Good morning Robohelp HTML community.
Today's subject is the renaming of styles in the Robohelp (v9) HTML CSS.
After developing a magnificent work of Robohelp art I am now looking to clean up my styles. Some styles have funky names that are are used in many hundreds of topics. I want to change some of these funky style names, however, find that Robohelp does not automatically update each paragraph in each topic. Changing the style name has the effect of applying a default style to the paragraphs since they can longer find the style in the CSS.
Can anyone suggest a workable method to change the style name in the CSS and retroactively apply that style to each applicable topic paragraph.
You need to use a multifile find and replace tool. For this purpose the one built into RoboHelp will suffice.
Your Find should be class="oldname"
Your Replace should be class= "newname"
Make sure you take a backup of the project first.

I actually worked this out since it appeared to be the only option available. I had hoped Robohelp was clever enough to do it automatically.
