2.1.0b5 - TypeError: Cannot set property 'id' of undefined

created an issue

I have placed a static non-twine html file "startingpage.html" in the Documents/Twine/Stories folder. It has nothing to do with Twine, and in Twine 2.0 it's been absolutely fine.

But when I launch the new Twine 2.1.0b5 beta, I immediately get:

TypeError: Cannot set property 'id' of undefined at IMPORT_STORY (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:41:19603) at i.(anonymous function) (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:91:5845) at r.value (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:91:4841) at dispatch (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:91:4102) at importStory (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:9:25334) at chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:48:10972 at chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:48:10861 at Object.loadAll (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:48:11018) at chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:60:31781 at Object.init (chrome-extension://jbeclgngiacjdjjokiegbkjcpibcdcic/twine.js:61:11)

At a guess, I moved the static html file out of the way, and that resolved the problem.

    Are you comfortable uploading this file?

    If not, could you do a quick text search to see if it contains <tw-storydata> or <tw-passage> anywhere in it? The reason I ask is I tried saving the Google home page's HTML into the Stories folder as an experiment, and I don't get an error message, so I am wondering if there's something specific about this file that's throwing off Twine.

    This happened to me as well while working on a Twine file. I still don't know why the specific file does not work like the other twine files, after sending it to a different document location which led to the others working fine in both the recent beta and the original twine program, but I assume it was a large file that got corrupted.
