By chance are you changing verbiage inside Heading 1 or 2 or whatever you are paginating on? If so, this will change the Topic Filenames and cause issues if you have already constructed a TOC and made other changes.
Thanks for the response.
One document I did try to rename a topic. I deleted it out of the topic list and out of the TOC and told it not to regenerate.
The other document, however, I did not change any of the Headings, I am only trying to add a new Heading.
Is there a way to unlink the topics from the original Word document and maintain the changes to the topics?
I suppose if I were to try and do this I would take the following approach.
Make the changes to the topics.
Right-click the topic and choose to Explore. This should open Windows Explorer at the topic location.
Copy or move the topic from the folder where it is in Windows Explorer to another folder in the project.
From inside RoboHelp, right-click and import the topic into the project as if you had created it from scratch.
I'm thinking that would accomplish it.
