IBM Technote on Imported Word Table Captions

I wonder if my last post had anything to do with this.

How to remove “Table” caption prior extracting document in IBM Rational Publishing Engine

What a horrible title for this technote. The “Table” caption comes in as a HEADING, not a caption. And this problem only exists in exports from DOORS that were brought in from MS Word and that is also not mentioned. The word DOORS isn’t even in the title, which tells me that most RPE customers are using DOORS.

While the information in the technote is valuable, I still can find no actual reason any long time user of DOORS would want invisible table headers to have a heading of “Table” on tables exported to DOORS from Word documents. Unless every DOORS table will always have this heading regardless of where it is created, this “feature” needs to be removed in the next release.
