    Importing Word doc into Previously Existing Project Corrupts Related Topics


      I had a few extra topics that I documented in a Word document and imported that document into an existing HTML Help project in RoboHelp. After doing this, it used the CSS file called by the new folder it added for those new topics (based on the name of the imported word doc) and when I look at topics in WYSIWIG, the text on them is Design_Time Con. (I used the text only style of related topics). When I select the related topic button in WYSIWIG and view the popup, the menu choice for properties is deactivated so I can't even edit the topics in them. And, when I try to add a new related topic, it looks the same "corrupted" way.

      What am I going to do? Is there are project setting that is pointing to the wrong directory? What can I do to save my related topics. I have over 400 topics all with related topics buttons and each has an average of 6-8 related topics listed.

          P.S. I also tried creating a new project and importing the htm files into it but it is doing the same thing.

          Here is the code for the Related Topics in one of the topics as a sample:
