I did a minor edit on a small topic in an existing project.
Robohelp crashed before I could save. I ended the task and reloaded
the project into HR, and received this msg:
The reference to the file, "C:\help projects\UW\IDI UW\Chap
15\file:\C:\help projects\UW man.css" from the file ""C:\help
projects\UW\IDI UW\Chap 15\syndrome.htm" contains illegal
characters and will not be shown in the project manager.
RH crashed again. I loaded the referenced file in Internet
Explorer, found the funky path displayed on the error msg, modied
it, and saved the file. When I tried to open the project in RH and
open the topic, I didn't receive the error message again, but RH
did crash. Ended the task w/Windows Task Manager, loaded RH and
opened the project. I then deleted the offending topic and
reimported it from an MS Word file. No error msg., but RH crashed
I was able to edit another topic, save, and regenerate.
However, now RH crashes no matter which topic I try to edit. The
last time I worked on this project was 11/07, and everything went
It's late Sunday evening. I'm stumped. Great issue for a
Monday morning. Any ideas?
I decided to try the oldest trick in the book and reboot the
computer. That resolved the problem! Duh!
However, I need to edit the index on the project, and RH
crashes when I try to open the index designer. I haven't tried to
reboot. I am opening another topic on this one. I found many issues
with RH crashes, and maybe that will help someone else, when we
have a resolution.
