    Can you expand on that a bit? What are you right clicking on?

     

    Are we talking about a CHM, webhelp, flashhelp, AIRHelp or what?

     

    When you reply, you will see a camera icon, a screenshot would help.

     

    FInally, are you using RoboHelp HTML or RoboHelp for Word?

     

    Sorry but the crystal ball just ain't working this morning.

    I have to ask if you are new to RoboHelp?

     

    Skins and Master Pages are different things.

     

    The skin affects the whole appearance of the help. It does not affect the appearance of the topics.

     

    The Master Page affects topics based on it. New topics will have the header, footer and body of the master page. Old topics where you attach the master page will only have the header and footer.

     

    I'm still not clear on what the first image is showing me. Is that a topic?

    OK. The skin is nothing to do with the problem.

     

    If you create topics without a Master Page, do they display correctly?

     

    You still haven't told us what you are right clicking that results in this problem.

    The left menu is known as the TOC. (Table of Contents)

     

    What if you just click the pages in the TOC. How do they display then.

     

    Showing the whole screen would help more.

    Last screenshot. The whole screen when you click on the link in the TOC, in other words what it should look like.

     

    Also open one of the sample projects. Click Open on the RoboHelp Starter page and then click Samples in the ribbon on the left. That should work OK and establish the problem is your project.

     

    If it is, create a new project with just a couple of topics and no master page. Test that.

     

    The above should start narrowing down the problem.

    Hi there

     

    And from the sidelines here, I'm a bit concerned about seeing multiple instances of the Show link. This seems to suggest that your source files may have been repeatedly overwritten with the output files. In the first image I saw the Show link three times.

     

    When you edit your topics, do you see little red squares all over the place? If so, you have likely shot yourself in the foot.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    When you generate the help, you select a skin. The skin has a toolbar area, a navigation area (TOC etc) and an area for topics. It does not affect the topic in any way.

     

    Topic appearance is a combination of the CSS applied and any associated master page. If you open a topic in a new tab you are only going to see the topic, not the skin.
