I have a problem with the .hhp file of my Help project.
In the .hhp file the default topic, default window settings
and the windows section is overwritten without any changes done
actively in RoboHelp or in the file itself.
The changes are bad because the .hhp file is used by
Microsoft Help to build our help files. I cannot work out why the
.hhp file is reset.
The text below is part of the .hhp file. 1st example is from
the smsdk_good_file.hhp and this is what the .hhp file should be.
The 2nd example shows the changed text in red.
Title=SpeechMagic SDK Online Help

Hi Nyul. I've never known RH to change the .HHP file settings
unless someone has done something inside the project. You say that
you use MS Help to build your CHMs. Could this be changing the .HHP
file? I assume there is a good reason why you aren't using RH to
I have had trouble with RoboHelp changing the .hhp file, too.
I think it does this when the RoboHelp project file doesn't get
updated for some reason. You may be able to fix this by moving (or
deleting - but you might want a backup) the project file and
opening your project from the good .hhp file. RoboHelp will then
recreate the project file.
