    Paragraphs being reordered (bullets involved as usual)

    SABU66

      Does anybody know why RoboHelp is rearranging my paragraphs so that all the bullets on a page are grouped together in Help whereas in the manual they are separated by normal paragraphs. For example, this text in the manual:

       

      CAD plans typically require editing and restructuring before they are suitable for importing into the <Content replaced by forum moderator at user's request>; this process is termed 'cleaning' Two main types of CAD are used within <Content replaced by forum moderator at user's request>:

      • Presentation CAD
      • Simulation CAD

      Presentation CAD lines provide useful contextual information about the pedestrian venue but they are not true obstacles; examples include:

      • Text
      • Stair flights and landings
      • Escalator landings, comb lines and work points

      Presentation CAD can also provide useful reference points for object snaps when creating and placing Activity Objects.
      Simulation CAD lines represent objects that are genuine obstacles to pedestrians; examples include:

      • Walls
      • Balustrades and railings
      • Ticket gates
      • Windows
      • Door leaves
      • Furniture
      • Vehicles

       

      Ends up like this in the Help:

      As you can imagine it's driving me crazy. It happens throught a very large help file. All I know how to do right now is edit the HTML pages from inside RoboHTML, which is far from ideal. Anyone know how I can get Robohelp to respect the position of the paragraphs automatically?

       

      The HTML for the erroneous copy is as follows:

       

      <h1><a name=TOC_Preparing_a_CAD_plan></a><a name=XREF_Preparing_a_CAD_plan></a>Preparing
      a CAD plan</h1>
