Problem with exporting linked story as incopy file

Jun 15, 2011 6:32 AM

Hi All,

 

I am facing problems while exporting all stories on a document as incopy files. I am using Edit->Incopy->Export->All stories & graphics command. The document contains a lot of out of page text boxes and a huge linked story flowing through a number of linked textframs, This linked story makes actual content. The story also contains inflow images & tables. While performing above export command I get incopy files for all graphics and out of box textboxes but not for the major linked content.

 

This is a document provided by one of my client. I am actually a plugin developer and don't have very deep designing knowledge. I am trying to figure out what could be the possible reasons for this issue.

 

I have tried same command with only two text box as linked frames. It creates the incopy file. What I could have done wrong with my document. Any suggestions will be welcome.

 

Thanks

D

    Export to IDML and compare the IDML attributes of the textframes.

    Well, this sounds like a bug, and you'll need to contact Adobe Support and get a bug filed in order to have it fixed.

     

    If you can produce a small reproducible test case and export it as a snippet, you could paste it here and we could look at it.

     

    You can probably generate the InCopy ICML file by hand though. Export your story as a snippet, then remove the XML, then export your story as InCopy. Then edit the ICML file in a text editor and paste in the appropriate portions of the snippet.

     

    This is not an acceptable workflow and I don't know how far it is going to get you (perhaps InCopy will choke on the same XML for the same reasons?).

     

    You are using the current version? 7.0.4 or 7.5.1?

    There were fairly few changes in XML from CS5.5 to CS6, so I would doubt it.

    But we never had a really clear reproduction case for this problem from Divya Jain, so I dunno.
