Thank you for your reply.
Why should the CPD and PSS files be set to Ignore?
They are machine specific files so there is no point in having them in source control. If they aren't present when you open the RH project, they are automatically rebuilt. The same could also be said about the HHP and LDB files although here we do add these to source control.
With SVN, ignoring the CPD file gets around that annoying updated icon issue when all you've done is open a project to look at something.

I have a further question, how do I set the CPD to ignore? I use the TortoiseSVN client and if I select the CPD and right click, the only option I can find that mentions 'ignore' is the 'Delete and add to Ignore List'. Is this the option you mean?
Yes. Add to ignore list. I do this with any file that is automatically updated when RoboHelp is opened.
