These bookmarks are being created because of something in your FM file. They could be bookmarks or some other element. Deleting them won't delete any content apart from the TOC entry so you are OK there. You can prevent having these by either removing the element from the FM file or manually creating the TOC. If the former, I can't say for sure what causes them without knowing more about your FM file.
Read the RoboColum(n).
Thanks. Is it possible that they are index markers? I have those all over in my FM files to generate my index. If so-- can I set the RH style settings to somehow pass over those or something?
You should be able to control them when you link the FM file to RH -
there's an "Edit FrameMaker settings" button that pulls in all the FM
paragraph, character tags, markers, etc. for you to bring over or not.
Well, I can't seem to find any settings that will allow me to control the markers from the FM doc, but if I just manually edit it, I can get rid of the odd references and control all the other settings under "STYLE SETTINGS".
I'm seeing the same thing in my projects. The bookmarks are created from xrefs, such as between numbered steps, or if there are any vestiges of xrefs not pointing to anything. If you delete the bookmarks in RH, you get a message that the topic was edited outside of robohelp and you are prompted to confirm discarding the changes. I am unable to delete the xref topic in the topics pane. If I drag the topic over to the TOC manually, it does not bring along the oddly named topic.
