    Category Descriptions in the Category Search LOV appear garbled. Why?
    Category descriptions when searching for categories in the Enter Requisition Line page appear garbled and have overriding text display. Why does this happen

    Support / Customers

    Here is a small tip worth noting if you encounter a similar issue.

    We recently triaged a bug where the customer reported a garbled looking description for specific categories when searching for categories using the LOV popup in the Enter Requisition Line page. 

    Our development was able to isolate the issue to a specific root cause:

    The category description in question used an 'Enter' character (basically used Enter and split the description into separate parts) when creating the description. The description in this case was rather long.

    Once the 'Enter' character was removed, the issue was resolved.
