Problem with Copy/Paste from Word (Text is not wrapping)

Katie,

	This is error is because CLAN has no access to "/Users/kellysaenz/Applications/CLAN/work/" folder. First, I would ask if this folder does actually exist on the hard drive. Second, is the person who is running CLAN is logged in as "kellysaenz", otherwise, CLAN has no permission to write to other user's folder.

Try copying the "COBIVA006_Transcription_Round1trial.cha" file to some other location where you can copy it to and then run CLAN on that folder.


Leonid.

When pasted into the CHAT file, the screen extends instead of wrapping to create the regular 'paragraph-type' formatting.
