Problem:

When using the function ScribeDocSubstitute it does not replace the text.  It instead replaces it to be blank.

 

Versions:

FM Server: Version 13

FM Pro: Version 14

 

Other info:

I have developed in FM Version 13, which the function works in that version with an earlier version of Scribe.  In testing in FM 14 with Scribe 2.15 the words end up blank.  My OS is Mac OSX 10 (Yosemite), and the other person I am developing for has FM 14 on a Mac with Scribe 2.15. I have used Java 8 and then downgraded to Java 6, but there doesn't seem to be a difference.

I was using Content Control fields in MS Word, which supposedly works with the function ScribeDocWriteValue. (It did not when I tried that function.)

When removing the Content Control fields and replacing it with regular text the ScribeDocSubstitute function seems to work.

Hi IT_USER,

Do you get any errors when using ScribeDocWriteValue to write to a content control field? If you call ScribeDocListFields, do you get a list of named fields in the document? If so are you writing to one of the fields in the list?
