You may have already checked this, but if you have deleted/readded your window definitions did you reactivate the Browse Sequence option on them? They aren't selected by default. If this doesn't work, try creating a new single source layout (don't copy the existing one).
In addition to what Colum said, for the Browse Sequences, I might ask if you installed the RoboHelp 8 trial and uninstalled. I recently attempted to install the trial version of RoboHelp 8 and it didn't work for me. So I uninstalled it. When I did, I believe part of the process may have unregistered the HHActiveX.DLL. So Browse Sequences failed to appear for me. After re-registering the HHActiveX.DLL on my PC I was once again able to see Browse Sequences in CHM files.
Colum, thank you for your reply. The Browse Sequence check box is selected in all cases. And I did delete and recreate the three layouts that I need. Everything in the RH interface windows is filled out properly.
I have managed to resolve the problem described in my "Symptom 2" paragraph. I found code in the xml project files where the Window was defined incorrectly. In the RH interface windows, everything was defined correctly, but for some reason the xml project files were not getting updated. When I manually edited the xml project files, replacing the incorrect Window definitions with the correct one (as it is in the RH interface), everything came right, and the annoying errors disappeared.
I stilll do not understand what broke this RH project, and I am still looking for something in the xml project files that controls the display of browsing sequences.
Rick, thanks for your reply. I have not tried to install RH 8. The HHActiveX.dll is not unregistered—after all, I see browse sequences in all other CHM files. No, the problem is somewhere in the project files, I'm pretty sure. I just don't know where.
A week or so ago I also noticed the three strange files in the top level folder of the project: ~$<projectname>.BRS, ~$<projectname>.hhc, and ~$<projectname>.hhk. A quick glance sugegsts that they are copies of the `real' Browse, ToC and Index.
I moved them out of the way but have not noticed anything else strange with the project.
Has anyone else any news about these files?
I accidentally stumbled upon a solution! I renamed the CPD file, regenerated the CHM files, and the browse sequences reappeared!
