Hello everyone, Two weeks ago, I sent a message about a problem I was having importing Word RTFs into Frame 6 (Mac). The solution, in the end, was to import them using "RTF_Japanese_Import."
Since then, a new glitch has developed -- it won't import any text in tables. The tables come in, but their cells are empty. It also won't recognize non-breaking spaces. The French accents remain as they should be. Even an RTF file I'd previously imported successfully now imports without the contents of the tables. Any ideas? Will I have to reinstall OSX 10.3?
