Using RH7 HTML, and VSS version control. Have been using without problem for 2 years. Now I had to get a new computer
set up, VSS seems to be correctly set up with RoboHelp, and asks to 'get latest' when I open a project, in the usual way.
However, each time I try to edit a topic in RH now, I am prompted to check out the topic.This should happen automatically. the RH tip that displays says:
"To turn off prompts when performing version control tasks manually, clear the option on the version control tab. Files are then checked out automatically.
Note: Files not selected in the list cannot be checked out."
this is unclear - there IS no version control tab, and which option are they saying to clear? there is a version control toolbar, and File>Version Control menu, neither of which has a 'prompt checkout' option.
I need not to check out manually every time!
Use the Tools > Options menu. There should be a "Version Control" tab in that dialog box.
Excellent - the right fix. Too bad the Help text is not very clear.
