Long hyphen character copied from Microsoft Word and pasted into CA PPM is removed when exported into Microsoft Project. Sometimes when this character is exported into MSP, hyphen is replaced with '#x4', although another typical issue is that everything after the long hyphen (including the long hyphen) is not exported.
Steps to Reproduce
- Open a new Microsoft Word document.
- Type Aa - aa. Microsoft Word default autocorrect and autoreplace settings will change it to Aa – aa (hyphen will be a long hyphen or em dash).
- Login to CA PPM.
- Create a New Project .
- Create a New Task by pasting the text from Microsoft Word.
- Save and Return (Expected Result: The text is successfully saved in CA PPM)
- Open the Project in MSP
Expected Result: Project is opened in MSP successfully and the task name would be 'Aa – aa'
Actual Result: Project opens in MSP however, the long Hyphen is removed as well as everything that follows it
