Description

6 years ago
I and at least one other are experiencing this problem on Nightly.

While editing a document, suddenly, a message saying "An error has occurred, and we cannot save your changes. Please refresh the page" appears, as well as a modal dialog telling us that there's been a Google Docs error, and giving us a button to reload the page.

We don't have STR yet - this seems to happen more or less randomly, and it's pretty frustrating when you're trying to get stuff done in docs.

I should note that I wasn't able to hit this problem in FF 16 or 17 beta.

I was able to hit the error with my Web Console open, and here's what I saw:

[14:23:19.159] GET https://csi.gstatic.com/csi?v=3&s=kix&action=edit&it=cursorMove.7,scrolling.0,typeChar.9,basicEdit.16,carriageReturn.16,backspace.14&e=docs_warm,docs_offline_warm,docs_offline_maybe_optout&rls=null&rt= [HTTP/1.1 204 No Content 137ms]

[14:23:19.264] CustomError: Error in protected function: Could not find a safe spacer for the selection!

And then the following trace gets sent off to Google:

cc Joanne, who has been helping with some other Google conversations. Joanne, do you have a contact at Google who may be able to help with this docs issue?
Hi Mike,
