the Find window and the formal module close.
HTML Export PM17692 Exporting to HTML when in a Japanese locale fails when there are Rational DOORS tables in the module. A DXL error occurs and the export is halted before completion. DXL error is "Unknown Object attribute (Main column attribute)...".
OLE PK84415, PK84479 Visio 2002 OLE objects cannot be activated upon double-clicking or trying to open them. Sometimes this works randomly and the object is opened for editing. The errors experienced in this situation are "Unable to activate OLE object!" or "static metafile".
PM06684 If you insert a Word 2007 table either through Insert > OLE object or via Edit > Paste Special into a user-defined attribute, and then try to activate it and then deactivate it, the display of the table will disappear.
PM06686 If you have Word 2007 present on your system and you insert a Word 2007 table (either through Edit > Paste Special > MS Word object or through Insert > Object > File) into a user-defined attribute column, the OLE object can be edited only once.
PM10496 If you create an OLE object in an object with no other text in it, subsequently removing it will not purge the deferred data file. This results in orphaned data files within the Rational DOORS database and could potentially lead to problems like backups taking longer than they should do.
PM11092 If you insert an OLE object that is wider than the main column, when you try to in-place edit it, you will not be able to return to Rational DOORS by deactivating it by clicking elsewhere in the module display. When you try to click elsewhere, the menu bars do not return to Rational DOORS. The only way you can get them back is to shut down the Rational DOORS session and start again.
PM14473 Scrolling in a module that contains a large OLE object results in performance degradation. As well as the size of the OLE itself, the size of the column in which it is shown also plays a part. A very small change in column size can make the difference between acceptable scrolling, and slow scrolling performance.
Rational Directory Server PM16147 When users are migrated from Rational DOORS to Rational Directory Server, no attempt is made from the Rational DOORS side to establish and migrate the user first name.
RTF Export PM04519 If you export to RTF, selecting page breaks at level 1, only objects that have non-table child objects will have page breaks after them.
Symbols PM11707 If you insert an em or en dash into object text, they will be converted into hyphen minus characters. An en dash is a small hyphen type character and an em dash is a larger one. Both look different from the standard hyphen-minus which you get on a keyboard.
PM18934 When inserting an 'up-arrow' symbol using Insert -> Symbol from within a Rational DOORS module, the symbol is not inserted.
User Options PM00179 The login_history.txt file uses timestamps from the local client machines time zone. This affects the readability of the file, which may lead to confusion.
PK95417 When the 'Reviewers can edit CPs check box' on the Change Proposal System window is cleared, you cannot use the scroll bar to read the full contents of an object. When you open any link that needs iexplore.exe, the following error is displayed: Failed to start browser. Is your browser configuration correct:%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Views PM12637 When you try to inherit settings from a view that has custom access (rather than public or private), you will get an exception and DXL error when you try to save the view. The error is: -R-E- DXL: An unexpected error has occurred
Wizards PM14451 The Analysis wizard does not allow end-to-end traceability analysis when a module in the traceability chain has a default view set that shows only those objects with no links.
Word Import PK83601, PK93387, PK95699, PM06053 When exporting data from Word to Rational DOORS that contains OLE objects, there were occasions when OLE objects would be exported twice, one of the instances being a blank OLE.
