If I delete a topic in the Project Manager in RH10 then I get the option to not delete links to the deleted topic (useful as I then want to search on broken links). The downside is I can only delete one topic at a time. However, I can delete multiple topics using the Topic List but it deletes the link to the topic as well.
Does anyone know how I can delete multiple topics in RH10 and keep the broken links to the deleted topic?
By submitting a feature request! It has been that way for many versions.

Until Adobe changes behavior, this is likely the best way:
Right-click a topic in the Project Manager pod and choose Explore. This should open Windows Explorer at the project location.
Locate and delete the topics using Windows Explorer.
Return to RoboHelp and you have accomplished part of your goal.
The topics will still be listed in the Project, but will show a red x indication that they cannot be found. And I"m guessing that because you want to delete the topics but not remove the references, this will actually be fine as you are likely going to replace the topics at a later point, no?
Hope this helps... Rick
