I'm having the same problem.

Using build 847, MS Word 2003 (11.8307.8221) SP3 part of MS Office Professional Edition 2003. English version but everything configured for Portuguese.

I don't know if you noticed but all paragraphs with the bug are formatted as Arabic or Hebrew Language, therefore the writing from right to left and the last character in the beginning of the sentences.

Selecting the text and changing language partially solves the problem, the tricky part is that the problems occurs randomly, hard do identify where, in long documents, the problem is, and with so many inserted text and tags is somehow hard to select the right text without changing other correct and desired formatting. Well, just a clue.

I'm having the same problem too.

I'm using EA 7.5 build 847 and MS Word 10.2627.2625 in spanish.

I reported the bug to Sparx and the answer was:

"We are looking at correcting this in the next release...
In terms of work arounds - if you do have access to the installers for EA builds pre 846 - I would suggest you roll back to this."

The problem is that I only have EA 7.1 build 834, and when i try to generate the RTF document for a model created with build 847, a message box with “Unexpected end of file” appears. Also, when i go to "Edit Template" the application crashes.

I have informed the problem to Sparx but i did not receive any answer.

Does anyone knows where can i find a version pre 846 but that works with a model created with build 847?

Thanks,
Cristóbal.

I still have an installer for the 7.5 844 release.
If you provide me with a location I'm happy to upload that for you.
(it's a bit too big to email)
If you can still wait a few weeks though I'm guessing Sparx will have the 848 released. The 847 was released on 3 th of august and they usually have between 4 to 6 weeks between releases. (in this case they might even try to get the next release out asap as there is this important bug to fix)

Thanks Geert, but Sparx already provide me the installer for build 845.

Also, they said: "we are very close to releasing the 848 build with corrections for this problem".

Just in case you have not noticed the Sparx Announcement, we have just released build 848, primarily to sort out this problem with RTF Notes text. Please download the latest installer asap.

I have downloaded and installed build 848.

I generated the primary set of documents and it appears that the new build has resolved the Right-To-Left problem that we were experiencing.

I will be testing more fully over the next few work days but initial indications are good  (for me at least) ;)

This looks like a big "Wahoo" has to be issued. Build 848 does not seem to show the incorrect behavior any more. Just generated a bunch of specs with around 50 pages and I did not experience any of the aforementioned problems.
So let's hope it does not return and strike back on us :)

Build 848 seems to work correctly. I've tested it by generating some model documentation with arround 100 pages without problems regarding right-to-left pragraphs and umlauts.

Thanks to the Sparx people for fixing the problem.

Just updated to build 849 and the problem appears to be resolved. Thanks Sparx!
