Welcome to the forum.
I have seen the split line phenomenon before, and, yes, it confuses the js code that uses it.
The original whlang.js file is in
C:\Program Files\Adobe RoboHelp 7\RoboHTML\Help\en_US
or, if you're doing FlashHelp,
C:\Program Files\Adobe RoboHelp 7\FlashHelp SDK\Help
Check in those files first. My guess is that you won't find anything wrong.
This is the default "Stop" and "Ignore" lists, in project .stp and .ign files that get updated when you add words or phrases under Project Settings > Advanced.
If the templates are good, rename or remove the projectname.stp file in the project directory. RH should re-create a default version. Even though your examples are from the stop list, maybe the projectname.ign file is involved.
This fix worked perfectly. Hooray!
Do you happen to know *why* this happens? If it's something I'm doing, like storing the project and output files on a separate drive than the one on which RH is installed, I will gladly change my behaviors to keep RH happy.
In any case you've been a great help. Thank you.
If your project is on a local drive, or an external hard disk, that is OK. If it is on a network drive, then unless you are using source control, move the project locally.
I agree with Peter.
However, I did see the split line problem once or twice, and I never stored projects on a network drive, and always generate to the local hard drive. I'd think generating across the network would be as safe for WebHelp as publishing. On the other hand, we've heard about problems trying to generate print doc across a network.
Can't recall the file names with split lines, but I think it was one of the search database files beginning with whft......
I did move some projects from one PC to another via the network, but can't say whether this caused the change. From time to time I read advice saying it's best to zip up the entire project directory before sending it across the network, and unzip it at the destination. Maybe this has something to do with the split lines, but I don't know enough to explain why it might be so.
