Greetings all. We're currently exploring using source control
for our documentation. Since we already have a Source Safe
implemented, we're trying that first. I'm testing out our normal
workflows using a dummy file, and most things work well. However, I
can't get files to move between directories. For example, If I have
File_A in Folder_1 and try to move it to Folder_2, it won't move.
RoboHelp prompts me to check out the necessary files, checks them
out, but will not move the files.
I've tried checking out the entire project, but from RoboHelp
and in Source Safe. I've tried manual check out of the files
involved. Nothing seems to work. Are there certain rights I need in
SourceSafe to move files between directories like this? Does this
Source Safe version just not support this action?
We don't integrate VSS and RH in the same way you do. We
checkout files from VSS, make the necessary changes in RH and then
checkin in VSS. If files have been moved/deleted/renamed in RH this
can be handled by the View Differences feature in VSS.
