ADE 2.0 warning

I get this warning (see attachment)I'd say once every hour or two when I'm working on ADE 2.0. (transferring an epub back and forth to Sigil)It's not a real deal killer. I just lose ADE and then bring it right back up, but anybody know any easy ways to keep it from happening? Thanks.

I'm not familiar with that assertion error...sorry.

One suggestion though. Instead of putting a picture inside of a .doc and then posting the word document, just upload the picture as a .jpg. That way anyone who doesn't have/use Word will be able to see, and possibly help.

I think you are probably using the print screen function, and then pasting into word. There are a couple other ways to get a .jpg image.

1) instead of pasting into word...paste into the Paint program; then Save As .jpg
2) instead of using the print screen function, use the "snipping tool" under Start/accessories. That will save directly as .jpg.

Cheers!

It's a programming error. An assertion is where you tell the programming language that such-and-such a condition must be true. If the given condition is not true then you get this error. In this case the assertion is "loc != null" i.e. the value of the loc variable must not be null.

What does that mean to you as a user? Not much. It's really only helpful for Adobe programmers.

We could make some educated guesses: "loc" could be a variable for a location of something, e.g. a file. Not being null could mean that it's tried to open the file and it's failing because the file doesn't exist, or isn't in the place it thinks it should be. Normally if it's just a question of a file not existing, that you the user tried to load a file that's not there you'd get a more meaningful error, one targetted at the user e.g. "Could not open file 'blah.epub'". Which makes me think it's something like the file was there one minute and not the next, e.g. maybe it temporarily didn't exist whilst Sigil was saving it (overwriting an old version). All of which is speculation of course, it might not be anything to do with files.

I would try making sure you close down Sigil before opening in ADE (and vice-versa) - make absolutely sure that there's no other program that could be accessing the file whilst ADE is trying to use it.

Yes, was using print screen function. Figured out your #1. But where is the "snipping tool"? (See attachment.) Couldn't find it in my accessories. Is that some kind of software I have to download? If so, do you happen to know the link?

Thanks for this info. It's very helpful.

Thanks Paul. I think your speculation is right (esp. that it "temporarily didn't exist") as I was just flying back and forth between ADE and Sigil. It would be a hassle to close down the programs completely (in terms of time wasted), but I think if I just slow down when I'm switching between them that should do the trick. (If not I'll be back here. lol) Appreciate the help.

Thanks Peter. I'm going to try to slow down switching between the two programs and if that doesn't work I'll try your suggestion.

Sorry, I didn't realize it was implemented in Windows 2007

I did find this with google - I haven't used it but the reviews were good:
Windows XP Snipping tool

or, just paste into Paint!

Cheers!

thanks Dion. I saved that link in case I need it, but you're right, the pasting into Paint is easy enough. Appreciate it.
