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.
