How to fix "can't save text library asset" error?

Hello all,

I'm a bit of a newbie to Illustrator and have apparently added something bad to my library. When I try to close the document, I get this helpful message:

"Couldn't save changes to the library asset. A Text library asset can contain only one text element. Ensure that the document has only one text element and save again."

I don't know what to do with this information. I went through my library assets and deleted any text things that looked a little unusual, but I don't know what I'm supposed to be looking for. Meanwhile, I can't save my document until I remove the offending asset. Any advice very much appreciated!

-- Bill

As an update, I "saved as" my file with a different name, and that seems to have solved the problem for some reason. No idea what's going on here if just renaming the file fixed the problem!-- Bill
