Welcome to the forum.
When you refer to the topic list in the left pane, I wonder if you are looking at the Table of Contents or Project Manager.
If a topic is in the Topic List, it is going to be in Project Manager. The TOC though is something that you have to manually edit.
Hi Peter, thanks for the Welcome.
Definitely not looking at the TOC. It's actually the Project tab that shows the HTML Files listing. The files are missing from there, but they do show up in the right pane with the Topics tab selected.
The real crux of the problem is that we're migrating to DITA and outputting HTML from there and hoping to pull that back into RH. There are issues, the biggest of whic is not only this, but now we're seeing that RH is choking on French (translated) content. Can't wait to get off this and use DITA exclusively, but don't have a backend frameset in the short term.
Can you create this in something you can send me? I don't think I have ever seen a situation where files show in the topic list and not project manager.
Do the topics have something in their title tag?
Have you tried switching from View By File Name to View By Title?
Have you tried the Expand All option to see if somehow the files are hiding somewhere else?
I can send you a screen shot, but this reply tool doesn't let me attach a file. Do you have an email you'd like to share?
Also, even though our French content compiles fine with a 1252 charset, the RH TOC, Index, and Search tabs still mangle some of the text (but the browser renders it fine). Any tricks to get RH to recognize the appropriate 1252 characters (the project is set to French). The tab labels are fine, and the content in the .hhc etc. are fine, but RH still seems to choke when rendering the content in its tabs/frame set
You can contact me via my site but you've suddenly started talking about new issues but not covered my last questions.
Got it! I'll send you a note. I'll answer your last questions there.
If file names have diacritical marks, RH may not like them.
Thanks, Harvey, but the file names have only standard characters in their names. They do have underscores, but so did all the others during the long history of this existing RH project.
