Hallo, I run RoboHelp for HTML 7.03.001, Windows XP, not on a
network, output to CHM files.
My project has 338 topics and 494 images; and 20 of the
images do not appear in the Project Manager. They display and
compile just fine; this problem is not mission-damaging but strange
and inconvenient (I cannot access the Properties window of the
`missing' images, so I cannot easily see where the image is used).
I opened the CPD file using Access, and there I can see the
problem. In the section "Image List" the path has become embedded
in the field ImageFilename, and the FolderID is set to -2.
For example my folder "Safety" contains safety icons like
"Heavy.bmp" and "Pinch.bmp". The corresponding CPD lines have:
`good' image: ImageFilename = "Heavy.bmp" and FolderID =
`bad' image: ImageFilename = "Safety\Pinch.bmp" and FolderID
I edited the CPD file using Access and corrected the `bad'
line; restarted RoboHelp and the problem appeared solved; the image
was again visible in the Project Manager. But when I deleted the
CPD file, the situation returned to old; Pinch.bmp no longer in the
As a test, I reversed the situation and converted a `good'
image to `bad'; the results were as expected, the image was not
visible on Project Manager but reappeared when I deleted the CPD.
So where is RoboHelp storing the image information? I looked
in the HHP, XPJ and PSS files an found nothing relating to images.
Any other ideas?
