    Broken Links Index Keyword

    msiano
      Hello All,

      I have a bunch of index keywords that show up under Broken Links and I can't seem to resolve them. RoboHelp help has a topic, "Removing topic references from keywords" but their procedure doesn't work for me. If anyone has figured out a fix, let me know.

          Well, I think I got it figured out. This may not be the best way, but I'll share it with the community anyway in case anyone else needs it.

          1. In RoboHelp go to Tools > Reports > Broken links.
          2. Save the report to a text file.
          3. Close RoboHelp (it'll crash later if you don't)
          4. Find the .hhk file in the project folder (back it up before starting)
          5. Open the .hhk file with WordPad.
          6. Copy part of the "Missing Topic" path from the report and search for it in the .hhk file.
          7. When you find the keyword reference, delete everything between the <li><object type="text/sitemap"></object> tags.
          8. Save the .hhk

          Note: after doing this, I had to restart my computer before I could open a topic in RH without it crashing.
