This just started happening today (11/23/2020), but I haven’t used the compile feature for a few weeks. When I compile my project and export it as a DOCX file, I get this funky error:
I click YES and get this:
[attachment=0]Yeah, it doesn’t do that[/attachment]
Which, despite instructions, doesn’t do anything (selecting items and clicking GO TO does nothing). When I click CLOSE, I get my document and all seems well, but the problem persists after I save and try to reopen it. Even if I rename it.
A few weeks ago, I was playing around with the new compile stuff (it’s so much faster!) and I wasn’t having this problem.
My work around here was to save the file as a .DOC file (Word 97-2004), which seems to have dropped whatever unreadable bits there were. When I saved it back to a .DOCX format, Word opened it without error.
Has anybody had this happen to them? Any ideas on what the problem could be?
Thanks for the quick response. As an update, I tried compiling a newer (and smaller) project and had the same error. I’d be happy to share my project with you. Let me know what the best way to do that is.
I am having precisely the same problem as reported here. The struggle with Word is the same, as well: I can’t actually use the Word message box to locate what they’re complaining about! Although I have noticed that the latest compile is changing a bulleted list in my MS to a numbered one in Word, FWIW.
This is a large (210K word) MS I’ve been working on for a long time and compiling to docx without these difficulties, so I suspect 3.2.1 (or, possibly, a change in the behavior of Word for Mac. (Word version 16.43 (20110804))
