|In some environments, Typefi Writer and Microsoft Word may not correctly identify Excel elements within a Word document. As a result, you may not be able to edit Excel elements.||To edit Excel elements:
|Microsoft Word automatically translates the names of its built-in styles (for example, English: Heading 1 → Spanish: Título 1) based on the display language setting (File → Options → Language → Display Language), which causes Writer to omit these styles if the translated style name differs from the name used in your Adobe InDesign template.||Rename your InDesign styles to match the translated equivalents for all built-in Microsoft Word styles.|
|Text effects (Outline, Shadow, Reflection, or Glow) are not preserved when converting to Content XML.||Create a character style in the InDesign template.|
|When editing an Element Field, the Edit Element dialogue is empty.||Delete and re-insert the Element—when you re-insert the Element, set the Element Field value.|
|Long filenames are not visible when editing an Image, Audio, or Video Element via the Edit Element dialogue.||Place your cursor in the field and scroll to the left to see the full filename and path.|
|When publishing a document with Track Changes turned on, all Typefi Field codes appear as changed, even though the Field Codes weren't changed.||Turn Track Changes off before publishing a job.|
|If Create InDesign document uses InDesign Server 2020 or 2021, you cannot insert a video Element and publish it. If you try to publish a document with a video Element, you get this error message: Error: Request failed because the underlying functionality is no longer available in the current version of the application. This error occurs because Adobe now blocks Flash content from running.||There is no workaround at this time.|
|When publishing a subset of your Sections, only the last Section is published.||We apologise for the inconvenience. This issue will be addressed in a future version of Typefi Writer.|
