This sounds like your right hand tab stop is just off the end of the ruler. Do you see grey tab stop at the right hand extent of your page? If so, click and drag to to your desired location (i.e. to the end of the white shaded area of your ruler) and you should end up with things as you want.
Read the RoboColum(n).
Thanks for the reply.
Moving the right hand tab stop gets text to wrap at the tab stop. But of course that introduces problems. The Design pod places inline styles for EVERY line: style="margin-right: 169px;" Ugly.
I was hoping for a RH-wide or at least project-wide setting that would allow me to set a default right margin AND avoid the mess of inline styles. The default environment (on my screen at least) gives a Design pod ruler w/ a right hand tab stop at 11 9/16". The pod itself is 10 3/4" wide.
11 9/16" seems a pretty arbitrary width - can't imagine it's a standard of any kind. If it was arbitrarily chosen by the developers, it would be nice to expose a control to end users for setting a default pod width and avoiding the inline styles. Really more for UI usability, not for formatting the document.
(yes, I know, I should just shut up, type away and worry about format in CSS later)
I'd like to offer a wee bit of clarificaition.
There is no such thing as a "Tab Stop" in the world of HTML. As such, there is no such thing as a "Tab Stop" in the RoboHelp HTML ruler. These are simply visual ways to adjust the margins on the HTML page.
I'd hate to see a rash of posts where folks are suddenly asking where they can insert tab stops in RoboHelp HTML.

Hmm, seeing A4 quoted in inches is very odd. :)
The Ruler indeed relates just to the paragraph in focus and sets inline styling for the margin when you drag the sliders for a paragraph. However, they also reflect indenting defined in the stylesheet. So perhaps there is a width defined for the HTML or BODY tags in your stylesheet.
You can get the slider to go off the side of the page if the Zoom % is more than 100%, but that's the only thing in RH I can think of that affects it.
I stumbled across the answer. I managed to fat-finger things and all of a sudden my topic text was tiny. But the scroll bar across the bottom was gone.
Turns out that all my topics open in Design view at 110% by default. Thus a scroll bar across the bottom displays.
Setting the zoom level to 100% cleared the scroll bar and allowed me to see the tab stop on the right margin as well as full lines of text w/out scrolling left to right.
