    Project Error Log

Common Errors:

  • File is missing from the project folder. If you receive this error, it is because an object file (photo or text) is missing. If the project is missing a large number of objects, contact Technical Support for assistance ( If there are only a few missing objects, make a note of the missing objects' locations or print the error log, locate the missing objects on their respective pages (photos will be replaced by a dark gray box and text by a yellow box), and replace them with the original file or text.
