    RoboHelp 8 crashes when clicking See Also tab of Design-Time Control Properties


      My project was previously in RoboHelp 7 and is a merged project. I copied a topic with see also buttons and want to edit the links. I right click the button and select Design-Time Control [name] Properties and click the See Also tab. RoboHelp crashes every single time. Error message:


      EventType : BEX P1 : RoboHTML.exe P2 : P3 : 4944f3bb
      P4 : CLIENTMONTEREYDB.dll P5 : P6 : 4944e14d P7 : 000016aa
      P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000



      One thing that is a little strange is that some of the buttons have Design-Time Control [object1] Properites and some have Design-Time Control [RelatedTopic] Properties, but all have the See Also tab.


      If I insert a new See Also button using Insert > See Also, the menu choice is Design-Time Control [See Also] Properties and the tab is See Also. Click the tab and RoboHelp crashes.


      If I insert a new Related Topics button using Insert > Related Topics, the menu choice is Design-Time Control [Related Topic] Properties and the tab is called Related Topics. Click the tab and RoboHelp does not crash.


      I have a whole lot of these buttons I need to modify, so I'd appreciate if anyone knows of a solution to this problem.


      Sample HTML for an offending button:
