Three things come to mind. Have you set up Dreamweaver as your default editor (Under Tools | Options| HTML Editor. Does this problem occur only when you import the topic to the template gallery? What happens when you import the topic as an HTML File (using the File | Import | HTML File option)? I'm wondering why you need this file as a template - Robohelp templates do not work in the same way as Dreamweaver templates, they are normally just used to to add basic header and footer info - no where near as sophicated as Dreamweaver. Lastly, are you working with the project locally (good), rather than on the network (bad).
I'm using the RoboHelp WYSIWYG editor as default and I'm working with the project locally. The reason for using Dreamweaver is:
1) its designer - better than RoboHelp's
2) good support for CSS
I tried two methods for including the template in my project.
1) By importing it as a topic and then adding it to the gallery through the Right Click | Add to Template command.
2) By importing it directly as a template in the Templates area after renaming the .html file to .htt
The problem occurs when I create a new topic based on the template.
" I'm wondering why you need this file as a template - Robohelp templates do not work in the same way as Dreamweaver templates, they are normally just used to to add basic header and footer info - no where near as sophicated as Dreamweaver. "
What I wanted to do was design a layout and a set of text formattings that I can use for some of my topics (in a similar fashion as we do in Dreamweaver). But, as you have said, if RoboHelp templates are only for adding basic headers and footers then I guess that is the reason behind the crashing of the program.
