This "snippets" problem started a few days ago. I use the
same 2 snippets in about 100 topics. Suddenly, the snippets stopped
getting displayed in the topics (Design View). I don't see the
snippets even when I click the eye glasses icon for a preview.
However, if I switch to HTML View, the code does confirm that
the snippets are there.
This problem started happening around a few days after I
started having version control issues with RH. My project is
version controlled (Sourcesafe) so I have always checked in/out
topics for working. But nowadays, after a few hours of RH being
open, it just messes the version control part. That is, it will not
let me edit topics that I have checked out myself telling me that
the file is already checked out. And at times, it won't even check
in my files.
I thought maybe my RH install is corrupt so I just
reinstalled RH (7.0.2). However, I still cannot see the snippets.
Not sure about the version control part since I haven't kept RH
open for a long time.
The issue that I am having is that when I renamed the
snippet, only two topics accepted kept the snippet and allowed it
to remain (with the new name). The other 100 topics showed that I
had a snippet (even though you couldn't see it), but in the
tooltip, showed the previous name I named the snippet. I went back
to the snippet and renamed it back to the old name - which oddly
this time, the two topics that were accepting the snippet as any
name, did not take and the snippet was there, but would not appear.
I guess this is a little glitch in the renaming snippet
function. I can't think of anything else??? Anyway, I kept the
original name (although, another odd thing is this isn't the
original - this is another one I changed it to) and removed the
snippet that wasn't appearing from the two topics and reinserted it
again. I guess it's better than reinserting it 100 times.
