HELP! Articulate Storyline Error Report keeps occuring

I am trying to publish a word version of a course.  I keep getting the error report box.  I have tried it 5 times, shutting down in between each time, and starting the publishing process over again.  


Error Report information:

Hi Ken,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing that you're running into an issue during publishing.

I'm curious if the issue happens in any course you are working on or just this particular one?

Otherwise, I want to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening with your permission. You can share it publicly here or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
