I am using RoboHelp HTML X5.0.2. I have a project that I at
some point converted from WinHelp and have been working with for
Yesterday I should work with the See Also-keywords in the
project, but discovered that the keyword list was empty. When I
open the topic properties, I can see the See Also keyword(s)
connected to that topic. I can also see the list of keywords when I
open the properties of the See Also design-time control.
I tried adding a new keyword to a topic, and that keyword
showed up in the list. There was created a new file called
rhakeyword.apj which contains the keyword I added.
I renamed and opened the project file in Access, and could
see the list of keywords there. The one keyword I had added was
listed with a positive ID (1) while the other keywords had negative
IDs (-1 etc).
I tried searching the forum archives and the HATT archives,
but I couldn't find anything similar or relevant. Anyone has any
idea what has happened here, or what I can do to get my keywords
I was able to solve the problem by manually editing the
rhakeyword.apj file. I hadn't so many See Also-keyword, so it was
possible to add them there. All links to the keywords were restored
when I added the keywords to this file.
Before that I tried rebuilding the CPD-file, but that didn't
add the keywords to the See Also tab. If I tried to add the
keywords manually in the RoboHelp UI, I got an error messag that
the keyword already existed.
The rhakeyword.apj only had 3 keywords. I deleted the file
and restart the editor, the file was recreated, but only with the
same 3 keywords.
I then opened the .cpd file with Access and also found the
negative ID's. I changed all of them to a positive ID in the 2
Akeyword... tables. Then restarted the editor again and my see also
keywords were back, even in the rhakeyword.apj file.
