This is due to a non-supported character, usually something not found on a standard US keyboard or an artifact from copy/pasting from another Word editor. This includes (but is not limited to) quotations/apostrophies from a Word editor and/or special symbols/fractions. Please make sure you type into our editor, and if you do copy and paste ensure you are pasting from a plain-text source (like notepad).

Can you please provide me a link to the project where you are getting this error message

I got the same error last night - I was attempting to upload some .hex files and a BOM.xlsx. I had not seen it before.
