Documaker Core
BugDB# Description
14323843 This patch corrects a GENDATA endless loop condition that can occur when the GroupBegin section level rule is used along with the GroupPagination function, and the section that is split is too large to fit on the page.
14240359 This patch fixes a problem where the Move_It field rule would not apply the specified formatting parameters if the Move_It rule was preprocessing data on behalf of the JustFld or MoveExt field rules.
14504673 This patch fixes a problem where automatic page numbering would not always produce the correct page numbers if the reserved page numbering fields were embedded in a text area.
14672541 This patch fixes potential program exceptions that could occur when using a DAL trigger with an XDD field reference to a field that uses the AnyToAny rule with an XML input file. Using the AnyToAny rule within a DAL trigger with an XDD source type of Alphanumeric would result in a crash on Linux in 12.1 if the record was not found or the requested data was empty.
14780544 This patch causes GENDATA MergeWIP processing to issue a warning message if a transaction, retrieved from WIP, does not have any forms triggered.
14711368 This patch fixes a problem where the months of September and November were spelled incorrectly for the "Portuguese/Portuguese" locale.
14306218 This patch addresses the issue of page number fields in the columns and table cell and resolved as '1'.
15941871 This patch fixes a problem where a search mask with a leading space specified for an XDD entry could cause GenData to crash.
16237903 Proof Printer selection is enabled again for dc2octrl in Common Objects 11.3/Printcommander 6.0.17.

Documaker Studio & Utilities
BugDB# Description
14624638This patch corrects an issue with the LBYPROC utility in which the USERID value provided in the library ADD script was ignored, and was not used to populate the UserID field of the library record for the resource that was added to the library.
14174749 This patch fixes a problem in DMStudio where the MAXLENGTH attribute could not be overridden when converting an XSD to a Data Extract (XDD).
14582080 This patch fixes various incorrect content positioning issues for RTF output; in particular, occasional tab stop positioning and spacing between paragraphs.
15851587 Inserting a field into a text area from the XDD was not consistent between inserting using drag and drop and the Insert Field dialog. In addition to the field name being incorrect if inserted from the Insert Field dialog the Source Name instance ID was incorrect when inserted using drag and drop if there were multiple instances of the same field in the XDD tree. This patch fixes a problem where an XDD field inserted into a text area using the Insert Field dialog would give the inserted field a system generated name instead of the actual field name. The assigned rule would also be blank instead of XDD.
16204118 Change multiple sections can't process a section if the section name contains periods. Change multiple forms has the same issue. This patch fixes a problem where the feature to make bulk changes to multiple sections or forms would not work if the name of a section or form contained a period.
16305733 This patch fixes a crash in DMStudio which could occur when trying to combine adjacent text labels during the bulk conversion of sections.
16305733 This patch fixes a problem where labels which were not visually adjacent to each could be combined. It also corrects the combining logic so that it adheres to the specifications documented in the "Documaker Studio User Guide" for combining adjacent text labels. Labels which were created in succession but were placed visually out of order would be combined. Any spacing between adjacent text labels would also be unconditionally lost if combined.
15837871 This patch corrects a DM Studio issue in which opening a PAR resource and selecting File->Print, Document View, then printing using the "Form Set" option on the dialog produced empty RTF and PDF documents.
15935981 This patch fixes a problem where the unique ID value for an XDD item would always display the value for the first instance of that item in the XDD Sidebar "preview" window.
15868860 This patch corrects a problem in which, in some situations, deleting a large block of text in a multiline text field, or using Paragraph Selection to change to a smaller set of paragraph text, did not shrink the section back sufficiently to allow the following sections to flow back to the previous page.
16205149 This patch corrects a problem where the last letter in a line of text may be removed when a word has been replaced using the spell checker.
This patch allows users to select Paragraph (PAR) files for conversion in addition to Section (FAP) files when using Conversion / Sections to Print Files in DM Studio.

Documaker Workstation
BugDB# Description
12940504 This patch corrects a Documaker Desktop issue in which the Application Definition File (BDF) was not being reloaded from the library when the Effective Date value on the Forms Selection screen was modified.
9250995 This patch corrects a Documaker Desktop problem in which expired forms, or forms that are not effective yet, are not being filtered from the import process, and are causing platform error messages to be displayed.
14774200 This patch corrects a Documaker Desktop archive retrieval issue in which a field may not display on all the pages of a multipage section.
9677726 This patch fixes possible issue of scrambled logo, when a document is retrieved from archive, stored in Oracle Database.
14217154 This patch addresses an issue where the AddForm DAL function would not honor the placement parameter and would always insert the new form before the targeted form even if instructed to insert after.
14839848 This patch adds the ForceTableOnlySelection option to the Control INI group to allow preventing manual editing of data in table only fields. This option was available in versions of WipEdit prior to Rel. 12.0.

14338400This patch fixes a problem in which the text in the description field of an updated record gets blanked out when running LBYPROC and performing an UPDATE.
14141986This patch consolidates the detectable errors that occur during the sending of email by the SMM library to collect in the error file. To see any EPT debugging messages "Enable_Debug_Options = Yes" must be set in the "Debug_Switches" INI section as well as the individual EPT debug settings (EPT_Debug and EPT_Debug_Lvl2).
13371017This patch changes how duplex setting are applied to a paginated page when the second occurrence of a sub form with the "force page break" option cause pagination and the sub form has a duplex option of "Front Page" or "Back Page".

This patch fixes a problem in LBYPROC when performing ADD with a specific resource name (non-wildcard) in the FILENAME VALUE of the script file. If nothing is specified for the NAME VALUE and TYPE VALUE in the script, the resource file is added to the library without a name and without a type.
When a form includes a multipage section and the option "Background section" is specified on that section, the resource file was not loading properly and blank pages were begin generated.
This patch improves processing performance of documents that that overflow to hundreds of pages and the overflow sections contain form-scope fields.

This patch eliminates an incorrect warning message that indicated all pages of a multipage section would be resized when attempting to resize a section after all pages but the first have been removed.
