I am updating a RoboHelp HTML project that I worked on last
summer. I copied all original project files into a new folder and
turned their Read-Only property off. I then discovered that after
applying a new style sheet to the topics, the TOC topics were all
pointing to the older files in the original project folder. - I had
to re-add the TOC topics to correct the links.
Now I'm finding that my See Also and Index topics are
pointing to the older files in the original project folder. Some of
the See Also topics are duplicated (I assume because one keyword is
coming from the old help topic files and another instance is coming
from the updated help topic files).
Is there any way to "efficiently" clean it up and resolve
these links? I made a backup of the rhakeyword.apj and and
rhkkeyword.apj files, then deleted them to see if that cleaned up
the links. There was no improvement.
Update: I discovered in Windows Explorer that an old help
folder still existed in my new project folder. (This folder wasn't
"viewable" in RoboHelp Explorer.) The folder contained duplicate
topics that had since been reorganized elsewhere in the project
into other folders. I deleted the folder from Windows Explorer,
then ran a Broken Links report and found 201 topics that had
keywords that weren't linking to a real topic. These topics weren't
lost, they were just reorganized elsewhere in the new version of
Anyway, it seems that if I use this Broken Links report as a
reference, I can manually re-add the Index keywords for the topics
that were moved to a new location.
In another problem, I'm having problems with two of my
hyperlinks that are within a table cell. Other hyperlinks within
the same table work. I've tried deleting the table rows and
re-adding them. What causes a jump not to work? What should I look
for in the TrueCode view?
