I don't have a workaround, but I am experiencing the same problem. My text-only file is named the same as my H file so it will autoupdate, but I think it is the same thing. The error message is:
This file may be an invalid Text-Only Topic file. Any data contained in this file may be lost. Would you like to continue.
Can anyone help?
I just tried adding topic ID's and topic text into the Text-only TXT file from a text editor outside of RoboHelp. I saved the changes and then recompiled and it worked. RoboHelp's text-only editor did not show the topic text, but this may be a workaround to use until this bug is fixed.
I started this thread and have since developed a workaround (similar to jc@salient) which I have detailed in a two-page Word document. The document also explains several RoboHelp defects related to this problem (hint to any Adobe people who monitor this forum).
This interface doesn't seem to allow attachments; so, if anyone needs a copy, email me at email@example.com and ask for it. Please put Robohelp on the subject line.
If anyone adds refinements later, please share.
Thanks for posting that you have prepared an aid for this.
Hint for anyone using this forum. Adobe don't monitor it! See below. :-)
