Hello, I am looking for help in copying over Conditional
Some background: I have a large project of about 1400 topics.
We keep the archives on the network, but I copy the project over to
my desktop for publish and then copy back out to the network. Due
to RoboHelp hanging up and not responding while trying to publish
to a WebHelp SSL, I have concluded that my project is now corrupt.
I even deleted the XPJ file and created a new one by opening the
HHP file. Alas, my WebHelp is hosed.
So, we are restoring the project by using an older version.
The problem is that the older version does not reflect the 2 days
of work I spent on assigning each and every topic its own
Conditional Build Tag. I would really rather not have to repeat
So my question is this: Is there a way to apply the Build
Tags in the current version to the older version? I assume there is
a definition file in there, but I'm not sure where it is.
Your suggestion to not give up on the project is sound. I
think I have narrowed down the source of my problem. The project
isn't corrupt; it may just be bloated with Conditional Tags.
I tried the following experiments:
Publish All SSL (no conditional builds) to Desktop: Success
Publish Parital SSL (apply about half) to Desktop: Hang up
Publish Partial SSL (apply about half) to Network: Hang up
Publish All SSL (no conditional builds) to Network: Hang up
Publish All SSL (after deleting Conditional Builds) to
So, while my problem isn't entirely solved, I at least know
the source of it. My next step is to find out how to apply 1400-odd
Conditional Builds without breaking the publish.
