Wrong topics listed in "Used in Topics" for snippets and snippets report

Dec 19, 2012 7:41 AM

Using RoboHelp 10, I have 60 snippets in a project. For some of these snippets, when I look at the list of topics using that snippet (either by right-clicking the snippet in the Snippets pod and selecting Properties > Used In; right-clicking in the snippet edit window and selecting Topic Properties > Used In; or in the Snippets report), some of those topics do not actually use the snippet. Of course I verify this by searching in the HTML code of the misreferenced topics to be thorough. This even happens when in fact no topics are referencing it, and the snippet name is bold in the pod indicating so!


I closed and re-opened the project, thinking there was some kind of synching issue, but that didn't fix it. Has anyone else seen this?

    Hi. I think you'll find that a bold snippet shows that the snippet itself is blank not that it isn't being used. Anyway the properties shouldn't show it is being used if it isn't. You say only some snippets are affected. Is there some similarity between them.


    Maybe you could delete your project's CPD file and see it that solves the problem.
