    When adding content controls to the page it works fine. It also displays fine. I some times find that after a while the controls say 'A Component with this name already exists'.

    It is displays fine but does not let me edit.

    I can give you reproduction details if need be.

    Hi Paul,

    This is a known issue and it has to do with the naming service. It will be fixed in the Christmas release.
    A temporary workaround is to give unique IDs to the controls.Please see the attachment for details.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Kind regards,
    Rebecca
