Known Issues[edit]

We recommend to use the Firefox browser for the ViRR application. Although the application is tested and works in various browsers, Firefox was identified as the most stable and fastest browser.

  • When moving structural elements in the TOC tree of the Editor Workspace, the Internet Explorer does not refresh the page when an element is moved to the first or the last position on a level. This seems to be bug of the Internet Explorer, not working correctly with Trinidad elements and therefore can not be fixed.
