I have had a similar problem too but Ron and I have struggled to pin it down because the same learning object that behaves badly for me works fine for someone else.

There may have been problems with me pasting hidden characters from a Word document at one point but this latest problem seemed to be more related to my Internet Service Provider because the LO worked fine on 3G but not on my wifi. It was very odd.

Subject: [Xerte] Manual retrieval of the contents of a module?

Hi there,

I have recently been using xerte to develop on-line contents for people with Parkinson's disease in the context of a small EU initiative. Some of the consortium members team have been adapting the content of the modules to the reality of different nationalities.

One of the members is having problems with one of their modules. On their workspace, the object can be edited (the "Edit" button works and, apparently, its properties can be revised and changed) but when trying to Preview the content, an empty window appears. I have also tried to Export the contents of the module but it is not working either. So, the content seems to be there (in the Edit window) but we cannot access it.

I know it is a long shot but, please, could anybody suggest what the problem might be? Would there be any way to "manually" retrieve the contents of the module and then to re-import them?

I can provide additional details if needed.

Many thanks for reading this!

Best wishes,
