Footer in document results in "Part URI must start with a forward slash" exception.

Dec 8, 2010 at 8:42 AM

I use DocX to substitute text in a template based on user input.

When I create a Footer for my template document (using MS Word 2010) DocX throws this exception when saving the document:

"Part URI must start with a forward slash"

It does not seem to matter what content the Footer has. Anything will result in this exception.

I don't see any other reports of this. Could this be a problem specific to templates created in MS Wordt 2010?

are you using the latest source code? If not please download the latest source code and build your own dll.
If this is still an issue, I will install Office 2010 and debug this issue.

Can you provide me with a minimal document and code example that throws this exception?
