I am using RH8 to update a 300-topic Help for a Web application. The project is named "AddLayers" (name changed to protect the guilty) so we have AddLayers.htm, AddLayers.css, AddLayers.xpj, etc. Along the way, I wanted to do some testing so I moved the "AddLayers.htm" file to a safe spot and created a new project file named AddLayers_1.htm. I did a couple of WebHelp builds and, at this point, I don't remember what I was trying to learn. The AddLayers_1.htm is long gone from the source files but every time I do a WebHelp build, this file shows up in the WebHelp output. Can anyone tell me where this file comes from and how it is created? Also, how to I stop RH8 from creating it? Thanks.
Either that is what you are specifying as the start page in the first page of the wizard or you are specifying a name that is also the name of a topic in the root of the project, likely the default topic. That means RH is being told by you to create a start page and a topic with the same name in the same folder. Windows does not permit that so RH appends _1.
