Similar to the Windows Registry, embedded codes should be treated with utmost respect and caution.

The DVX manual/online help contains a detailed section on embedded codes, and procedures for eliminating 'rogue codes' prior to importing Word files are described at and in the section on how to prepare Word files before import of this guide.

The basic rule is never delete embedded codes from source segments, because this can cause severe file corruption and associated frustration.

Nevertheless, advanced users may be interested to know that certain 'non-critical' codes can in fact be deleted safely from source segments, and it may be convenient to do so in certain situations. Further details can be found at [1]
