Hi Rick,

I was editing the notes in a topic and when I double-click inside the Text Editor itself I got the Foxpro error shown below. I clicked ignore, got another one, clicked ignore again and was then able to close the editor window seemingly without any ill effects. The word I wanted to select (and remove) was gone.

Yes - known issue. I've never been able to track this down. It has to do with the editor losing connection to the FoxPro COM object.

Only seems to happen in the alternate text editor so it should be rare occurrance...

No worries. Just trying to be a good end-user and file decent bug reports. To be honest, I only recently started using the Notes tab and didn't even know there was a fancy editor under the hood until I double-clicked in that control when, lo and behold, that fancy WYSIWYG editor magically appeared.

Yes - much appreciated. This particular error I run into from time to time myself - mostly because I end up in the editor by accident too (although I should be using it more too). Problem is several levels of indirection into that control and somewhere along the line of nested controls the oHelp reference is getting unloaded and I haven't been able to track that one down.
