In my case it is happening on one of my courses but not another.  I have copied the Notepad "information" from the error message pop-up box (several times).  Is something corrupting the file or is it a different issue?  This is the code message I sent to Articulate:

To follow up with this, I did not have this issue with another course.  So I tried the preview mode, slide-by-slide in the one where I was having issues.  It all boiled down to 1 slide!  I saved a test copy of my course, and deleted the "offending" slide and the preview (by slide or by entire project) issue was resolved.  I then copied each object on the offending slide into a new slide (clicking Preview slide between each object) until I isolated the ONE SHAPE (one shape with one word) that caused the problem.  The rebuilt slide has not caused a problem.

I recommend doing the same process.  Every so often there is one slide that has to be rebuilt.  It was just odd that it showed up in the preview functions.

Best to you!
