There's been a problem updating your Instructable parsererror : Unexpected token

Working on a draft, was editing tags in images when suddenly...

I can no longer access this step at all, not even to delete it.

We just released a new version of our editor that should fix all these errors. Try editing your project again!

I'd love to test this out, but a staff member deleted it back a bit after our discussion. I see the offending image in the comments below, but cannot find it in my image library.

Can you please send me a link to your unpublished project so I can take a look?
Thank you for the fix, I could finally edit one of my instructables, that displayed this error for about half a year.

I see you're an editor here! Any chance you can get help that apostrophe edited out?

For clarification - it is the image linked below that has the specific issue.

I actually published it while trying to troubleshoot the issue:

I'm including the offensive image. The Instructable editor now says "parsererror
SyntaxError: JSON.parse: bad control character in string literal
" I'm curious if that naughty char is the apostrophe in "wouldn't" in one of the tags. A bit disappointing that I can't edit the instructable at all now.
Well you wouldn't be able to delete the image as long as its attached somewhere. Did you try and edit the tag? From your YOU page, go to Image Library (below your user image) and from the page that loads, click on the "your library" tab. Find the image and click on the orange text below it so that it opens up (showing you the image and the different sizes, etc). On the left, near the bottom of the column is the "Keywords". Click on the icon to delete the keywords and then add keywords WITHOUT any additional characters. Then try and open your draft.

Let me know what happens.

Well I had gone to the same "image library" previously, but somehow failed to get to the view of the image that I'm at now. Unfortunately there are no keywords. It is in the "image notes"
