Description mux2005 2008-01-21 10:16:40 UTC
Section 8.3.1 "Word Processing", subsection "AutoText" is very incomplete and the example does not work, at least under Unix. There is no documentation on the magic groupname + "*" + number syntax and the example source code doesn't use it. Because of this, the example tries to write to the first path component of the AutoText path, which is the shared directory. Since users don't usually have write access to this directory under Unix (and may not have write access to it under Windows if they don't work as Administrator all the time) the example fails (with an unspecific RuntimeException with no detail message, hence no clue for the developer what went wrong). Please fix this. See issue #85426 for a list of the information that I'd like to see included.

jsc -> tl: can you take care of this. Any changes on the DevGuide will be made in the new Wiki only. jsc -> mux2005, ones the wiki Devguide is available you are invited to help to improve the documentation. The same is true for the IDL documentation. Append your extended IDLs files to an issue and submit it to me or tl for review.
