    Merged TOCs changing from topics to books

      There are a couple of forum problems similar to this, but there isn't an ANSWER to this issue.....
      I am using RH5 to create multiple projects which are joined to the main project's TOC. I've been using the same master TOC for years. It is gratuitously changing my merged TOC for no reason - no changes to master toc.hhc file....

      The master toc looks like this

      Product
      ------ topic
      ------ Book
      ------------ topic
      ------------ Mergetopic1
      ------ MergeTOC1
      ------ MergeTOC2


      Merge TOC1 looks like this (TOC2 looks the same)

      TOC1Book
      ------ Topic
      ------ Topic
      ------ Book
      ------------ topic

      so I expect to see

      Product
      ------topic
      ------Book
      ------------topic
      ------------Mergetopic1
      ------TOC1Book
      ------------ Topic
      ------------ Topic
      ------------ Book
      ------------ topic
      ------TOC2Book
      ------topic

      Instead I get

      Product
      ------topic
      ------topic
      ------Book
      ------------Topic
      ------------ Mergetopic1
      ------TOC1Book
      ------------ Book
      ------------------ Topic
      ------------------ Book
      ------------------------ topic
      ----------- TOC2BOOK

      The first topic of toc1 is converted to a book during the merge process - which throws off all of the subsequent structure. I have recompiled the merged tocs. I have create new test projects, I have uninstalled RH5 and reinstalled. The results are the same, no matter what I do...
