I managed to add a non-existent image to Project Manager. Well, actually RH8 did it for me. Now I need to know how to delete it.
I am using a drop-down hotspot and wanted to use images other than what RH8 has available. So I added the hotspot and selected a random image to appear at the start of the text. Then I edited the default.css to (among other things) change the image filename on the line:
I mistyped the image name, saved the default.css and went back to work in RH8, creating and previewing content. When my image didn't display, I tracked down the mistyped image name and corrected it.
So now I've got an image file appearing in Project Manager with a mistyped name, and that file never existed. There's a red X on the image icon and the Delete command is unavailable.
How do I get rid of this file from Project Manager?
Paste an image with that incorrect name in the directory and delete it from RoboHelp.
Ah, the simple solutions are the best.
I had to paste it in twice to get it to work. The second time RH8 asked if I wanted to overwrite the file. After that, I could delete the image from the topic and it disappeared from the Project Manager automatically.
