I looked at Rick's post on this. but following what I think he advised, I chose Select > Default Topic, chose a topic, then nothing happened as far as changing the default topic. what am I missing?
Thanks for all the help from everyone on this topic of changing the Default Topic. I still have a problem when I hit the Select box and select a different file to change the Default Topic. It still keeps the old one.
I'm using RH8. any solution?
Are you fully patched up on RH8? I can change the default in RH 9 fine.
yes, I'm on 8.02.208. I've noticed that the field shows two files as follows:
where "Purpose.htm" is what displays when I generate the project.
the other one, is s6010001_Executive_(EXC)_SDD_122104_files. I don't know what format this is, but there is a folder as well as an htm named this in the project (but without the "files" at the end).
Not quite following you - click on the Select button and you should get a list of all topics. You can either pick the new desired topic off the list or use the dropdown to browse to the desired folder to narrow down the list. Maybe you need to post a shot of what you're seeing when you click the Select button.
You may think we can see that it says:
But in fact all it shows us is this:
So we will have to take your word for it that this is what it says.
What happens if you simply create a totally new topic that says something like this:
HERE IS MY NEW START PAGE
Then ensure it exists at the project root. Configure it to be the new start page. Do you notice it changes then?
Personally I see some issues with what you have. The path seems incredibly long. That can cause issues. And I see a space in what you have posted. The word "Introduction" is appearing as "Introd uction". Not sure if that has anything to do with it or if it's just a typo on your part when entering the post.
