Section break - problem removing
« on: May 01, 2024, 11:21:41 pm »
I have a section break in a report template, which can't be removed.

I can insert and remove new section breaks but for some reason this one is can't be touched. Any suggestions?

Sometimes these templates get broken.

The only way I know to resolve this is to start a new one, and copy the content you need (without the broken part) to the new template.

You could try exporting to MS Word, editing in MS word and re-import.
Happy to help
:)

The 'Export->Fix in Word->Import' did the trick:

1) Export to Word using 'Edit->File->Save As (Export to File)'
2) Fix the break in Word.
3) Clear the template in EA using 'Edit->File->New (Clear Document)'
4) Import to EA using 'Edit->File->Import File'

Hi,
That's great news. I always thought that these things just get broken sometimes.
Thanks
