What usually happens is the folder with the images is not showing in Project Manager. I suspect that if instead of relinking an image, you manually recreated that folder, the images would reappear then.
Not sure about cause.
1] Does your project name have any spaces in it. Can cause various issues.
2] You could try trashing the CPD file. See Opening Projects on my site.
The project filename does not have any spaces in it.
I'll take a look at the CPD stuff.
As for manually ceating a folder, the folder had not dissapeared rather one of several images within a folder.....
Update on the situation..
By happy coincidence my RH crashed this afternoon whilst I had help "project x" open!
This meant I could test a few things out. when Project x was compiled into web help, surprise suprise, missing graphics again.
I then closed RH down and made safe copy of the CPD file for project x. I removed the CPD file from the project x directory. Following this I opened project x in RH again. I then compiled and all graphics had returned.
In other words the cause of the problem was shown pretty conclusively to be the CPD file being corrupted by an event whilst that praticular project was opened. As an additional test, I opened and compiled some other web help projects that were not open at the time of the crash and these came out fine with no missing graphics.
Anyway thanks very much again for the advice.
For anyone else reading this I feel that using merged projects on a large help system might be a good way to limit damage to a large help system. That way one is only working on one segment at a time and if an event occurs the damage is limited to what was open at that time.
