Is the topic name the same as the filename? That can be tricky. The easiest solutions are the filename and topic name are exactly the same case or there is some slight variation, such as an extra character in the filename. The issue occurs when the filename and topic name are exactly the same except for the case.
There is a way of getting it right but I would need to refresh my memory on that. Post back if the above are not OK for you.
If we're talking about the topic title, any change should take on the first try. However, be aware that this will not affect the headline at the top of the text, except when you first create the topic and haven't saved it. So you need to change the title (it appears in properties and in source code between the <title> and </title> tags) and the headline separately.
If we're talking about file names, here's the trick:
Change the file name to anything else, with at least one character added or taken away. Save the topic, or save all.
Change the file name again, using upper and lower case as needed.
This is a holdover from the days when upper/lower didn't matter. RH doesn't recognize a change, but will follow case on a revised file name after it is saved.
RH is not the only application that wasn't sent back to school on this.
Thanks for replying.
Yes the topic title and filename are the same — e.g. currently:
I'll try that.
Seems such a trivial thing, but is quite important.
Thanks a lot!
Try setThisCommand for the topic title and say set_This_Command for the file name or anything else except setThisCommand.
Hasn't this case-renaming subject come up before? I'm pretty sure that the workaround was to first rename the topic to something entirely different, like whatcommandisthis, then again rename it but this time to exactly setThisCommand.
I know it's not nice to fool mother RH, but I don't think she'll mind this time (her handlers forgot to program her into realizing that if her user wanted the same characters but in a different case, THEY DARN WELL HAD A GOOD REASON!)
Ooops, sorry Harvey; I just ran right by your identical response, didn't I?
Oh well, a little reinforcement can't hurt!
Not just reinforcement, but the validation is welcome.
Thanks for all your help and suggestions on this.
I can confirm that in order to rename it with characters of a different case, you need to first change the topic title to something with either more or fewer characters first and apply the change.
Then rename the topic title again to the correct case and apply that change.
then changed to
Otherwise it reverts enfuriatingly to the original case.
As ever, problem resolved by posting here!
