I have a user who is trying to use the Printed Document
function of RoboHelp to convert html files into one continuous
document, put together in a book form, complete with a table of
contents. The process errors out giving her error messages like
--> "Warning: The Word Document became corrupt when attempting
to append a malformed topic: (then it lists an htm file here)". Can
anyone tell me what could be causing this error or if something
might be missing from the installation?
See Printed Documentation Issues on my site for one
The other is quite simply insufficient RAM. Yeah I know what
RH says on the box but Word has its own requirements. I have a
layout that gives this error on a 2gb ram machine but works quite
happily on 3gb.
A way of checking that it is RAM is to create two copies of
the print layout. Leave one alone. In number two trash half the
topics. In three trash the other half. If two and three then
generate OK, there is clearly no problem topic so by my
calculations it has to be RAM.
