Resolved issues

Outlook

  • This change addresses delays when processing images with malformed or invalid protocol information.
  • This change fixes an issue where the latest changes to draft emails were not being updated.
  • Fixed an issue where right-mouse clicking on a file and using ‘Send to’ would not work.
  • Fixed an issue where if a user had a customized the search path for the Address book, Outlook’s name resolution scope would be limited to the customized path rather than including the Global Address List (GAL).
  • Fixed an issue where within a set of returned search results, sorting the results by Categories would not display the Category colors.

Project

  • Fixed an issue where the ‘ProjectBeforeTaskChange’ Visual Basic Applications (VBA) event did not fire when a user clicked the “Inactivate” button found on the Tasks Ribbon within the Scheduling grouping.
  • If you set predecessor or successor details from within a Form type view, the ProjectBeforeTaskChange Visual Basic Applications (VBA) event didn’t always capture the changes. For example, if you deleted a dependency and clicked OK on the form, the event did not fire. This behavior has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where the latest values for the Actual Cost of Work Performed (ACWP) would not be displayed after making a change, such as a date change.

  • This change fixes an issue where if you created a manual task with a start date and a time (but no duration), it would be displayed with an incorrect time on the timeline.
  • Fixed an issue where printing a timeline using Hijri calendar would result in a month being skipped or duplicated in the print view.
  • This change addresses an issue where working in Team Planner with GDI objects, could result in the over allocation of GDI objects and create low memory conditions.

Word

  • Fixed an issue where the functionality to post comments was disabled.
  • This change addresses delays when processing images with malformed or invalid protocol information.
  • This change addresses an issue where the account manager would not dispatch messages resulting in a hang with third party applications.
  • This change fixes an issue where the Table of Contents would get updated with heading styles which were not present in the document.
  • Fixed an issue where digital signatures saved in Word documents would be removed when mailing the documents.
