Hi Zbigniew,

I think I finally figured out what you are doing wrong. Both frames you want 
to link contain text, don't they? In this case, you can't link them. Linking 
means letting text flow from one frame to another. So if you want to export 
all text from your document, and this text resides in different frames, You 
have to export the content of each frame separately. The exception are linked 
frames, but this is continuously flowing text.

I have to admit that the error message is quite confusing, though.
