How do I stop "%AF being corrupted?


Eddie Breeveld (6112230) | asked Mar 16 '16, 8:11 a.m.
RQM 5.0.2 iFix006, Firefox 38.7.0
In part of the Steps Description of a test script I have the following

Command line:
"%AFMDIR%\AFM.exe" /w:\\afmfiler\  [...]

after I add this, then save it, close FIrefox, reopen Firefox, browse to the test steps again, these become:

Command line:
"¯MDIR%\AFM.exe" /W:\\afmfiler\  [...]

How do I avoid %AF being corrupted into a overscore character?  Even if I change it back again, the letters are corrupted when I reopen Firefox.   I can't find anything in the RQM documentation about %AF, but that might be the documentation search failing.

There is a defect that is fixed in 6.0.1.  The "AF" after % is treated as hex number for the encoded ¯ character.  You can tweak (not recommended) to enter the encoded value for % so it will be rendered as expect now when you reopen, but once you update to 6.0.1 the encoded value will be rendered as is so you will have problem then.
