      This is the output view showing the warning and fatal error:

      I am using TCS2 with linked Framemaker files. I have markers in Framemaker to generate topics (as opposed to RH pagination). I cannot attempt to compile againg without going to Project Settings reseting the Stop List to default then exiting and reopening Robohelp only to receive the same error.

      Next, I tried reseting the Stope List, then deleting all htm files from Robohelp starting with UAS_Airfield_Preferences_and_Properties and all other htm topics derived from the same Frame file. I selected generate file on next update. I exited RH and reopened, this time my output file looks like this:

      Note the text I highlighted red, the file extension of the file with the compilation fail is htmc. However, in RH it displays as htm. Is this a clue to the fatal error? Has anyone seen this? Any suggestions on how to get my project to produce a chm again?
