    Lost Chunks of Content After Conversion from .HLP

    MaritimeGirl Level 1

      I have 26 .HLP files that we converted from .HLP into RoboHelp HTML.

       

      At first glance everything seemed fine.  Then we noticed the stylesheets got a little messed up and colours were changed but those were easy enough to fix.  Then we noticed that some topics were missing large chunks of data.

       

      I opened a newly created .htm file for a corrupted topic and then opened the old .HLP file and looked at the same topic.

       

      Sometimes indents were converted to numbers such as the following example.

       

      .HLP topic

       

      Line One

           First Line

      Line Two

           Second Line

      Line Three

           Third Line

      Line Four

           Fourth line

       

      .HTM topic file created by RoboHelp by conversion:

       

      Line One

           1.

      Line Two

           1.

      Line Three

           1.

      Line Four

           1.

       

      Here's another example which seemed to vomit when it encountered numbered lists:

      My List

      I     First

      II     Second

      III     Third

      IV     Fourth

      V     Fifth

      VI     Sixth

       

      .HTM topic file

      My List

      1.

      2.

      3.

      4.

      5.

      6.

       

      So far in one of the projects, I've noticed 50% of the newly created .htm files are missing content.

       

      Has anyone else encountered this?  Is there a setting that we missed (hopefully) when we converted from .HLP?
