Error in continued Map Titles

Symptom

When you continue a Map Title and save your FS Pro 2013 document as PDF, the continued Map Title shows the following error:

Error! Use the Home tab to apply Heading 4; Map Title to the text that you want to appear here

Cause

This error is caused a wrong field reference in Word because of the user's regional settings in Windows. FS Pro is looking for the style Heading 4, Map Title (Heading 4 - comma - Map Title) but the field refers to Heading 4; Map Title (Heading 4 - semicolon - Map title) because 2 users with different regional settings have worked on the document/template.

Solution

Proceed as follows to resolve this issue:

Step

Action

1

Open your Word document.

2

Right-click the field of the continued Map Title and choose Toggle Field Codes.

Result: You will see something like {STYLEREF "Heading 4; Map Title" /* MERGEFOMAT}

3

Change the semicolon between Heading 4 and Map Title to a colon, or vice versa. 

4

Press F9 to update the field

5

Repeat steps 2 to 4 until all field codes for the continued Map Titles are updated.

Tip: you may have to do this for continued Block labels as well. Then the style is Heading 5; Block label. 

6

Save the document in Word and save it as PDF again. 

Result: This error will not occur anymore.
