Specification document naming
Document names can only contain alphanumeric, space, period, underscore, hyphens characters.
ReqEdit is producing a non sensitive action log (does not contain actual values only actino names) of each opened document.
The log files can be found here %AppData%\..\Local\ReqEdit\ReqEdit\Logger
The log file is really helpful for analysis when ReqEdit crashes.
OLE was is a proprietary technology developed by Microsoft that allows embedding and linking to documents and other objects.
Only ReqIF Archive .reqifz files support this feature
Import large OLE Files in ReqEdit
In some cases memory limitations will limit the OLE object conversion, in this case the OLE object will be wrapped inside an RTF file. Opening the OLE objects will only be possible through MS Word.
For any OLE conversion ReqEdit needs the memory 20 times the size of the OLE object.
Import large OLE Files to DOORS
Exported files that have OLE objects larger than 40-45MB cannot be imported into IBM DOORS that is connected to IBM DOORS server 9.5.
ReqEdit is not able to generate preview images during imports or if they are directly added in the application. A file-type icon will be displayed instead.
Atego Requirements Synchronizer version 2.4 and IBM Rational DOORS 9.5.2. OLE objects can be imported and opened by ReqEdit.
- Export always to an empty directory then archive only the contents of this directory to a zip file
- Check if the ReqIF file and all of the OLE objects are in the root folder of the archive
- Rename the file to .reqifz
- Import this file to ReqEdit
- Edit the file
- Export the file to to IBM Rational DOORS
Import to DOORS 9.4
Extract the ReqEdit exported file to an empty directory before importing to DOORS
If exports are done directly by IBM Rational DOORS, in most of the cases DOORS will not make the preview images. Only a small broken link icon is displayed as a preview image, but the linked OLE object still exists in the export.
Don’t delete the broken image icons, it is important for the linked OLE object.
Copy / Paste
Copy-paste from external sources will remove all formatting from the text.
Image or file copy-paste is not supported.
