Greetings from a chilly Scotland,
I have a strange behaviour with change bars which is quite undesirable,
where change bars become excessively long. I found this with a
structured XML document, but the same occurs with unstructured
documents, and the behaviour occurs in FM 10, 11 and 12.
The scenario is a simple unstructured document containing the following:
x a 1
y b 2
z c 3
and a table is added to the end of each of the lines. Select the letter
a, and then select menu item: Format > Style > Change Bar. The line is
correctly marked with the change bar. But when same action is performed
for the letter b, the change bar is extended between the 'x a 1' line
including the table. Repeat the same for the letter c, and now the
whole document has a change bar!
This is NOT useful, as the table content hasn't been changed - it's just
the lines where the table anchor are located that have changed.
I would have expected just the line to be marked with the change bar -
as the MIF of the document clearly has the table anchor outwith the
'change bar' tagged text.
I can add a line-feed character, or add an extra paragraph before the
table anchor to circumvent the long change bar effect, but my client
does not like this.
Could this be considered a bug?
