ERROR "Attribute 'name' is not allowed to appear in element 'bpmn2:textAnnotation'" appears in server.log when using Text Annotation

Solution Verified - Updated -


In Business Process Designer, if there is text annotation, the following error appears in server.log frequently, such as when saving, validating and building.

18:18:03,198 ERROR [org.drools.core.xml.ExtensibleXmlParser] (default task-1) Process Info: id:textAnnotationErrorReproducer.test, pkg:com.cee, name:test, version:1.0 
Node Info: id:_AAE5CEFC-FB8F-4C61-8D8C-0C7B3AFD3472 name:Text Annotation 
Parser message: (null: 31, 93): cvc-complex-type.3.2.2: Attribute 'name' is not allowed to appear in element 'bpmn2:textAnnotation'.

But validation and build will succeed and the process works without any problem.
Are there any problems with the use of text annotations?
