I'm using Robohelp X-5 for Word and compiling an HTML output.
I've twice had a problem with projects where you compile and get a
compile complete wessage without generating the .chm file.
After a bit of detective work I've isolated the problem with
the second project as being a single jpeg image. Remove it and the
project compiles OK; add it in and the compile fails.
There is nothing obviously wrong with the jpeg image,
(produced with Corel Photo-Paint 7). It opens OK in Corel, and in a
couple of other bits of software, (MS Paint for example).
I'm going to answer my own message by saying I think I've
found the reason.
It's the total number of images - once they exceed 108 the
compile fails. (Or it's the total size). Reduce the number of
images to 108 or below and the compiling is fine, even on a file
that's failed with a larger number of images.
Does anyone know the limits you can have on the number of
topics, images, etc., you can have in a project?
RH for Word is designed to work with BMP images and you get
the option to display the image or a line of code. If you choose to
display the BMP images, very often the compile will fail in exactly
the way you describe. Change the view to code and the same project
You have chosen to use jpgs in the source so you have to
insert using Word's insert functionality which lets you insert jpg
images. However you do not get the option to switch to a code view
and hit the buffers when you compile. If you used RH's insert
functionality, you would have to import BMPs and work with them.
When you generate, you would choose conversion to jpg or gif. But
with BMPs in the source, you can switch to code while you compile
and not have this issue.
No idea whether the limit is file size or number of files, I
suspect file size.
