FIX: Print Footer Options Reset to &P in Visual Workbench

  • Microsoft Visual Workbench for Windows, when used with:
    • Microsoft Visual C++ 1.5 Professional Edition

If you choose Page Setup from the File menu in the Visual Workbench and delete all footer options, the &P option is the default. If you then later choose Page Setup from the File menu, the &P option returns.


The parser for the Footer options box does not maintain an empty string. If one is found, the &P option is inserted to include the page number.

You can enter a single space in the options string, which will function the same as having no options. However, this is maintained only during the current Visual Workbench session. When the Visual Workbench is executed again, the &P option is reinserted.


Select one of the centering options, &L or &C or &R. Because there is no other text desired, these options will not have any effect other than to keep the Visual Workbench from inserting the &P option.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft Visual Workbench version 1.0 for Windows and Microsoft Visual Workbench, 32-bit Edition, version 1.0. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Visual C++, 32-bit Edition, version 2.0.
