Text is being added when uploading files

We are using Collaborator v11.5.11504. When uploading cpp files we have seen extra text characters being added.  Example mwsType = "atw" becomes mwsType = "<<atw" and mwsType = "uv" becomes mwsType = "<<uv".  The extra "<<" characters are not there when doing a file compare prior to upload.

 

Has anyone else seen a similar error?

Yes.  When I modify a file and upload the change with Collaborator Client (9.0) I see spurious characters in the new text:



171 171 default:
172 172 break;
173 173 }
174 «
175 station = FILLING;«
The spurious character («) is usually at the end of a line, but sometimes at the beginning.  It does not appear in my source files.

I see this post is 8 months old.  Did you ever get a resolution?

The "<<" and ">>" characters represent insertion and deletion markers.  See this KB article:
