We are a team of four who use Robohelp 7 and Robosource
control 3, with the roboshelp source on a server.
Sometimes Robohelp seems to get confused about which file
corresponds to a topic: usually because the file doesn't exist.
This can happen sometimes if I change the name of file even if I do
so in the topic properties, using the topic properties dialog box.
In such a case, we are left with a 'zombie' topic, which we
can't use but can't get rid of. I want to know a sure way to remove
all knowledge of a zombie topic from Robohelp.
For example, is it enough (or sensible) to do the following?
- delete all links in other topics to that zombie topic
- delete the reference in the .fpj file to the zombie topic
This seems to be an intermittent issue but very time
consuming when it happens!
First of all let me say that I use a different version
control application. However this does seem to be a synching issue
between your RH project and the RoboSource database. If after you
check in your project, can you check for any differences between
the source and the source control database. This may shed some
light. I certianly wouldn't delete anything just yet.
