  1. Help! I used this with no problems in my file earlier. Now I'm getting an error and can't export my view schedule.

    "A transaction or sub-transaction was opened but not closed. All changes to the active document made by External Command will be discarded."

    I created a detached version of the project in case it was an issue of editability. No luck.
