      It seems there are some issues with the new patchlevel regarding sidepanels and SAP GUI Transactions.

      • If you hit enter very fast after you type in a transaction name (before a suggestion for the transaction appears in the dropdown)  no sidepanel is displayed


      • If you select the transaction from the dropdown the sidepanel is displayed (as it should):


      • The first time you call a SAP GUI transaction tagging is not working properly, so that no content is displayed in the sidepanel   
        • i.e. MM03: first call MATNR is not transfered to the sidepanel



        • second call of MM03: MATNR is transfered, sidepanel working as it should


        Kind regards,

        Hello Hannes,

        Thanks a lot for reporting this issue. I contacted our Developers, and they asked to open an incident on this issue to investigate this further, so please open one.

        Thank you and best regards

        Hey Hannes Ladstätter,

        the tagging problem you describe already existed in PL11. I kind of thought I was doing something wrong there... we use it on /BSSP/:TKNUM (in transactions VT01N - VT03N).

        And as per Melinda Ludanyi 's comment, we'll open a ticket for that.
