Hi Kate and welcome to our community
One way you might accomplish this would be by sneaking behind RoboHelp's back and deleting the files using Windows Explorer. This should keep RoboHelp in the dark. I'd probably close the project before doing this.
Give that a go and see how you fare.
Thanks very much for that quick reply. That's a good idea - I don't why I didn't think of it
I deleted some files and they disappeared from Robohelp before my very eyes...then I tried again in another folder and they didn't disappear, but nasty red crosses appeared on their icons. It doesn't seem to matter whether I have Robohelp open or closed - the red crosses appear all the time now.
Any ideas why some topics delete seamlessly, and Robohelp doesn't want to let go of others?
Hi again Kate
I would expect that if RoboHelp was aware of all the files, all that you delete would appear in RoboHelp as being listed with the red X. The red X signifies that RoboHelp is unable to find the file. It's a clue to you, the help developer, that something is amiss and needs to be addressed.
I'm not sure why some would just disappear while others would behave as expected. Unless, of course, you had multiple copies of certain files.
