Greetings All,

     I am writing a small book, which is nearly done, ready for publication, except.... that any new type turns green.  The previous type stays black.  I can delete the green type.  If I try to delete the black type, it turns red with a line through it.  But editing is impossible.  I cannot make any rational changes to the text.

     This weird thing happened to me some years ago, but I do not recall what the solution was.   Any ideas out there?  The problem seems to be a corruption in the file because I can edit other files with the software.

     So what can I do to save the text so that it is editable?  I am guessing that what I will have to do is removed the text from FM, strip the text of all formatting, hopefully getting a plain text result to strip out the problem, plug the text back in, and reformat.

     Any other shorter way that will not lose all the formatting? 

     And how do I prevent another such event?  Was there something I might have done to cause the problem?

     Could the problem be in the Book file rather than the text file?
