I have the same issue with RH8 and Windows 7 64 bit. Did you ever find a solution?
Can you please sepcify the creation of topics, seems you have created it through word import?
I am using Word 2007, Win 7, RH8. Even when I created a new project
this happened. I am also working on older projects created in RH X3,
with Word 2000 and Win 2000, opening them in the new RH8 system.
The topic headings were formatted as Heading 1, Arial 14, and were not
based on Normal, and styles are not set to update automatically.
Reading Peter Grainge's website in his Snippets, you will find under
this topic an old message from my co-worker David Hurlston an earlier
fix that worked with earlier versions of RH.
I seem to have found a fix for the problem. It is based on the ImCarol
post in the above snippet. I changed the Heading 1 style to MS Mincho
(did not try other fonts) and compiled. The new style was in the
compiled WinHelp, then I changed the style back to Arial 14. That has
seemed to fix the problem.
It is strange that this problem occured even when creating a new project.
I have also gone through all templates, etc, and made sure that the
Heading 1 is not based on Normal and is not set to auto update.
So far, so good, but any insight you have is appreciated.
The snippet referred to is Snippet 51 and it is worth mentioning in this thread that this is a RoboHelp for Word problem.
Please everyone, always include the version and edition of RoboHelp you are using. For example RoboHelp 9 HTML or RoboHelp for Word 9.
@debull. Say hello to David for me please.

Well, our problem was the opposite, as described in the topic. Here is how it was figured out:
I tested the files and found a little consistency with the issue. It was strange.
This happened within one Word doc.
- When the text was justified, the font was Times New Roman, which was correct.
- When the text was aligned left, the font substituted with Arial.
So the issue occured when converting to Winhelp2000 layout.
This behavior couldn't be affected just changing the alignment, nor copying/pasting
the justified text, it had to be written again from the beginning. Not very nice
solution, when most of the text was aligned "wrong".
It couldn't be treated as a bug, since it has happened only once so far, afaik.
