Additional blank lines in Operation "Comments" in M ethods Mast

Greg:

Moved from 5.10.118 to 5.10.129 this weekend, and wouldn't you know it: In
patch 122 there is a fix for extra carriage returns following the comment
text and operation text in the traveler! Just shows that when a file says
"read me" it is often a good idea to do so.

Sorry that I insisted it must be user error. So that would be my bullfrog
for the week.


Lydia

Subject: [Vantage] Additional blank lines in Operation "Comments" in
Methods Master and Job Traveller

I have something pretty odd happening here that I can't figure out (we're on
5.110.114). We use the operation comments section in the methods master for
most of our job instructions like most of you I would guess. Recently,
without apparent pattern or reason, "some" of the comments sections now
have additional blank lines. It looks like each line got an extra carriage
return. It both displays on screen and prints what looks to be double
spaced.

The funny thing is it is not universal. Not all operations are affected and
not all parts. It does not appear to be related to when it was last
updated, copied to another BOM, unapproved and reapproved, solar winds, or
planetary forces. Any ideas?

A real stab in the dark but....any chance the offending ones are typed
somewhere else and cut/pasted in? Perhaps typed in Word or Wordpad for some
other document and "copied" in the operation? As opposed to typed directly
into the field. Some text editors handle wordwrap and CR differently.

We have a guy in planning who wants the travelers to come out a certain way,
so he adds blank lines and a period at the end of the line...this sounds
like one of those kind of incidents. Anybody with OCD in your planning
area?
