I have a hunch here that renaming the project looses association with the project's alias file. Renaming the project changes the name of the project's .ALI file which is referenced in the project's .HHP file. If you open this file in notepad, you will find an [ALIAS] section. Does this still refer to the old project's .ali file?1 person found this helpful
Having looked into this a bit more I think I was only partially on the right track. Having copied and renamed a project, there was no .HHP file present so there is no connection with the renamed .ALI file. If you compile the project after your rename, the .HHP is created complete with the connection to the renamed .ALI file.1 person found this helpful
My colleague's reply:
"I discovered that it requires just one more step in the help project before I can actually see the file name associations/aliases again. I have to recompile, as Colum recommended, but then I have to close down RoboHelp and reopen the project. Then, if I am in Project View and navigate to Context-Sensitive Help/Map Files/All Map IDs, I can see all of the file name associations again. Thank you, Colum, for your help!"
