Hi

I'm trying to create a multi state object that contains a table within a scrollable frame.

I tried it using the scrollable frame overlay.

When adding a new article I get a "content generation error Unknown error code"  when canceling InDesign get quite stuck untill it crashes.

Just for testing, when I'm converting the table to text all Ok.

 

I'm using:

InDesign 5.5

Producer tools ver 1.9.0

Builder panel 12.1.3

 

Is it a bug??

 

Any help will be appreciated,

Thanks

    I've run into the same problem. Latest folio builder and producer tools, CS5.5, mac.

    Tables within scrollable, within MSO = crash. Same scrollable in MSO w/o tables works fine.

    I've rebuilt the table as individual text boxes, inserted into scrollable and then in to MSO. Works.

     

    I really prefer to use tables to organize this content. Perhaps we can have a fix soon?

     

    Thanks!

    I think the crash has nothing to do with DPS.
    I cannot confirm that building a MSO with a table inside put to use with Scrollable Frame will crash InDesign.
    Just tried…

     

    My configuration is:

    Mac OS X 10.6.8
    InDesign CS5.5 v7.5.2

     

    Adobe DPS version:

    plug-in version

    7.5.5.19

    folio format version

    1.12.0

    plist version

    1.3.0

     

    ExtensionBundleVersion

    12.1.3.20120307_m_680879

    Anyone have Suitcase Fusion 3 installed? If so, disable the autoactivation feature and try again.

    I was so wrong in stating that your crash has nothing to do with DPS!

    Sorry for missing this…

     

    NOW I got my crash!

     

    MSO

    state 1 is a text frame with a simple table

    state 2 is a simple rectangle

    state 3 is a simple rectangle

     

    MSO => Slide Show (Overlay Creator)

     

    Some details of the Slide Show properties regarding Overlay Creator (retrieved from an IDMS of that MSO I exported):

     

    <Label>
        <KeyValuePair Key="Type" Value="Slideshow"/>
        <KeyValuePair Key="gs_layerGroup" Value="Ebene 1"/>
        <KeyValuePair Key="AutoStart" Value="true"/>
        <KeyValuePair Key="SS_crossFadeImagesDelay=" Value="3"/>
    </Label>
    

     

    Grouped the MSO with 2 other simple rectangles.
    Cut and paste the group into a rectangle

     

    Rectangle => Scrollable Frame (Overlay Creator)

     

    Properties retrieved from an IDMS file of the rectangle frame:

     

    <Label>
        <KeyValuePair Key="Type" Value="WebView"/>
        <KeyValuePair Key="SS_WebViewOverlayContainer=" Value="true"/>
        <KeyValuePair Key="ScrollableFrameScrollDirection" Value="3"/>
    </Label>
    

     

    Updated article in the Folio Builder.
    After a few seconds InDesign is crashing without warning.

     

    After removing the table there was no crash.
