Often when I'm in a topic and double-click on a template to
open it and get some standard text, I get a dialog box called
"Headers and Footers" which scolds me about "This topic was created
from a template and the header and footer has been modified." There
are two options: "Apply this modification to al topics created from
the template" and "Apply this modification to this topic only.
Note: Choosing this option will remove the link to the template."
Weird this is, neither my topics nor my template have a header or
footer. Did long ago, but I deleted it. Is this a common buggy
error, or perhaps something residual from a header/footer of long
ago? Thx, Eric
Normally, we use Templates to create Headers and Footers and
apply them to a group or all topics. Naturally, if RoboHelp HTML
thinks you have modified a Header or a Footer inside of a topic
attached to a template, it is giving you the option of updating all
topics with the template attached or disassociating from the
existing template and basically "orphaning" the topic from any
I'm not sure I'd classify it as a bug. More along the lines
of "working as designed" or "expected behavior".
I think the bug is more how it determines when you've
modified the header or footer. I sometimes get the message after
just editing the content like normal - not double-clicking anywhere
weird, or modifying truecode or anything.
Each time it happens I try to recall any common steps I might
have taken, but haven't been able to reproduce on command yet.
