The following list of known issues have been reported to WIPO for versions of WIPO Sequence beginning at version 2.1.0. Version 1.x.x generates sequences according to outdated versions of the Standard and should not be used. Version 2.0.0 was superseded by version 2.1.0 before WIPO ST.26 entered general use and is not supported, but is known to contain some of the bugs described below. The latest version is version 2.3.0 and this is the version we recommend that everyone uses.
The following list of known issues have been reported to WIPO. Please only report to WIPO at firstname.lastname@example.org any issues which are not provided below.

|ST26T-2888||If there is a TAB character in the invention title recorded in an ST.25 sequence listing, during import two Invention titles are created||WIPO Sequence||2.0.0||2.1.0|
|ST26T-2889||Translation qualifier value is not automatically created when user manually creates it||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.2.0|
|ST26T-2882||WIPO Sequence cannot be deployed on Citrix Terminal Server||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||-|
|ST26T-2873||TAB character is not detected in InventionTitle, ApplicantName, InventorName, ApplicantNameLatin, InventorNameLatin during validation process||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||-|
|ST26T-2870||JSON Key rather than the value of the CDS location is shown on banner is shown on the banner when the location is too short||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.2.0|
|ST26T-2762||XML validation does not enforce validation checks for the DOCTYPE declaration||WIPO Sequence||2.0.0||2.1.0|
|ST26T-2885||ncRNA qualifier added when 'n' feature key is imported from an ST.25 sequence listing||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.3.0|
|ST26T-2872||For imported amino acid sequences from a ST.25 sequence listing, mol_type is not automatically set to 'protein'||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.2.0|
|ST26T-2883||Wrong numbering provided during XML validation process with >5k sequences and <10k sequences on pop-up window||WIPO Sequence (Linux only)||2.1.0||-|
|ST26T-2876||No warning message when DNA/RNA sequence includes "n" symbols - should indicate that the default value should be assumed||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.3.0|
When updating manually created nucleotide sequence containing a single "n" symbol - feature location for source feature can be wrong
Workaround: Uncheck "Intentionally skipped" checkbox and add the organism. The location of source feature will become correct.
|ST26T-2900||Event Viewer errors when launching WIPO Sequence||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||-|
In a project, the PDF resulting form clicking the Print button contains a wrong priority date and filing date (it reduces the day by 1).
The table “Invention Title” should contain the following column titles: "Language" "Invention Title"
|ST26T-2905||Non Latin characters not allowed in non English qualifier value. Error returned: "The non English free text must contain only Unicode characters, except the reserved or controlled characters||WIPO Sequence||2.1.0||2.1.1|
After ST.25 import, an error is thrown indicating that the qualifier ID is not unique
Workaround: Delete the feature which includes a duplicate qualifier ID. Recreate the feature at the same location but do not add the qualifier before saving. Next, edit the feature to add the relevant qualifier and update the feature.
Sporadically sequences are generated without a feature table
