In regions where the decimal separator is a comma (,) installing Adobe PDF viewer version 10.1.1* can cause Visual LANSA Framework filters and the instance lists to disappear.
* Adobe may also automatically update your PDF viewer to this version.
For instance, when the PDF viewer is used in a business object:
Clicking on the business object (hence displaying the PDF) causes the filter and instance list to disappear:
The reason for this is that the decimal separator has not been handled correctly.
Adobe has documented a similar error on their website (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/907/cpsid_90705.html), in a section on PDF printer.
While the symptom for this error is different, the root cause is the same (the handling of the decimal separator character).
A change has been implemented in EPC870 for Visual LANSA Framework to handle the latest version of Adobe PDF reader without the filter or instance list disappearing as a result.
Refer to EPC870 in the EPC information page.
