CSS Working at Design time but not Run time

Hi everyone - using DS 1.6.3 and finding an interesting issue with CSS. After creating/uploading a Custom CSS for the application, the CSS classes applied to components show up at design time, but not at all at run time. In this example a Panel component has a CSS class applied to make the panel color red... Local mode applications this works just fine - so is it a BIP issue, or a DS bug?

Occasionally (but not always), when opening the application, the following error message will appear in the Error Log:

eclipse.buildId=@qualifier@
java.version=1.7.0_91
java.vendor=SAP AG
BootLoader constants: OS=win32, ARCH=x86_64, WS=win32, NL=en_US
Framework arguments: BusinessObjects Design Studio
Command-line arguments: -os win32 -ws win32 -arch x86_64 BusinessObjects Design Studio

    Hmm... first rule of tech support? Turn it off/back on again, reinstall.... So that seems to have fixed local client errors, so now we're trying to reinstall on BIP...

    ok, did the whole reinstall thing. Here's where we are now:

    We applied 1.6 SP04 and we’re still getting the issues. When I use Developer Tools in IE I see this issue reported when inspecting element:

    HTTP404: NOT FOUND - The server has not found anything matching the requested URI (Uniform Resource Identifier).

    (XHR): GET - https://redacted.com/BOE/OpenDocument/1702162036/zenwebclient/zen/mimes/859410/Root+Folder/Redacted+Reports/css_demo.css?version=Fri+Feb+17+08%3A35%3A39+EST+2017

    I believe it may be related to these two notes, which are close to the issue we have. The problem is we don’t have WebSphere:

    And checking this note - it applies to 4.1, we're on 4.2 SP3:

    And this one - no load balancer, direct to Tomcat server results in same error:

    Hi Byrne,

    Where is this CSS support file located?

    Is it in your Favorite or Public folder make sure your Design Studio Application is in same location.

    Regards,

    Fahad
