Are you experiencing any issues with other RH6 specific features?
For example, can you apply conditional tags to the TOC?
You must work your project on your local machine, and RH must have been installed on that machine by you with administrative rights.
Yes, I am able to apply conditional build tags to the TOC. And yes, RH6 was installed by me on my machine.
If I use the Insert menu, the 'Fields and Variables' window appears. I can add and delete dates and times, but it won't allow me to add a new variable.
OK US, let try and get this sorted.
So when you open up RH6. You click on Insert - User Defined Variable. Then you highlight the Variable option in the Value section of the dialog? Then you click on the New button?
Are you saying that absolutely nothing happens when you do this. What should happen in the New Variable dialog should appear?
If it does not, my guess is that it is an install issue and you need to reinstall RH from scratch with FULL Admin Rights. Otherwise, please contact support directly who should be able to run through this with you. It is not an error I've seen before or seen reported.
Uninstalled, and then reinstalled. Same problem. How does one install with full admin rights? Not sure what that means since there didn't seem to be an option for such a thing during the install process. I'm the admin of my workstation (and was logged in as such). Guess I'll have to call. Thanks for your ideas.
I have just had the same problem with not being able to create a user defined variable.
After some poking around, I discovered that the rhvariable.apj file wasn't created. (I wonder if it is some funky interaction with RH and VSS source controlled projects - I've encountered a few of those beasts...)
So I created a blank text tile called rhvariable.apj. added it to sourcesafe, checked it out and voila! I can now create and modify variables in my project.
I'd sent a bug report to Adobe before I found this out, so we'll see what they say. (I have four or five projects I can practice on later. )
Out of curiosity, if you create a couple of new projects, are they also missing this file?
I created a new project and the rhvariable.apj file is correctly created. When i get a chance, I'll get a copy of one of my projects, remove the source control references and see if it is a problem with upgrading a project or a weird source control thing - I've had a couple of those,
I haven't heard anything from Adobe about the bug report, but I'm not sure if they routinely reply to submitters. It's also possible something went wrong with the submission. I've had a few flaky things happen with my computer and internet recently.
You won't get a reponse to a bug report. I've not known cases of that file not being reported so given your comment about your computer, I would be more inclined to think it is something there and this is, hopefully, a one off thing.
